You know you're from Belfast when...You know at least one person called Mackers or Smickers
You've been offered five lighters for £1
You can ask police officers if they have any craic and not get arrested.
Can say you are going for a poke and not get funny looks
You know what a 'fleg' is
Your friends still call you by your childhood nickname
You remember when skipping school was 'doing the beak'
You're never cold but sometimes Baltic
The sight of 12-year-olds smoking is normal
You know what a 'barrack buster' is and at one time this was your favourite carry-out
You have used the phrase "will you see me / my mate"
The smell of slurry in the country makes you gag
You have been to Dempsey's for a 16th or 18th birthday party
Jim McDonald from Coronation Street and Eamonn Holmes embarrass you
You've had a ginger-haired friend called 'Fanta Pants'
Your granny had a framed picture of the Pope or the Queen in the living
room but never both
Anyone who doesn't have a number one back and sides haircut is a hippy
You are a half decent pool player and know your way around a snooker table
You know what the words 'space-cadet' and 'rocket' really mean
You think that if you can't see the Harland and Wolff cranes from your bedroom window you are a culchie
You know what real rain is like
You're passionate about an English or Scottish football team
You have owned a pair of Nike Air Max 'gutties' at some stage
You have purchased a single cigarette a some stage of your life.
You frequented a country park or waste ground each weekend to drink alcohol
You are 27-years-old, married with two kids, a dog and have a mortgage of your own. When you are home for Christmas and your parents are away for a couple of days you still think: 'Sweet, free house!'
You know what a 'steeko' or 'spide' is and have a tendency to turn into one after drinking a few pints. "Here's me wha?".
