American Habits That Are So American

Someone on AskReddit got a fun thread going about the various American habits that Americans didn't realize were so American. Sometimes one has no idea how absurd their habits are, because they've been so normalized by the culture and society they're living in. The outside perspective can be quite eye-opening.

No matter which state you call home, you probably use emojis when expressing your various feelings.

Well, Swiftkey, makers behind the popular alternative smartphone keyboard, has taken their billions of emojis used and mapped them according to which state uses which picture emotion most.

A lot of them are really pretty obvious.

For instance, Washington state uses the music and coffee emojis most.



And Arizona uses the cactus and cooling ice cream the most.



Others are just interesting collections of a specific state's most pressing emotional ...um... state.

Like, Illinois panics the most about drugs and spaghetti. Probably because of Chicago.



New York is the strongest, dances the most and uses the Statue of Liberty most, obvs.



And we know you were wondering which state uses the poo emoji most.

It's Vermont.



Which one do you use the most and does your state represent it?

Redditor atrubetskoy created this map that shows how much snow, on average, it takes to cancel school across the United States. Atrubetskoy also shared some other facts:

The lightest green says "any snow" but also includes merely the prediction of snow. Also, this is snow accumulation over 24 hours/overnight.

In much of the Midwest and Great Plains, school closing often depends more on wind chill and temperature than on snow accumulation ("cold days"). Thus, this map may be misleading in those areas.

Many jurisdictions in California and other western states have significantly varied snowfall, depending on elevation. This makes it difficult to find an "average" number, or often makes it misleading.

Urban areas like Chicago and New York have more resources to clear snow and often need more to cause closings.

To everyone saying "I grew up in so-and-so and we never closed school," policies have changed in the last 20 years to make closing a much more common occurrence. Just because schools stayed open back then doesn't mean they do these days.

Hawaii does get snow! Just… not where people live.

Data was taken from hundreds of various points from user responses and interpolated using NOAA's average annual snowfall days map. Any corrections/additions are welcome, just give a decently specific location.
