Well, that's my take on it, Gokul could have also meant you're mad as cut snakes.Ah ok. Just wondering. =)
Having been to Georgia, Mississippi, Kentucky, NC, SC, Georgia and Texas... Texas isn't the "south" that people fear/hate in my view. I think people forget (not you obviously!) that Texas is HUGE, and very rural, but that it also has some truly impressive cities. Austin impressed the hell out of me, and I went in ready to loathe the place on general principles as a 'Yankee'.
That said, I'd really REALLY hate to commit or be wrongfully convicted of a crime in Texas. You western state do NOT mess around when it comes to finishing off the condemned.
