That was really really cool! Got me perfectly in the Baltimore/DC area, also threw in Richmond but that's pretty far away from me. My distinct answers were pronouncing "cot" and "caught" differently and calling a sale of unwanted junk a yardsale.

 

It looks like they don't ask the same questions (I never got asked any questions that would have a possible answer of "sneakers").

Strong south Louisiana through the SEC states and into Virginia.

 

I grew up  in New Orleans and live in Richmond, VA, the Capital of the Confederacy.

 

Interesting test. I did notice some specific jargon for specific parts of the country.

Had me in my original home area, Michigan.  Some 50 years ago I lived in Kentucky for 2 years and acquired some of the local colloquialisms.  Once I got back into an urban setting my vocabulary and accent returned.

Wow pegged me perfectly with Buffalo and Rochester which I live smack dab between both. Rochester is 45 min east and Buffalo is 45min west. It also said Grand Rapids must be they say "pop" instead of soda and have thru-ways the two answers that probably gave away instantly where I live.

Had me for exactly me same, even though I said soda and expressways.   Me thinks the site picks up on your IP address or something and traces the location of your connection.

Snook already proved it's not the IP. He's in FL and born and raised in MI
