QUIZ: Can We Guess Your Home State, Based Only On Your Slang?

For a country as large as the United States, its no real shock that it's filled with many dialects, but it never fails to surprise me when I hear a completely foreign term for any common object. My grandpa lived 30 minutes south of me, yet he somehow had hundreds of terms for "those Greeks" that I have never heard anywhere else. 

After months of research, I've been able to narrow down a list of the most unique of geographical slang, and am confident that after only 10 questions, this quiz will pinpoint your home state. 

All you need is a pen and paper to score your answers, and the scoresheet below to see if the quiz did it's job.
