Austin is very close to both Dallas and Houston which are huge cities. Most of you people in California whining have probably never been to Austin. It's a gorgeous town and sixth street will be an absolute crazy party for F1. I'm definitely going.

2.) Texas is not exactly paradise so get off your high horse there partner, or maybe layoff the moonshine. CA steeped in failure, yah ok, you keep believing that one cowboy. I would rather smash my knuckles with a 2x4 than ever live in Houston or Dallas. Maybe you should check your facts before going on some ignorant tirade, apparently your budget is just as messed up as California's. See link below and be prepared to tuck tail between legs.
Seriously are you joking, you only wish you could live here in Northern California.... get real.
You sound mad in the latter portion of your reply. I don't believe Muffnbluff ever said it was paradise. I think his point was just that you shouldn't discredit the city so easily.
Welcome to the forums, but please try not to put words into other people's mouths.
