    Which region have you lived in the most, or identify with the most?

    Unfortunately there's a cap on 10 max polling options. This thread isn't meant to be US-centric, I just know the vast majority of people here are from the United States, those that aren't from the US are mostly from the other main English-speaking countries, and those from neither are mostly in Europe, with some exceptions.



    The map of regions of the US that this poll is going by:
    [​IMG]

    Pink - Puerto Rico, Guam, US Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands

    Red - the Virginia's, the Carolina's, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Texas

    Orange - Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana, Ohio, Iowa, the Dakota's, Nebraska, Kansas

    Green - California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana

    Blue - New England (Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Connecticut), New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, DC



    I'm born, raised, and currently living in Rhode Island (just spent 1 year in 2014-2015 in California/Oregon/Nevada). So that's New England, part of the Northeast (blue region) in that USA map.

    Born in North Carolina, lived here most of my life. My Dad was stationed in DC when he was active duty Coast Guard so I lived there for a few years and then in southern Virginia for a couple of years; otherwise, various places in North Carolina. I’ve been in Charlotte for 18 years.

    Canada. Lived all my life in Nova Scotia, except for that year I spent on Vancouver Island. Traveled through parts of Europe and half the continental US at various points.

    Maine is the state I call home. I also spent almost 20 years based in Arkansas, but that was never home. Too far south.

    "just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit"

    Only we don't say South Detroit. Ever. It's not a thing. There's downtown, which is the southern part of Detroit, and sits on the northern shore of the Detroit River. There's an East Side and a West Side. There's even a Southwest. But there's no South Detroit. If you went south of downtown, you'd be in the river, and on the other side is Canada.

    Follow the Detroit River south on the American side. That's Downriver, where I am. Only, it's more suburb than city.

    Why the **** isn't there a midwest? And Missouri is in the south? What?

    Since the poll doesn't allow multiple options, I'll have to go with Canada.



    *I have never actually lived in Canada.

    The map appears to roughly correspond to the Census Bureau's regions of the U.S... except Missouri.

    To be fair, Missouri to some would be considered one of the "Southern States". In fact a lot of the midwest would be due to the agriculture similarities and shared culture. But Texas is usually the cutoff and the rest are "midwest" or "plains". Kinda a hybrid place I guess. I wouldn't necessarily call it "Southern". Like Florida. It's in the South, but I don't think of it as the same.

    Just one of those places that are mixed with both.

    The very south of Missouri maybe. But the state in general is always considered the midwest.

    Yes because it's the Midwest. Only like the very south of Missouri is the south, and that's not where most the people live.

    Also, it was a union state. Albeit a slave one.

    I refuse to vote in this poll.

    Michigan. I lived in San Diego for a few years. I miss it, especially the weather.

    "Well we're back in Channel 4 Action News. What's the weather like today in San Diego, Bob?"

    "Nice. Back to you."
