    Sister cities as far as I know. I have met more people that were Boulder Colorado natives or from the area when I have been in Berkley and Santa Barbara then when I am in Boulder.

    Those are great lists, my favorite so far are the "super cub", " Both you AND your dog have therapist" and "A “hill” is any landmass higher than 20 feet above sea level.

    Specifically Boulder Colorado, and I am sure other places will get some of these too.

    You know you are in or from Boulder when -

    It seems 80% of the people you meet are named "Dude" and it appears to be your new name now too.

    Bicycles magically transform between being pedestrians or cars depending on the traffic light.

    You know the difference between an "oval lactyl vegetarian" and vegetarian.

    You pay 20% more for anything you'll find 10 miles away in any other city in the state but Aspen.

    The term vegan gets used a lot.

    You will find a "All American Dinner" that boasts a "strictly vegetarian menu."

    4 of the 5 girls you know who will eat meat will not eat chicken off the bone.

    Most of the people that have SUVs do not know if it is "all wheel drive" or "4x4."

    The Homeless people don't bother saying "Thank you" if you give them anything shy of a $20.

    There are kids testing out of High school at the age of 4.

    Restaurants will occasionally supply booster seats for dogs.

    All Banks and Liquor stores have dog biscuits at the cash register.

    People think the parking spot on the public street in front of their house is theirs and will call towing companies.

    "Rubber Necking" is what happens before the car accident when driving through CU campus.

    Drug testing only happens at 10% of the businesses and that 10% will tell you where to get the "solution in a bottle."

    1 out of every 100 drivers acutely use their Eco-Pass, and it is usually for taking the bus to the mall because they had to park so far away.

    When the comment, " I was born and raised in Boulder" is spoken everyone stops talking and stares at you.

    You will find "tobacco free smoke shops."

    Some areas of town you can not smoke cigarettes outside.

    More than 75% of cars have "Free Tebet" bumperstickers.

    Dogs have equal rights to children, but can be shot if the dog is a pitbull. sad but true.

    The police are the scariest of the drivers on the road - that is when they are acutely moving.

    You say "whole nother"

    You know about the "big basket"

    You know why we're the "Birthplace of Aviation," and that people from North Carolina are just jealous with that "First in Flight" business.

    That is SO TRUE. I just was in the mountains with my friend from Pitt (originally Mars) and last night was Wing night at a bar close by (as a bird flies anyway) and he kept talking about it, and talking,....he went to the place one time for a pick up and has been obsessed ever since. And he said they aren't even that good. Anyway it was only a factor of the miserable weather that stopped us from going. "Long Live Frank and Theresa!"

    eta, I had to call him and he wanted everyone to know we had " 'kolbossy" from the only real polish deli around - "don ton" - with kraut and slaw without mayo last night. Instead of hitting the 35 cent wing night from Pete's Beaver Park Inn.

    1. A mountain peak over 14,000 feet. It is a big deal around CO because we have so many and we like to have ascended more then any other person we know - I am only at 18 and Most people I know / grown up with have more then I ( I also cheated and got 3 in in one day, but had to base camp to do it ). http://www.14ers.com/photos/photos_14ers1.html

    2.Horance Tabor owned the property that Paint Your Wagon was shot on-location and where my family owns a collapsed Silver mine. Elizabeth was quite a lady - pretty too - and has a city in Colorado named after her not to mention all the famious men of the "old west http://www.babydoetabor.com/.

    I can't believe anyone doesn't know what a terrible towel is???
    And "Agnes"? DJ - friend from PA didn't know that one either. TMI I assume is Too Much Information.

    BTW, Rachael, is it Rachael F?
