Alaska's still bigger!

Know what would happen if we split Alaska in half? Texas would become the third largest state.

I mean, if Texas grows by about 500,000 every year for ten years, its growth rate will drop as time goes on, but the place is still growing at a good clip.
No, I know there is more than one way to measure growth of a state or city. I also know that the way that is used to determine the fastest growth rate is by using the percentage figures. You seem to be the one who is stuck on one method of measurement. I thought it was past your bedtime by the way.

I think the best solution to this madness is liberal usage of the ignore feature C-D has so kindly put in place for us so we don't have to read the rantings of lunatics. Welcome to my ignore list Kofi.

Oh wow. I understand putting trolls and things on ignore, and people who don't know how to type or post, but putting me on ignore because are respectfully disagree with you? I mean, it's not like I'm insulting you. But okay. Welcome to mine, too.

Can't take the heat son, so you put me on ignore!

(and it was a joke)

Um, no. You have learned that Kofi713 is obsessed over population growth stats, along with many other non-Texan posters on this forum. There are plenty of Texans who do not post in this forum at all and/or stay out of such conversations (like yours truly), as they are largely a pissing contest. What I've learned from C-D is how much some posters like to stereotype all Texans based on their dealings with a few.

Your comment is almost right...We don't think it is the best...We KNOW it is the Best! Don't Mess With Texas!! of course if you are thinking of moving to Austin Texas it is flat, it floods, it has flying cockroaches, we have more tornados in Texas than anywhere else, it is full of rednecks and bubbas, yes we all ride horses to school, our homes still have dirt floors. Move to Dallas, Houston or San Antonio stay of the Austin roads they are bad enough.

To someone who has never lived in Tx, my answer is no. But then to Tx natives, it's probably yes.
Again, all depends on who you ask. This poll could go on forever.

Once again I'd like to go on record and Say that this thread has been tainted by the fact that it started in a TEXAS forum and was moved to general US because of it's subject matter. That explains the disproportionate support for TX as the best state.

So i'm just curious Kofi, so according to those stats would you consider NYC the fastest growing city in America from 2000 - 2007 then?
