I think Texas was number 2.

I do not want to tell you which state was number 1 it would just get everyone upset! They seem to be number 1 in everything.

I am not kidding!

I actually went overboard in my response. Not very cool. Sometimes the best thing to do is ignore something you do not agree with. Still I am not sure if it was a joke (especially when I saw his/her response) as more as a way to spread a common stereotype about New Yorkers. There are 19 million of us and we do not collectively enforce anything lol.

Why he/she posted that anyway on a thread that is supposed to be about why Texas is misunderstood is beyond me. I actually sympathize with Texas on this, although the problem I think is less Texas is misunderstood - as why is Texas so unknown.

The school system is not that great in this country and tv is almost pure entertainment (even much of the news media). Its not suprising that most people do not even know their own state let alone others.
God bless you LINative. You have got to be one of the most patient people on this thread. Any person would have blown up on me, but you were very easy going. But yeah I think New Yorkers and Texans can sympathise with each other about stereotypes.

No lol but Florida is actually a good guess. Apparently the states with more people have more horses (hint hint). Farmers are not the only ones with horses - people keep them for recreation.










Its California!
