Heck yeah bubblers! I had that word practically beaten out of me when I went to school in New York, sadly, but I'll never completely stop using it.

I'll never understand why people are fascinated by the (old and outdated) Boston accent- a good Rhode Island accent is SO much weirder.

No one upstate speaks true to the stereotypical NY form! They're so backwards they might say bubbler ;)

I would even argue heavily there's a difference between the way I speak easy of the city and city natives, or Staten Island natives, etc. I don't sound entiry retarded. :D

Pittsburgh/Detroit. It got it on the former.

After going through some of those questions, it's evident that some people speak really freaking weird...

I'm from the Deep South (Coastal Georgia) but not the cities of ... Columbus, Montgomery and Mobile. The words service road and y'all apparently were the chief indicators for those areas. :roll:

Yes I did know it under the name "Devil's Night"! So imagine my English like a gal from Detroit with a German accent. Scary, huh? :lol:

I had the answers of NYC, Yonkers and Newark. Correct.

Pittsburgh and Louisville were the opposite. I have been to those cities and they are also correct!

Agree regarding the drive through liquor store!

I haven't taken the quiz yet, but if one of the questions asks what "Devil's Night" is, anyone who ever saw "The Crow" knows the answer to that.

Now I'm pretty sure I've seen at least one drive through... 'beverage barn", that had at least beer. And, elsewhere, a real drive through liquor store that did business from a window. A long time ago on the latter.

If anywhere needs a drive-thru liquor store, it the tri-state NYC area.

From your lips, etc. etc.

The closest we have is Diary Barn. And that's only good for milk and coffee.

There are liquor stores every two blocks in most of the city. Wine only for me!

My quiz nailed it on the head. The red parts were northern ohio and Illinois. And parts of Texas, where I lived for the first 13 years of my life. We have a lot of drive through liquor stores around here, they're shaped like open barns. Pretty cool stuff :)

As a matter of fact, I have to go there tomorrow to pick up a bottle of Devil's Cut and some vodka (most likely Absolut) to take over my best friend's house. We party like every other weekend, lol. They're called liquor barns or beverage barns and they're freakin awesome.

Since I grew up only an hour's drive from Spokane, this quiz was pretty accurate.

It sort of screwed up on me. I have never been to Reno, Nev, or Scottsdale or Chandler/Gilbert, AZ. I was in Tuscon for a couple of weeks, once, though.

Born in Liverpool, England. Dad was from Boston, Mom was a farm girl from Smarden, Kent, England. I have lived in Fla, Ga, S Carolina, New Haven, Ct, Okinawa, Japan, Syracuse and Watertown, NY, Tampa, New Haven again, Los Angeles, Tampa till now. And a trip through Ga, Tenn, Ken, and Ohio with a carnival.

It asks what YOU call the night before Halloween. I know Devil's Night from having friends in Detroit and seeing that movie. However, since I don't call it Devil's Night, I just answered what I would call it, nothing.
