We have drive thru liquor stores were I come from. We just call them "drive thru liquor stores". :) 

I've never heard of a government run liquor store. I wonder how that compares to civilian owned one here in the states. (I'm assuming you aren't from the US, because of the "u" in favorably. :) ) 

I believe New Hampshire has government run liquor stores. We used to drive up to Maine, passing through NH briefly, and right off I95 was the biggest liquor store I have ever seen. All sorts of everything in there.

Isn't the beltway the big road that goes around the perimeter of DC proper?

Yes.  I know it well.

I call the grassy area between the sidewalk and the street the beltway.

@psycho-hope, My car has a boot and a bonnet, too, but then she's a MINI Cooper and that's how things roll with MINIs.  We honor their British heritage with the terminology.  My bonnet latch is on the right hand side of the car although the steering wheel is not.

So did anybody watch the new Pecan and Pris easter video? I didn't because I have a feeling it's nothing but Catholic hating. From the comments apparently they only celebrate Easter on Good FRiday.

Where are you seeing this? Nothing on their Youtube, Instagram, or blog.

Cancel the Duggars had a link to a video from the Umbrella Army

Oh, that's the one from last year. Nothing anti-Catholic about it, but no redeeming qualities, either.

My family is mostly in Kansas and Nebraska, and we call them tennis shoes.

Former Nebraskan, used tennis shoes but sneakers wasn't unheard of as well.

Never heard of beltway used, then again I liven in a fairly rural area growing up. Few stop lights, fewer medians and no beltways.

oooo I love MINI's tho cant justify the cost of one :(  I hear ya I drove a bit when I was over, I went from a car the size of a fiat 500 to a f150 and sitting on the opposite side of the car and driving an automatic....i normally drive a manual, lets just call it interesting....

My MINI was used so I paid less for it. but the new ones are pricey.  Mine's about 12 years old now, but still has plenty of life left.

Just took that quiz... not surprised it couldn't really pin me down since I grew up in Nebraska to non-Nebraskan parents and have lived in CA for over 20 years (it got me generally as upper midwest/ west so reasonably correct).  The one crazy thing was that one of the 3 'most likely' cities was Rockford IL.. and I've never lived there but my parents did for a few years after I grew up.

i just took the test, and it pegged me for Fresno CA, Salt Lake City, and Rochester NY.  Rochester is very close to where i live now, but i probably confused it a little since i grew up in NY, MA, ME, VT, and a short stint in central CA (near Fresno, and i've never lived in UT).  i recognized a few answers as being very common to western NY, but i didn't select them because they're not what i'm accustomed to using.  still very interesting.

I also got Fresno and SLC, but also got Modesto, CA, which is still about 75 miles from where I live (I'm in the Bay Area proper, not the valley).

Took the test and all my top three places were very close each other in the Los Angeles area. In my case it only shows the power of tv and movies. English isn't my first language and like pretty much every other teen around here in the 90s I grew up watching US (probably Hollywood) made tv shows and movies. All the shows are subtitled here so no dubbing. Oh, the original Beverly Hills 90210 :56247951a4b60_32(2):

I'm not a drinker, just use the stuff for cooking, and when I stop at one of the NH liquor stores, I am just overwhelmed.

It finally worked for me too. It guessed Yonkers and NYC form me. I'm in Ireland, so they are as physically close as possible I suppose :)

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
