83% DIXIE. It asked me if I had any Confederate ancestors. I actually had a great uncle that despised the North so much- he built a home out of Union soldiers tomb stones in Petersburg VA. which you can see here...

I've taken this before and come back both ways!

Guess that's what I get for living on the Mason-Dixon line now.

Who else has the military problem? Heard things so many different ways, you don't know what to say?

Subs/sandwiches and soda.

As long as you don't call them "subways" or the name of some gas station, I'll understand. And soda/pop/sodapop are fine- just don't call everything either "pepsi" or "coke."
