    Like a stick of rock,

    Well, Scottish-american.

     Americans have a tendency to declare their ethnic backgrounds as their nationalities. The reality, of course, is that I am an American, but one of Scottish descent. Scottish. Not Irish. Nothing wrong with being Irish, I'm just not, and I hate hearing the words "Oh, so...

    We could have had real,

    Yayy Scotland but boo the weather

    but yeah I'm Scottish but what I don't get is that others think we have a different language? Unless you get mixed up because of Gaelic which I just now get? Haha but it's not really common and we just use words differently or whatever?

    I think its shocking

    that some yes voters (not all) are calling no voters cowards, they should respect the fact that its what the majority of people wanted. If it was a yes vote that won I wouldn't call yes voters "cowards" and "fools", I would respect the decision of the majority!

    as planned. And on the day of the result, I was pretty scathing about what that implied about the people of Scotland, but I'm a bit less harsh, today. Still very angry about the underhand tactics and the scaremongering and still very frustrated that people voted to opt for the...
