In Norwegian there is a word, that means that something is crazy, off the hook and states that something is out of control, that word is “Texas”. You will hear Norwegians say “That was totally Texas” after having a party of epic proportions. The Lone Star State of Texas is the home of the Longhorn, Willie Nelson, Stevie Ray Vaughn, ZZ Top, Pantera, Thirteenth Floor Elevators, the Giant movie and South By Southwest festival.
