Ennui has not set in with MA.

What would happen if every ATS member started a thread called "Question time with *insert member name*" ?

What's the prevalent theme among Scots at home? In US terms would you say sophisticated, drunken brawlers, rednecks, all of the above?

The reason I ask, I'm of Scottish descent here in NC. We have Highland games, etc, but they (we) are commonly known as HILLBILLIES in the US. At least those that immigrated. And probably rightfully so.

(Not me) but they also tend to be racist SOB's. Alot of Klan activity from the Scots around here. Coincidence or part of the heritage?

Edjumacate us Nerdling?

Many of the Scots who emigrated to the South Eastern US were heavily involved in the slave trade, so it is part of their heritage, but not part of Scottish culture in general.

And yes, we are all drunken brawlers.

I do apologise for answering a question addressed to Nerdling, but I felt it had to be cleared up.

Well we're a sophisticated type of people however we do like a good drink.

Number 1 Conversation Topic = The Weather.

Person 1: Aye, the skies grey th'day
Person 2: Aye, tis....aye.... *sigh*

We're very proud of our heritage and we generally don't like the english... the irish.... the germans... the french... russians... canadians... american tourists... the japanese... and the list goes on.

Black people? In Scotland? Are you mad?
We don't have black people in scotland.

Just lots of asians, specifically gangs of hyped up muslims from pakistan who seem to think they run the city.

No prob. That's fascinating. They rounded up slaves? Sailed the seas? I had no idea. If that is hat you meant.

Never knew the Scots were big sailors. Were they mostly crew then on English ships? Or Danish? Or what?

If they call it a 'head' of lettuce, then what did they do with the rest of the body?

They renamed all the bad bits "cabbage"

It explains the awful taste

Being part of the UK, Scots mainly sailed on British ships. At it's peak in the 19th/20th century, Scottish shipbuilding accounted for almost one third of the world's merchant shipping. Scotland played quite a disproportional part in running the British empire. Many rich merchants were based in Scotland and traded in Tobacco, tea, cotton, etc. Until Slavery was made illegal under British law the same merchants were involved in transporting slaves from Africa to America, and in running plantations.

Why do they call it a pair of pants when you only get one?

Would a fly without wings be called a walk?

If the funeral procession is at night, do folks drive with their lights off?

Why do they sterilize the needles for lethal injections?

Why is the word abbreviation so long?

What do you do when you discover an endangered animal that eats only endangered plants?

Why are there braille signs on drive-up ATM's?
