Well, the 913 may represent his area code which is Kansas City, KS. Not trying to taking anything away from Kansas City since I always have fun when I go there, but Dallas and Houston are powerhouses when it comes to amenities. Cannot say the same for Kansas City.

LOL I must admit I did not see that coming, like Cowboysfan I figured you would post Chicago or KC something like that...

So this begs the question, did you escape the suck of Houston by moving to Sugarland, or do you still consider yourself as living in the suck !

Sounds like most cities, although not quite as extreme as your description.

This thread is not dumb at all. It is an honest articulation of one posters opinion of a city he obviously enjoyed. What's dumb about that ?

The O.C. and Fort Bend County are both suburban counties riding on the coattails of the neighboring larger county (1st and 3rd most populous, respectively). Though, Alief is technically in Harris County but borders Fort Bend with some overspill into it.

FBC is not as developed south of the river and the O.C. has been (over)developed for at least 50 years to the point that the whole county is settled. FBC might take 50 years to reach O.C. levels of development, especially in South County (Needville). I predict a separate freeway system for the FBC, like the O.C., attached to the Houston hub-and-spoke to accommodate the massive population size.

I'm not dense at all , you know that. I do think the OP of this thread was just as genuine with his true intent for creating this thread as other OP's on the Texas forum are for creating many of their threads
