You consider a city 500 km away to be "very close". 5. You watch nature documentaries, and think about how good that animal would taste if it were fried. 6. You can cut grass with a machete, but can't start a lawnmower. 7. You speak with authority on the subject of airline travel. 8. You read the international section before the comics. 9. You have friends from or in 29 different countries. 10. You sort your friends by continent. 11. Fitting 15 or more people into a car seems normal to you. 12. You refer to gravel roads as highways. 13. You haggle with the checkout clerk for a lower price. 14. You don't think that two hours is a long sermon. 15.
