The Ultimate “Just How American Are You?” Quiz

I was driving on the wrong (i.e. correct) side of the road like it was nothing, and my spatial awareness had finally adjusted to the point someone could ride in the passenger seat without occasionally casually saying “YOU’RE TOO FAR RIGHT.”

But then I saw a deer up ahead. I cautiously slowed down. The deer and I met eye to eye. The deer said to me in that stare “you’ve just unlocked the next level of being American”, and sauntered off the road.

Perhaps you’ve had your own similar moment of becoming American in some small or large way. I hope it didn’t involve a deer as deer encounters are often extremely dangerous on the road. But, it was thanks to that deer that this quiz was born.

Behold, the ultimate “Just How American Are You?” Quiz, for Aussies in the US!

What is your current accent status?

Have you driven in America?

What is your current coffee drinking status?

When you go back to Australia, what happens?

In Sports, what teams do you barrack for?

Do you watch the Superbowl?

How would you describe your experience with the American medical system? (which is no joking matter, but if you need encouragement to get / understand your medical insurance, consider this your reminder!)
