What Kind of American English Do You Speak?

I'm really curious how our british folks can master this, or if they simply feel insulted ;) (Hey folks, I seem to speak 5% non-american english, must be Denglisch... )

Well I got:

50% General American English
30% Yankee
20% Dixie
0% Midwestern
0% Upper Midwestern

Though I have to say that I found no British variants in 4 (we don't do it), 5 (fizzy drinks, maybe?), 10 (what the hell are they?), 13 (it's a shopping trolley) and 14 (trainers). Pesky Yanks ;)
