One of the categories of people that crack me up, just like they did Vonnegut, are those that have an unhealthy obsession with the coincidence of where they live. Or were born.
You know the type....they are endlessly fascinated with being from New York, Chi-town, LA or The Bay Area. I imagine you non-USians have your London, Sydney, Toronto, Stockholm and whatnot snobbery. Don't even get me started about Paris. You wouldn't think so, the weather being so shitty and all, but people in the US cities of Seattle and Portland are some of the worst.
They really seem to think it makes them better, smarter, hipper, cooler and just plain more important than other folks. Like we'd be just endlessly fascinated by those daredevils who *wash their windows*! Amazing!
Dudea, get real.
