Its a known fact that your a dumping ground for the flotsam and jestsom of Europe and points North, South, East and West.

Could be worse and your an Aussie, we all know what and where they came from  ;)

Ahh yes - "encouraged" to migrate for their country's good  ;D . I'm a little disappointed with my lot, none were convicts although one jumped ship in Sydney in the late 1830s, instead of continuing to New Zealand as an indentured labourer so I suppose that is almost as good.

Cut it out! Cut it out! Cut it out! The hell's the matter with you? Stupid! We're all very different people. We're not Watusi. We're not Spartans. We're Americans, with a capital 'A', huh? You know what that means? Do ya? That means that our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. We are the wretched refuse. We're the underdog. We're mutts!


- Bill Murray in "Stripes" for anyone not familiar

Glad my forefathers ended up in a place where it didn't matter where or why you left.  One of them actually showed up in chains after a little time on another lonely Pacific island.  Anyone ever look for Amelia on Lamutrik?  Hint: It doesn't even have a wikipedia entry.

Ah yes, the victors write the history, don't they?  Lamutrik is the German spelling.  I should have known.
