So did Texas. Both states also had alot of Czechs move there long before WWII. Texas is home to the oldest Polish settlement in the USA, Panna Maria.

Using your own site, USGS...Platte River is currently at 7,340 USGS Current Conditions for USGS 06805500 Platte River at Louisville, Nebr.

Brazos River is currently at 13,100 USGS Current Conditions for USGS 08108700 Brazos Rv at SH 21 nr Bryan, TX



The next time YOU post, please state some facts that are accurate and not "what you think of feel".
Everything I posted was a fact and I backed them up with resources.

I see you posted the map with no resource info. What the map does show is how many fortune 500 companies are just in Omaha not the entire state. The numbers I quoted were in the USA today newspaper about 3 weeks ago.

The Discharge rate that you posted (per Wikipedia) is the maximum that the river can put out at the termination of the river whether it's the gulf of Mexico or just another river. The discharge means nothing to the people up stream that depend on the river for irrigation. That's why I posted real continuous flow at a point upstream that were current to this day and time. Just to make it simpler, it means that if you walk out on a bridge and look down at the river (at those locations I posted) the numbers I reported is what you will see. The maximum discharge rate is a worthless number that may only be valid during floods or rainy seasons and does not represent any value to this thread.

I'm not sure what the agriculture info you posted is supposed to represent since you didn't explain your point so I can't comment.

The way I see it you keep listing info to exaggerate your point and then you don't put the effort into the post to give real time information. This thread is about real time comparisons between Nebraska and Texas.

thats because the 5 fortune 500 companies Nebraska has are all in Omaha. Texas has 54, sorry if this is too difficult for you......Texas is No. 2 for Fortune 500 companies, topping California | Dallas Morning News

https://www.geolounge.com/fortune-50...tate-for-2015/

the agriculture info I posted, was to confirm that my point that TX contributes much more to the nation than Nebraska, to which you said "what exactly does TX contribute?" or somethin along those lines...Again, sorry this is so difficult for you.....

bla bla bla about the river stuff, now your just picking and choosing to salvage your idiotic claim that "Texas Rivers are as big as Nebraska creeks" I proved you wrong on that with plenty of info, including the USGS that you yourself used.....

If you enjoy trees, outdoor activities, more than two seasons, Nebraska is a much better fit.

I pick Nebraska alone so I don't have to deal with living in a state that seems to embarrass the US on a rather frequent basis.
