    Yeah, I don't care if it's a DRY heat or not. A convection oven is DRY heat, but it's still miserable, stifling, and oppressive. I lived in Vegas for 10 years and grew up in, and am now living in Houston again, and I will take the humidity over 115 degree dry heat anyday. In Vegas, there is no such thing as a cool breeze in the summer. When the wind blows, it feels like a blowdryer blasting your face. Sweating is unpleasant, but I can deal with it.

    Vegas doesn't have the 300 pound water bugs. I'll pass. Houston is trashy.

    Houston has its bad points (traffic, pollution, BUGS), but I love it. There's so much diversity and culture here, unlike Vegas where you couldn't find it with a microscope. It's all plastic and fake. And I've never met or seen more trash in my life than in that god-forsaken hell hole that is Las Vegas. And those were the locals, not the tourists.

    Oh yeah Houston is great. They sentence more people to death there than any city or state other than Texas as a whole and Virginia. The culture is watered down TexMex. You can get it better in San Antonio. Oh, did I mention REDNECK???

    one good thing about humidity is that you never need to moisturize

    Agreed. It's also very difficult to be a professional in this town. After I finish my master's, I look forward to leaving.

    I've been to San Antonio many times, and yes, you CAN get watered down TexMex better there. Houston, on the other hand, represents a multitude of cultures, as well as thriving museum and theater districts, beautiful parks, and some of the best restaurants in the country...one of the reasons we're so fat and sweaty. Say what you want about Houston (even the stereotypical redneck remarks), it's a fabulous city and if you despise it so much for whatever reason, stay the hell out, you won't be missed.

    i've noticed that people from texas and toronto are very proud of where they are.

    just go to any bar in toronto, whenever some famous person mention 'toronto' on the television everyone starts cheering gene simmons spoke about it, he said , "dude, stop being idiots!"

    I'm originally from Texas and it is ingrained in us from birth that we are TEXANS. It's funny--a friend of mine was in London on some group tour thing. When someone would ask various members where they were from, most of them said "America" or the "United States." The Texans, however, always said "Texas."

    Stereotypical but OH SO TRUE. My Uncle Bubba who drives a truck with a gunrack and makes his own bullets sure doesn't live in Dallas! (His real name is OF COURSE not Bubba. It's Harley Cleo.)
