I matched to Buffalo &Rochester... go figure. Haha!

My machine must be missing something that allows the final result to display - rats. Fun to play anyway.

The cities I was most closely associated with were Buffalo and Rochester—both within a two-hour drive. But then I got to thinking maybe they were using cookies.

Maybe it's only East Coasters that can see the results.

I did mine with Firefox. Maybe you could try it if you used, say, Safari.

I thought I could link my map into here, but could only post it on facebook. No matter - my dialect is Buffalo, surprise, surprise!

I don't know which point specifically to our area, but I'm guessing pop, sub, and garage sale are key.

Lots of the questions had choices I had never heard of, or choices that clearly were from regions other than ours.

Hmmm. I took the test via firefox and couldn't see the results, either. Curses!

Damn! I was curious about others' results.

It said they were experiencing high volume (hey, just like the message I listened to at FedEx for 20 minutes today!) and that it would take some time for the map to load, so I waited, and it loaded. But yesterday, it didn't say or do anything.

I was most closely identified with Grand Rapids, Detroit, and Rochester. I showed little connection to anything below Pennsylvania to the south and ranging through the Midwest to the west coast.l My dad was from the Pittsburgh area and we made fun of him because he referred to us a yuns, pronounced pliers as plars, and choir as qwar -Holiday

Pittsburghers have their own unique phrases: "slippy" to describe icy-slick sidewalks, for one. A vacuum cleaner is a "sweeper."
