There is another old saying that says everything is bigger in Texas. After being there for a week, I can say it definitely applies to a lot of things. For one, even though I did not think food serving sizes were that much larger, I think the actual plates are larger than what we have in Calgary, and therefore everything was scaled up without looking bigger. Secondly, roadways and overpasses are much more prominent in the cities like Houston or San Antonio. However, one of the largest things we saw was in Houston, which was the Saturn V rocket at the Space Center. When we first passed by during one of the tours, they had an outline of the rocket from the outside, and I thought, "There is no way that thing is actually that big".
