Texas has more natural disasters than CA, which is why homeowners insurance is more expensive there.

I'm from Dallas and I have spent several prolonged vacations in California and I must say California tops the list.

Um, aren't you Texan? We know you dislike it. But guess what, you're from there. Also, he didn't state anything that I did not know. I know Texas has it's problems with poverty and education and more. It is by no means a perfect state. But there IS no perfect state in the nation. They all have their cons and their pros.

what is your point exactly?
that We're prejudice because only a few people talk that way? But people here don't really care how other people talk...unless you're from the Northeast...and have a HARD core Jewish or Italian-American accent. The worst you get is maybe a look from some old dude who hates yankees... most people won't care even then and if they do they might just ask where you're from...
Sorry, I was just joking. I was making fun of your grammar. You said very little people talk like that.

You should have said very few people talk like that. Obviously you didn't get it.

I see...
Well, excuse me for my grammatical error...It sounds sarcastic...but I'm not...

That's probably one of the more nit picky grammatical rules, I will say to defend myself...People use incorrect grammar all the time.
For example a phrase like "the Introduction for the add was boring"
would be grammatically incorrect on the basis that the use of the verb 'for' is used incorrectly.
Grammar goes beyond Texas...

Texas does have boring planes...as mountains, and rivers, and swamps, and beaches, and canyons, and plateaus, and deserts, and forests, and escarpments...
And yes, anything is flammable if you raise it's temperature enough...but Texas is definitely not as 'flammable' as California... probably cause it actually rains where people live...well in Central and East Texas anyways...so only El Paso is like dry, and even then its not El Paso you hear about 'on fire' like SoCal.

go ahead and grammatically laugh at me again...

Why do your cities have to be so far from the interesting terrain?
