    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    European American.

    UK, and German mainly. I can't give exact percents since I don't know enough about where the last names came from. But I know I've got a little Scottish, British and North German (Hamburg I think) in me.

    Greatest to least percentage (I don't have exact figures): Scottish, Irish, English, Norwegian and a tiny dash of Bohemian.

    Although I identify most with my Irish, partly because I was led to believe I was mostly Irish and partly because I favor Ireland over Scotland.

    Europeans are all a bunch of mongrels too.

    I guess I'm made up of the usual mix of Celtic, Roman and Germanic blood. But there's no way to retrieve percentages.

    And I know of some Walloon(?), German, Gypsy and Dutch blood in the not too distant past.

    I'm tall, blond and blue/green eyed.

    Approximately 100% English. No non-English ancestors known about with a family tree going back to at least 1754 and as far back in some cases as the 13th Century.

    Therefore I am a Viking/Saxon/Angle/Jute/Norman/Roman.

    Half english and half welsh with dashes of scottish and dutch and no doubt irish, norse and norman french.

    I read somewhere that, interestingly, the majority of men in Britain, particularly in England and Wales were of Briton descent and that very few were infact Anglo-Saxon or Viking genetically (though this depended on location quite a bit). It said that the Anglo-Saxon invasion was very much more a cultural thing where a social elite moved over and imposed themselves and their culture on the native populace, much like the Norman invasions, but that there was no mass migration. If true this means that most English people are in fact Welsh

    Boring? JAG you surprise me, i was SURE you would agree with Cecil Rhodes:

    To be born English is to have won first prize in the lottery of life".


    Alas, George Orwell may have diagnosed your disease:

    "England is perhaps the only great country whose intellectuals are ashamed of their own nationality. In left-wing circles it is always felt that there is something slightly disgraceful in being an Englishman and that it is a duty to snigger at everything from horse racing to suet pudding. It is a strange fact, but it is unquestionably true that almost any English intellectual would feel more ashamed of standing to attention during God Save the King than of stealing from the poor box."
    Still true today. Great man, Orwell.
