I would like to be British for a number of reasons,mainly for their rich heritage,keen eye for trends,music,the accent and most of all their bloody sense of humor. If you could be another nationality what would it be and why?

Wow..there are so many with which I am fascinated! I suppose I would say Scottish or German. Hubbys and my anscestors were German. I do love that Scottish accent though! One of the physicians that hubby and I see is from Scotland, I just love his accent and sense of humor. I have never met a Scotsman that I didn't like!

I'm Scottish and to be honest I don't think theres anything else I'd rather be. I'm really proud of my heritage, plus the accent is cool...LOL. If I really had to choose then I'd go with Canadian. My wife is from there and I lived in Canada for 17 years. Beautiful country and really great people.

Wow. This is a good one. My mom's side is entirely English and Irish, my paternal grandfather's family is French and Irish and then my paternal grandmother was American Indian. I'm descended from one of the kings of Normandy, so I'm pretty satisfied with my heritage, but wouldn't mind being of British or French nationality had my family never migrated to the states. I am pretty happy being an American though :)

That is really not an easy question there. Another nationality. I guess I would have to know what it's really like to live in a country to want to identify with that natioanality. If I like the people and the place I could be any nationality as I have moved about the UK and Europe a lot and lived in Spain for a while. I found the Spaniards really friendly and helpful, but very laid-back everything was manĂ¡na(tomorrow) and I like getting things done now. I have not yet been to the USA, but would like to do so one day and wouldn't mind being an American because I have met lots of them, had friends and a girlfriend from there in my youth. At the moment I am quite happy being British, except for the weather :-)
