Do you actually speak (some) German? Wink

Luzern is a lovely city. I highly recommend anyone to visit it!

     No, my family came here over a century ago. I'm thinking about taking German classes at some point, though.

A century ago many Swiss people, especially from rural areas in Switzerland, left the country as there was a great deal of poverty in certain regions and indeed many of them emigrated to the USA, where they could live in prosperity. Nice to see that your ties with Switzerland still exist. Wink

I think I did this a while ago, I might as well update it.

Age: 20
Gender: Male
Race/ethnic composition: White. British and German... very boring.
Religion: Atheist
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 187 lbs
Location: Timmins, ON in the summer, Toronto, ON during the school year. Living on campus, very close to Steeles Avenue.
Where you were born: Timmins, ON
Occupation: Right now I work at an equipment and machine rental company for the summer. Working alongside the mechanics. During the school year, I attend York University and study chemistry, and some biology starting in the fall (for a second teachable). Caution to everyone considering chemistry: don't. Smiley Unless you really want to.
Person you most admire: Person, eh... that's a tough one. There are a lot of influential and important people I can name, but I don't wanna sound boring. How about... Kristen Wiig? For the sole reason to turning SNL from a sh**tfest to bearable. Smiley That's an accomplishment.
Favorite Band: Have you ever gone through that phase where it's like, you only listen to one artist for a month or so? Or worse, only one album? Right now for me, it's Tegan and Sara, and I feel like I'm entering that phase. I gave their album "Sainthood" a listen on Friday, then I listened to it again, and again... and sh**t. I need to pull myself out. I also love Metric. A lot of Canadian bands are good. Smiley
Favorite President: Gosh, I dunno... LBJ passed some pretty significant legislation.
Favorite Sports team: Don't watch sports.
Your other interests: Love video games and manga. Kinda nerdy, no? Going out is also fun (kinda vague, I know, but I just like being out). Chemistry is also fun (I hate it during the school year though). Being gay is also pretty boss as well.

Er...hello everyone!

Age: 18
Gender: Male, biologically. Some gender issues.
Race/ethnic compostion: White with some faint Central Asian admixture. An eighth Jewish. Mostly Italian, Irish/British chop suey, Polish, Russian (that's where both the Jewish and the Central Asian admixture come in); some French, possibly German, possibly Romani.
Religion: Episcopalian, fairly high church; would probably be Catholic if not for a few specific ideological and organisational beefs I have with that church. Very interested in East Asian religious thought but not considering converting to anything.
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 185 lbs.
Location: Amherst, Massachusetts (staying with family in New Jersey for the summer though; I grew up in Vermont)
Where you were born: Franklin County, Massachusetts
Occupation: University student (History and Japanese)
Person you most admire: 'My mother' is a fairly hackneyed answer but in my case it's true. She's a progressive activist and lawyer. She's awesome.
Favorite Band: Dire Straits, Kajiura Yuki, Talking Heads, The Killers, Maaya Sakamoto, Leonard Cohen, Warren Zevon
Favorite President: I am fascinated by both Adamses, Arthur, and Coolidge as men (my New England bias showing), and I like the policies of both Roosevelts, Eisenhower, and in many but not all areas Carter, but I think that the greatest we ever had probably remains Lincoln. A fairly conventional answer, I know.
Favorite Sports team: Anything Boston/New England.
Your other interests: Books, tea, religion, classical music (especially piano and classical guitar), film, anime-when-it's-good, antiques, nature, agriculture, food, law...

Hi, people. I'm from Uruguay, the unknown "Switzerland of America". I'm also an unseccesful student of International Studies and Political Science. As a freak of elections across the world (and "american" elections in particular), I've been reading the forum since a long time ago, incluiding the Atlasia funny nonsense (you should update the wiki).

My ideologý, if I have one, is very liberal in social issues (my country is historically the most secular in the continent) and kind of "third-way" in economics.  

I know I should sympathise with democrats (besauce of ideology), buy I prefer the republicans because they're nuts.

Forgive my poor english (I'm an excellent reader but a bad writer), and thank you Lief for your signature (any link with Uruguay or you just love Forlán ?). I will use a Massachusetts avatar 'cause my parents met and got married there.
