Re: What Nationality are you?

Well, seeing as the Aussies/Kiwis & Yanks/Canadians seem to have accepted being grouped together, I guess I'll accept (as a Paddy, and in the spirit of Swiss neutrality) being grouped with the Brits.

Oh, how my grandfather must be turning in his grave!

The poll was put together by an American, I think this might explain the world being simplified...

Maybe smelling like teen spirit?
Heh, I think it's more accurately termed uni student smell: a mixture of booze, pot and stale pizza. Never smelled this outside of the US so I call it the American smell but it's unfair I should call it the US uni smell

I'm from Saudi Arabia, Middle East. I'm a consultant of Oracle applications, especially CRM applications, as well as Sieble applications. I hope one day I can live & work in CH permanently.

Dual nationalities?
Or triple, for greedy people like me. I'm sure there's probably a stateless person who's missing their citizenship somewhere because i'm such a passport hoarder.

Well, I'd provide a whinge about NZ and Oz being the same for the purposes of this poll, but when this far away from home, we're pretty much the same. Except when there's cricket and rugby on. Then we're enemies.
LOL ! I agree! But you forgot to mention Netball! I can tell you are a testosterone ridden male. Wonder when NZ are going to put a team together to compete in the AFL. Go the Eagles! BTW do you get any aussie rules games telecast on SKY Sports. I guess Euro Sports wouldnt show it.

If you use the English word for the country (only right since this is a forum for English speaking people living in Switzerland), then perhaps we can tell you.

Re: What Nationality are you?

I class myself as being A 'European National' because like a lot of Auslanders I dont feel particularly British anymore and certainly dont feel Swiss. Its the dual nationality thing. One foot in each camp and not particularly feeling at home anywhere.... Grief! That makes me a vagrant! I must stop washing, start drinking paint thinners and reciting avant gard poetry to no one in particular.

Quite correct as any educated person from gods own knows it is a Republic and I have been a citizen of the republic of Yorkshire for the whole of my life as birth under the suns rays on the emerald carpet is surely the only way to become a citizen unless of course your dad belongs to the above category.
