    I'm not American so I was kind of curious to see what would happen if I took the survey. I'm English and have a weird accent that's a mixture of mostly northern English dialects.

    Anyway I got:

    New York
    Fremont
    Los Angeles

    I think I confused the survey.

    Took the test. I'm not American, and not even a native speaker. And apparently, I'm the first non-native here to take the test :D In reality my accent varies (depending on the words pronounced, my level of concentration and the phase of the moon) between being I have absolutely no idea what (when I'm not sleepy and thus able to concentrate on how I actually speak) and being a pretty thick Russian accent (when I'm sleepy and as a result barely articulate*). What I took as a standard for this test was my average pronunciaton when I don't bother with how I speak but at the same time don't fall into a thick barely comprehensible accent. So the results were...

    The most similar: Honolulu, Providence (had to google this one) and San Jose
    The least similar: New Orleans, Detroit, Corpus Christi (once more I was forced to resort to the almighty Google)

    *The key to a Russian accent is to constantly keep your lips almost closed

    I grew up in Australia and am a native speaker. Nothing to do with America, so I was curious to see the differences.

    The Dakotas and Michigan don't really agree with me. The west coast, the east, and southeast are much more similar. Of course, most of the answers gave nothing but deep blue spotted with light patches, so I don't think it's spread out that well.

    I have no connection to 'Murica however.

    It gave me Wichita, Tulsa, and Springfield (Missouri).

    No big surprises there. I live very close to one of the three.

    I got Boston, Pembroke Pines, and Miami.

    Which is weird, since not only am I not an American, but the two states I have lived in are nowhere near the east. o.o;

    I already took this same test in another forum, EGC, and I found it strange that my closest area was Wisconsin, although I never been there or know anyone from the state, Milwaukee & Madison where my closest places, the only one that did made a bit of sense was my 3rd closest city was Spokane. I'm really surprised my Spanish accent matches that of Wisconsin's area.... anyways here is my map:

    In the parentheses he said "my I key and my K key don't seem to be operational." Also his C key, apparently, as "autoorret" shows. ;P
