What a Eurocentric poll...

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

See what you started, Robert?

I don't see an option for Martian/Rhode Islander! ;)

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

France/Italia/Espana/Portugalia/Philipines/Everything south of the Rio Grande[Central and Southern America]

How did all those get lumped together again? If you speak a romance language or a close derivative?  ....and throw the philipines in there for good measure?

Catholic countries with Romance languages or converted by Romance speaking peoples.
Oh I can't wait until a Smolensk debate comes up.

For the record, as a Dutchman (but not a flying one), I must object to being lumped together with the Germans.

Bad enough they invade us every couple of weeks...now we've got you acting like we're the same country!

I'm just gonna stay outta this one, I fit into 4 of those catigories, & I'm not sure what a Spanish perogi is.  Seems to me that the author of this poll doesn't know that some ethnicities doen't like being lumped together as if they're all buddy buddy & have potluck dinners.  I dislike this poll & recommend that it be revised to not show so much of the author's ignorance.
Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...
