There's a yank version of this too, my workmates insisted that I take it and apparently I'm either from NYC or Honolulu. Not much between the two I suppose.

No surprises here...
I am found out as a foreigner...
Here's proof ! :oops:

But... more surprising (if not shocking) is the following:

German friends of mine gave me a link in Facebook to have my origin analysed by my facial features.
(My facebook name is 'Auld Tymer', hence I am called 'Auld').

The answer is in German, but the message is clear: I am of AUSTRALIAN origin! :shock:
Accuracy of 98 % !

And believe me, Germans know what they are doing...
If they say I'm Australian, than I am Australian. :?

No wonder my English does not match British or Irish dialects...
But I do speak damn good Dutch.
For an Australian... :roll:

Haha - did the same to me, although I did spend the first 23 years of my life in Brum.
