    Ahh, c'mon. There's some good people up there, and a few nice areas sure (Edinburgh is quite nice), but the place is a dive on the whole, you can't deny it Dal :lol: . There's a few shítehouse places in England defo, but Scotland needs some serious money spending on it!

    South Africa isn't a very nice place to live, either. Why do you think most of them are over here :lol: . I mean Cape Town is like.. just dangerous!

    I like being Québécois (I.E. French-Canadian), I really do. But if I had to choose either Irish, because the accent is marvelous, or German, mainly because I like the sound of german (even though my german's horrible) I wouldn't mind being Norvegian too. Jeg er ein elk! :lol:

    Gaelic Scottish, Catholic, Gaelic as first tongue, some Jacobite history. Yes, I actually believe the Stuarts to be the legitimate dynasty.

    French, Catholic, counter-revolutionary background. However, living in modern day France would be extremely difficult for me.

    My first choice would be to become a New Zealander, my second Irish, and third British.

    hmm, I'm not sure. I'm leaving for Spain after Jan 1. to study for at least 6months, so after then I may be able to say with certainty whether or not I'd like to be spanish :D

    Off the top of my head right now, probably Brazillian though. Never been there though :/

    polls in the last year show that New Zealand has the highest single female:male ratio, and that New Zealand-ish women statistically have more sexual partners than women in any other country. Not too sure if I'd be able to put up with their cricket team or their pronunciation of 'graph' though.
    German would be pretty cool (although I'm already 1/2 German, but from about 4 generations back), but I'm not sure my 12/20 for German in yr 12 (and a 6/40 for a vocabulary test) would help me too much in the language department.
    The Scandinavian countries always seem pretty appealing, but again I'm not too sure how i'd go at trying out a new language.

    My first choice would be somewhere from the former British Empire - England, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, Canada...). But there's something inherently cool about the Swiss - money and chocolate, sounds like paradise to me! And for sheer badassery, I'd have to say Israeli.

    After 6+ years living in Éire I'd say I'm already 20% Irish, so...

    1. Canadian - for general chilled-out-ness[*]Kiwi - Pro: Lord of the Rings, awesome scenery. Con: earthquakes, too many sheep.[*]German - because I speak the lingo (vaguely) and get mistaken for a German all the time anyway.
