At least we don't say "figger" and "choob".

How do other nationalities pronounce "you" and "might" and "hard" and "time"?

It hurt my brain trying to figure out what kind of accent you are even trying to portray there!

Sounds like a country boy from the Midwest or Mid-Atlantic.

no, it sounds like you're trying to provoke a battle of words or stir up trouble and if you really think that's how we talk then you are or have been talking with some very uneducated people.

We have different accents to each other too, keep in mind a lot of what you hear on TV is Cali and New York. A stereotypical Brooklyn, New Orleans, milwaukee speech are very different.

Southern dialects are difficult to understand. This must be what the OP is referring to.

Actually said from the 'harrrrrrd' which is admittedly an exaggeration/joke I was trying to phoneticize how I was saying it. And I've never even been to the South. Phonetically a generic US accent is similar to a southern accent it just lacks a drawl.
