You could drive a car for over 1,000 miles in a straight line and never leave Alaska. Your state fits inside my state.— Dan (@1994sucked) December 29, 2020
How many cities in Ontario? Alaska? And cities do not include small clusters of buildings. Besides, you can go from El Paso to California without seeing much of any civilization. Or New Mexico, Arkansas, or Mississippi, for that matter. Oklahoma is pretty much OKC and Tulsa, too. Believe me, between Florida and California, Texas is an oasis.
As a Canadian, that mostly just tells me there's nothing interesting in the 834 miles between Beaumont and El Paso.— Rob Hilton (@Blue_Mage) December 29, 2020
Texas might be bigger than Alberta, but it's a lot smaller than Ontario.
