(Unfortunately or fortunately, I needed a point of reference, so things are compared to the Pacific Northwest from time to time.)
DE BIER IN T3XA5
DE BIER IN PNW
Texans must love parties and cheap domestic beer. Folks up in the doom n' gloom world love wide varieties of craft beer.
Both photos were taken in a local convenience store in da burbs.

Look! Concrete transmission lines! I haven't seen these since Japan. I'm guessing it's because of tornados. This was in a "newer" area. I haven't seen them since.

Apparently, the only one of its kind in the entirety of America. It's in Frisco which is a short drive north of Dallas. I got an educator discount dispite not being and educator anymore. All I did was show my Japanese drivers liscense, said "I taught English in Japan", and boom-shock-a-lock-a; TWO DOLLARS OFF!
The museum takes you through the history of video games. I'm not a gamer guy but I'm pretty sure dey had every console.
I'm not going to show you all the pictures but this place was well worth it. If you plan to visit, it's honestly a great museum. The NVM is also attached to a kidz science museum and a few other projects still in development. I'm betting in a few years, this place will be so sick that it's terminal!

If I see it again, I'll give it a try. I might have to pinch my nose.
But as they like to say:
"Can't diss diss... 'till you tried diss"
I like peanuts and peanut butter so maybe it's ok.

Super Dooper Nice and Polite People!
If there was a reason to move here, it would be for the people. Everytime I visit, I'm blown away by the hospitality and kindness of strangers.
DISS WARNING (this is for the college kids)
After being in Japan for six years, I thought that people from the NW would still be kind and cool. Yes, they are cool. That is why we have a phenomenon known as the Seattle freeze. This is where you're like " hey stranger, let's hangout"
And they're like "ok"
Then you call them up and they are like "sorry, I'm melancholy today and have to listen to death cab for cutie" Then later you find out they went to hangout with friends from kindergarten.
There are quality people up here but it always seems like everyone has a socially awkward and autistic vibe to them, myself included. Out in Teaxs, I was welcomed by all sorts of people. My favorite was women thinking I was diabetic. They called me "honey" and "sweetie" all the time. That was weird but cool.
Anyhow, I'm sure I'll be back in the land of Texas! Until then...
