Puhlease....Everyone is wrong. Everyone ought to know that Burlington, ON (Canada) is the very best city in the world.

One of the things that makes it way better than Houston is that Litos doesn't live in Burlington. Can we all agree that makes it superior right there?

although the tweets represent a minority, I don't think they should be ignored. the worst part is that we pride ourselves on having access and freedom to information. we have a plethora of resources: schools, teachers, professors, libraries, books, internet, etc. theres no excuse for being so fucking stupid. you really have to actively keep yourself uneducated to get to that level.

it's understandable to be ignorant in a poor and/or restrictive country, but this shit shouldn't be happening here.

i would say the "party goer density" is greater in a smaller Austin that Houston or Dallas lol.

Austin is a gimmicky college town - lots of smoking hot dumb Longhorns flood the streets every weekend to hipster out and relax.

you'll have fun in Austin, definitely.

and that somewhat proves my point.

Houston isn't even on the list - and it proves what i've been saying all along - it's definitely less dense than Boston, Philly, Chicago and Miami, EVEN THOUGH we have more people than Boston, Philly and Miami....

I wasn't trying to say that Houston isn't dense. my point was that cities don't purposely extend their borders to skew population density numbers. theres separate data for city and metro area.

and i doubt there's anything concrete that really proves either method skews the numbers drastically one way or the other.....

My point is, who gives a shit about how large the CITY limits are when when the land area around the city, that makes up 3x the sq miles as the city limit sq miles, calls themselves the city. If you expand the city of Tampa limits to include the unincorporated areas around it, you'd have essentially the same population as Houston and obviously the same density since the size would be about the same. What difference does it make? There is NO difference. Except all the police cars in Houston say Houston PD.

The only difference between where i live and living inside the city limits are 3 things.

Different law enforcement agency.

Different address for waste collection.

Different permitting office.

That's all. Other than that, for all intents and purposes, i live in Tampa, and my address proves it. (even though i don't live in the city limits)

what? its not a different method. same method applied to a different area. if you compare a city whose area is as large as another city's entire metro area, is that really an apples to apples comparison? not even sure why density is such an issue or how this got brought up lol

Yea, you're going to have a blast in Austin. Dirty 6th is packed from sidewalk to sidewalk on Halloween. It's one of the busiest nights of the year which is saying a lot.

There is no better place to party within a 3 miles radius in Texas than in downtown Austin.

Do any of these towns offer a nearby curvey road to drive on? Beautiful forest? A ski area? Anything besides oppressive weather? You know...like most towns in the rocky mountains on west?

So...Miss America

HAHAHAHAA!!!!! no you wouldn't !!!!!

you could take Tampa, Orlando and every single little bitty farm town in that spread and there STILL wouldn't be as many people as Houston has in it.

are you high right now !?!?

because someone tried to express a false fact that "there are so many people in Houston that everyone is all over eachother".

Houston residents are not all over eachother because of how huge the city actually is in square mileage....

Houston addresses stretch about 40 miles in either direction - north, south, east, west

Philly and Boston aren't probably 40 miles wide COMBINED !!!!
