What subsidized industries/companies are surprising? - cahoots
I was surprised to learn how much each city tends to subsidize technology companies like IBM. Of course, I can also understand the perceived benefits. Another one - Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's. They tend to get huge subsidies everywhere they build. It almost seems as though most larger compan...

Work clothing that prevents you from getting promoted - cahoots
I don't really pay attention to how other dudes dress at the office unless you look like a complete joke. Khaki slacks with black shoes? Are you 12? Square toe dress shoes? Are you a clown? Black shirt and bright colored tie? Mother of god. ...

Obama and the Asian vote - cahoots
Why did 73% of Asians vote for Obama, the highest ever recorded? That's even higher than Hispanics. In 1992, Bill Clinton received only 31%. Why the shift? "Asian People Are Not Liberal, You Know, By Nature. They're Usually More Industrious And Hard-Working." - Bill O'Reilly ...

Even though infrastructure and services are limited, most sub 1000 towns are contributing 10 to 20 percent less than what they take in. Doesn't it seem like we're subsidizing small town folk?

The Woodlands =/= Houston - cahoots
Why do people tell you something like "Houston is great" and then proceed to tell you that they live in Sugarland or The Woodlands? Same thing with other big cities and the areas around them.

The Suburbs - cahoots
What prompted so much of America to develop into a suburban wasteland? Years ago, you had small towns with good BBQ and salt of the earth people. You had thriving cities full of opportunities.

Impossible to remove viruses - cahoots
Haven't had a virus in years but just got the "Windows 7 Antispyware 2012" virus that pretends to help you remove viruses. Took me an hour to get rid of it because it doesn't let you run .exe files.
