    Austin is full of Drugs?
    Humm… That's odd. Must be the hippy crowd I'm not aware of.

    Just remember TX is a red state. It's just a fact.
    Austin, DFW, and Houston are basically little blue islands in a waterworld of Red. You'll actually be right at home just about any medium sized city on the I35 corridor.

    If you are indeed moving to TX; just remember not to make a judgement call based upon what others tell you.
    Texas is like a whole other country.

    Quoted from SunKing:

    that's why my wife and I purchased some land in the Texas Hill Country.

    Been thinking the same thing... I need room for a PinRanch.

    Quoted from Dent00:

    neither is a Dr. Pepper,

    IN TX; Dr Pepper is it's own food group. Started in Waco.
    DO NOT come to TX and expect to order DP as Coke. You must specify it by name.
    You'll probably be run out of the state if you ask for Mr Pibb.

    I have several friends who only drink DP... while, I myself boycott DP because of the way Snapple treated the original bottler - Dublin Dr Pepper. https://www.bevnet.com/news/2012/dublin-dr-pepper-fans-start-dps-boycott/

    I wasn't able to find:
    "Bottled Up - The Battle Over Dublin Dr. Pepper"
    on Netflix... but did find it on Amazon Prime Video.

    Quoted from marcus0202:

    I am apparently the only one on my street not packing. Then there are the mosquitos.

    I'll tell you why... Haven't you experienced the size of the mosquitos in Houston? You need to pack heat to protect yourself!

    Quoted from xsvtoys:

    Some dude said to him, “nice sneakers, are you gay?”

    I assume that was decades ago.
    Cause that don't happen in Austin. Everyone wears sneakers or hipster flipflops.

    Quoted from Billy16:

    Austin isn't Texas. He laughed and knew exactly what I was talking about, and said Austin was about the only place in Texas he would fit in.

    Unfortunately; that is very true. Austin is the So Cal of Texas. All the So Cal people are selling their 3/4mill houses and moving to Austin at 100ish per day; and jacking up our property values. One hand great, the other... I just spent a new Stern pinball machine in Property Taxes. :sigh:

    As others have stated; I can live with a NIB property tax; as long as the state remains Income Tax free. Thankfully; we passed a bond last year which prevents the legislative body from inacting an income tax without voter approval (IIRC).
