Other assorted folks outside of the US might enjoy learning where your vocalizations would be most common in this big melting pot of a country.

How Y’all, Youse and You Guys Talk
What does the way you speak say about where you’re from? Answer all the questions below to see your personal dialect map.
Apparently, on my first pass through the quiz, I'm from the south east, somewhere near Richmond. Or Birmingham. Or Augusta.

One out of three ain't bad for an online quiz, though.

'Tractor-trailer' and 'y'all' helped them peg me closest.


My second time through gave a more accurate result, based on a couple of different questions. Atlanta was the outlier thanks to the pajama question.

 

Pretty well got me pegged. Not sure they have questions that would be understandable for everyone in order to narrow it down to the MD eastern shore.

Southern Ontario comes up as Buffalo. I hate the Buffalo accent.

Seattle and Tacoma, which is as close to America as I can get. Glad it wasn't Fargo, ND though!

I guess it came close, being a Navy brat who than has lived all over the US. I spent first 22 years on the west coast than a few years in Texas and Georgia. Then the last 17 west of Boston.

Interested to see how I fare. Like Spoo, I'm New York born and bred. But I spent many formative years in Cali and england, and am married to a Massachusets'n. Let's see if that changes things.

Edit: pretty damn close. It evenly split me between New York city, Yonkers (which is only 10 miles from my home town) and Providence. And providence was probably only because I use rotary for traffic circles, which I picked up from my wife. It also shoed some cali influence, but not much.

That test pegged me as philly. Pretty interesting actually. When I moved from India at age 11, I moved to that area till I graduated from college. I went to college in CT and now live in the Boston area, so I was shocked to see that it was mid-atlantic leaning isntead of north east leaning!

The quiz has my accent from Louisville, Lexington, and Atlanta. Lived in Louisville for 20 years.

Picked these up for next year...not a high-end brand or anything but NWOT and free shipping so why not...

  

 

 

Also got a holiday bonus from work, which can't be beat!

At best, it showed me where other people speak similar to me (Denver CO, Wichita KS and Albuquerque NM), but I've never lived anywhere near those cities or states.

Very cool. Lived in NY/NJ for the most of my life but also spent lots of time in Michigan and SoCal.

Brian, the blue sweater is the Bobby Jones you traded me. it gets worn.....often.:fistbump:

shirt is the same cheap one that gets compliments everytime it's in a fit.

 

the A.P.C is  heading out to you after the holidays.  i felt like sending you something really special, because i am so happy with the Paul Smith you sent on good faith. the other jacket was just to size check. lol. enjoy them both. always on the lookout for the smaller sizes, and will continue to get you the good stuff.

  

-note. had mixed experiences on the thread this past year. but trading and talking with the good guys has been a pleasure.

 

also, the Big E's are real small. like a 29"w -31"L

 so smaller guys, pm if you want them.

:fistbump:

 

Glad you're getting a lot of good wear out of it! It was one I had pulled out of the bunch to keep myself but never wore.

 

Always got you in mind for Paul Smith and stuff slightly larger then fits me.  Happy Holidays

There is no bigger fan of Styx than myself--when I was 14, I stood in large pool of vomit for 90 minutes because it was close to the stage and was the only chance I had to get up close, and I liked it. Styx didn't need Yoko Ono to break up the band, they had Dennis DeYoung, and he did it all by himself with devastating effect. You can take the biggest asshole who ever posted on this thread, whoever that might be, and he wouldn't hold a candle to the asshole that is Dennis DeYoung. Dennis DeYoung is to assholes what vicuna is to fabrics, a class unto himself, the smelliest turd in a mountain of shit. And his "music" is even worse. Perhaps there is a hidden message that makes sense when you play a Dennis DeYoung record backwards at 78, because there sure as hell isn't anything there when you play one at 33.

Even if I liked Dennis DeYoung--and I really, really don't--I would never publicly admit it. I thought I would retch when Eazy confessed to liking Billy Ocean, who is Frank Zappa, Roky Erickson, Miles Davis, Johnny Cash, John Coltrane and David Bowie all rolled into one compared with Dennis DeYoung.

I'm constantly amazed at the crappy music that people here who otherwise have such impeccable taste think is good. Not long ago, IIRC, someone said they like the Ray Conniff Singers. Seriously, WTF. I'm leaving now to blast some Spinal Tap in the car--I have some last-minute shopping to do.
