    Oh great. I speak ‘prison slang.’ Never been to prison.

    Many of the terms in that quiz have valid British slang meanings which are not mentioned. Many of them I’ve never heard of… Culturally biased. :)

    I tried to take the test and couldn’t pick any of the meanings for a lot of the words. Honestly, I don’t use very much slang: I’m the son of an English professor.

    Well, I scored high in Aussie, British, and Canadian … which I guess works as I am a kiwi … of course, I picked the closest definitions as often they didn’t have my specific one …

    It’s no secret my mad math skills barely got me out of high school, but doesn’t this mean you’re like 250% slang? How exactly does that work?

    wierd quiz… I had only heard of a few of the phrases, but wound up scoring 75% New England… not so close to home. I am compelled to go through all these surveys and quizes, but usually I focus on where they’re wrong, or try to pick out the bias/assumptions.

    Amazing. I guessed at at least half the questions, and yet they pegged me at 75%. I’m a New Englander, born and bred.

    Now how bout we all go out and get some tonic??

    The highest score I got was 75% Canadian slang. Not surprising, really, when you consider where I grew up.

    Hmm…scored 75% prison slang, but the only ones I’ve ever used are Grinder (for coffee, though I’ve seen numerous people grind on the dance floor), and dope (something I am, though it’s also something a few friends of mine smoke). For the rest…WTF?
