    They were the ones who invented the Seltzer Bottle right, back in 335 BC?

    Before I answer: are you (for all intents and purposes) a Celt?

    If I tell you I'd have to lop off your head with my broadsword. Do you still want my answer?

    Your willingness to come to blows over a Seltzer Bottle has answered my question already.

    I'm descended from a race of noble savages who came across the sea to kick some butt. During the period of our noble savagery, a 500 year period from around 900AD, we interbred with the Germanic tribes (always ones to invade Europe in a heartbeat) of the South, the Saxons, Agles and Jutes.

    Our father's father's father's father's ambition was to pillage stuff and as they came from the land of the ice and snow, from the midnight sun where the hot springs flowed and as the hammer of the gods drove their ships to new lands where they fought the horde while singing and crying: "Valhalla, I am coming!"

    Good times; bad times also.

    You should start a Saxons, Angles and Jutes thread.

    Are you standing in for Grampy Bobby? If so I think you need to incorporate a needle-jab about my maturity or ability to focus. At least be ready with the copy/paste of the forum guidelines.

    My mother's side of the family originated from Alsace and I'm good at tying knots. Am I qualified?

    So you adress all persons with European descendency? It is hardly conceivable that any European is without celtic roots. At what date do you draw your line?
