    I'm from Australia and got Fort Lauderdale, Pembroke Pines and Hialeah. I've never heard of any of those places :grin:

    This is scary accurate. Even though I currently live in Florida, I grew up about a half hour north of Madison. Goes to show you can take the girl out of Wisconsin, but you can't take the Wisconsin out of the girl lol

    I got most similar to Boston, Ft. Lauderdale, and Pembroke Pines? Boston isn't too surprising I guess, given that I'm from southern Ontario. But that just makes Florida seem even weirder.

    It guessed I was from Stockton/Santa Rosa/Modesto (i.e. northern California). I'm from northern Nevada. I don't think there's much difference between the two, dialect-wise. I went to college in northern California and I heard no difference between the way people spoke there and the way people talk in Reno. So that's pretty accurate :slight_smile:

    That was a lot more accurate than I was expecting! It picked the exact city I am from and other cities I have spent a good deal of time in. I don't live there anymore either.

    I got Minneapolis/st Paul (where I live) Rochester and Springfield. (Given that my dad is from Pennsylvania and I've picked up some of his dialect this kinda makes sense)
