    Texas also has real cowboys, oustanding cheerleaders, better Mexican food and more oil.

    how's the climbing in Texas?
    Some people are just like Slinky's. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    France has better mountains, beaches, cities, food, fashion, cycling, landscapes, history, and culture. But Texas is still bigger. And hotter.

    Depends...

    If you're a boulderer then Fontainebleau is the place to be though Hueco Tanks is no slouch either. For rela vertical stuff, France has Texas by the short & curlies!

    French fries vs. Texas toast.

    French kissing vs. Texas hold 'em.

    These are pretty tough questions.

    OK, now who would have ever guessed that the greatest Tour de France rider in history would come from friggin Texas.

    I mean, go figure. That's like the best QB ever coming from Marseilles.

    It's better to burn out than fade away...or slip out of your pedal and face plant on the side of the road!!!

    I've been to Texas and France, and there is no comparison between the women. France wins hands down every time.

    Okay that's enough Texas bashing. Moved to Texas 10 years ago for economic reasons. Best move I ever made. Been to France many times and have enjoyed the beauty of its people and places. Lance won the genetic lottery for endurance, just happens to be from Texas. I know his mother and she is one smart savy lady. Now leave Texas out of this.
