I have no idea what Texans have against normal neckties. I guess I should have been more clear - I live in Texas, have only been here for around 4 years now (born and raised in Michigan/New York), so I'm not quite aware of all of the idiosyncrasies of the state.
Well that's disappointing.
edit: I was looking forward to mocking you. But now... all I can do is call you a carpetbagger.

He was (as far as I know) our only souther member. I miss mocking the backward ways of his backyard-still-operating brethren. This saddens me deeply.
How could you possibly think he was the only southerner.
Yes, that is south enough.
Tell me, what do Texans have against normal neckties?
I live in Georgia, less south than Texas, but not by much.
My burden has been lifted. Thank you, thank you all!
Now, since you've all done me a kindness, I'm going to do you one in return. It's probably a peace of advice you've received often, and is probably cliched by now, but it's good advice. Good advice can never be repeated too often.
The advice is: move to the north. The racism (where it exists) here is much more subtle, the food AND the conversation are both better, and people tend to be less-- how do I put this nicely? -- crazy. The "bible belt" does not exist here. There are no (okay, very few) fundamentalist christians, and intellectuals tend to gravitate toward northern states. Also, as Supersize Me teaches us, moving to the north can benefit your health. The state with the fattest people is, you guessed it, Tejas (I always liked the Spanish spelling better). Losing weight (and acquiring dental care) is as easy as moving to, say, Maryland. Take a hint from our neighbors to the south (Mexico), and hop that fence to greener pastures.
Think about it, the further south you go in the Americas, the worse life gets. South America is almost as bad as Africa, and Mexico is almost as bad as South America. Canada has universal health care. Canada is better than the US (I'll gladly admit it. They're just so damn nice, I have to give them credit where it's due). Are you seeing a trend here? So take the hint! Freedom (and a set of dentures) await you in this glorious land, the North!
edit: BTW, I have a solution to your necktie-heat problem. Here in the north, it's cool enough that we don't have to wear ridiculous clothing ward off the ever-present heat. We also have a magical substance that you've probably only heard about. It's called snow, and it kicks ***. Sand is no substitute.

As much as I loved the north while I was living there, having to shovel/snowblow snow was really not that pleasant.
That, and slipping on patches of black ice.

Shoveling snow is a glorious activity! (and it beats going to school/work)
edit: The above was written before Jon posted.
It's "On behalf of" not "On regard of". Northern education has its advantages...
(BTW, don't get so pissed off; the war's over. What's a little good natured douchefulness between friends?)

I've been wanted to do this so long.
Northern education has it's advantages
You are an idiot. That translates into
Northern education has it is advantages
Stop harrassing me for the smallest things you little prick. Don't call us friends, we aren't.
EDIT: Nice edit you dick. And by the way admin, I honestly don't care anymore. You can ban me if you want, but that guy, whether sarcasticly or not just insulted everything I stand for. I want him to ***** bleed.
