I've lived in Texas all my life, so I actually know this stuff.

Texas is pretty cool, things are generally bigger here, but since when is that better or worse? We are not all racist. In fact, most of us are some of the most tolerant people you'll meet (i.e. we are not all bible belters). That's just the super small towns where people aren't extremely educated. We are usually fairly friendly, unless someone else is rude first, and we will ALWAYS stand up for, and defend our own. We have lots of pride in our state, which sometimes makes other people mad, and/or pisses them off a bit.

Oh, and we don't ride horses to school or wear cowboy hats all over the place either. Maybe one in a thousand people actually wear boots, unless you're in rural texas, which is a completely different story.

We may be a bit obese, but hey, we like fried food. Lots of people do, we're just a little more enthusiastic about it here!
Texas is simply texas. If you don't live here, you don't know. Don't knock something until you've tried it! (or been there, in this case!)

Texas can be divided into two sections, the cities and the rural areas.

THE CITIES:
In cities like Dallas and Houston, minorities far outnumber white people. The only people wearing cowboy hats are people from other states, and they generally don't go to the cities (for good reason). There is a Starbucks on every block, and during lunch hour, the line will extend out the door. Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio can be very ghetto, in fact. Dallas has the highest murder rate of any city over 1,000,000, and Houston isn't far behind. When on the subway in Dallas, confused tourists will be asking you for directions, while behind you a homeless man will be urinating on the platform, and the people next to you will be speaking spanish. It is indeed a very urban experience (as is everything in Dallas and Houston). People are NOT friendly in the city of Dallas, however, in Houston, people are much more hospitable. Dallasites tend to be very arrogant. 95% of the people in the cities do not have any detectable southern accent, and look down on the people who do.

RURAL AREAS:
Beyond the cities and their suburbs, however, lies a completely different Texas. "The Country" is where people in the cities go for recreation (such as camping or boating) and thats about it. People are far less educated than they are in the cities, and have heavy southern accents. Fireworks stands will be on every street, instead of Starbucks, and most people will have a gun. The people here are for the most part seeking a humble existance, and are very kind and hospitable people. People in the cities tend to view these people as uneducated hicks, rightly or wrongly.

That pretty much sums up Texas.

Oh Yeah, Austin is really Berkeley, California reincarnated in Texas.
Californian: You have to be kidding me, you're from Texas? I thought it was only steers and queers?

Texas: ...sigh... and you call us ignorant?

I'm from Texas. It's just another state in the U.S. I'm not racist, I've never worn a cowboy hat or boots, I've never ridden a horse or owned livestock. I don't have a truck. I've never said "Don't mess with Texas" or "Everythings bigger in Texas". I'm not an idiot, my I.Q. Is 125. I don't have sex with relatives. I don't own a flag. I've never been to a rodeo. I'm not a religious person, and I hate country music. There are stereotypical Texans here but not everyone is one of them. And out of all of the definitions for Texas (positive or otherwise) mine has better grammar. (And I am currently 16 years old. Male.)

The closest thing to heaven on earth!
A travelling salesman was in California and he saw a golden payphone. The sign below the phone said, "Direct Line to Heaven: $30,000." The salesman travelled all over the country and wherever he went, he saw the same type of phone with the same type of sign under it. "Direct Line to Heaven: $30,000." When he went to Texas, however, he saw the same type of phone and the sign under it said, "Direct Line to Heaven: 25 Cents." He commented on this to one of the locals. "Everywhere I go in this country, I see this type of phone and the sign under it says, 'Direct Line to Heaven: $30,000.' But when I see this same phone in Texas, it says, 'Direct Line to Heaven: 25 Cents.' Why do you suppose that is?" The man answered, "That's easy. From here, it's a local call."
