25% buffalo for me. i used "half x's" ("/"s) to indicate sections that are only partly true for me. 25% isn't bad, but i've spent up to 2 years of my life in buffalo/canada (all in the summer), so i am familiar with the culture.

some comments:

anyone that drives 70 mph on a freeway is going too slow. anyone that is actually doing the speed limit on the freeway is a hazard to other drivers (and the questionaire is correct, buffalo drivers are very slow)

i've lived through wide right, etc, but i don't care about them. i know what they are though.

i'm not exactly proud that the bills are the only football team in new york, but i always make it a point to point out that the new york giants (division rival) need to rename themselves the new jersey giants.

snow doesn't scare me. people around here are too busy to stop what they're doing for the weather, and only a sissy would take a day off when everyone else is working.

i call them subs and hoagies. it depends on where i am ordering them from. i can tell the difference between hoagies, subs, grinders, etc, by the way.

i know what the snowbelt and lake evvect are, but i don't talk about them since i don't have to.

I'm 42% Buffalonian! Not bad for a CANADIAN who lives 2.5 hours away from the city and visited the city for the first time 3 years ago and has loved it ever since, been here at least 15-20 times in my life. Just add a little accent to my voice, and you would have a Buffalonian living in Canada. Although the climate where I live isn't much different than Buffalo, except we actually get a bit more snow, and we have humidity here as well.

Yes it was, but it was nice. A day like that in late August is going to feel cold, I'll give you that.

But it's now already 80° and not even 11:00 yet. Ugh... Oh well, every season has it's price.
