19. What's a drive through liquor store called?
Answer: Brew Thru
Very common in Virginia and North Carolina.
That's bull. There are no drive-though liquor stores in NC. That's a Texas thing, mostly. All liquor stores in NC are owned by the state, and are walk-in.

Brew Thru's don't sell liquor, they sell beer and wine along with other stuff. He was just off on what he called it.

That's slightly more than what I got, and yes, I have Confederate ancestors in both sides.

I should be a lot higher than that, though!

51% Dixie. That surprised me somewhat, until I realized it was based on grammatical inflections and not attitudes.

i don't think its possible to get more than 33% yankee.

EDIT: got down to 29%, the re-computed my score without changing any answers a few times and was 100% confederate. This test is broken.
