There have been quite a few 'independent nations' created in Australia over the years. Probably the longest-lasting is a sheep-and-wheat station in Western Australia, it has a prince and everything! And, ironically enough, it's probably larger than numerous other internationally-recognised nations put together *lol*

Y'all can say what you want about Texas, but we Hawaiians have the only bona fide US royalty, and the only royal palace on US soil!

It's just that everyone else is soooooo short.

Unfortunately, I am a short Texan. That should not be allowed. I should be made taller so I won't embarass the rest of the state.

Me, too. I think the Texan in my jeans genes ended with my Dad (6' 2") and brother (6' 4"). Maybe I was adopted - from Oklahoma.

They just don't make dogs like they used to . . .


Maybe if you walk up on your hind legs you'll look taller.

I get bemused at threads like this. You know, nobody complains when a French citizen wishes to live their life by their customs, or that a Dane has different customs than a Spainard, or even that a Californian had different views than a Maine citizen. But let a Texan be unabashedly Texan, following Texas customs, and half the US is jumping down our throat, bashing us for being uncouth and maybe being the second coming of the Anti-Christ. I don't understand their heartburn.

We're only that way 'cause you-all so unabashedly despise the rest of us!

Anyway, I don't know why anyone would need to understand a Texan... as long as they know how to duck and cover...

All you need to know about Texas (and maybe Texans?) is contained in the Austin Lounge Lizards song Stupid Texas Song. Complete lyrics and a 40-second clip at the URL.

Don't blame me for the song -- they're the Texans, not me! Just be aware that the Lounge Lizards' repertoire lacks any claim to seriousness. Humor, satire, etc... sure. Seriousness -- not a chance!

I feel like I can understand Texans very well, but every once in a while they might have to repeat something for me.

We only despise people who tell us to sit down and shut up...or use sneaky ways to rob us.

Blame you? --- Thank you, thank you, thank you! Saw the lyrics and bought the CD. The perfect anthem for 21st century Texas! Can't wait to put it in my listening rotation.....

The Republic of Molossia is "a sovereign, independent nation-state, located in and completely surrounded by the United States, making it an enclave nation", apparently.
