If I had my wish, the whole DFW area would be a hell of a lot better if it was less dense than it is now. These "density" claims are about as irrelevant as the damned diversity claims. Who gives a rats ass?

COOL STORY. Moderator cut: see comment I'm simply stating that if we annexed some suburbs to catch up landwise, we would catch up population wise as well. : smack:

You'll get nothing but constant obfuscation from these folks. In short, you're arguing with a signboard. Although I could care less about the population, density, etc. I understand your point. Clearly there are some on here with cognitive disabilities.

I don't give a **** about the airport. We have one of the worlds busiest airports.
big difference is that Dallas only has one airport in its city limits Son. No matter how big DFW airport is, it does not contribute to how large DFW city limits are

what you are trying to say is that if Dallas gobbled enough burbs to be the size of Houston it would have similar pops. I got that. now I am telling you you are gobbling up neighborhoods when Houston has a ton of land that people cannot live on. so you are trying to get 500 sq miles of residential land for Dallas and 350 for Houston and say oh, look in the same area they have the same pop.

sorry Gov'ner no cricket.
Why don't you take away Love Field from Dallas and IAH. Hobby, Ellington field from Houston, along with Cullen Park, GB park etc etc.

You will be left with about 350 sq miles. Now add up land around Dallas to get to 350sq miles and see what you get.

lol well then all the extra land that you are proposing to get would go towards a real airport in Dallas's city limits and an overflow airport, a Space Center, A huge ass ship Channel and some good sized parks. Both cities have tons of flood plain land, that cancels out each other.

Sorry Gov'ner, the residential areas of Dallas and Houston are already the same, Houston just has more people.

Thanks for arguing for the sake of arguing. Moderator cut: off topic/personal I guess you aren't familiar with Love Field's redo. I forgot Dallas doesn't have any good sized parks. I'll give it to you on the Space Center but I find space to be extremely boring so, personally, I'm not missing out. Once again, I forgot THAT WE HAVE ONE OF THE WORLDS LARGEST AIRPORTS THAT BORDERS OUR CITY LIMITS. And that two of the 4 largest airlines are based out of here..

Houston:



Dallas:


I know the maps are not on the same scale, but you can see what I am talking about, Houston doesn't even begin to cover up all the city limits. Lots of big things in there taking up lotsa land.

At least 1/5 of the land is non residential, while in Dallas it looks like the city limits are covered with residences from end to end.
