Cool, on the interactive map, they even include Canada! Canada is, of course, staunchly "pop" from coast to coast to coast. Soda means soda water and coke means Coke (or..uh..you know), and that's how it's supposed to be.

I'm from Upstate NY, and this is one of the most annoying arguments I've ever encountered. I went to a school where a lot of people usually said "soda", but there was also a good amount of those who call it "pop" like I do. Anyway, you think about how your country is at war, and how there's so many other things to argue about, but at my school the main argument was "pop or soda?".

The results are pretty surprising on the chart, though.

Finally, proof that I'm not crazy! In school, other students would make fun of me when I asked for a coke, and then said "make it a sprite". They didn't believe that we always called everything "Coke" in my hometown, they just figured that too many late nights had decomposed important parts of my brain ;)
