When darkness falls in southwest Oklahoma, Night Man reigns supreme. Wrought of terror and driven by objective justice, Night Man has the wicked in his face like the wind, and leaves corpses in his wake. None are spared.

There's pretty much nothing but farmland down there. Some of the worst tornadoes have ran amok in it because it's a huge section of Tornado Alley and you'll often see it on "World's blankiest blank" shows. It probably shouldn't ever be developed until we can build missiles to kill tornadoes.

No, the only reason that Texas doesn't fall into the Gulf is because Oklahoma sucks.

Having lived in both (and still having family in OK) I whole-heartedly agree with your statement. I wouldn't even compare it to Dallas; more like a slutty Ft. Worth.

Personally I think Texas is better than a good number of states but I was referring to what I felt was actual Okie superiority over Texas (which is strange to me). Them being the worst state ever they have no reason to say they are better than Texas or Kansas. It is no accomplishment to be better than Oklahoma but as a Texan is is my duty to rip on that horrible state as often as possible.

You looking for the middle of nowhere? The Oklahoma panhandle. Oh my god. It's so empty no one wanted it. An area bigger that Connecticut, with less than 30,000 people.

And, in Beaver county, on highway 412, there's a sign that says "Beaver Compression Station." If I am ever unfortunate enough to drive through there again, I'll get a pic.

Giggety.

The problem with Texas is the Texans. I've lived in Oklahoma all 30 years of my existence. I hate the red state mentality. But Oklahoma City has made great strides the past decade or so. And the one thing the state really has going for it is the people. As long as you don't talk politics, people tend to be very friendly. They'll actually let you in during busy traffic.

I don't hate the state of Texas. It has some wonderful aspects. The attitude of most Texans is not one of those wonderful aspects. Most Texans have this ego about their state that is laughable. It's like the whole state is over-compensating for a small weiner. Austin and San Antonio are great places. Enjoy them and quit bragging about the size of your... state. It just makes you look more inadequate.

You know why Oklahoma license plates say (or used to) "Oklahoma is OK"? Because they can't spell "mediocre".

Sure Texans have massive pride in their state (to a point that it annoys people) but to claim most Texans aren't nice is laughable. Texans and southerners (and midwesterners) in general are very nice and helpful. Compared to the west coast Texans are incredibly nice. Also, Oklahoma would have pride if their state didn't suck so hard (had to say it, ha).

I'm also not bragging about Texas at all, I'm just ripping on Oklahoma because if you knew a damn thing about Texas or Oklahoma you'd know we constantly insult each other.

I don't get state-to-state rivalry. Oregon hates us, but we don't reciprocate. Because, it's Oregon.

My husband is a native North Texan. He claims that birds fly upside down over Oklahoma, because there is nothing worth shiatting on there. But I love Tulsa, so I guess they should at least hold it until they get there.

Well it isn't like a hatred is involved with the rivalry. Think of it like the USA vs Canada. We are pretty much similar and that is almost why we insult each other. It's all in fun and when it comes down to it when I meet an Oklahoman in California I feel an automatic connection just based on being from a similar area. The Sooners can suck it though.
