Well, one night while on the chat room, I needed some help remembering that the Mega Drive in England, is the Genesis in America. So I asked if anyone there was British. I seemed to upset Sir Psycho Sexy a little, he preferred English. So I created this post, so to see if that is the general concensous, or whatever, so I can fix my lack of knowledge about these things, and be better in the future. Although the choices are weird, I really don't want to offend anyone. I just didn't want to leave anything out and I wanted to add some humor. I am deeply sorry if this offends you and will repremand myself severely if it does. I just want you to know that this is for me to make things better later, I don't hate you.

I think I will start a petition to have California seceed from the union.....hmmmmmmmm we are the 5th largest economy in the world.

Nooo, it's not offensive (to me anyways). There is a difference to being English/British etc. Brtain is the name for the collective isles of England, Wales, and Scotland, therefore if you were born in England you are English but British, if you were were born in Wales you are Welsh but still British etc. Umm, hope that makes sense!!

D'oh the whole Great Britain thing. I feel dumb. I sorta fergot what it meant cause of the United Kingdoms thing. I don't really know much about the whole thing.

And to clarify, this poll is for the people from that lovely Island on the other side of the sea where Mata and the others come from.

Sorry LoLo, I should've put it up top, it's not yer fault. Actually I'd like anyone to post but only those people I mentioned before to vote if possible, thankyou.

I am also a proud hater of the American thing. But only cause of the stupid, 'proud to be an American', 'God Bless America', and the rest of that crap! Selective patriotism. Blech, just make up yer friggin mind, don't love the country cause we were attacked, and especially not because we're off to war to annihilate some poor country far far away.

To sum it all up, if it were like the song, and I had the whole world in my hand, I'd either crush it, or poke at it until it stopped being so stupid and insulting.

Besides the whole living in america thing sucks. Sure there's the crappy gov. and the worse skuuls and whatnot, and I get fed by the bastards who lock up the food so I have to work for it. ARGGG!! ONI SMASH!!!

My passport says British, so I usually stick with that if pushed.

Mind you, I'm a bit of a mish-mash - English, Scottish, and a good portion of Greek make up the parts of my genetic make-up that I'm aware of. I'm certainly very Greek in many ways - adept at growing facial hair, fond of pasta, always seem relaxed, rampant libido - so I try to avoid any questions of nationality so far as I can.

Why was it, then, that I posted in this thread?
