I found this short animated video pretty interesting. It explains why slow flowing rivers on relatively flat terrain (most Texas rivers) will ALWAYS be curvy and continually change course.

Not my video, just found it interesting.

Lies! God carved those rivers out with his finger. That's what I was told and I'm sticking with it!

Almost agree, not sure about how God did it.

They say that over time, all rivers will become straight given enough time....
