A few fun facts about Houston, Texas:

  • Houston is the fourth-largest city in America with a population of about 2.1 million people.
  • The air quality in Houston is so bad that they've created a way to track it in real time. So there's that.
  • According to Wikipedia, "Houston is a significant hub for trafficking of cocaine, marijuana, heroin, MDMA (also called "Molly", which is not to be confused with Molly Sullivan), and methamphetamine."
  • The city is the home and/or birthplace of a number of well-known figures, but few more important than Phylica Rashad (Claire Huxtable from The Cosby Show), Booker T. Huffman (Booker T - one-half of Harlem Heat), and Mark William Calaway (aka The Undertaker).
