Local stereotypes.

Tell me some. 

A few seconds ago, I realized I was standing at my back door staring at the rain.  OMG IT'S WATER FROM THE SKYYYYY!  I may not be originally from AZ, but I definitely participate in the rain-staring.

You go.

    Ditto Maratea. We have anti-meth billboards everywhere, and the are nasty.

    People have asked me if we have electricity, and if I ride a horse to school. I say nope and yep, respectively. Those people may continue to think that we are stuck somehwere in the 1800s.

    There are a few stereotypes that have some basis though.
    For example, we really loves our guns. Like, Gollum style love our guns.

    And, there is zero tolerance for homosexuality. My best friend had to transfer schools from his small town to a bigger city here because he is gay, and the town made it apparent he wasn't welcome.
