You know your from Arendal when:
You have a baby at 14.
You grew up your entire life planning to have a baby at 14.
You think that theres nothing wrong with gender inequality because people choose it themselves.
You think that a pair of white plastic pants, and your spray-
on tan is a sure thing in every wardrobe related situation.
You work out to become "sver"
You think that adding vegetables to any meal is gay.
You initiate five out of ten conversations by saying "Gæbbeluniz!! Å faen!!?"
When not initiating a conversation in this manner you contact people, especially "ostlendingaa" with the phrase "du!, ska e banke du ellå?"
You eat kebabs drunk while slacking of "udlendingå", not realising the irony.
You're very concerned about not being gay, but you don't like beer, you rather drink Smirinoff Ice (Smenaaff) or Bacardi breezer (Baekaedi).
You think that raising your voice is an effective way of winning an argument.
