Can confirm, Texans in general are not the best people in the world towards anyone who isn't basically exactly like them. Loved here 99% of my life, and I was a hell of a lot happier in other places.

I think Brenden's mom is right. There does seem to be something special about you Texans. :3

Depends on if you're the same skin color, belief, sexuality, presidential affiliation, etc. Southerners have this weird thing where they have solidarity stemming back to losing the civil war or something but a lot are hateful trash deep down. I'm not trying to be negative, but as a Texan I've seen enough of Texas and Texans and can't wait to get the fuck out. I'd rather people have a slightly less friendly demeanor and not wish for the death/removal of 90% of the population that don't fit their idea of an acceptable human being.

I guess I've just got lucky with them so far. :P

Brenden's mom shares most of that stuff I guess, though she is a pagan/Wiccan/witch from Slovakia living in Arizona.

That the Kentucky state flag is two men embracing each other in what looks like to me some type of marriage ceremony. I would have never guessed that Kentucky would have such a progressive flag. Especially, considering Kim Davis, the infamous county clerk, who refused to have same sex marriages in her county, is from Kentucky.

Minutely detailed seals or coats of arms on flags are the worst. Why do so many states have terrible flag designs? Like, most were designed back when flags had to be hand sewn, and in the case of such minutely detailed flags embroidered. Why the fuck would you design a flag that involves fine embroidery when it's meant to be seen from a distance‽

There are only like a handful of good state flags I can name off the top of my head: Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Maryland, Alabama, South Carolina, Colorado, Alaska, and Rhode Island.

I really hate my own state's flag with a passion. :lol:

So true. I remember as a kid, I was at a museum, which had all the state flags lined up ... I was in shock at how many flags were just complete shit. Not a flag I'd be proud of for my state.

That's kinda funny considering your interpretation of the flag and the fact that this month is, I'm told, something called "Pride Month". :P

A grave mistake.

It's a Phrygian cap.

Phrygian cap. Red Phrygian or 'liberty' caps were long associated with the theme of liberty in European and colonial cultures.

My grandmother has the most beautiful version of the Cuban coat of arms hanging in her hallway. Brought it with her from one of her trips back to visit family.

Is there somewhere I can go to create my own cost of arms. I have a few ideas for mine.
Blow: "Nowadays even Liam can release an album of his screechy vocals and it'll probably go #1..."
Ramzus: I can admit that I'm horny just about 24/7
homomorphism: I used to not think your name was deshay and that Erick was just being racist
Hunter: sometimes I think I was literally born to be a pornstar

Why do I suspect your coat if arms would have a nubile lad strapped to the front and lyrics from a classic Bieber song underneath? :squint:
