2. Wherever you are, act like it's the place to be.

We all know that 1 in 5 US Americans can't find the United States on a world map. We also know it's because of all the underprivileged children in South Africa and the Iraq.

But in Texas, we know our geography. Are you familiar with these oddly named towns in the Lone Star State?
