As many internet groups are, this is such a multi-national bunch. Just curious what we've got here (if you be livin' under the radar, you might want to skip this thread)

What nationality are you?
Where were you born?
Where do you live now?

Me: US. Iowa, US. New Jersey, US.

I'm Canadian.
I was born here in Central Canada(the prairies) and have lived here my whole life. Hopefully that won't be the case for too much longer. :\

I am American, descended from Canadian, English, Scotch-Irish, Italian, and German.

I was born in WV, USA, where I lived for 26 years (18 rural, 8 urban-ish).

I currently live in rural VA, USA.

I hope to live elsewhere soon, if I get any leads on a job. It's lovely around here, but BORING (and lonely).

Um… o..kay…

American born Flip (as Filipinos are affectionately called here) though it's hard to tell since I don't speak the language, lack the accent and my American English is near perfect

As for where I was born and where I am, let's just say an island in the middle of the Pacific which is the largest in a chain of islands in the middle of the Pacific, and leave it at that (no, it's not Hawaii). :)

Pure bred Icelander. Can trace my lineage back a thousand years.

Bet there's not allot of people who can do that… apart from the European kings and queens.
Those were my two cents.

Ever since Jerry Adams and Ian Paisley shut their big, fat, flapping mouths, finally, I've really started to love the Northern Irish accent!

King Louis XII or XIII if I recall it right. But yeah, I have an aunt that's very much into this type of thing. Last check we had two or three 3-inch (that's about 7.5 cm for you SI folks) D-ring binders with just the tree. It's friggin' HUGE!
