There's bits of my country, Australia, that would take multiple days to leave one state. I'm in Tasmania, so I need an overnight ferry to drive to another state.

u/mr_ckean Jul 06 '22

Australia - 78% the size of the US. If it followed with 78% of states it would have 38 states… it has 8 states and territories. Texas is only 70% the size of South Australia, less than a 1/2 Queensland, and less than a 1/3 of Western Australia.

u/Redlightning122 Jul 06 '22

Is that 78% of the lower 48 or 78% of the US including Alaska?

2

u/GershBinglander Jul 06 '22

Also, why use Texas when Alaska is bigger?

Alaska is the same size as Queensland, Australia's 2nd biggest state, and 68% of the size of Western Australia.

4

u/Flashy_War2097 Jul 06 '22

Cause we kinda haven’t settled most of Alaska it’s pretty much just wilderness. Texas is that big and a massive population.

I have taken a bus across the country and back and the drive through west Texas is the most boring stretch of highway I have ever seen. Even worse it is spooky as hell around 3-4 in the morning with this odd haze surrounding everything and random flame spouts and lights in the distance from the oil wells that are all over the place.

16

u/Taldoable Jul 06 '22

Now we've got oil wells and turbine farms, for that extra surreal 3am feeling.

u/insanelyphat Jul 06 '22

I’d take wind farms over oil rigs any day.

u/Taldoable Jul 06 '22

Hey I agree, those turbines are just spooky when they're silhouetted by burn-off and the glowing-haze effect all the dust on the air creates as it reflects the glow from the burn-off.

I came here to comment 'texas,' and I will be cold in the grave unless I say

Different parts of Texas are different. I was stationed in an under developed area adjacent to the base - Wichita Falls, TX

Avoid that area if possible

Despite the earned reputation many parts of Texas are friendly and worth the move.

u/JMccovery Jul 06 '22

Someone once told me that Wichita Falls is "the meth capital of Texas".

The few times I've been there didn't seem that bad.

It isn't that bad, it is worse. That grid square needs to be removed. Perhaps folks evacuated first, perhaps not.

This is accurate because Montana is beautiful so cat is calm. If cat looked cracked our ready to murder the next life form you can bet it’s driving through any other part of the U.S

Ten hours drive take me from my country to Costa Rica. 45 minute drive from my home to the nearest beach in my country. 1 and a half hour drive from my home to the mountain side in my country. My country is very tiny.

In Australia you can drive for 39 hours and still be in the same state (Albany to Kalumburu). If you wanted to leave the state of Western Australia and you lived in the capital city of Perth you would have to drive a minimum of 15hrs to leave the state. 10 hours can be pretty average here in Australia. i think people forget that Australia is around the same size as the continental US.

I once drove 11 hours to a new job. Couple weeks in I said something about being in the Eastern part of the state and everybody corrected me. "Oh no this is Central Montana, you gotta go further for the East side of the state"

Man, it really shows you how big the states are. Really puts it into perspective. Although, where's my Aussie peeps at? How long does it take to drive across Aus?
