Thought a few of you might find this interesting. I could not get through it, I got bored within 25 seconds trying to figure out my answers!

Pretty neat. They have me on the Eastern Seaboard somewhere between Maine and North Carolina.

I can't believe that anyone can still identify people as Yankee's, there is no one alive that fought the civil war so who cares. I have never heard of anyone referred to as a Yankee until I read it in this forum.....geez how long does it take to get over it?

I got all the way to the end and I lost connection to the site!

Relax Russ. I don't know why you let them get to you on this topic.

You sound like a yankee.

some places have a little more culture and history than others.

The test got me pretty damn close.

Next thing you know they'll be naming a baseball team after this derogatory term.

I really don't see it as any different than using the words hillbilly, redneck, hick, etc.

Kinda close but not really, born in Hawaii, lived in Quantico till 2nd grade and then good ol NC since. But said my locations where Kentucky and Richmond Va so kind of close but not. Parents are from Maryland so would explain why I use certain words that took it north.

That's what I put on the opening thread, but that was not completely honest. I got bored trying to figure out what phrases I actually used way back when!!!

Doesnt matter where the M/D line is, hillbillies, rednecks, and hicks live in rural America, not the suburbs or city.

I took the quiz and it said Boston, Providence, Worcester with a very tight red blot. I am just south of Boston. I figured it was because I use the term Rotary so I tried again. That question did not come up, but it still gave me Boston, Providence, Worcester just not as distinct with some red up into NH and ME. This time it said Sneakers was the most telling. Fun

Interesting. It was dead on for where I've spent most of my adult life, but nowhere near where I grew up. I guess that means that your dialect changes based on where you live. I will never, however, call Interstate 5 "The 5" or San Francisco "The City" I just refuse.
