Shouldn't there be a limit on how many idiotic threads you can start til your account is deleted? This troll does not speak for me or any other Texans so please disregard him.

You just proved yourself wrong. TX has some good universities, but none are that high ranking. You need to go to the NE or CA for that, mostly.

And again ppl are equating cosmopolitan to things that do not accurately describe a cosmopolitan area. Some people......lmfao

It just annoys me b/c the complex that TXans have is so unattractive to everyone else.
Everyone is unattractive on this forum when they speak the "truth" about their cities (excluding TXguy who exaggerates big time). You'll hear more Texans on here though because the majority of the people on this forum are ignorant, uniformed , or clueless about what goes on down here in Texas.

Ever heard of Rice or UT or Baylor or Texas Tech. Just because you happened to grew up in some small backwards town in Texas, don't sit here and judge all of us and Houston at that.

I exaggerate because I speak truth??? Sorry that me and you don't share the same opinions or thoughs but I have no need to exaggerate anything about Houston. It's Houstonians like you who keep Houston from reaching its full attention, always doubting it and dumbing the city down.
