look up any word, like pussy:
 
1.
when you have lived in klamath falls for so long that the girls that you would normal think are ugly, eventually become attractive to you. such as a girl from anywhere else that would be rated as a 4 on a scale from 1 to 10, eventually would become an 8 on a scale from 1 to 10 in klamath falls.
ex1: if you thought you were a hot ass bitch in klamath falls, and you went to the pearl district, as a woman the only thing you could think is im fat, ugly, stupid, and i need a bathroom to throw-up in
ex2: Guy 1- that chick that i nailed last night was hot.
