What American Accent Do You Have?

I found this meme on someone else's LJ, stole it, and now I'm putting it up on here. It's a quiz that asks you a series of questions about how you pronounce certain words in comparison to other words, and gives you your American accent as a result.

The person whose LJ I stole it from is British, so I can't say if they got an 'accurate' accent. But it actually pinpointed my accent down pretty well (Western), and even gives a list of other options about where you might be from if you're not from the West.

So, other Americans - if you take this quiz, how accurate is it in telling you your accent?

And, not-Yanks - if you take this quiz, what do you get? In listening to that American accent, would you say it's somewhat close to your own?

Mostly just for kicks and giggles, but I thought this might be interesting to see the effect of. :)
