NO! Not boring at all. I'm intrigued by language of all forms whether spoken, written or signed. The art of communication is very interesting. Its a terrible shame that heritages and languages are going extinct. I was once an interpreter. But understanding and speaking with alternate languages is a perishable skill, without frequent use the memory will lapse in a very short time. Of course, I might be the rare oddball with that fascination.

Ay, good old Killie! Not been there for ages, except to go to the cinema. Was recently at a place called Firepower in Caprington that's kinda like paintball but with high powered laser guns. That's well good fun.
It's no wonder 1 in 4 here suffer from mental health problems. I reckon we're all just suffering from permanent SAD. I mean, they get more sun in Greenland!
Either that or we're just genetically pre-disposed to being mental. Most folk would agree with that

Welcome and sorry to hear about your unfortunate circumstances. I myself have been through and continue through some life/mind and spirit altering complications, but will hold steadfast in faith.
If your traing has taught you anything, it's definately patience, discipline and endurance and you know these will take you beyond what most can endure.If you have a belief in God then your possibilities are endless.
I am of Scottish and Irish descent but have unfortunately never met any of my ancestors or have any knowledge or contact of who they were before my grandparents passed away. I just started a family tree to hopefully trace my lines back.
Not to be off topic but I know considering your martial arts experience and being from Scotland, you must know of Tommy Carruthers ? I've seen some videos of him on youtube and he is intense. If he's that fast can you only imagine what The master "Bruce Lee" must have been like? Again, welcome and wish you all the best.

Welcome to ATS.
Not long arrived home (in not so sunny England) after a 5 hour drive from Westerinch near Bathgate. Been working there all week and can vouch for the 'better than expected' weather too!
You'll certainly find plenty on here to keep you thinking.
