My original thought about the Natives post was something about the “You know you’re from X when…” lists that every state and region has. But it was too wordy and incoherent so I went for short and simple. Five minutes after I posted it, though, someone forwarded me a “You know you’re from Arizona when…” list.

Most of the arizona list is indistinguishable from any other list. “You think a red light is merely a suggestion” is probably on every other list (except the North Dakota one, which has no need for lights). “You notice your car overheating before you drive it” is on every list south of Iowa. Nearly all the entries are fairly stupid and stereotypical. And my observation didn’t even make the list.

I did find one gem though, if you want to take the test:

You can (correctly) pronounce the words: saguaro, ocotillo, Tempe, Gila Bend, Tucson, San Xavier, Canyon de Chelly, Mogollon Rim, cholla, and Ajo.
