Live in North America? While you don’t think about it much, when you tell your friends from outside of North America where you live, they may not tell you what they are really thinking. And they certainly are thinking. So what does living in North America actually say about you?

1. You are alive

Typical North American pose


Unless your address is the North American Cemetery, people who live in North America are living, breathing Homo sapiens who not only have a pulse, but they eat, drink, and sleep just like non-North Americans.

2. You have dreams

I wish I had a dream like this last night. Instead, and I’m completely serious, I dreamed I was on a landed plane in a desert-y location where terrorist snipers were picking off passengers who deboarded. Two had just left the plane and I wasn’t sure if they had made it to safety. I was next.

When sleeping at night for long stretches of time, sometimes you enter an REM state and dream about things.

3. Sometimes you’re sad or discouraged

It’s true. It’s so true.

4. You see joggers

North Americans occasionally see joggers running. Some join them, others don’t.

5. Food

Last of all, living in North America means you eat food. And that may be the most significant of all of the stereotypes, except for maybe number one.
