OH MY GOD AMERICA YOU ARE SO WEIRD, THE DEVIL IS BEATING HIS WIFE? LIQUID SUN? THE WOLF IS GIVING BIRTH?
Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?

Apparently, Australians sound most like people from Boston, Miami, and Pembroke Pines? But seriously wow there were some weird answers in there.


As a Mainer who is apparently extremely literal ("sunshower"), I also lost it on this question.

It thought I was from Boston or California, oddly enough. Apparently we're the only ones who call sneakers ... "sneakers."

Same here in Florida! Although when you think about it, it is kind of a weird name. Are the shoes for sneaking? Do they sneak around?

The devil beating his wife is a southern thing. My momma always taught me that.

I genuinely thought it was screwing with me with this question. But no, they were indeed serious XD

It thought I was from Florida even though I've never been there. :|

I actually live/grew up in Silicon Valley, CA.

Mine seemed to think that I was from like, Nebraska/Iowa/weirdness -- but the real state I live in (Indiana) was also deeply red-colored, so I guess it wasn't wholly inaccurate? xD I didn't know that not all questions are included (so you get a few different ones if you retake), and after a couple of retakes it noted Fort Wayne though that's not where I live in Indiana. xD

Oh well! It was super interesting. :B

Okay so I took mine again and I laughed a lot harder this time.
My most similar were Milwaukee and Madison in Wisconsin, and Aurora Illinois, which are either places I lived, been to, or are living near. Bahhahahahhahah how lols.

Least similar were Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and New Orleans.

I think I'm dying a little inside.

I got Spokane, Washington- Reno, Nevada- and Boise, Idaho. I used to live in Boise, I currently live in Colorado so it was pretty accurate...

I lost it with rubber-necking lmao.

However, I'm happy to say that when I was finished, they provided me with the correct answer. I'm from the New York area, so I guess I'm speaking correctly too :3 lol.
