I almost did about 5 years ago when I interviewed with Northrup Grumman there. Their F-16 simulator there was pretty cool. It seemed okay, but nothing grabbed me and said "move down here ASAP!".

If I decide to move to Bushland I'll go to Austin.  Dallas?  No thanks.

Personally, I like Western Massachusetts.  All we deal with is some snow and ice - no killer bees, alligators, hurricanes, or earthquakes, none that you'd actually notice anyway. There are some rattlesnakes hidden away somewhere that no one ever sees, and one person a year seems to get bitten by a bad spider. I think we had a tornado once, though it just seemed like a warm weather Nor'easter.

Yes, I have no life.  I actually think of these things some days!  I'd like to move to a warmer clime eventually, but then  I remember the weather, the creepie crawlies, and the 'gators...  paranoid

Oh, and we only have traffic while UMASS is in sesssion, the best time of year the stude-nuts are gone!  Tongue

Gators? The only gators around here are in the zoo. It's not like Dallas is built on top of wetlands. The only wildlife I've seen near my house are squirrels and cotton tails. Personally, I'd like to live somewhere else considering my sinuses blow up every spring and fall like they're doing right now.

Oops! Can you tell Geography was my worst subject in school? I really have no clue where DFW is, and apparently only a vague idea where Texas is.  I watch a lot of Animal Precinct, and must be confusing the Miami officers with the Dallas ones.  Sorry, lol.  retard

Those are issued at the border.  That, and an irrational mental tick to use words like "Ya'll" and "Ifn'ya".

A few years back a very good friend of mine got a job in Houston, and I harassed him endlessly about it.  Ya know, just rubbing some salt in the wound as they say. I visited him several times and afterwords swore up and down it would be a cold day in hell before I'd move to Texas.  Lo and behold, a few years go by, a nice job opportunity came up, and I now live just a couple of blocks from my friend I so endlessly teased.  And I've never been so damn miserable in my life!  Karma is a bitch I guess, ugh.  Oh well, I'm high tailing it back out of this state come summer.  No damn job is worth it.

Wow, you've got that completely backward. Houston is America's armpit (seriously, it's the biggest cesspool of a town I've ever lived in), while Dallas is pretty nice. Austin is a great place to visit, but I can't say I'd want to live there.

It's a north/south rivalry. Everyone I've known who was born/raised in either Houston or Austin can't stand Dallas, and vice versa. I think Austin is quaint, while Houston outright sucks. Dallas is pleasant but the allergies here are killer.

I was raised in DC slywink  So that, combined with having lived for at least two years in every major Texas city, indicates that I have an unbiased and obviously correct viewpoint.    nod

Holy sweet mother.  Completely agree.  Dallas is LA without the good weather.  It's an awful, awful place.  Austin is on the short list of 'Places I would live if forced to vacate the SF Bay Area'.  Houston is average, but way nicer than Dallas.

That being said, Dallas has hot chicks.  But so does Austin.  Houston... not so much.

I do as a matter of fact, having done some research first-hand while out there last year. Somehow I doubt that costs of both real estate and everyday essentials has miraculously decreased in that time. slywink A shame really. Though if I ever won the lottery I'd be out there in a flash.  icon_biggrin

Dallas-Ft. Worth tops population growth among US cities. This explains why my commute is taking longer and longer each day.

PASS

I'm not fond of the state I live in currently, but I've always hated Texas and would never move there.

A few years back a very good friend of mine got a job in Houston, and I harassed him endlessly about it.  Ya know, just rubbing some salt in the wound as they say. I visited him several times and afterwords swore up and down it would be a cold day in hell before I'd move to Texas.  Lo and behold, a few years go by, a nice job opportunity came up, and I now live just a couple of blocks from my friend I so endlessly teased.  And I've never been so damn miserable in my life!  Karma is a bitch I guess, ugh.  Oh well, I'm high tailing it back out of this state come summer.  No damn job is worth it.

You know.. if you live inside the loop, Houston's pretty cool.  That said, i just moved to Austin.   But Dallas sucks.

Wow, you've got that completely backward. Houston is America's armpit (seriously, it's the biggest cesspool of a town I've ever lived in), while Dallas is pretty nice. Austin is a great place to visit, but I can't say I'd want to live there.

JEEBUS!!!   eek  I've never seen someone be dead wrong three times in one sentence before.  Crazy times. 

Holy sweet mother.  Completely agree.  Dallas is LA without the good weather.  It's an awful, awful place.  Austin is on the short list of 'Places I would live if forced to vacate the SF Bay Area'.  Houston is average, but way nicer than Dallas.

That being said, Dallas has hot chicks.  But so does Austin.  Houston... not so much.

I don't get how anyone can think Houston is even average. The whole city smells, it has an awful highway system, there's no zoning, and it has some of the worst urban sprawl in the country. Dallas certainly isn't the best city in the world (there are a ton of places I'd rather live) but it's generally clean, the highway system is much improved, and it's very livable. It doesn't have a ton of personality like Austin, but at least it doesn't have a crappy personality like Houston.

Wacky!

I just spent 10 days at a customer site, in Irving. Didn't get to do much, worked like a dog. I missed the mountains .  icon_confused
