2.You can tell natives and vistors by the way they talk about Oregon.
Vistors: Look at those beautiful trees! WHATS THAT FALLING FROM THE SKY?? Snowboarding, how great is this?! BEACHS, this place has freaking everything! I wish I could live in this beautiful green state! CALIFORNIAS below it! AWSOME!
Natives: Fucking rain, I haven't seen the sun since last fucking year. Fucking snowboarding, you were cool the first time but it fucking snows everother day and who wants to drive three fucking hours to a mountain. Motherfucking beachs! Your always one degrees above freezing you fucking tease. Fuck you Oregon, theres nothing to fucking do here unless you like to fucking watch trees grow or swim in motherfucking freezing beaches, all we got is fucking shitty weed. Fuck Califuckingfornia, even if were a fucking boring state at least our states beautiful and us girls arnt whores with herpes.
Native: Fuck. Oregon. Try "being at peace with nature'' your whole fucking life, my life dream is to cut down every motherfucking tree I see. That what ''being at peace with nature does to you"
Oregon as Firefox sees it.
Timberline Lodge sits on Mt. Hood in Oregon. It is one of the very few (only?) ski resorts in the United States open year-round for skiing, and one of the most famous ski resorts in America. Unfortunately, this view of the building is outdated -- in 1985 the 'Day Lodge' was built on that slope in the center of the photo, on the edge of the parking lot in front of the hotel.
Oregonians are quite proud of their heritage when encountered on the east coast and take very personally when east coasters pronounce their state incorrectly.
P.S.~Oregonians can pronounce Nevada correctly, too.
Oregon Rocks, we have everything. Beaches, Mountains, Rivers, and people who pump our gas for us.
Some cool things about Oregon:
Heavenly rain that's good for you in many ways.
Wood, lots of it.
Mt Hood, great place for snow related sports.
Portland: very unusually clean & friendly city.
No sales tax!!!
Gasoline is graciously pumped for you, stay in the car.
Pendelton round-up (rodeo).
Excellent farm land.
Did I mention that there's lots of fir trees in Oregon?
Oregon is pronounced similar to carbon, not polygon.
Oregon suffers from a moderately poor economy, however nobody really notices it because there's so many services, and so many other cool things about Oregon that you'd never care if it did effect you, unless you're a Californian by heart.
However, I'm obligated to say that Oregon REALLY sucks, so you won't move in.
"Move to upstate New York???? YOU WON'T TAKE ME ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" -meselfs, talking to parents when 9 years old.
"Hey cool, it's raining. Again." -Everyone.
Grandma: "You're soaking wet, meselfs! Take a poncho next time!"
meselfs: "You're no Oregonian. I don't know you."
