Possibly the only one with Maori roots on the forum?

So, initial results indicate that this forum is populated largely by ethnic white males - are we genetically predisposed to find new and amusing ways of blowing holes in stuff, or are there non-english spudgun sites out there that make our sampling inaccurate?

Most Germans would be ethnically white so that wouldn't really affect the results.

Did you guys know that if not for ONE vote, Americans would be speaking German? I can't quote where i heard that, it's just something i remembered.

If that were the case then WW2 would have potentially taken a very different course...

Yes, but you said:

Last I checked, Germany's national language was German :)

Though that's besides the point, you said inaccurate sampling, therefore as Germans being mostly caucasian, a German spudgun site wouldn't fall under that catagory. So you are right :P

I meant English language spudgun sites ;p

It would be interesting to see if there was a genetic link though - for example, why were Europeans so quick to develop firearms over hundreds of years while African tribes remained content with sticks and stones?
