Default Pennsylvania

You've never referred to Philadelphia as anything but "Philly." And New Jersey has always been "Jersey."

You refer to Pennsylvania as "PA" (pronounced Peeay).How many other states do that?

You know what "Punxsutawney Phil" ( A Ground Hog ) is, and what it means if he sees his shadow.

The first day of buck and the first day of doe season are school holidays.

You can use the phrase "fire hall wedding reception" and not even bat an eye.

You can't go to a wedding without hearing the "Chicken Dance, " at least 1 Polka and either an Italian song (sung in Italian, ) or "Hava Nagila."

At least 5 people on your block have electric "candles" in all or most of their windows all year long.

You know what a "Hex sign" is.

You know what a "State Store" is, and your out of state friends find it incredulous that you can't purchase liquor at the mini-mart.

You own only three condiments "salt, pepper and Heinz ketchup."

Words like "hoagie, " "crick, " "chipped ham, " "sticky buns, " "shoo-fly pie, " "pirogues" and "pocketbook" actually mean something to you.

You can eat cold pizza (even for breakfast) and know others who do the same. (Those from NY find this "barbaric.")

You not only have heard of Birch Beer, but you know it comes in several colors: Red, White, Brown, Gold.

You know several places to purchase or that serve Scrapple, Summer Sausage (Lebanon Bologna), and Hot Bacon Dressing.

You can eat a cold soft pretzel from a street vendor without fear and enjoy it.

You know the difference between a cheese steak & a pizza steak sandwich and a Primanti's, and know that you can't get a really good one outside PA.

You live for summer, when street and county fairs signal the beginning of funnel cake season.

Customers ask the waitress for "dippy eggs" for breakfast.

You know that Blue Ball, Intercourse, Climax, Bird-in-Hand, Beaver, Moon, Virginville, Paradise, Mars, and Slippery Rock are PA towns.

You know what a township, borough, and commonwealth is.

You can identify drivers from New York, New Jersey, Ohio, or other neighboring states by their unique and irritating driving habits.

A traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a horse-drawn carriage on the highway in Lancaster County.

You know several people who have hit deer more than once.

You carry jumper cables in your car and your female passengers know how to use them.

You still keep kitty litter, starting fluid, de-icer, or a snow brush in your trunk, even if you live in the South.

Driving is always better in winter because the potholes are filled with snow.

As a kid you built snow forts and leaf piles that were taller than you were.

Your graduating class consisted of mostly Polish, German, & Italian names.

"You guys" and "yinz" is a perfectly acceptable reference to a group of men & women.

You know how to respond to the question "Djeetyet?"

You learned to pronounce Bryn Mawr, Wilkes-Barre, Schuylkill, Bala Cynwyd, Conshohocken, and Monongahela.

You know what a "Mummer" is, and are disappointed if you can't catch at least highlights of the parade.

You actually understand these jokes and send them on to other Pennsylvanians.
Plus friends who you want to know -- why you think the way you do.
Aerodynamics are for people who can't build engines. --Enzo Ferrari

I've got some more for Nevada, specifically Las Vegas:

You know you're from Las Vegas, Nevada when.......

You buy salsa by the gallon.

You think a red light is merely a suggestion.

All of your out-of-state friends start to visit after October but clear out come the end of April.

You think someone driving wearing oven mitts is clever.

You think 6 tons of crushed rock makes a beautiful yard.

You notice your car overheating before you drive it.

You no longer associate bridges (or rivers) with water.

You know a "swamp cooler" is not a happy hour drink.

You can say 115 degrees without fainting. (But it's a dry heat!!!)

Every other vehicle is a 4x4.

You can be in the snow, then drive for an hour and it will be over l00 degrees.

Vehicles with open windows have the right-of-way in the summer.

People break out coats when temperature drops below 70.

You discover, in July, it only takes two fingers to drive your car.

The pool can be warmer than you are.

You can make sun tea instantly.

You run your air conditioner in the middle of winter so you can use your fireplace.

Kids will ask, "What's a mosquito?"

People with black cars, or who have black upholstery in their car, are automatically assumed to be from out-of-state or nuts.

The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.

The Air Conditioner is on your list of best friends.

You realize that Valley Fever isn't a disco dance.

You can finish a Big Gulp in 10 minutes and go back for seconds.

The water from the cold water tap is the same temperature as the hot one.

It's noon in July, kids are on summer vacation, and not one person is moving on the streets.

You actually burn your hand opening the car door.

Sunscreen is sold year round, kept at the front of the checkout counter, a formula less than 30 spf is a joke, and you wear it just to go to Circle K.

Some fool can market mini-misters for joggers and other fools will actually buy them.

