The Black Tower is totally Texas!?

Is this true?

Norwegians use the word "texas" as slang to mean crazy, it has emerged. But when did this start happening, and how unusual is it?

 

To most of the world, Texas is known as a big state in southern America.

 

But to Norwegians, it is also a word that frequently crops up in everyday conversation - often in the phrase "Der var helt texas!" [That was very completely/totally texas!].

 

The word is slang for "crazy" or "wild" and is used to refer to a chaotic atmosphere

Well.. I suppose that's an image that would resemble some people in Scandinavia, though which language he's supposed to speak I have no idea :tongue:

I´ve never heard of those expressions before. There is nothing like it here in Sweden. 

 

I'd say that was insulting but then I recalled that I think of most Scandinavians as variations on the Swedish chef, so...

 

Ha, ha.

It´s obviously Danish. *nods*

    • They, as in the old saying. 
    • Noone is doing that type of poll at present. It should be noted that Biden has always been popular in Northeast PA, Lehigh- Allentown-Bethleham area which  are the old steel mill towns that swung 20% -40% between the 2012 and 2016 elections.
    • Actually read the London Mail's article on the proposed Alabama statute and similar statutes the goal is to have the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade which would return the abortion issue to individual states.  Alabama, Georgia, etc would prohibit abortions of Fetus after a heartbeat is detected. New York and California would be free to continue there policy of allowing abortions till the child is actually born (and even  afterword if  a late term Fetus survives being aborted.)      "Can you point out where exactly the constitution defines what a Person is? Whether Embryonic Cells, or even a Fetus are a 'person'?"   It does not it leaves such questions to the individual states.
    • Nope if you actually are going to opine about a law at least have the sense to look at the damn statute or an arucle that actually cites the law.   Alabama lawmakers propose law that would punish abortion providers with up to 99 years in prison in bid to get Supreme Court reversal of Roe v Wade Republicans introduced bill into the Alabama Senate and House on Tuesday Bill would make performing abortions Class A felony, punishable up to 99 years Would not punish women receiving abortions and includes medical exemption https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6889279/Alabama-lawmakers-propose-law-making-performing-abortions-felony.html   The proposed law specifically applies only to abortion providers not the women who attempt or get abortions.
    • Sammael altering the minds of the people is probably a result of the connection he has with the Dark One. We have seen the black cords off Ba alzammon and Asmodean in previous books. That connection allows the Dark One to influence the world a bit more in spite of the seals being in place. But it is a probably a limited range like a city wide range of influence. Tear was affected to by Be'lal in the same way.
