Of course we all came from Africa in the first place.

I find these maps interesting:

Well I guess if I want to go back that far I can say the Moroccan side was definitely from Spain. Always nice to see you post Jose

Re: What's your ethnicity?

5/8th's English, 1/8th's Scottish, 1/8th's Welsh, 1/8th's Irish I think.

In other word's, a typical 5th generation or whatever Anglo-Aussie.

Re: What's your ethnicity?

South Slavic 100 percent, but with (very) distant Hungarian roots on one side, which I blame for the red hair, and Turkish/Arabic on the other, which I blame for the nose.

Re: What's your ethnicity?

I'm a direct mix of Sri Lankan and Scottish, as far as I know. Not sure how to trace back any further due to lack of a family, so I'm just assuming that's all my background is.

Whatever the case it's resulted in me having a lightly tanned bronzish skin colour akin to Verdasco. DNA and wild ethnicity combinations aye? We're brought into the world through one badass Genes lottery.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Re: What's your ethnicity?

I am something like 60% Berber and 25% Arab. My dad always claims there is some French on my mom's side but I have seen no evidence of that so I leave 5% for that.
