    Can't say that I blame them for trying to get out of Texas.

    After turning this into an anti-Texas thread (sorry about that), I will say that it is a really cool geographic fact.

    What happened to the "How the States Got Their Shapes" show? I loved it. I didn't even mind the reruns because I couldn't remember all the cool stuff they explained.
