The saying “Everything is bigger in Texas” shouldn’t be taken lightly.

Not only does the size of the state prove the saying true, but so do many other things in Texans’ day-to-day life.

In some cases, another state’s large size drink is Texas’ medium.

In other situations, the saying has influenced Texas to achieve some of the largest world records.

Here are five of the most Texan Guinness World Records achieved:
