Speaking of Texans, one of them just discovered the "fuhrst pohst" dumbass filter.

"Susie Moreland said her grandson, Justin Goetz, never intended to hurt Jaquie Creazzo, one of Colorado's best known good Samaritans" I live here and never heard of the biatch

I bet you when the Cowboys said Ryan Leaf was going to be their starting QB it just was too much for this guy to handle and he snapped

speaking of Texans - we're bigger, have more money, have more energy, and have more technology than just about anybody else in the US.

Wrong tag, that definatley should have had a "weird" tag.

guns don't kill people, guns kill diabetic, pill-popping, fire-starting, manic-depressive, obsessive, suicidal, psycho, ex-boyfriends.

I knew a guy who pulled a very similar stunt, only for him it didn't turn out quite as well as this. Actually the last thing that ran through his mind was buckshot from a 12 guage. I guess there is no good time to be creepy-stalking kamikazee-attacking your ex's.
 
2001-11-13 09:44:38 AM  
Sounds like someone has a small pee pee!

Texas: "What do you mean we're just queers and steers?"
"We don't have any horns on our heads!"
 
2001-11-13 09:46:08 AM  
DirkValentine: and like every other Texan I know, are so willing to give you their resume verbally and boast about what their great state has...which basically boils down to cheerleader killing moms, lotsa oil and livestock, jugbands (only in fancy towns) and assorted women with large hair.

This is one cool grandma. Paralyzed when trying save a raped woman, then capping some nutcase with a shotgun.

Sounds like cali, minus energy.

If you don't love me I'm gonna kill myself!! But first I'm gonna torch your car just to show you how much I love YOU!!

I think FARK needs a white trash tag.
 
2001-11-13 09:55:55 AM  
Methinks, when you have a small peepee everything else
you have or do has to be bigger than the next guys.
Texas' version of keeping up with the Joneses!

Rabbito

Yeah, your right. That's all we have. I thought you were decent, but just like every other person from Colorado that I know are willing to slam a Texan at the drop of a hat. You have Columbine, a bunch of smelly "wish I was around for the Dead" dumbass', ugly hairy women, and snotty attitudes with a stupid accent. Oh yeah, and why don't you go check your history books so you can find out your living in North Texas. Duh.

don't even try to slam the women of Texas b/c it's pretty obvious you haven't spent much time here. Texas women are amazing. And don't try to tell me I don't know what I'm talking about b/c I have lived in CO as well. Beautiful place, dumbass people.

And don't forget about that little business here called NASA. Not just oil and livestock. If you think so your a fool.

Rabbito:I'm hoping that you're basing your knowledge of Texas on actual, personal expirence rather than just rehashing the same tired jokes and sterotypes. I am from Texas and I like living here, but I don't think it constitutes bragging rights and so I've never verbally boasted about what my great state has. On the other hand, I don't think that I, nor anyone else should be chastised for where we live. As far as the "loonies" that live in our state, as far as I'm concerened, that can be explained by exploring your common sense more people = a greater chance someone will do something stupid
 
2001-11-13 10:00:24 AM  
Whoa, for a second I thought there was a strange limb burning incident...

"Distraught man torches ex-girlfriends car and arms"
 
2001-11-13 10:01:21 AM  
DirkValentine: ROFL!!! I am thinking you are the one who spoke for the entire state, thus backing my thoughts. BTW, congrats on your appointment as a Texas Rep!!! And FYI, I have been there and it is not necessarily the state that is bad, I will take that back, it is the dumbass people like you that waste it's air.

2001-11-13 10:02:58 AM  
I wuz in Texas once - for about 5 years one day. If this speed limit was higher I coulda gotten outta there quicker
 
2001-11-13 10:05:33 AM  
Yeah, I lived in Texas once too. It was hot and flat. The heat does strange things to people I guess.
 
2001-11-13 10:06:27 AM  
Ethanoic: if you read Dirk Valentines eloquence above, you will see what I am talking about. I truly have nothing against Texas and yes I understand that it holds many great things and all that, you are right, where we live means nothing. Unfortunately for folks like you, who seem to be normal upstanding US Farkers, people like Dirk making comments like: "speaking of Texans - we're bigger, have more money, have more energy, and have more technology than just about anybody else in the US." kinda feed that stereotypical fire dontcha think?

cronic: excellent steve martin reference.
the grandma definitely rocks hard!
AYBABTU!
 
2001-11-13 10:09:40 AM  
not bragging, just stating facts.
 
2001-11-13 10:20:19 AM  
I think everyone here knows the best state with the most bragging rights is most definately New Hampshire. We've got trees, roads AND electricity! And some places have indoor plumbing! And cows!
BTW, did anyone catch the number of the guy shot in the leg. I think someone is now single.... I'm going to snatch him up!
 
