I'm white.

I have a big mix of Polish, Swedish, Irish, Scottish and some other things.

My parents once researched our last name (which is extremely rare) and supposedly traced it to Armenia. Who knows... I might be Armenian!

261 views and only 37 votes? And surely there must be at least one member of Hispanic or African origin?


Hmm, I think I'll talk to my friend about joining here, He really loves this kinda sh*t, and that would be a at least one person from Africa (hes from Mali and is a foreign exchange student).

And if all goes well, he'll hopefully be able to start recruiting people back in Mali for the spudgunning cause haha... we're already planning on making a video for him to take back to help educate his friends.

I'm kinda surprised that we don't have anyone of Hispanic origin though...

Toyed with the idea, but could barely get a 100 pound blond a 100 feet, she still enjoyed the ride though.

I am about 7/8 Scotch-Irish (Protestant Scots who settled in Ireland hoping to spread the Protestant religion to the Irish Catholics) and about 1/8 Prussian (former country between Poland and Russia). My last name is of Scotch-Irish origin and happens to be very rare. My family went in the late 1700's down the Shennandoah Valley with a bunch of other Scotch-Irish immigrants to settle in Southern Kentucky and Northern Tennessee.

In descending order:

Irish (5/16)
Italian (1/4)
German(1/4)
Scottish (1/16 and damn proud of every drop)
Danish (1/16 same as above)
English (1/16 Well... fork.)

EDIT: And yes, my last name is extremely rare. I googled my last name, and apparently I share it with an Irish real estate firm, and a dead cricket player who was one of the leading bowlers in 1951.
