Of course the Russians are right up there with the Americans on this poll.  Manny promised before it all started that there would be a 65% turnout!   ;D

If the Ruskies and Yanks win the poll we'll have to rename the forum to somthing like, Russian & Ugly American Adventures!   8)

Hey, can I vote twice since my heritage is Dutch?  I don't want Mark to feel lonely!

I was born in USA, Northern Montana, just miles from the Canadian border.  Grandmother was born in "South Russia", (Zaporizhia Oblast?) and was 3 when her family emigrated. Grandfather was born in the Oklahoma territory, great grandfather immigrated from "Russian Turkestan" (Orenburg Oblast/Neu Samara?) .  My Father didn't begin to speak English until he was 6 and had to enter public schools.  Grandfather spoke Russian, grandmother spoke Russian and some plattdeutsche.

Another Aussie vote? !!!

Then I will keep the ratio the same with another USA vote.

But hey, why is TEXAS not listed as a country?  LOL

I am sure I am the only Portuguese here but I don't feel lonely because I have a devushka that besides being hot is also a great person ;D

P.S: The above statement does not automatically implies marriage  :chuckle:

I think Citizenship is a little paper book. Dude - you are a Russian.

K one W one.
I hope that's not too obscure. It's fairly remote.