No one would dream of putting vinyl upholstery in a car.

And no, we do not live in Los Angeles and commute every day! People actually live in Las Vegas!

[LIST][*]Your sexy lingerie is a pair of tube socks and a flannel nightshirt.
I'm so Canadian that the only silk undies I possess are a set of long johns from MEC. :LOL:

(MEC = Mountain Equipment Co-op, a bit like REI Outfitters I think. Oh, and the silk baselayers are THE BEST - warm enough to wait for the bus in -20C weather, but you don't get parboiled once you're indoors).

Here's a selection from the "You Know You're From Belgium When..." list:

2. You’re used to see chocolate shops, restaurants and cafés at every corner of a street

3. You’re shocked that ‘frites/fritten’ are called French fries in US English instead of ‘Belgian fries’

5. Road and street works, and double-parking are common in every major city

8. You proclaim of being proud to be Belgian abroad while not knowing the text of your national anthem (Brabançonne)

9. You're not surprised your politicians never get along. After all, which country has six parliaments, more than 60 ministers and no national political parties?

10. You consider that driving or moving 20km away is already "far"

11. You dream of building your own house in an already very densely populated country

13. You proudly state that Belgian beers are the best in the world - actually French and Dutch beers taste like cats pee

14. You think that in spite of our language-related issues, French-speakers and Flemish is like an old couple who can't live apart and who will stick to its "enfant terrible" Brussels

16. You know that administration is a fu**ing nightmare

17. You always complain about your country in Belgium, but realize once abroad that Belgium is far from being as bad as you thought

18. You spent part of your summer holidays at the Belgian seaside, eating ice cream and driving a Cuistax as a child

23. You’re used to be the target of dumb French and Dutch jokes

24. You have a medicine chest full of medicines at home

29. You’re used that your bread is automatically cut ‘coupé/gesneden’ by your baker

30. You have to hurry up to go shopping before the shops close at 18.30

31. You enjoy one of the best and most efficient health care services in the world

32. You think that mayonnaise is a delicious sauce with the frites - but mayonnaise is just one choice among 20 other sauces you get in a "friterie/frituur" (frites shop)

33. You take your car to drive 500m to go to the bakery on Sunday to buy your croissants (oh yes, bakeries are open in Belgium in Sundays)

34. You realize abroad that almost nothing is known about your country, except the chocolates, beers, Tintin and the EU

35. You inwardly think that non-European immigrants are too numerous, except when you visit their night shops and kebab shops

36. You still think that Côte d’Or is a Belgian brand (it’s part of the Swiss Kraft Foods now although the chocolates are still produced in Belgium)

37. You get angry when you’re told that Magritte, Jacques Brel and Hergé were French and that Rubens was Dutch (ALL Belgians )

40. You will not find disturbing to see a map of your country with that title upon it “Ceci n’est pas la Belgique’ ("This is not Belgium")

43. You have the most sympathy for the German-speaking Belgians, a tiny minority that has never made a fuss

45. You use words that no foreigner understands like: speculoos, ring (not the jewelry), BHV,....

47. You think it's strange that voting is not compulsory abroad

48. Scandals in all kind and corruption is part of Belgian life

49. You have already made some moonlighting (travail au noir/werk in zwart) in your life

50. Sinterklaas/Saint-Nicolas brought you presents on the 6th December when you were a child (the origininal Saint-Nick/Santaclause)

54. You live in a street where no two houses are alike (houses in bricks, of course)

62. You’re used to the smell of warm waffles in the Brussels metro stations

63. You’re proud that Antwerp is the second biggest port in Europe and the biggest hub for diamonds trade and a fashion mecca

66. You have a natural distrust towards authority and politicians, because of our turbulent history

68. You claim that Bruges is one of the most romantic and most beautiful places in the world, but you would never go there because of all the tourists (and secretely hate it!)

70. You’re used to come across tourists carrying bags full of Belgian chocolates and staring at "Belgian lace shops"

72. You’re proud that most of the international organisations in Europe are located in your capital

73. You’re awfully discontent each time you see how much you’ve to pay for your telecommunications and Internet connection bills every two months (Belgian internet bills are the highest in Europe)

75. You’re used to eating "koffiekoeken" (pastries) on Sunday mornings

78. You studied during the Xmas holidays when you were a student

84. You're used to passing prostitutes behind a pink lighted window and you don't even shrug your shoulders at seeing guys coming out of those buildings.

98. Nobody but your fellow countrymen understand when you say ‘amai’ and ‘allez, dis’

99. You say ‘please’ in English when giving something to someone instead of "here you are"

The ones I removed where either not really true or too "politically incorrect"
