The soda vs pop war will always see me as the mercenary tonic faction offering my skills up to the highest bidder.

15/20 and I got one from a neighboring state wrong.  "Brick" is cold in Mass?  Really?  Also, any guess from one of the big square states should be "close enough."  It's not like there's a bit of difference between them.

Y'all just ain't from the right part of the state. I wouldn't say it's the most common, but it's definitely used.

We use it around here in the crotch of NY, MA, and VT.

I never really associated it with the South but I guess it'd make sense around Boone. That was my Southern cousin's first experience of Northern life. Saw his first snowfall at age 24 and thought it was amazing. Only took him a month and a half to hate it. "Oh my God, shoveling SUCKS!".

Used, but not unique or original too.

Yes, vernacular travels, but conceptually, is a new England concept

Also: as dubious as this quiz is sometimes, I can confirm that one. We were using "brick" to mean "cold" when I was in high school in the mid to late 90s.

I couldn't attest to that one way or the other. I know the most common thing to call these people is "floridiots" .

Same, and we used to play padiddle, but I never lived anywhere close to Iowa. This quiz is all over the place.

It didn't work for me. There was a 'hillbilly' next to a rounded orange rectangle, a round steel blue spot with 'o pts' in it & a double right facing arrow in a round turquoise spot, There is a 'sources' area in the lower right under the 'Play NJ' logo. Anybody else have a problem?

Took a moment to load, and progress beyond that.  I have a bunch of noscript/adblocker stuff happening on my browser.  I only know enough about web pages to be dangerous.

A granola in Colorado is any general hippie type and is not restricted to folks from Boulder specifically.  Many granolas are found in Boulder, but not all people in Boulder are granolas.

I generally do not have patience to sit & wait. But the little 'doo hickey' wasn't turning around & around & around, so I figured the site just doesn't like me?
