Close, but the top third or so of Los Angeles is a separate state, called "rain".

And "yee haw" extends a bit further east.

Yee haw and what are essentially the same thing or yee haw is texas and what? Is yee haw.

was this inspired by my Texas comment?

anyway...

(most of these are not weird stereotypes)

I am Texan and some stereotypes include:

  • that everyone is a cowboy kinda person
  • that everyone is really really big on football. (most people are though...)
  • we only eat barbeque and steak and big juicy burgers. (I wish this was true)
  • we live in a desert
  • everything is bigger in texas
  • we only listen to country music

also, @Scarletfox, if you want you can tell me if any of the above need revising...

Well, I'm from Texas, you know this @Chasmgoat, and here's my opinion. I wear boots 5/7 days a week, love football, everything is bigger in Texas, and I'm listening to country music right now. If I could I would basically only eat burgers, brisket, and sausage. So basically most of those stereotypes are true for me.

Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes.  There's also this kinda L shaped segment that includes Oregon, Washington and extends across and down with the Rocky and Cascade Mountains that I refer to as Cold Rocks.

Idaho: potatoes

This one is very true. We get school off here during the harvest season, and I have worked for a farmer.

New Yorkers are terrible drivers. I find this weird because my experience has been that non-New Yorkers are terrible drivers. They go. So. SLOW!!!

Which is why everybody thinks New Yorkers are terrible. I hate driving pushy, but I don’t drive in a town bigger than 15,000 people. Usually

We also have terrible roads and idiotic traffic laws. Not to mention bikers and pedestrians who never follow the laws and truck drivers who won’t use truck routes. Oh, and the DoT intentionally messes with the lights and keeps blocking emergency routes with concrete sidewalks or narrowing streets to the point that fire engines can’t turn. And there is NEVER enough parking.

Between which you have to be A: a very good driver and B: a very aggressive one. Defensive driving in NYC means being aggressive and knowing when to take a risk and knowing when following the traffic law is stupid and WILL get you killed. (Cough... Gowanus to the Brooklyn Battery... cough) It also means learning to ignore curses and horns. Being non-aggressive is more likely to get you into an accident, honestly.

Try driving the Jackie sometime. Two tiny, narrow lanes and multiple hairpin turns in succession. Or the aforementioned Gowanus, where it’s safer to enter long before its legal to do so!

The problem tends to occur when we take this kind of driving elsewhere, where being aggressive isn’t safer or when tourists come to New York and fail to realize that aggressive = safe here.

And this is why I have no care to visit big cities. Lincoln is plenty for me.

Western PA: 

We all speak Pittsburghese, which basically means 'yinz' instead of 'you,' adding "'n'at" to the end of every clause, and talking like you're garbling stones. Wayne would love it.

We're all die hard Steelers fans (Stillers in Pittsburghese).

SINKHOLES!!!

For some reason, a lot of people don't think New Mexico is part of the United States of America. It gets so confusing. NEW MEXICO IS NOT PART OF MEXICO PEOPLE! Sorry for yelling.

My favorite is "Florida man charged with assualt with a deadly weapon, after he threw an allagator through a Wndy's drive thru Window"

No. This has been irritating me for years. As in, long before I moved to New Mexico.

I get it if you live outside of the U.S. But seriously! I learned the names of all 50 states in 2nd grade. So when I come across adults that think New Mexico is part of Mexico, I get really frustrated.
