Well Mr Buffet on the surface appears to not pull the wool over anyone's eyes (ie play you). It's capitalism and Warren is free too be successful or not. Now Texas (the topic here) another entirely different story. What you see is NOT what you get. Someone on this thread commented that the people matter and THAT'S the difference IMO. The economy is a wash if the people are all charlatans.

Nebraska has a lot more German and Scandinavian influence as a whole. Texas is more of a mixed bag. In my experience, the typical Texan might be a little more outgoing than the typical Nebraskan who would be a very pleasant person but much more reserved. This is obviously a bit of a stereotype but I think it would hold true to some degree.

I have been in local restaurants in central Nebraska and every one was speaking German. However they do speak perfect English, but it is obvious that for some of them Germen is their first language. During WWII German POW's were sent to Nebraska to work in the fields. When the war was over a large number of them stayed.

Well, I live currently in Minnesota so that won't be much of a change ie, "reserved people." I'm looking at getting back to the dry air (semi-arid) in the panhandle. I had a tough time with the humidity this past Summer. BIG mistake to move back here. Still need answers on transportation (how to get around) and rents ie Scottsbluff, Gering, and Sidney all in a line with each other. I still believe Scottsbluff would be my best option: seat of action ie hospital, shopping etc. Thanks and 2016 here we come!

Texas has a higher elevation than Nebraska with a more scenic view?
Texas has a lot of history on this small island compared to this land history in Nebraska?
