Stole this from Chas

I've always been told I don't have much of an accent so I guess this makes sense. People always give me this look when I tell them I grew up in Alabama like "You grew up there and you talk like that?" I guess I don't notice, but that's what I hear.

Jeff, this is one you need to take - just curious to see how you score.

There were a few questions that I could see myself flip flopping on so I'm not sure how on the mark this is.

Well, I've never heard you speak but seeing as you're moving to Fresno I can see the 10 percent dixie and the upper midwestern.

Are you implying that I would have a different accent than you? We will just have to see...

No, I don't think you have a southern accent at all. I figured you'd be mostly Minnesota speak since you talk like most of those people do.
