    Obviously he's never been anywhere in the middle. With the exception of Orlando/Lake Buena Vista, that place doesn't count.

    I've been all over the state, the northern end and the keys are great, it's the middle that scares the **** out of me.
    One good thing I've heard about Orlando is that every day you spend there takes three off your stay in Purgatory.

    {edit, by middle I mean the Orlando/Lake Buena Vista areas**

    We said 'creek.' When I lived in Peoria, they pronounced it 'crick.'

    Growing up in a small rural town in Colorado I heard it both ways, but mostly crick.
    When I moved to Denver it was mostly creak.

    SF Bay Area (East Bay) native here. In the urban and suburban areas, it's universally "creek" except for the cowboy wannabes. Out in the country among the long-time cattle and sheep ranchers, you're pretty likely to hear "crick," although not 100%. Among the newer country denizens, mostly, but not all, "creek."

    Amazingly enough, thoughy, everyone pronounces "@$$hole" the same way.

    I grew up in SE Michigan and called it a creek, but I did hear crick a lot. My dad thought that was vulgar. We also pronounced leisure so it rhymed with seizure.
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."
