My 'score' was a 79....whatever that means. i grew up poor, redneck, rural, work with your hands, and served in the military.

I grew up in Florida there's a LOT of fishing going on down there, especially sportfishing. Texas may not have all that much water but you better believe fishing is popular here too.

Pick up trucks are also very popular especially in the South but really, all over the country in general. They're extremely useful especially for hauling things. I'd like a pick up truck someday.
I live in LA, where both fishing and pickup trucks aren't very common, but even outside the city, more than half of people don't fish and don't own a pickup truck.

I dunno much about fishing in the ocean in LA but at the same time, Southern California doesn't have the abundance of freshwater that states further east do. Its also about lifestyle. In Florida, even big city people are more likely to fish as its popular recreation there, but in California its just as big of a part of the lifestyle.

I can't tell you how many of my parent's friends homes back in Florida had stuffed marlins and barracudas on the wall! Fishing is a big part of recreation plus industry on the east coast in general, especially in states like Maryland.

I got 25 which it describes as "a second-generation (or more) upper-middle-class person who has made a point of getting out a lot."

Fairly accurate. I don't watch a lot of mainstream tv but I sure keep my fridge full of domestic beer lol.

I scored 63.


The Branson question made me laugh. I guess I'm 100% middle America because a branch of my family actually owns a theater in Branson and they perform country and bluegrass music every night. I've been to Branson dozens of times because of them.

Saw some conversion about "what middle America is?" and it made me think of a pretty interesting quiz I took last week. Examines how big of a bubble you live in and takes a guess of what your background is. Obviously not an exact science, but interesting none the less.

I got a 24. I was on the lower end of the average and appear to be more disconnected to middle America than most who took the quiz. So do you think this is accurate? Do you think you are average?

Edit: I butchered the title. Classic
(11) 1180: A first-generation upper-middle-class person with middle-class parents. Typical: 33.

I do not detest middle America like so many others. Being the son of immigrants, I was expecting a little higher on that score, but alas 11 it is. I guess that is a bit of a bubble.

Interesting quiz, thanks for sharing. You started this thread over a year ago and it's still getting replies.

FWIW, I scored a 25. I spent my first year after college in Griffith Indiana as a process control engineer at a steel mill. I think that "de-bubblified" me a bit.
