My Yankee Parents Would Be Ashamed

Via Pharyngula I came across this "are you a yankee or a rebel" quiz. It bases the outcome on how one describes certain entities and pronounces certain words. I came out 51% Dixie, which seems almost exactly right since I live in Baltimore. What's odd is that my folks are both noreastern yankees of an extreme variety(my mother makes John Kerry sound like a hick), and I spent more time in California than anywhere else. My only explanation is that I went to elementary school in inner-city Detroit. I assume the age range at which people tend to pick up their standard locutions is the same as the one when people attend elementary school.
