On that dialect survey I generally get Detroit (correct) and a scattering of other places in the Midwest and/or Far West. This short version isn't as good, I think. Plus they try to pinpoint cities and, as we've seen here, aren't necessarily that great at it. Though in my case I think part of the problem is that I am inconsistent in usage and pronunciation. It is difficult to access what my default dialect/accent is, to the extent that I actually have one.
I got Oklahoma City, OK, Amarillo, TX, and Irving, TX. Not surprised at all. I spent 18 years in Oklahoma City and the last 6 in Texas.

We refer to Interstate 64 as "40" or "Highway 40". It is US Highway 40, and got an Interstate designation only a few decades ago, and people her edon't like changes, so it still gets called "40". It REALLY throws people from out of town off.
Hunting has been part of our society since the first Europeans came over and shot buffalo and Native Americans and whatnot.

Seems unnecessary to say the "I". You should reconsider your stance Tommy. Only an asshole would need the I in order understand which road is being discussed.
When the Emergency Broadcast System interrupted our DVR last week to warn us about pending flash-floods, the Four Hundred and Five freeway was mentioned as well as the Two Hundred and Ten, One Hundred and Thirty Four, and One Hundred and One freeways.
Santa Rosa is where all the Pliny is made.
I got the same locations, unit. I guess the OC accent puts us in the same places.
New song out I guess: RSPECT by A Franklin .... cr****

Interchangeable, no, but that isn't what any of this is about.
I have heard plenty of people refer to the any part of the digestive system as the stomach. Especially using "stomach ache" when the issue is in the intestines.
Because I said a rubber soled shoe is a sneaker they put me in Yonkers...
What's wrong with Yonkers?
Probably because it thinks I'm from Stockton, Modesto, or Reno, Nevada....
Certain songs they get so scratched into our souls
