I normally don't forward this stuff, but I can relate to 95% of these!!!

Subject: YOU MIGHT BE FROM SOUTH CAROLINA IF...

1. Your idea of a traffic jam is 10 cars waiting to pass a tractor on the highway near Mullins.

2. You know where Mullins is.

3. "Vacation" means going to the family reunion.

4. You've seen all the big bands 10 years after they were popular.

5. You measure distance in minutes.

6. You know several people who have hit a deer.

7. Your school classes were canceled because of cold.

8. Your school classes were canceled because of heat.

9. You've ever had to switch from heat to A/C in the same day.

10. Stores don't have shopping carts, they have buggies.

11. You see a car running in the parking lot at the store with no one in it no matter what time of the year.

12. You use "fix" as a verb. Example: I am fixing to fix dinner.

13. All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, grain, or animal (including pesky insects).

14. You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked (and your car as well).

15. You carry jumper cables in your car...for your own car.

16. You know what "cow tipping" and "snipe hunting" are.

17. You own only 4 spices: salt, pepper, ketchup, and Tabasco.

18. You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.

19. The local papers cover national and international news on one page but require 6 pages for sports.

20. You think the first day of deer season is a national holiday.

21. You find 90 degrees F "a little warm".

22. You know all 4 seasons: Almost Summer, Summer, Still Summer, and Christmas.

23. There is a Dairy Queen in every town with a population of 1,000 or more.

24. Going to Wal-Mart is a favorite pastime known as "goin wal-martin" or off to "Wally World".

25. You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good chili weather.

26. A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola or pop.........it's a Coke, regardless of brand or flavor.

27. You recognize that cheese grits and catfish nuggets is a meal that must have been bestowed upon the people by the Lord Himself.

28. You can be satisfied with a meal consisting only of a hunk of bread with flavored flour and water (a delicacy known as "biscuits 'n gravy").

29. You understand these jokes and forward them to your friends from South Carolina and to a few "fer-ners" who love you anyway.

You might be from Michigan if...

Coast-to-Coast means Port Huron to Muskegon.
Half the people you know say they are from Detroit, but no one you know is actually from the City of Detroit.
You have ever experienced three weeks straight with no sun.
You can identify an Ohio accent.
Your kid's Little League game has ever been snowed out.
You learned to drive a boat or a snowmobile before you learned how to ride a bike.
You've ever gotten frostbite and sunburn in the same week.
Half of the change in your pocket is Canadian.
A Coke is a "pop" and a small stream is a "crick."
You think the alkaline battery was named after the ex-Tiger right fielder.
The biggest holiday of the year is the opening day of deer hunting season.
You own a cabin on a lake where it's too cold to stay 10 months of the year.
"Thumb" is a geographic term, not part of the anatomy, and you use your hand to show people where you live.
You've ever used a snowmobile as transportation to a bar -- and were asked by the bartender to leave your 30-30 outside.
You own only three spices - salt, pepper and ketchup.
You design Halloween costumes to fit over a snowsuit.
Driving is better in the winter because the potholes get filled with ice.
You know the 4 seasons: Winter, Still Winter, Almost Winter, and Construction.
There are only two kinds of vacations -- Florida in the winter or "Up North" in the summer.
