to do with burritos, beer, single malts, cigars, beards, essential oils, health related doodads.
It's a good place to look for something to listen to because I've cut of a lot of the fat, see.
And I'll cut you too if you look at me wrong, see. 
And if you like vinyl, I've found a few nice deals. I'm saving my pennies for a new record

I think WF is still HQ'ed here, that might be part of it.

Texas has room, but Austin does NOT. The infrastructure is hopelessly outdated: the water/sewer systems date to the 30's. Property values have skyrocketed, along with rents and property taxes (Texas has no income tax). People are literally being taxed out of their homes: property taxes do not consider your ability to pay. Small businesses are moving away in droves: their rents have quadrupled and more.Traffic is rated among the top (bottom) ten worst in the country.

Amazon has the ability to create its own town. There is plenty of land in Texas, and not so far out of Austin (or Dallas) either.

i can't think of anyone even close (see #metoo debacle)

As a dad who just went through Christmas, I've noticed that for electronic gadgetry (especially the Nintendo stuff my son wants), Walmart usually has equal or lower prices.  The majority of the sellers of that stuff on Amazon are independent privateers, much like on eBay.

Amazon reveals the 20 cities that could be the home of its next headquarters

"Getting from 238 to 20 was very tough – all the proposals showed tremendous enthusiasm and creativity," said Holly Sullivan, head of public policy for Amazon. "Through this process we learned about many new communities across North America that we will consider as locations for future infrastructure investment and job creation."

Here are all the potential candidates:
