6. Everybody works in oil and gas
Yes, we’re an energy capital (don’t hate us 'cause you ain’t us), but there are plenty of jobs outside of Big Oil. We have the largest medical center in the world, more than 40 colleges, a theater district that is second only to NYC's, and a crap ton of bars and restaurants, for starters.
7. "Houston, we have a problem"
...was not the actual quote from the astronauts on "Apollo 13." Instead, it went like this: "Okay, Houston, we've had a problem here." When control asked the astronauts to repeat, they responded, "Houston, we've had a problem. We've had a main B bus undervolt." Not as catchy, is it?
