How do you say stuff (American)?
This is really cool. Here are 122 maps of the colloquial difference in certain words or phrases throughout the US.

I've found that my state (LA) is usually an oddball.

Map here.

Neat! Looked to me like the northeast was the most idiosyncratic. There's some interesting regional patterns, for sure.

Ontario is mostly like the Midwest, but with more New England.

This is how we say it in PG County, Maryland ... bitch.




As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

That's what I was going to say.

My town has more variety than most of Ontario, because it has a ~50% immigrant population, but it is still more in-line with the Midwest US / New England.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.

Aren't you from the GTA? That's not really what most people would call a 'town'... Tongue

My part of the GTA is still called a town officially, despite having a population of around 190,000 and being part of a contiguous blob from Toronto to Newmarket.

The word "town" definitely seems inappropriate.

That is larger than any of the actual cities I've lived in.

You small town people always hicking up this forum. You should come to scarborough some time and see a real city. Tongue

I'm homophobic in the same way that I'm arachnophobic. I'm not scared of gay people but I'm going to scream if I find one in my bath.

I'm. Also homophobic in the same way I'm arachnophobic. I'm scared of spiders but I'd still fuck'em.

I've been to Scarborough. It's fair. Drinking Beverage

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
