So, a couple of random questions for y'all:

1) What do YOU call a water fountain? 
2) What do YOU call your grandparents?
3) Is dude now a national term, or is it still sort of a regional thing?
4) So, yesterday was 4/20. Is this actually celebrated anywhere?


1) A water fountain. :)
2) In English, grandma/grandpa; I won't include the Spanish.
3) It's used in southeast Texas. >>
4) Not really here, though I heard it is in California...?

As a note, I live in New York City.

1) Water fountain.
2) Granny for my grandmother, and Poppa for my grandfather.
3) I think it's not so much a regional thing as a subculture thing. I hardly ever hear it among my friends, but I think it's used more often among people of a lower class than my friends generally are.
4) Here in NYC? Definitely.
