I like that toy...ooooh.
Those are not ear warmers, though, but noise plugs. I always get deaf after shooting some heavy machinery.

I desized, though, on the buns.
(Ew, that came out poorly..)



Still warmer than a crew cut.

By the way, it's not only Jedi thing. Most folks actually are either Jewish (historically), or Celts, German (the research is done on genes carryng certain diseases) than Slavs.

I am not sure about identifying with Jedi back home, but I can safely say most of them are pre Xmas drunk by now..

well being there for 5 years I noticed way too many blond blue eyed people for slavic ancestry. Explanation is simple - during swedish wars in medieval times, the country was overrun by those northern folks and their finnish mercenaries, and they did have their share of fun with local girls. And chzechs don't even have problems admitting that. That would maybe explain their ever-*itchin' attitude that even hectolitres of good beer cannot purge

Oh god, I don't really want to think about this...but I must have Swedish ancestors then, arghhh.

I don't think so, though, seriously, that us being blond blue eyes is Swedish, it's more Germanic thing, genetically. But better to be yelled at "Swede" than "arian" that I got in school

The beer attitude just comes from beer being certain quality..
