oh dear,
I should have read through ALL the posts before I assumed I was the only swede who knew of this place. But I'm glad someone could confirm that IKEA was swedish.

*catches breath* Finally at the end of this long thing! Just thought I'd clearify (since my other replies are entangled with the long thread of posts) that I'm from SWEDEN. Southern Sweden (Lund) to be exact, but that will change in a few weeks after which revolution I'll end up in HÄLLEKIS - hopefully not for too long. So count me as the fifth Swede, will you ffmike?

Happy New Year, fellow researchers

OK, update time. Enjoy. Maybe it's time to start a new thread?

As always, for those of us who listed multiple places, I chose the
current residence (assuming I could figure out which one that is),
unless the researcher emphatically specified some other city as
home. If you snuck a response into the conversation somewhere up
above and I missed it it's your own fault.

I've also updated the spiffy & pointless pie chart of these
results over on my home page. Come visit and see. As a bonus, you
can find out how to sign up for the strictly-unofficial H2G2
mailing list there as well.

But where is this place called Earth?
(Soe say I have no grasp on reality. I have a very firm grasp on reality. Just because it's not the same reality as YOUR reality, you pick on me.)

Once we have completed the Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy - Earth Edition - you will be able to find your way there and then you will know! Until then you must remain lost in space. Keep in touch we will try to find you before it is too late!

Whoops! Sorry, Stella. I missed your previous posting (I try to scan the entire topic when I update, but it's getting so long that it's hard to keep track of everything). I'll get you into the next summary, I promise. My wife's from Texas and I'll never hear the end of if it I don't!

Born: Virginia, USA
Raised/presently living: Pennsylvania, USA (in a county lovingly known as "Amishville" to her inhabitants... and LAN-cast-ER to non-inhabitants.)
ps, it's pronounced lan-cast-ER... (um. yeah, i think so. i can say it, not spell-sound it smiley - winkeye) sorry, I always think it's funny to hear out-of-towners say it wrong. smiley - smiley

Well ffmike as you visited my homepage I popped by your and discovered this. I see the Irish have been leading the Celts for most of the way, until a recent surge by the Scots. So to uphold the Irish end I am at least 10th generation Irish, before that the records are cinders. Although the family are of Scottish descent somewhere.

So Co. Down, N. Ireland. And it appears I'm all alone in the North, although there is another out there, as I've read his article on Belfast.

Since when were Kiwis shy and retiring during rugby and cricket matches, Keeza? You've repeatedly unmercifuly thrashed us Poms without being shy about it at all!

My mum told me I was born under a gooseberry bush at the bottom of our garden, so that must be where I'm from......

Fate Amenable To Change

I was born in London and after living in Bucks, Lancs, Tyne and Wear and Worcs, I now live in Birmingham, England.
And Can whoever the Stokie was explain to me why Stokies are totally incapable of saying they are from Stoke without also rattling off a list of Famous Folk Of Stoke?
