Texas is home to many top universities including UT, Rice, SMU, and Texas A&M. Not to mention that the School for the Talented and Gifted in Dallas, TX is ranked as the number one high school in America.

7. That all Texans are extreme bible-thumpers who are intolerant of all other views.

Austin and San Antonio were named two of the top ten friendliest cities by Condé Nast, and all Texas cities were absent from the Unfriendliest list. Also, does the name Wendy Davis ring a bell?

8. That we are obsessed with cowboy hats and boots.

Stevie Ray Vaughan, Beyoncé, ZZ Top, Toadies, and Janis Joplin are all from Texas just to name a few.

10. That everyone owns at least one horse and a handful of cattle.

If you can find me the land and money, be my guest. We'd rather have a pool.

11. That we all enjoy threatening to secede from the Union.

13. That we all come from rich oil families or work in petroleum.

It's not like There Will Be Blood out here. We're home to Texas Instruments, Frito-Lay, Dr. Pepper, Mary Kay, and JCPenney.

14. That our Southern manners means that we act like we're superficial and two-faced.

15. That we must be crazy about hunting and pride ourselves on the size of our game.
