Texas has lots of geography. Haven't you seen a map?

I've seen more than a map; I've explored a lot of it... but while I admit that there are beautiful evergreen forests in East TX, and fairly impressive scenic vistas in West TX, most of it is little better that the humid, tornado-and-hick-ridden shithole known as Oklahoma (Q: Why doesn't Texas fall off into the Gulf? A: 'Cause Oklahoma sucks!)... and speaking of the Gulf, spare me; it's IMHO and entirely unimpressive stretch of coastline until you get far enough east (FL) or south (Yucatan)...
