Yes, it seems odd that I got 0% Midwestern given that I grew up in Kansas for 18 years.

Here's one for y'all: when you refer to an interstate or other major highway, what do you call it?
a) Interstate 10
b) I-10
c) The 10
d) other

It may be only a southern California thing, but most folks around here say "The 10".

No, you have more, which would explain your inability to read.
