    Tambakis, I think you've found what you're looking for.

    Fort Worth, Tambakis' city, is in North Texas... it's quite a drive all the way to South Texas from here.

    This is what really bothers me about texas people.
    First,
    It's Fort worth. Second, not everybody in america knows all about the geography of Texas, nor does anybody else care. Oh yea, and thanks for George Bush. Please, come november, take him back. We don't want him anymore.
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    ... Sorry, that was a typo. It's been corrected. I'm fully aware of the spelling of Fort Worth... seeing as it is Dallas' sister city...

    Obviously, there are a great number of people who don't know the geography of this state. That's why I corrected Pravit. Do you see something wrong with this action? In addition to this, let is be said that I personally despise Texas, and plan to leave as soon as possible. So don't lecture me as if I am the same as everyone else here. I also advise you not to make generalizations about Texas--not everyone here is a George Bush. In Dallas, for example, there is almost an entirely different culture (and even accent) than the rest of Texas. Well, this is true for most of our big cities. The people here are extremely diverse, so trash all those preconceived notions you have about Texas from cowboy films and bad-apple presidents and such...

    Alas, you are right indeed. What a shame! I've actually been in Dallas once(they have a very fine Chinese barbecue there, have you visited it?). I suppose I wasn't aware how far north it really was. No problems with a bit of friendly correction!

    ... Mm, don't know of any Chinese barbecues; however, there are a number of Mongolian BBQ restaurants around here... one of them in particular is a chain, though I'm not certain as to how large of one. Genghis Grill.

    Enh, that sounds terrible, catchy name though. I'm referring to "First Chinese Barbecue." You can find it in that Chinese plaza area of Dallas.

    ... Mm, Genghis Grill isn't particularly... good, yes. I personally never go there--only once.

    There are innumerable locations in Dallas that fit the description of "Chinese plaza area."

    I am not making fun of texas because of cowboys. How retarded would that be ? That's like making fun of russia for being ruled by tsars. Dude you're living in the past. Im making fun of texas because everybody there thinks they are god's arm or something. The reason i love king of the hill is because it just makes fun of people from Texas written from a person living not in Texas's point of veiw. It doesn't help that everybody i have ever met from texas has been full of more hot air than the Hindenburg. It's just anoying.

    Think as you will. Personally, I don't care. In all likelihood we probably share many common views on the subject. The last thing I want to do is to be put in a position to defend Texas, of which I am known to frequently deprecate.

    I ask you, however, as amicably as possible, not to lump all who live in Texas into one generalized category. This is certainly not the place, nor the people, to do that to.

    Thank you, and good will:

    that is a great use of words stannslav (i cant get the thing to were i can type in russian) but anyways i live in the states and i feel (as much as i dont want to) a certain need to defend them. Texas realy isnt all THAT bad. exept for Bush comming from there(Kerry should have won). there are many other things about Texas that isnt advertised so until you've actually seen ALL the sides of Texas id say you don't have much room to talk.

    Wow, I like how I just now saw this thread. First-just as there is such a thing as "russian pride" it's pretty much true with Texas as well. Most Texans do take pride in their state. I'm sorry alot of people don't like to go around bashing it (with the exception of Stan over there...but he's from Dallas and we won't get into that one) There are all kinds. My neighbor could care less about Texas, another neighbor down the street would load up his shotgun if he heard you trashing her. As for me, I think it's hilarious and poke fun at the extreme generalization most make. (If you'll remember when I had the picture of President bush in his cowboy hat as my avatar and god knows what as my sig) Yes...that was a joke.

    This has been bouncing around in emails for the past few months-
    If Kerry wins, consider moving to
    Texas.......


    Please note that Texas is the only state with a
    legal right to secede from
    the Union. (Reference the Texas-American
    Annexation Treaty of 1848.)
    ...................................
    We Texans love y'all, but we'll have to take
    action if Kerry wins over Bush.
    We'll miss you too. Texas has given all those
    complainers plenty of time to
    get used to the results of the last election.
    After seeing the whiners along
    the campaign route, the folks from Texas are
    considering taking matters into
    their own hands.

    Here is what will happen:

    #1: If John Kerry becomes President of the
    United States, Texas will
    immediately secede from the Union.

    #2: George W. Bush will become the President of
    the Republic of Texas.

    So what does Texas have to do to survive as a
    Republic?

    1. NASA is just south of Houston, Texas. We
    will control the space industry.
    2. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the
    United States.
    3. Defense Industry--we have over 65% of it.
    The term "Don't mess with
    Texas," will take on a whole new meaning.
    4. Oil - we can supply all the oil that the
    Republic of Texas will need for
    the next 300 years. Yankee states? Sorry about
    that.
    5. Natural Gas - again we have all we need and
    it's too bad about those
    northern states. John Kerry will figure out a
    way to keep them warm...
    6. Computer Industry - we currently lead the
    nation in producing computer
    chips and communications--small places like Texas
    Instruments, Dell Computer,
    EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor, Motorola,
    Intel, AMD, Atmel, Applied
    Materials, Ball Semiconductor, Dallas
    Semiconductor, Delphi, Nortel, Alcatel, etc,
    etc. The list goes on and on.
    7. Medical Care - We have the largest research
    centers for cancer research,
    the best burn centers and the top trauma units in
    the world, as well as other
    large health centers. Dallas has some of the best
    hospitals in the United
    States.
    8. We have enough colleges to keep us going:
    University of Texas, Texas A&M,
    Texas Tech, Rice, SMU, University of Houston,
    Baylor, UNT (University of
    North Texas), Texas Women's University, etc. Ivy
    grows better in the South anyway
    9. We have a ready supply of workers. We could
    just open the border when we
    need some more.
    10. We have essential control of the paper
    industry, plastics, insurance, etc.
    11. In case of a foreign invasion, we have the
    Texas National Guard and the
    Texas Air National Guard. We don't have an Army,
    but since everybody down here
    has at least six rifles and a pile of ammo, we can
    raise an Army in 24 hours
    if we need one. If the situation really gets bad,
    we can always call the
    Department of Public Safety and ask them to send
    over Chuck Norris and a couple of
    Texas Rangers.
    12. We are totally self-sufficient in beef,
    poultry, hogs, and several types
    of grain, fruit and vegetables, and let's not
    forget seafood from the Gulf.
    Also, everybody down here knows how to cook them
    so that they taste good.
    Don't need any food.
    This just names a few of the items that will keep
    the Republic of Texas in
    good shape. There isn't a thing out there that we
    need and don't have.

    Now to the rest of the United States under
    President Kerry:
    Since you won't have the refineries to get gas for
    your cars, only President
    Kerry will be able to drive around in his big 9
    mpg SUV. The rest of the
    United States will have to walk or ride bikes.

    You won't have any TV as the Space Center in
    Houston will cut off satellite
    communications.
    You won't have any natural gas to heat your homes,
    but since Mr. Kerry has
    predicted global warming, you will not need the
    gas.

    Signed, The People of Texas

    P.S. This is not a threatening letter - just a
    note to give you something to
    think about...BEFORE YOU VOTE THIS NOVEMBER.
    SLEEP WELL TONIGHT
    This too is called a JOKE.
    Dog, I'm sorry, there is obviously such a thing as british humour (which many Americans don't understand) and Texans humor...I guess more don't understand.
