    Funny, I speak 45% Yankee, 45% American. Go figure, seeing I’ve lived in CT or MA my whole damn life. I’m a sucker for these surveys.

    My percentages are exactly the same as yours. Uncanny unless you consider we lived with ten miles or so of each other for the first 25 years or so of our lives. Maybe that has something to do with it.
