I can't tell the difference. How do you pronounce "quart"? "Kwort"? If so, they're still practically similar to my ears,

Hmm, those are quite different to me. So "bar" and "bore" aren't that different to you? Or are those different sounds from "Mark" and "quart", in your opinion?

I wouldn't go that far. Most of the people around here are Mainahs, and forget theiah R's, whereas I am from New Hampshire, where we put extrer Rs where they don't belong, like on idear. (I like to think that all the Rs left off from Massholes and Mainahs migrate to NH). Ayuh.

The American obsession with heritage past 3 generations-or-so always amused me. It's like you're a country of genealogists. I barely know anything about my great-grandparents on my mother's side, and practically nothing about my grandparents on my father's. And it's not like we aren't immigrants or anything (we are).

"Bar" and "bore" are definitely entirely different. I don't feel the same about "qu/a/rt" and "qu/o/rt", though. Might have to do with the vowel being wedged between a "w" sound and a "r" sound, so the "wrong" one sound more like a sloppily pronounced version of the correct one (and the neighbouring consonants make it easy and plausible to be sloppy). On the other hand, it's your language, so it's entirely possible I'm not hearing all the sound nuances because we don't make as much of a distinction (or we do, and I do hear them, but my brain decides that it doesn't matter in this instance, and chooses to collapse them into a single equivalence class).

Second generation American on both sides :D

Paternal grandparents were born in Armagh, N. Ireland; Maternal grandparents were from Kracow, Poland. They whys and wherefors how my family got here are interesting (Easter Uprising on the paternal side, WWII (after being liberated from Aushwitz) on the other). Never really thought about it, but it is true how many Americans obsess over ethnicity and familial identity.

Pretty much. Not all the way back, though (eww). My spine and neck are also pretty bendy, so my head was pointing straight at the gap.

I don't think I've ever fallen asleep in a weird position like that.

I do occasionally lie with my body on my bed, a phone or handheld console on the floor, and my head and arms hanging off the bed in order to use them. Is that weird?

I'm of average height, but I have short legs, so that just seems strange to me. Also, I am apparently not very flexible, especially right now, since I threw my back out from coughing because of the stupid pneumonia. seriously, its like my whole years worth of karma is hitting me in the face this month.
