    Texas really isn't as bad as many people believe. I have family in Austin and they say it's great.

    Pretty much the same could be true for any city. Some people will have a better time than others. I only spent three days in Austin and thought it was great. I'll probably go back and spend more time there to get a better assessment.

    I have always heard Austin is by far the coolest, hippest city in Texas....

    Yes. But this thread is about Roadragerob and his personal agenda against Austin. Why people why?!?!?

    You are failing to realize that there is a significant difference between seeing a city or place as a tourist and a resident. I lived in Austin for almost ten years and that was the loneliest decade of my life. People in Austin for the most part were unfriendly, extremely arrogant and didn't seem to have a pleasant word for anyone else but themselves. The cost of living there is astronomical yet the wage scale is lousy. The city is architecturally ugly and it is mostly suburban style sprawl. There is absolutely nothing urban about Austin. Nightlife in Austin both gay and straight clearly mediocre. I have had better times in other cities. Another thing, I was almost mugged in Austin walking home from a gay club but I managed to out run the little knife wielding bastard. This happened in a very good and safe part of town where crime is quite rare. I never had that happen to me before in any other city and I have spent time in many cities that are supposedly dangerous in terms of crime. Making friends in Austin, virtually impossible. People will say they will be your friend and all that good stuff and than stick a knife in your back at the drop of a hat. Austinites are not friendly people and many long time residents just don't like what has happened to their town over the years. As for that beautiful Texas hill country on the western side of town and beyond that is nothing more than a bunch of brown, scrub covered molehills. WTF is so beautiful about thaticon_question.gif Austin is a town of marginal personalities, flakes, and flunkies. As far as I am concerned, the best that could ever happen to Austin is a massive tornado tearing right through it in much the same way as in Moore, Oklahoma last year. Mother nature would help us eradicate some massive urban blight off the face of the earth.

    ^Isnt Austin the most progressive, liberal city in all of Texas? Maybe you would be happier and more your crowd in El Paso, Lubbock, Mckinney or Waco?

    Yeah, that is what you think, you obviously have a lot to learn. Texans don't like outsiders and that is a proven fact.

    Those towns are loaded with NARROW MINDED BIBLE THUMPING SCREWBALLS, the group that I blame for ruining the GOP. FYI, Austin also has its fair share of right wing religious fanatics. It is not quite as bad as Waco or McKinney but it isn't all that much better either.

    With Jackson Mississippi to the east, Oklahoma City to the north and the entire state of Texas, you are surrounded by bible thumping screw balls, so I am a bit confused as to your complaint, maybe leave Texas? icon_confused.gif

    FYI, I left Texas and its horribly overrated capital city behind quite awhile ago.

    I went to university in Austin, Texas and it was, and still is, the best city in my books. The people there are different - they can be self-absorbed at times, but they're good people. It's a very fit city with tons of stuff to do - Formula 1 Racing, #sxsx, Austin City Limits Festival, and so many more activities throughout the year. Austin is also a city full of love. Love for great food, live music and good times with friends.

    So, I can only come to the conclusion that this Rob with road rage got his heart broken in Austin. He might have hit on some hipster that wasn't really gay, he just came across as an open-minded guy because it's part of the 'culture' and this Bob guy was heartbroken. Or maybe Bob the Builder never went out to experience Austin, 6th Street, the Live Music Capital of the World, etc. Maybe the influx of people moving in, raised the cost of living, and forced him out of the city. And now he's being a little bitch about it.

    I don't know. But Austin, Texas has treated me so well. I made tons of friends and had so many experiences I wouldn't trade for the world. My love for Austin runs deep.

    If anyone finds themselves venturing through Texas, don't listen to bobby. Spend some time in Austin and get lost in the moment.

    FYI, I have experienced Sixth Street and all those so called great festivals and they were nothing more than pricey, glorified carnivals. Great food whereicon_question.gif Food in Austin was all that cheap Tex-Mex crap or McDonalds and not much of anything else. Open Minded and Austin definitely do not mix because the people of that city are so arrogant and self absorbed that they become totally unaware of others around them. There really isn't much to experience because Austin isn't much of a city in the first place. It is just a lot of ugly suburban sprawl. In fact Austin is a hideous blight on the Earth's surface.

    Why would anyone want to waste time and money travelling across a huge, flat, featureless nothing state like Texas when there are so many better, more beautiful, and friendlier states to visit. Who wants to visit that torrid, humid land of right wing barbarians. Most Texans distrust and dislike outsiders so that is a state best avoided. I wish that Texans would just quit flapping their jaws in the breeze and get the process for secession started so that us Americans can finally get rid of them and grant their desolate, flat state permanent national sovereignty. I don't consider Texans to be my fellow Americans because they don't want to be Americans. They just want to be Texans. Fine, do the US a long overdue favor and secede because we really don't need you backward, redneck motherfuckers.

    No, he wasn't, and that's exactly the reason why he's so bitter.
