REWahoo is not going to like this post one bit. He's usually trying to discourage people from going to Texas. Now we know why.

Yes, please don't look at those photos. The state of Texas is really like Kansas and Nebraska.

Thanks for the link. I had no idea that Austin had buildings that big. I have no desire to move to Texas, but it's fun when I pass through .

This thread demonstrates the amazing capabilities of photo editing software. It also showcases the finely honed bulls*****ing skills of several forum participants.

Armadillos have furry/bristly bellies? I never knew that.
