Where are y'all from?

Where are y'all from?  The New York Times has a fascinating feature online right now: a 25 question quiz about vocabulary and pronunciation.  Once you answer the questions, software generates a heat map showing where (in the U.S.) you're likely from.  The map at right is from my answers, and given that I grew up in central New Jersey I'd say it was pretty much right on.  Debbie answered the questions and got a map centered a bit away from where she grew up (in eastern Indiana – but there was a red blob right on Union County, where her home was.  Pretty darned good for just 25 self-answered questions!
