When I first moved to Nevada, I took this test and came out 57% redneck.

I just took it again today and it's dropped to 38%. Guess that's the Nevada influence. =)

Any Nevadans born and raised? I'm curious what y'all clock in at. Lemme know!

39% dixie, definiate Yankee. It was funny, most of my answers would place me in the northeast or great lakes, yet I was born and raised in Washington State

I scored a 45% barely yankee according to them,, I am native born and lived here basically all my life. Dad and mom were both born in Southern California and moved to Nevada before their teens. Test doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

I think that it was a yank that done made this test! There were a lot of answers missing!

41 % dixie,whatever that means. I was born and raised here, my Dad (RIP) was from the Ohio area and my Mom is from Colorado. Can't figure out how I got that kind of score. Very . . . Interesting.

Hey! Thanks for the responses. Holy cow MeanSteve, did you really get 100%? O_o

Anyhoo, this test has been popular on Digg lately.

They say it's accurate. According to Wikipedia, Nevada is supposed to be "Midland," which is what I got. Also according to Wikipedia, pronouncing "Cot" and "Caught" the same is a California invention... I find this interesting, because I can't think of how to pronounce them except for the same!
