No. But Google tells me that perhaps one day I should...

Detroit, Michigan (USA).

Flint Town Mi USAi

I like it!  I live on the other side of the mitten in Holland.  For those Dutch people out there, it's pretty much the most dutch place in the united states.  :)

I have a brother in Flint, and a brother in law in Holland, I think.  Is Holland near Grand Rapids?  If so then I'm pretty sure that's where the brother in law is.

I'm in Tennessee myself in case you couldn't tell from the accent I type in.

It is close to GR, only about 30 minutes west.

Hello.  Name's Bruce.  It's all right.  I understand.  Why trust a shark, right?

Is quite curious - Who is the mystical "Celestial Chameleon"?

Bunch of Ann Arbor people, too? I went to college there. I have lived in Michigan my whole life, except for a summer internship in Washington DC, and a fall internship in Arizona. I live on the East Cost (of Michigan) now, near Detroit.

The poll makes no allowance for the Republic of Ireland.

Nor Iceland, Cyprus or Malta!

The term "continental Europe" is misleading in this way, since I think it just means in this case "non-UK Europe", even though Ireland is more closely related to the UK than the old central European powers.

What about the hundreds of millions in Indonesia and many other 'island nations' most certainly don't live in 'Australia / New Zealand'? Point is, yeah, the poll's not perfect. But unless you're from one of those places, I wouldn't worry too much

I think Cyprus and Malta count as Continental Europe.  Both are as close to the non-island portion of Europe as Crete is to mainland Greece, and closer than Sardinia, Corsica, or the Balearics, as well as closer than Key West is to Florida.  Alas, poor Iceland, though.

At the same time, the poll also leaves no room for the Pacific Islands (e.g. Fiji, Tonga)

All that said:

I have edited the poll after educating myself with this informative Euler diagram on the differences between England, Great Britain, United Kingdom, and British Isles.

Which might be changing soon if Scotland get independence...

People constantly referring to the UK as "England" piss me off to no end... although I didn't know that British Isles and British Islands were distinct terms.

I'm from France. Studying in Paris, but right now working in Le Havre over the summer (yeah, the city from Rosenberg's game. It's about as exciting as the game makes it seem).

Hey, this might be a place to ask this:
When is it 'Scottish', and when is it 'Scotch'?

You drink Scotch. You drink with the Scottish.

Well... but the Scotch Game and Scotch Gambit are Scotch, not Scottish.... and yes, they're named after Scotland - d4 having been played by Edinburgh against London. Which leads me to believe it's a bit more complicated than that.

Neither. It is always 'Scotlandish'.

When someone is similar to Scott, but not entirely, he is Scott-ish.
