As a Midwestern boy living in rural NC, I laughed the first time I heard "might could." We use what grew up with, just like how we eat. I like southern food but cannot have everything fried. Yet, I can't find a good pizza to save my life! Subject to debate, which makes this the greatest country. Unfortunately most people down here generalize me as arrogant because they hear rude generalizations like ones above. Us Yanks like to toy with sarcasm and facetious comments, making us look unhappy and arrogant. Not necessarily so. In Germany I told my friend "it's just beating a dead horse." She replied "Americans do this sort of thing?" Have fun with it.
