Yeah, it's real...ol Mr. Hogg, Boss of the "missing Texans" division of the State Dept. doesn't beat around the bush much.

I LOLed when I read this:

1. "Pending acquisition of this state or territory by the Armed Forces of the Unites States."

Texas likes to think they're the biggest state.

If Alaska were divided in half, Texas would be the 3rd largest state in the union.

Legal-ish.
Possession is illegal, use is legal. Just another example of Canada's ability to compromise.

My only problem with Canadians is that they wont turn right at a red light. Really sucks when you get stuck behind one.

I dont like just about everything about texans.

I love texans. They are truly old school americans.

1. "Pending acquisition of this state or territory by the Armed Forces of the Unites States."

Awesome. One day we will take over Canadia

Sorry. I'm very irritated by groups of people that have tons of pride just for the sake of having tons of pride with not much to be proud of =P

GTFO! We have 105 degree days with 100% humidity for about 4 months straight. That's just one example of our paradise buddy. Did I just blow your mind?!

Seriously though, we have TWS, MSR-C, MSR-H, ECR, Harris Hill, TMS, Grand Motorsport Speedway, an F1 Track coming, and we don't have a "Track Season" as they are open year round. Oh yeah, and we have the River Walk, so suck it.

LOL...when you put it that way.



My pride for my state isn't just for it's own sake...and I don't stock up on Texas paraphenalia or anything.

I just like the people, the diversity of landscapes, the fact that we are enough cultures with a land big enough I could never have to leave this place my whole life. It really is different down here when you've grown up here.

I have a feeling I'd be just as proud as a nice place like Washington though. My sister went up there for Art School, and the scenery pics DID blow my mind. NW is on my list of rides.

For serious though, the PNW IS THE ****. You need to take a drive out here and come along with the locals to either carbonado or on the Peninsula drive. No bullshit, the greatest roads I've ever seen. Ever.

Only thing that really sucks about Texas is that Dallas is in it. I know people from there that are cool, but there is a general distain of people from Houston toward Dallas people and its reciprocated.

If I was in a bar in Washington though and they were picking on a Dallas guy, you bet your *** I would stand up for him though, becasue he is from Texas. That's my right, not theirs. Plus if we were in Washington, it would just be a bunch of hippies in the bar, so it wouldn't be too bad of a fight.
