    People in NY DO NOT pronounce cot and caught the same way. Don't know where that notion comes from.

    Raised in NY my whole life, but went to a liberal arts college. Go figure.

    Last time someone asked me for a pop, I punched 'em.
    (That's a pop where I come from, as for the other definition, I am certainly not giving away my father).
    I came out 58 % Dixie.

    I've lived in New York State nearly all of my life, with the exception of a year in Kentucky, a year in Ohio, and the past 4 in PA.

    David, my first 7 years were in the Bronx and the next 11 on the the Island. I had about 20 years in Buffalo. Buffalo & NYC/LI are so incredibly different, culturally. I grew up with heroes (for hot) ans submarine sandwiches (for cold). In WNY, they are called subs. It was soda where I grew up and pop in WNY. Cawfee & Flawrida as a kid and coffee & Florida in WNY. It was orange growing up and Awrange in Buffalo. Then there's that 'R' pronunciation or lack thereof...

    LOL Alvin
    I, along with 20,000,000 other Aussies all say Aunt that way, never had the poms call us "posh" before though.

    You haven't explained the toilet paper thing though?

    I believe the toilet paper thing is just a simple prank, along with the lines of spray paint, toothpaste, chalk, eggs, tomatoes, etc... Just basic vandalism.

    50% Barely into the Yankee category. which is interesting because i've had numerous people tell me i don't have an accent ("you're from long island? wow, you don't sound like it." which always leads me to wonder what they THINK i should sound like!!!). and here i land right in the middle!

    lol except i think they need to have their own test just for new york accents which don't fall under either category... the Long Island, the Brookyln, the Western New York...
    "Seeds? Oh yeah... sometimes I forget they grow from those. I feel like they should hatch or something."

    53% (Dixie). Barely into the Dixie category.
    eh. most of my answers were "common throughout the US" so I don't see how they could say that
