    Where in the world are you from?

    Sorry that there are 23423423 threads on this but I don't feel like looking for an old one. Sooo where are you from? country/ State/ province/ whatever. And tell me a stereotype people have of your area and if it's true. go!

    Ontario, Canada.

    Sterotype of Canada, watch this.
    It's actually the most amazing thing ever, gives me great pride in my country. The beginning is slow, but stick with it.

    As for my town.
    Sterotype is we are all hicks. Hunting, wear camo to prom kind of hicks, who don't understand what the rest of the world is like and we are poor.
    Not true at all.

    Texas

    Stereotypes of Texas and Texans:
    - We have thick southern accents and talk like George Bush. Most people don't have an accent, I've probably met 2 people my own age that have one. And they're both from east Texas. People who live in the city don't really have accents.
    - We own a horse and live on a ranch. I've never ridden a horse before
    - We all own a gun. Never owned one or have touched one haha.
    - Football is god. This is mostly true, the world stops on game day pretty much.

    I don't know what other stereotypes we have.

    Curious as well.

    Southern Ontario. As far as my city goes, we're all druggies. My city is actually pretty ghetto.

    Lmao, that's amazing. I'm from Southern Ontario too (though it's not the farthest south, it's not central or northern).

    People say my city is really small and there's nothing to do, it's 94,000 which is small in comparison to TO but there are smaller. Not too many stereotypes about my city specifically but the ones about Canada and Toronto.
    The road to perfection is always under construction.

    ummm, I guess ppl think my town/Canada in general is obsessed with hockey, this is true. I'm actually from Sydney Crosby's hometown.

    Also, is anyone here from Peterborough, or Waterloo, or Kingston, ON? I'm debating which of these cities to go to school in. JW which is the best

    I can't think of any stereotypes for the province as a whole, but Cape Bretoners supposedly all drink a lot. Definitely not true, but I'm betting most of us can drink most mainlanders under the table lol.
