Top 10 Things Only People In Idaho Know
Let's face it, people who don't live here just don't know. In many ways, Idaho is a world unto itself. And these are the top 10 signs you're from Idaho.
You realize that no matter how hard you explain it to the world, they will never understand that Iowa and Idaho are not the same state.
You know how to kill about 57 different breeds of spiders.
"I drove my first car when I was 11 1/2."
You know immediately that Butch Otter is not the name of a muscular marine mammal.
"I shot my first gun when I was 4 1/2."
You're baffled (and simultaneously appreciative) that Niagara Falls at 165 feet tall is more popular than Shoshone Falls at 212 feet tall.
You bristle in rage when others perceive us as behind the times, and immediately direct them towards the inventors of Solar Roadways located in Sandpoint.
"Wait, you gave me fries... and NO FRY SAUCE?!?!"
Canyons, mountains, forests, lakes, rivers, ice caves, a bomb shelter, craters of the moon exhibit... and that's just your backyard...
You take pride in the fact that the northern part of Idaho is Pacific time, but the southern part is Mountain time, which is interesting given that the easternmost part of Nevada is Pacific time, even though it's further east than the westernmost part of Idaho which is Mountain time.
