    I meant European Scandinavians, the ones who live in Scandinavia and speak a Scandinavian mother tongue, not Americans of Scandinavian descent...

    Ok so you actually were born in Scandinavia, but only moved to the US a few years ago? it confuses me, because you said in your introduction thread that you don't speak Norwegian, and you can only understand it by the face expression and such... if you only moved to the US years ago, how come you don't speak your language? Or were you born somewhere else? Sorry it's just a bit unclear to me.

    You are the first Scandinavian I have ever seen that calls themselves "Presbyterian". That's something you see in the US and the UK. I don't think it even exists here.

    Another thing I have noticed is that Americans often put three or more countries as their ancestry, in this case "Scotland,Norway,Finland,Denmark etc.". That is very unusual for Europeans. It makes it likely that this person is American or British since they also put Presbyterian, which would be highly unusual for a Scandinavian, to say the least.
