Where do you think you're from?

So this little quiz is rather cool if you ask me, it takes from the questions you answer to where your dialect if from. Suprisingly it is very accurate, please post your results by screen shoting it so we can see where it is you are from. Sadly it is for the Americans we have on this board, but hey those outside the United States take it too. See where it says you are from! Haha!

What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining? In England we call this Summer.

But apparently overall either New York, Jersey City or Honolulu. This is super cool :D

I like stuff like this! <3 I grew up in upstate NY, and I see a dark red spot right around the right place, so yes this is pretty accurate for meee. Although apparently I would fit in California too, lol. I like that they included the "soda vs pop" thing because there is a big disparity across the US as to what you call your soft drinks. ;)

I took this a while ago, and I got Jersey City, New York City, and Buffalo, NY. Honestly, though, I think being on the Internet has skewed my results a fair amount though -- couldn't remember what we called "pill bugs" (still can't) and answered incorrectly for my area. >_> Then again, the most defining thing for me and my area is calling the night before Halloween "mischief night" -- apparently that's pretty exclusive to NYC and Northern NJ...

The three most likely cities were all smack dab in the middle of South Florida, so it's quite correct on that assumption. There's also a lot of red around New York and adjacent states, which isn't too surprising, since my parents are from there. :p

Apparently I am so very British that my dialect was not at all recognised for many of the questions. Yet it turns out that I am most similar to Jackson, Richmond and Atlanta. While my least similar are Des Moines, Detroit and Pittsburgh.

LA, Glendale, San Francisco, apparently!
Least similar are Amarillo, Shreveport and Little Rock (which I know is in Arkansas?)

I am also British xD We do not have drive-thru booze.
