    There are many astronauts in Texas. This is from Wikipedia:

    Texas
    In 1997 the Texas legislature passed a bill allowing residents to cast absentee ballots from space, because of the presence of the NASA Johnson Space Center and the astronauts that live in the Houston metropolitan area.

    Oh ya, I remember that story about the girlfriend who travelled from Texas to Florida. Drove herself, had extra gas cans, wore diapers so she wouldn't be seen, and tried to kill his new girlfriend with a gun!
    Now it makes sense how they knew about each other!

    I know from Collins' "Carrying the Fire" that the astronauts and their families lived around Houston at that time as well.

    A Chinese couple refused to move despite plans for the road, so the motorway was built around their house.

    My mind went mad for a second there... Lol

    José Mujica, the President of Uruguay, donates 90% of his $12000 (£7500) salary to charity. He is the poorest President of the world and does not avail special services. Thats what a president should be.

    Nope not $1. Herbert Hoover and George Washington, refused to take the salary, but on being told it would lead to bad chain reactions, took it and then finally donated it to charity, but I'm talking about presidents who are currently alive.
