Exactly! Which is why it makes it that much more annoying when people keep saying that their state is the best as if it were fact.

No Country For Old Men. Anyone ever seen that movie? it takes place in Texas and I'm pretty sure that, while they aren't mountains, there were a lot of ups and downs in the terrain.

I grew up in Texas and left as soon as I could. I go back only because I have to visit family. I would not wish Texas on my worst enemy.

Why do people keep making comments like this? Let people live where they want to live. You don't have to go out insulting the place. That's just stupid.

Once again, Texas haters..... you just have to live with them and bare it. Trust me, my ex was from Cali, and I had to here it from her all the time, now you can see why she's my EX...

Kiddin' aside, Texas and California are like Randy Moss and T.O., two big egos, too big for one place.

YES or NO?
Kofi, I'm just curious if you were ever going to answer this question or just ignore it..... It seems you don't want to answer it b/c it you would have to admit NYC was the fastest growing city by your definition but only seem to want to use that definition when it applies to TX cities.... like I already said, you can't just spin things in your favor.

Ouch harsh. I'm from CA and my girlfriend is from TX. I make fun of her all the time. I hope she doesn't take your solution.

I voted no. But I've been in TX (Austin and Houston) for many years and don't plan to move anytime soon. There are lots of advantages. But in order for me to figure out what the "best state" was, I'd have to sit down, do a really in-depth analysis of them all, and then go experience all of them first-hand. Not going to happen... so I'm not going to pick a best state.

....No.... just joking.
We had to break up anyway because I was a grade ahead of her and it was my senior year and I was going to be away for awhile, and I just couldn't do the long distance thing.... y'know.

But Texas and California needs to start coming together. We could be an unstoppable force.
