My results have me in Detroit, Grand Rapids or Toledo- so it turns out to be pretty good (I'm Detroit area).

What tipped the scales for me was my use of the word "pop" and "devil's night".

I guess since I'm from Quebec and cheer for the Bruins, Red Sox and Celtics I shouldn't be surprised that it gave me Boston along with Fort Lauderdale and Pembroke Pines ( ???? ).

Put me in either Winston-Salem or Greensboro NC, or Richmond VA. I live about 100 miles from all three.

Rockford, Detroit or Toledo so it's fairly close.

Baton Rouge, Jackson, and Shreveport. Pretty close since I have lived in Houston the last twenty years and Memphis the twenty before that.

It put me in Winston-Salem and Greensboro,NC, which I reckon is pretty damn accurate since I live 20 miles from both of them, and have been in this area for 40 of my 50 years on this Earth.

They have me in Fremont Calif or San Jose Calif.

I actually live in between those two cities. In fact they border the town I live in.

It had me for Boston, but I think it was just because we use the word "tonic" for soda and "rotary" for a traffic circle mostly
