  1. That was probably THE best way to get out of downtown and to the Hardy to boogie on up to the airport during afternoon rush hour...
  2. Looks to me like they just ruined another perfectly good roadway structure, all in the name of tax dollars.
  3. Along with more traffic, more congestion, more light pollution, more idiots that can't drive, more crime, etc...
  4. Another pristine piece of what was the Katy prairie, gone. Sad indeed.
  5. I would have much preferred to see that farm still there. All of the little pieces of country in Katy are being gobbled up at a massive rate by the developers, and personally, I think it sucks. Majorly.
  6. There's a family rumor that my Great Grandfather patched up the radiator on a car of B & C's, not realizing who they really were... Sadly, My G-Grandfather passed shortly after I was born, and as a jackwagon youngster, I never spoke to my Great Grandmother about it before she passed on...
  7. It's my facebook avatar. We did this silly family thing on facebook years ago, where everyone changed their profile pics to llamas, and I liked mine, so I never changed it.
  8. That was the church that my grandmother (and some of my other obscure family members) attended for several years. I had relatives buried there. I still seethe when I pass that damned H-E-B.
  9. Little pig little pig, let me in....
  10. One teensy little thing though... For those of y'all who keep mentioning underground trains, it would never work. Much of Houston was built on swampland, remember? Those floods that we get, the high water table, the silty sand underneath all the concrete, the fault line under Richmond Ave. that causes you to play out your "I'm riding a bull in the rodeo" fantasies as you bounce down it... He was right in the article when he said that Metro's ridership is dismal. Driving around every day, (I drive for a living.) I hardly ever see a full city route bus. They just don't happen. Yes, the P&R buses get utilized, (somewhat) but that's a different kettle of fish.
  11. Where's the shifter? And personally, I think the Cadillac CT6 is a much better looking car.
  12. I remember that being a field at one point in time, and it was where a spur of the old two lane blacktop from FM 529 ran through previous to that.
  13. I'm quite a bit late to this party, but.... Why in the holy hell would anyone want to tear apart another stretch of I-45 for a park, or parking, or any other such nonsense? With there being over 6.5 million in the greater Houston Metro area, many of them using that corridor, that would be a terrible and very costly mistake. Our traffic is borked bad enough as it is, and y'all are only asking... nigh, BEGGING for it to become much worse with an idea like this. Or so it seems, from what I'm reading here. Would anyone care to enlighten this knuckle dragging neanderthal?
  14. Ground based Pilot, ie, Executive Transportation Specialist.
  15. It IS kinda fun fun to go bombing down Broadway doing about 45mph though, sometimes....
  16. Great. So, our tax dollars will be hard at work feeding, clothing and educating this scumbag.
  17. That story merely had a bittersweet ending. It would have been much better with more dead bad guy...
  18. Hardy Toll Road is quicker and safer than 45 and 59 both...
  19. Score another INTJ...... INTJ Introvert(78%) iNtuitive(12%) iNtuitive Thinking(62%) Judging(11%) You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (78%) You have slight preference of Intuition over Sensing (12%) You have distinctive preference of Thinking over Feeling (62%) You have slight preference of Judging over Perceiving (11%)
  20. It needs to be re-named the Transco Tower, the way it belongs...lol
  21. Someone's gonna have to spend a buttload of money on Windex.....lol
  22. Pardon my ignorance, but what's so special about that place?
