Dialect heat map

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2013/12/20/sunday-review/dialect-quiz-map.html

Server load or the various plugins in my browser mean I don't see a "Share" link for my maps. My first result was near Richmond VA and couple of other nearby cities; my second one, with some different questions and a few different answers to old ones, put me in upstate NY, Maine, and Wisconsin, with "nearest cities" of Rochester, Providence, and Springfield MA. My heat maps for individual questions are all over the place, especially the first time I took it (second one overlapped with Chicago more often, but still didn't end up there.)

I grew up a solitary and bookish child to parents from Boston and LA/Berkeley, in gifted/magnet schools, then lived in intellectual California for 10 years, Indian grad school for 8, and now in Cambridge. I've deliberately adopted "you all/y'all" as useful and thanks to knowing the originator of http://www.popvssoda.com/ I frankly have no idea what word I grew up with, though I think I got "soft drink" from my parents. I suspect I just confuse the system.
