Are you from Ohio?

Thursday, March 27, 2003 5:13 PM
Something interesting I noticed:

http://www.50states.com/facts/ohio_if.htm

You're from Ohio if:

6. You're proud of your state fair, but would rather go to Cedar Point.

15. You always visit more than two amusement parks in one summer.

18. "Vacation" means spending a day at Cedar Point or King's Island.

:)

Please visit the small parks. We don't know what's happening behind the scenes

It is my personal belief that Lesourdsville Lake is closed for 2003. I'll let you know if anything is announced.

My Lord, how true it is....

The only one they forgot was 'You know you're from Ohio if you use the word 'please?' in the place of 'excuse me?''

My favorite is the four seasons: Winter, Still Winter, Almost Winter, and Construction. Too funny.

Hmm...towards the river in Missouri has a different meaning, especially in North Missouri. That means East, West AND South. No wonder they call it "the state where the rivers run."

Funny though...The thing I remember most about Ohio is the song -- .Hang on Sloopy, Sloopy Hang on, O - H - I - O!

Overpeck, Ohio reporting in. Here are some interesting facts about Cincinnati......

You know you're from Cincinnati if:

Someone mentions a three-way, and you think of chili instead of sex.

Instead of saying "what?" or "huh?" you say "please?"

Your favorite convenient store sounds like a labor union (United Dairy Farmers).

You can't hear the words "Mike Brown" without getting angry.

You honestly believe that Pete Rose should be in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

You somehow have a soft spot for Marge Schott.

It doesn't seem weird to you that everyone has an Uncle Al.

Your favorite Coney Island isn't in New York.

You like Nick Clooney better than George Clooney. [You're also showing your age]
You know how Jerry Springer got his start.

You know what a pony keg is.

You have friends and neighbors with names like Machenheimer, Guckenberger, Schlottman, Schoenling, and Schweitering.

You know what brats and metts are, and you've probably tasted goetta.

You know that cars (like eggs) are cheaper in the country.

You know that Cherokee Motors was located at 7505 Vine (where Paddock meets Vine at the big Indian sign). [again dating yourself] [And what about lunch at the Wigwam]

An all-boys or all-girls school doesn't seem that odd to you -- (since there's probably one in your neighborhood, and maybe you even went to it).

You think a mixed marriage is when an East Sider marries a West Sider.

You know the difference between Hudy and "Who Dey."

You know what cream ale is, and you think that cream soda should be bright red.

Someone says "Norwood" and you automatically laugh -- (unless you actually live there).

You can visit California, Lebanon, and Moscow -- and go Over-the-Rhine -- all in the same day.

You hate Cleveland (even though you've probably never been there).

You have to cross the Ohio River to see a strip show (or buy a Hustler magazine). [once the Gaiety was closed down]

You know in which state the Greater Cincinnati Airport is located

God.....

Schulers Wigwam.....I miss the place. The goetta is still delicious. And yes, I'm a proud owner of a photograph of me in Uncle Al's arms at Lunken airport when I was 5. Ah, the memories.....

I've been to all of the major theme parks in Ohio, but I don't even live in the USA :)

I've seen half of those Ohio things applied to other Midwest states as well...

I'm a proud Columbus resident, and just like every other resident of THE LARGEST CITY IN OHIO and 15th biggest city in the nation, constantly trying to get respect for the city. ;)

That "pop" thing has flowed over into western PA. Eastern PA has no idea what pop is, it's soda there. We also measure distance in minutes.

You know you're from Cleveland if you haven't actually been to the Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. ;)

I've lived in Northeast Ohio my entire life thus far, but I still call it "soda" out of protest.

I have a friend who moved to the Miami area about ten years ago, growing up in the Toledo area. One of the first things he realized was that, contrary to his belief growing up, not everyone has a Cedar Point nearby. While he never wants to see winter again, he still thinks it's a shame to not have a park like that nearby.

Louisville Ohio here. I saw that list about 6 months ago... so sad that I can relate to almost all of those things on there. Yes, the four seasons are so true. With that being said I still like living here!

Warren, Ohio and as much as I do call it "pop" it should have the universal name of "carbonated beverage." And I do know how to make buckeyes, best cookie/candy there is. And one year when I was little my Halloween costume was a snowsuit.
