    Is this serious and true? If so, it forces to think you make quite an interesting specimen.
    Emotion, passions, and desires are, thus peace is not.

    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    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.

    Default Re: the nationality thread

    I feel like going into some detail...

    I have some Scot in me - my great, great uncle was Provest of Dumfries.

    A good bit of Englishman - My great, great, great, great, great grandfather was 'Sir Eliab Hardy' who was Admiral of the Temeraire (as in the fighting Temeraire by Turner) and fought beside Lord Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar :)

    A little bit more Englishman... - My (lots and lots of greats) grandfather was William Harvey, who discovered circulation of the blood and was King Charles the First's physician.

    Probably some Welsh, as I have a Welsh surname.

    And no Irish so far as I know.


    ...and yet here I am, sitting a house in dingy Aberdeen, and not in a great estate somewhere in England :P -My family seems to have a big tradition of losing large amounts of money before their children can inherit it. Eliab Hardy lost a fortune gambling, and my Great, great uncle lost a massive estate and mansion because he didn't have any sons. Stupid 19th Century sexism...

    Most of all I'm a Aussie!

    I am part Irish and English as well. Also a bit of Scottish.

    But I am most proud of being AUssie and Irish.

    I can trace my English relatives back to a man who lived in 1208, some peasant.

    Except my kids and grandkids who were born in

    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticise.

    As for as I know, I don't have anything else than good old inbred norwegian blood in me.

    Not too surprising though, as I'm extremely blonde, and my eyes are blue...
