Mike Erickson: 25-year-old transportation engineer in Hamilton, NJ. What you're most likely to find here: little quips about my personal life, architecture, photography, music, videos, dogs, science and/or video games.
I just took this really thorough Regional Dialect quiz that’s been going around, but I took the 140-question version and it took me about an hour to do because it’s been loading real slow (I don’t think the server hosting it can handle all the traffic).  Apparently I’m a Jersey boy and wouldn’t fit in too well much else in the country except around Miami.
Most similar cities:

Newark, NJ- 59.3
Yonkers, NY- 58.9

Least similar cities:
Des Moines, IA- 47.9
Sioux Falls, SD- 47.9
Minneapolis, MN- 48.3
Cedar Rapids, IA- 48.4
Green Bay, WI- 48.5
You can take the quiz yourself here, but it may take a lot of reloading to get in.
