|Dang! Missed this last week. Thanks Kattarina! Yes, some of me ancestors had a bit of time. Reading about Mary Queen of Scots and all those folk makes Richard III and Hamlet seem like happy tales.|
I'm currently watching the series "A History of Scotland" by Neil Oliver. It's bloodcurdling. And I thought the Scottish were nice and peaceful, disturbed only by the nasty English. How wrong I was!
Oh we're (well...I don't know I can claim any actual citizenship at this point) a terrible lot. As bad tempered as the Irish, but we don't need religion as an excuse to kill one another. All that haggis just puts us in a frightful mood. Plus, we don't make a beer worth a damn to wash it down - we just get pissed on whiskey. Granted it's good whiskey, but then we're 5 times as drunk as any Irishman which means we can only fight dirty and sober (thus miserable) or dirty and falling down a lot.
Oh and steal...we're good at stealing stuff. Like our brothers' and fathers' wives, their homes, land, thrones, etc.
Lovely place to go these days and just a great people, but boy am I glad I wasn't there back before 1900 or so.
