    Big state. We are the size of 4-5 states, with 3 of the top 10 sized cities in the US. That would be like comparing Texas to PA/NY/NJ/MA area.


    Yep. Some years ago before I quit smoking, a guy asked me how long it took to drive across Texas. I told him he better figure on 3 packs of smokes.

    Alaskans say they could split their state and make Texas #3!

    Texas square miles = 268,820
    Alaska square miles = 663,268

    So they're wrong. Rounded off it would make 2.47 of Texas.

    And cut in half, both halves of Alaska would be 331,634. Making Texas number 3. So they are right.

    Evidently that 268,820 Square miles is a lot more usable real estate than that 663,268 Square Miles.

    Imagine if Russia had not sold Alaska to us how many sleepless nights we would have had if Russia had been our next door neighbor during the cold war ?

    Yep, but the Alaskans could fire up their manure spreaders and make Texas the size of Rhode Island!

    The spreaders would never make it out of Austin. The combined output of our mayor and city council would overwhelm them all
