I'm 100% Irish. In terms of DNA celtic and viking. A great combo.

Celts are a culture not a race... pretty much all Europe on the Iron Age shared celtic culture... which is originary from central Europe by the way, not Ireland. It's core was around Hallstatt, nowadays Austria.

I'm aware of that.  Just saying where my ancestors all lived in the last few thousand years.  Any further back doesn't really bother me.  Sure if we keep going back far enough we were all monkeys in a jungle.

Whoo, Cantonese rep! XD I'm not Cantonese but my gf is. So I've actually seen a similar ad on this Cantonese TV channel her mom watches. Her mom seems to think of Trump as a really funny almost parody version of a President than an actual President. She's not a political person but she loves and laughs at whatever that channel is saying about him. Not that I'd know what they're saying since... I can't speak or understand it XD 

I will say though! A lot of those shows she watches (when they aren't soap operas) have very oddly placed cartoon-y sound effects 

Is it TVB? Or some other Cantonese TV channel?

Umm.. possibly. If it helps its the channel with the show about some guy who's like a ghost or something

These kind of things always are confusing to me. American's love their heritage because as a country you are young and so tracing your roots is something you do... don't like to admit most of you are German though. :P

Anyway, I'm English, go back far enough, no idea, Anglo-saxon before that well....

It isn't really just an american thing though. Most of the world was at war with Germany and Japan after Pearl Harbor, and contributed in some way. The Italian Campaign had many armies combined. The Soviet side had many armies combined. Very few countries stayed neutral.

Yup, that's the channel. Also I don't really like that show. Actually I don't like many of the shows on TVB, they follow too much of the same format...

I can't imagine having to watch TV in a language I don't know without any subtitles, I would probably be so confused.



Mexican and Korean



100% European.

Also almost 100% Flemish too I think. One of my great grandparents had a French surname though, so I guess I have an ancestor (maybe from a few centuries ago) who spoke French.

When going further back in time (1000-2000 years ago), I think I'm mostly German (I have blue eyes and used to be blonde) with a bit of Celtic (my great grandfather was ginger).
