    I recall the TF testkit guy telling me that 'by far', he ships more test kits to Texas than anywhere else.

    That doesn't necessarily mean that there are more of us Texans....it just proves that we're smarter!

    By the way...who do we have to talk to so we can get a Lonestar State flag emoji created to punctuate all of our great posts?

    Re: Where do you live?

    The number of people on the forum from each state roughly corresponds to the number of swimming pools in each state. According to Quantcast which measures traffic, there are more uniques (cookies) from California, then Florida, Texas, Arizona, New York, which makes sense given the populations. However, what is interesting is that in terms of page impressions, the ranking is Texas, California, Florida, Arizona, New York which means that Texans spend more time on the site in terms of looking at more pages.

    He snuck in and fixed it later. jblizzle's quote has evidence of the missing apostrophe.

    Of course I did. And I offered my thanks for pointing out the error of my ways.

    I just said that we're smarter, not infallible!

    I hope this thread gets some legs. I'd like to see the outcome.

    I'm not sure what is means, but about half our Mods are from Texas.