2001-11-13 10:22:34 AM  
I've lived in Texas my entire life. It's a good place, in my opinion. Sure, we have crazies, but you can find that sort anywhere. Like Ethanoic said, more people = a greater chance someone will do something stupid...
And quit arguing about how hideous Texas is. Sure, it's pretty damn hot and the speed limit isn't too high, but one can deal with this. Air conditioners are welcome around here, and you can ignore the speed limit if you're careful...

and I definitely have not met any big-haired women...
lucky, I guess...
I've heard word of them, seen a few on TV, but most of the girls I know are quite beautiful and have very pretty, normal-looking hair... *winks to audience*

Creazzo -- who is paralyzed from the chest down after being shot in 1994 while trying to rescue a woman who had been abducted and raped -- fired back.

Don't mess wit granny.

blah blah stereotype blah blah

I was born in texas, and being a double military brat (two retired officers for parents) I've lived all over the US:

Hawaii,
Texas (again, later after being born there)
Kansas
Colorado
Maryland
Pennsylvania
North Carolina

So far every place I've lived has had it's 'crazies' and none has been superior to another, just different. I do have to say, though, that the taxation is going berserk here in NC, catching up to DC metro MD...
Out of all of them, i'd like to move back to rural PA, or to rural Texas, but my wife won't move to Texas, since it's so far from her family.

It's a beautiful country, the whole US, filled with a wide range of people from nutty to nuttier.
 
2001-11-13 10:31:58 AM  
I lived in Houston for a year, and I noticed some things about Texas.

1. More titty-bars per square inch than any other state I've been in (with the possible exception of Las Vegas, but that's not an entire state).
2. Their environmental bumper stickers have to sound "in your face" or no one would display them ("Don't Mess With Texas" is their way of saying "Don't Litter").
3. Texas Stores: It seems that by law, every mall, shopping center, or quickie mart has to have floor space (or an entire store) dedicated to Texas memoribilia and/or souvenirs. The scary thing is that it's the RESIDENTS who are buying them, not the tourists.
4. The drivers treat rain like the rest of the country treats snow. Traffic crawls when it's damp.
5. Until I moved out of Houston, I thought 2 traffic fatalities a morning were normal.
6. Everything sold has to mention texas. Ford has a truck with a "texas package," beer companies make special "texas" versions of their commercials, etc.
7. Everyone lets you know if they think "you ain't from around here, is ya?"
 
2001-11-13 10:47:14 AM  
Henchman:
Unfortunately, that sounds about right for some of the nasty quirks of Texas.
Except for the last. Maybe I've been spoiled by being around rather tolerant people, but "you ain't from around here" has never been brought up in my presence. Sure, someone may ask if another is of a different state of origin, but it isn't done frequently or in any particularly strange or rude way...
Otherwise, you're right on target.
But I try to avoid and ignore the Texas souvenir places whenever possible, and I will admit that the larger cities in the state have horrible problems with lunatic drivers, hence the fear of rain and number of fatal crashes...
 
2001-11-13 11:08:41 AM  
Let's not forget that Texas has this...

My guess is the bad guy was originally a Yankee who came down during the carpetbagger 1980's.
"What is the scariest thing in the world? A Yankee with a U-haul!"
If I heard one more time "You can't get Rolling Rock here." "The buffalo wings are better up north." or "Texas sucks" I was going to throw up.
No one carries your ass down to Texas in chains and drops you off with no cash so if you don't like please, go back "home".
Sure Texas has some 'necks. However, have you been to some of the parts of the North East where you are a stranger "living in the old Johnson's place" for 2 generations? How about near Slippery Rock or Oil City, PA where they wonder where your "Dallas" accent is?
Please people, give me a break. NYC was a friendlier place.
 
2001-11-13 11:53:58 AM

california has a bigger economy than most countries in the world, so eat THAT texas and colorado.
 
2001-11-13 12:13:52 PM  
What I find hilarious about this whole thread is how easy it is to troll Texans. All you have to post is "Texas sucks" and you get some crazy flaming "kicker" rambling on in a three paragraph response covering all of the combined assests of Texas and Texans.

Someone say Minnesota sucks. Come on, I dare ya....
 
2001-11-13 12:15:35 PM  
Minnesota sucks. (sigh)
 
2001-11-13 12:22:33 PM  
Thanks Xart
 
2001-11-13 12:27:18 PM  
Hrmmm..I used to know a Dirk Valentine once when I was in the Navy. He was in the Air Force and from Texas, but he didn't like boobies very much...

Anyhow, I agree with Potemkin, I was born in Dallas (Presby baby), lived there most of my life. No matter where I go, people say "You don't sound like you're from Texas"...

Sure we get uppity about our state, but c'mon, everyone expects it...

And personally, I'm a big fan of the joke about the Texan, Californian and Coloradan (?) drinking in the bar. I'm sure Rabbito probably knows it....
