Interesting, says I talk like someone from either Salt Lake City, Utah (hey what do you know) or from California. Which I am insulted

Tagged me for the lower peninsula of Michigan, with Detroit, Grand Rapids, and Toledo, of all places. This seems to only go by pronunciation, with no thought of accent. I don't know how to explain the difference, but people in the lower and upper say these words the same way, but with a bit different "accent". But it pretty much nailed me.

Took it a second time with different questions, and now it's saying Jackson, Mississippi; Montgomery, Alabama; and Columbus, Georgia.

My mom took it, and only New Jersey and Philadelphia were red. lol.
