Implying this guy is “too light” to be Spanish is about one of the dumbest things I’ve read in this website (most of which come from you anyways) as there are Spaniards of about every skintone, from pasty white all the way to dark olive
He not Spanish because he’s not Spanish, he doesn’t look Spanish, why would anyone ever claim that
Your problem is you make legitimately ——– and ultimately completely unsubstantiated claims such as “northern Spaniards are Slavs”, so when there’s a person of Spanish ancestry you immediately claim “HE’S NOT SPANISH HE’S SLAV”
I’ve said this many times but you seem obessed with Spaniards and it’s pretty concerning, you should get that checked
I myself have German, English, Irish, and possibly Scottish (Documented) heritage, and parts of my ancestry rumored by my family such as Chinese, Indian, Egyptian, Italian and Native American, somehow, via intermarriage with my British/Anglo Australian ancestors. Although I’m a little confused about my heritage since the people closest to me have said that I look Scandinavian and I Agree, so, my best guess is that I’m someone else’s kid, with my mother being promiscuous and all. She previously dated two men who could be my father, one of the guys actually had Scandinavian heritage, Ah, but I guess I shall never know. I have no Scandinavian heritage, Btw.
Thanks for sharing. I am half Irish, 3/8th’s Norwegian, 1/8th Italian HOWEVER, everyone says I look Ashkenazi. in fact everyone on this site says I am a spitting image of David Schwimmer.
Heh, um, well, David Schwimmer kinda looks Italian, and, well a lotta Ashkenazi Jews and Jews, in general, resemble Italian’s. Italians have roots in Northern Africa and Mesopotamia which was situated in the middle east.
that’s a good point.
That’s Internet crap, including fake DNA tests you find on Reddit and other platforms. Schwimmer looking Italian?? Uhmm.
Bearboy, while I was lurking Reddit I spotted a noted troll who posted a fake Italian DNA test with a 29% not European component (North African, Arabian etc) and a fake pic of him (in reality a Lebanese dude in a disco). So since he felt in trouble he immediately deleted his profile and the thread. But a lot of users actually believed it was true…
Another time there was a real guy from Sicily who scored like 96% European. Comments were like: oh this is not possible or “you look half British..”
Welcome to the Internet.
wow there are a lot of strange people on reddit. I don’t use reddit but Lebanese dude at a disco lol.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetic_history_of_Italy#:~:text=Multiple%20DNA%20studies%20confirmed%20that,and%20non%2DItalic%20Nuragic%20ancestry. I also have this information from other sources.
You look Scandinavian so how Chinese, Indian, Egyptian (forget Italian and Native American) pop outs? No sense at all.
Well, first off, my mother has a dark complexion, brown eyes, almost black hair, and very much resembles a North African (Egyptian) oh, and by the way those elements of my heritage are less than 1/16th, and my great-great-grandmother, who was most likely was half Chinese had a flat nose, dark hair, and slanted eye’s. The bulk of my heritage is European. so Idk.
As someone who is from norway, stop pretending to be a Norse man considering you’re just not. Its embarrassing.
How do you know what I am? Have we met in Norway? No? Please stop embarrassing yourself @follers has documented proof that I am so Calm down
You have my support, Bearboy.
God bless you, Andrew! I’ve always thought of endorsing you as the third admin on this site.
I vote for bablah.
There is no difference between an Ethnic English person & a Scandinavian.. English people are defendants of Vikings/Saxons it isn’t that special I’m afraid. I’m blue eyed and got blonde hair it’s no big deal
No,he is born as Skarsgård
He’s sooooo yummy!!! Mmmmm mmm mmm mmmm MMMM!
