Texas is the ONLY US State to have its own currency, and if you have any of the Bills, you can actively use it at any store and they cant stop you from doing so. Look it up, its the law, even though Texas isn't the Republic of Texas anymore, it still has the currencies it created and its still protected by the Texas State Constitution that you can very much use the currency to purchase goods from stores and stuff. Although if I had a Texas bill, I wouldn't waste it, they're very rare to come by. But its still very cool nonetheless.

I've known this fact for a few years now, but I never felt like sharing because people from other states would call me "arrogant" or something for bragging.

Caddo Lake is the largest natural lake in the South; it's also the largest cypress forest in the world.

There is a "Texas Embassy" in London, and at one time it really was an embassy. How many states have that?
