    Well, I suppose I could have Jewish blood and/or Native Canadian blood and/or Celtic blood, but the fact that my father was 100% German, whose family migrated from West Prussia to East Prussia and then to Ukraine, while my mother’s English father was actually Swiss German, I would say that I am running somewhere in the 75% area.

    But I don’t think this thread is about debating ethnic make-up.

    I typed my email address in the wrong box when registering.

    However, the Kryton thing is a misspelling of Kryten of course. I inherited this name because allegedly in my 20’s when roaring drunk I adopted a certain type of knees-out walk…

    quite so. When we meet, I’ll explain why, and you can give me 50p which I’ll use to partly pay for the pint I’ll buy you. 😆

    Weird. I forgot to stick a 46 on the end of my name too.

    Somewhat unimaginatively…..

    Not my pic. But my first ‘proper’ mountain bike. Look how steep it looks – no wonder OTB was my favourite crash style.

    I’ve been called Binners since I was at school (1867). Our kid started to call me Bin Lid as it rhymes with Our Kid, it stuck, then got appropriated to Binners. I love that my little nieces call me Uncle Binners 😀

    Weird. I forgot to stick a 46 on the end of my name too.

    I’d intended to put 46 at the beginning of mine.

    mine was a just a random selection of letters which unfortunately formed a recognisable phrase.

    Soma,

    for the fictional drug in one of my fav books Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World and it is the name of my fav record label from Glasgow

    Somafunk because that is what we used to call the slightly out of this world feeling on a sunday/monday/tuesday that 48hrs of friday and saturday clubbing at the sub club would leave us with.

    EG : Phew!…….I’m in a right somafunk after last nights session.

    A haggis is a fictional creature of Scottish folklore, said to be native to the Scottish Highlands.

    Just like a haggis, I have one leg shorter than the other,so I am very fast at running round hillsides (anti clockwise).

    My name is Jef. I tend to make up silly names for things.

    Still don’t get why you transposed the B and the Z?

    Thanks for your input Junky. I’ll check again next week to make sure it’s not changed if that’s ok?

    Sent to the headmasters office (age 11) for using an accelerant to sequentially light 45 Bunsen burners in series during one particularly boring science class, my friends told me I was “Daffy Ducked”. It stuck.
