    shame on you lol. You just turned 18? Congratulations man! Its funny, I would have completely forgot to vote too but I mailed some packages earlier and saw the sign.

    On topic, i've been watching the news all day and not once has anyone mentioned Texas independence day. I've heard the Longhorns beat Oklahoma (big deal) in basketball but thats about it.

    That's our goal.

    But yeah, while our Independance was short lived, it made for a symbolic joining of the union.

    We also have What-A-Burger.

    BTW, did you know that some schools in other states actually teach Texas history?

    Amazingly enough, the Cowboy stereotype is still around, Which I am kind of proud of and kind of hate. Some Canadian kids actually asked me if I was a cowboy while my Family was vacationing at the Atlanantis resort in the Bahamas.

    Yeahhhh, that's highly highly debatable. Like Louisiana history, Texas has a rich history but best? Given that "best" is such a subjective word, I can think of several states that whose histories are much more interesting than Texas.

    Yeah, it's called American History.

    As proud of my state I am, I would hate to see it cecede. Especially now, it'd just be stupid.

    If you're going to use that sarcastic tone, why do you take the time to even reply?

    It is quite funny as Canadians sometimes are asked if we live in Igloo's.

    Apparently everyone is ignorant to the way that everyone else lives...:lol
