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


Its ok providing that its not being used by chavs and idiots. Otherwise it just becomes a thick pile of jibberish that sounds slightly threatening and dull witted.

I've heard stories. Never been there myself. But it is one of the few bases with a bad attitude towards it. the other is offutt, as in “Once you get Offutt, you can't get off it.”

Silos are the worst tho.

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

Technically I'm Icelandic from a Faroese descendant and sadly I can only trace my lineage about 200 years back :(

…apart from the European kings and queens.
But didn't they all marry their brothers and sister, cousins, aunts and uncles and things? o_O
That's why it's so easy to trace back their family :þ

“And here's Uncle Joey… and Great Uncle Joey… and Grandpa Joey… and other Grandpa Joey…”
“Wow… You sure have many relatives, named Joey.”
“…many?”

Got ya beat PP, I can trace mine back almost 2000 years. Admittedly there is quite a bit of nobility in there, and a smidge of royalty.
See, that's the thing. Once you manage to tie your family to a noble tree, you gain access to a huge records of family books, making it much easier for you to look back into the past.

The olden day Icelanders had a fetish for that kind of thing. They really loved talking about who was related to whom and a common conversation starter was: “Hverra manna ert þú?” (means “Who's people are you?” ) and thus kept crazy accurate records of pretty much every great family in the country, reaching back to the settlement era. Pretty much the only people excluded from it are the occasional drifters. The cool thing is that whenever I feel like it, I can start digging into my records because it's available for me online. Sadly, none of you folk can access it, for it's for Icelanders only.

…I supposed I should end this with a really funny fact. Due to how accurate the records are and how few Icelanders there are (around 300 thousand (only 50 thousand, a century ago)), it's pretty much possible to link any two Icelanders to a common ancestor (of course, if global records were accurate enough and stretched back far enough, this would be possible to do with any human). I remember me and my buddies once trying it out and the closest relations we discovered was between me and one of my best buddy at the time, who was related to me via 12th generation. Everyone else were around 16 or 18 generations apart.

Anyways, the funny thing that I was gonna get at was that when people around here start dating/sleeping with each other, one of the first thing they tend to do is to sneak into the good book and look up how closely related they are. If it's closer then 5 generations, then it usually creeps them out enough to break it up. A punch worthy insult is to call an Icelander inbred. A fun tip for those who really want to piss them off.
Those were my two cents.
If you have any other questions, please deposit a quarter.

Currently residing in Australia, or the ‘West Island’ to the Kiwis…

Origin???? … I'm sorry, I cannot tell you that. Besides, you wouldn't believe it anyway. And even if I did tell you and you tried to tell others that I was in reality an ‘agent-provocateur’ sent over from the Faeire dimension above yours to report and spy on human activities, no-one would believe you… ha ha haaaaaa…

Everytime I'm asked where I'm from, I almost always blurt out “my momma's crotch!” ….but…I'll skip that this time.


I'm American, born and raised….living in St. Charles, MO 30 miles west of St. Louis.

In my military days, though, I've literally been all over the world, the Philippines being my favorite!

The details of my life are quite inconsequential… very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum… it's breathtaking- I highly suggest you try it.

Born in California. Grew up in California, Oregon, Colorado, Montana, Hawaii, Louisiana (in that order). Have been settled in Louisiana for a while now. Still down here, anyway, and that counts for something.

What nationality are you? American
Where were you born? Gatesville, Tx. (40 miles west of Waco.)
Where do you live now? I just moved to Waco from Chicago, IL. My parents were both health physicists and contracted out to different nuclear facilities, though, so I've lived all over the US. I've never been in the same area for longer than a year or two at a time.

I know that we have a mixed heritage of random European nations, but that's too long ago to really feel connected with. On my Dad's side, though, I have Blackfoot Indian (My great grandfather was full blooded), which accounts for my build, hair color, and cheekbones. :) I inherited mom's translucent, freckly skin though. :( Mom's side had a little Cherokee blood, but its not something that's polite to talk about with her side of the family, so I'm not really sure how close it was.
