Texas-Europe size compansion
this changes everything oh my god
suddenly it makes sense why out-of-country people ask what part of the USA i’m from
omfg, Luxembourg is basically the size of the Tarrant/Dallas counties put together.
Hooooly crap. That’s sorta terrifying.
Ohhh this is nice. Hopefully this helps people understand why I don’t hesitate to remark that different portions of Texas are different from others (and why the prospect of driving somewhere doesn’t phase me until you tell me it’ll take about 12 hours, 12 is getting a bit long even for me).
Other fun factoid: it takes longer to drive from Houston to El Paso than it does Houston to Chicago. As in Chicago, Illinois.
