I must be British because their definitions were closer to my usage than the American ones...with the exception of 'fanny' pack. But maybe it was intuitive at a subconscious level since I wear them in the front.

It's funny that you mention this. I have a friend here in the US who lived in the UK for a few years and she mentioned to me in a Facebook thread to never mention a "fanny pack" over there.
I asked her if it meant something like a buttplug or dildo. She then posted this link.
