(Stolen topic, as you might've or might not have guessed. :p)

As in, if you weren't "English" what nationality would you be? And why?

I myself like being an American, but I would prefer being Scottish a lot more...for ancestral reasons, if anything.

I'd like to be pure Mexican. Then I'd be tan. Darnit all.

Or Japanese, as a few people have told me that they thought I was just that when they had first seen me. Odd, but true. O.o

i would love to be Irish... for the natural red hair (which would save me from dying my hair tirelessly over and over Razz ), and simply because i would be proud to have descended from their country. i admire the Irish in every aspect. Smile

I'd want to be Egyptian. It's where life started, it's where it all began, the Motherland.

Native American comes with a beautiful culture alright, but there are some issues today. Have you ever been on a Great Plains Indian Reservation?

I'm glad I'm not the only one who wants to be Scottish. Or British...heh. I'm not descended from either place (I'm Austria, Ukrainian and German).

I'd love to be Native American, also, despite the conditions they have today. Not all Native Americans live on those reservations.

I think that could be because they have their own reservations, Viv. That's probably why you don't see them out in public, doing their dances and rituals. XP But...that would be pretty awesome if they did, however.

It also depends on where you live, me thinks. :p

Truthfully, though, I don't know if they're dying out or not...

Well, if you want to see it, come visit me up here in North Dakota. The Pow Wow is this weekend. If you want to see something cool, I'll be glad to take you there. It's something *everybody* should *experience* at least once in their life. It's a nonstop whirlwind of dancing, singing, decorations, art, sculpture, competitions, and of course a bit of drinking here and there. XD It's great fun. I don't drink of course, no worries.

(Kero, you coming to visit me is *NOT* optional =D)

Hmm...Dragonfly, IF you're talking to me or anyone else here (I don't want to assume too much here, so that's a pre-cautionary statement); I'm 'fraid I won't be able to come. Not only because it'd be a pain to get my family to go along with it (no offense, but they're paranoid just as much as I can be about peeps on the internetz), but I've still got a crapload of work to do to make up for my absences last week (4 days out of 5 I didn't attend...yayyy go me =p). Sorry 'bout that. Neutral

In all honesty?

I think this pretty much sums up my feelings on the matter.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oq0t7ZUwzGA

Here are the words just in case your computer is mean and won't play the vid:
If tomorrow all the things were gone
Iíd worked for all my life,
And I had to start again
with just my children and my wife.
Iíd thank my lucky stars
to be living here today,
ĎCause the flag still stands for freedom
and they canít take that away.

And Iím proud to be an American
where at least I know Iím free.
And I wonít forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
And Iíd gladly stand up next to you
and defend her still today.
ĎCause there ainít no doubt I love this land
God bless the U.S.A.!

From the lakes of Minnesota,
to the hills of Tennessee,
across the plains of Texas,
from sea to shining sea,

From Detroit down to Houston
and New York to LA,
Well, thereís pride in every American heart,
and itís time to stand and say:

Iím proud to be an American
where at least I know Iím free.
And I wonít forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
And Iíd gladly stand up next to you
and defend her still today.
ĎCause there ainít no doubt I love this land
God bless the U.S.A.!

Well, Iím proud to be an American
where at least I know Iím free!
And I wonít forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me!
And Iíd gladly stand up next to you
and defend her still today!
ĎCause there ainít no doubt I love this land
God bless the U.S.A.!



-------

I've got a lot of history, with family coming from all over the globe, and I've been interested in learning about some of those cultures, but at the end of the day, there is nothing more I'd like to be than what I am, an American who is proud of our country, our freedom, our heritage.

God bless the U.S.A.!

Lol @ Dragonfly. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it either XD For the same reason as Viv's on the family worrying (Especially my bf. Can you say 'overprotective'? hehe.) But you know what WOULD be awesome, if you took pictures of the Pow wow and posted them here for us to see =D

Ooooh... this one's easy for me!

Myself, I'd like to be Japanese. Strange, yes, but I have good reason!

I'm in love with the culture, the country, the way of life. I'm trying to teach myself the language, but it's harder than it looks. At least, for me it is. And the system of writing, Kanji, Katakana, Hiragana, Kana... wow! Beautiful! I listen to some of the music (okay, mostly the rock), and I just really, really love it.

Besides... most Japanese women are waaaayyyy prettier than I am now. XD

XD Heh! You guys rock. I was actually just using a wierd way of talking. I don't really mean for any of you to come up, I was just saying how great it was. Sarcasm? Yes. But if you could come up here would I show you around? You know it. Take some pictures? Sure I will! You guys'll love it. (I really hope I don't forget.) But the Pow Wow is like Christmas time around here. XD

Edit: THat is to say that the feeling in the air during Pow Wow is energetic, not that it's around Christmas time in December.

I have a deep love of other cultures, notably Japanese, but I have no desire to be anything other than what I am... That being green martian living in Moscow (Disclaimer: Nothing about that last sentence is true in any way, shape or form).

Would you believe my... "humor" is an absolutely independant development? Didn't know Roxy until after I joined dA about... a year ago, I think?

...

Unsure, about the date of it, in any case. You will find that posts like this are usually spawned by my crippling insomnia, rather than an actual attempt at being zany.
