    If you only know the Colorado Rocky Mountains then yes. I now call the Colorado Rockies cute.

    If you've never been to Glacier National Park there's nothing that can beat that insane beauty. It extends into Canada probably looking similarly to what I experienced and what you posted.

    This is another reason the whole SEC move sucks.

    Are those really the people we want to be identified with...???

    People in Houston who hate the Dallas Cowboys:

    WTF is wrong with you?!?!?

    This isn't UT vs A&M. People across this State should like them both.

    Sure, but California is "West Coast" which to me is distinct from "West".

    It wasn't called the South Conference OR the West Conference.
    It was called the Southwest Conference for a reason.

    Rock stars who had 13 and 14 year old groupie girlfriends when they were grown men are still common predators, despite their musical skills.

    English food is actually pretty good.

    Prime rib
    Sunday roast
    Yorkshire pudding
    Shepherds pie
    Chicken pot pies
    Other non organ meat pies
    Fish and chips
    Filet of Dover Sole
    English Breakfasts
    And then there’s the desserts
    And the curries East of downtown London and South of the river are among the best in the World.

    Skip the jellied eels and mushy peas…

    The Shawshank Redemption was just a good film like hundreds of others, but nothing special about it

    Texas--> pay Louisiana $15 billion and endow a bunch of scholarships to every college in Louisiana, in exchange for...

    An allowance of X acre feet per year to be pumped from the Mississippi River downstream of where it's East bank exits the State of Mississippi (that way we only have to deal with one state, not Miss and Ark as well).

    Build California style massive water pipelines and pumps to fill up lakes in East Texas, then build pipelines and pumps to fill up Central and North Texas lakes. Plenty of maintenance, and de-silting, and other civil engineering work will obviously be required. State can charge localities and farmers for the water. Once built, it will more or less pay for itself.

    Texas' long term water problem solved.

    I've never had Dickey's, but I believe Bill Miller's has earned a class by itself.

    I long time ago, I suggested that Miller's have their own "special" - fat & grease sandwich.

    Republicans are blue. Democrats are red.

    Media's been getting it wrong for 20 years now and it's always amazed me how we just accepted it the way everyone has it now, 1984-style "it's always been this way". Granted, over something trivial, but it goes to illustrate how that sort of thing can actually happen.

    We should somehow talk Mexico into selling us Cabo and up to about 75 miles to the North.

    We don't want Tijuana.

    Not all films are redemption films. A good redemption film is special.

    East Texas has plenty of water already, probably just needs a top off every once in a while from Louisiana.

    This can actually be taken further to solve three problems in one initiative:

    (1) NOLA difficult to rebuild because it's below sea level
    (2) Illegal immigrants crossing the Rio Grande
    (3) Excess alligators in the Everglades


    (1) Dredge the Rio Grande
    (2) Take soil from dredging and use it to raise NOLA
    (3) Relocate excess Everglades alligators to the Rio Grande

    Volia! All three problems solved. :)

    On behalf of the Texas Gator Population, Anahuac Division, I protest the importation of a bunch of fur-in-ners to do their job.

    I suppose you could call the imported Florida gators an "Augmentation Force."
