    Eh, the Amish don't pasteurize their milk as an entire community, so while I think it's weird at best for an outsider it's never really bothered me.

    I'm talking about the raw milk movement, not the Amish. The Raw Mild crowd are separate group of brainwashed farmers, and altogether stupider.

    Fair enough. :) Can't say as I've really heard about that movement myself, which is why I jumped to the Amish first since I'm fairly familiar with them.

    Well I'm white, I call myself Italian but I'm really half Italian, half Swiss.

    Sounds like placing an order for cheese at the deli.

    Oh, you should look them up; the idiocy is spectacular! They think pasteurization is the height of evil, that it corrupts milk and makes it bad for you. My half-sister is one, and the height of her irresponsibility came when she happily consumed raw milk, eggs, cheese, and meet whilst pregnant. Or at least I thought that was the height of irresponsibility, until my new nephew was born and she revealed herself to be an antivaxer. For the record, this isn't the wonderful sister and nephews whom I post pictures of all the time!

    So sad ... I'm the only Asian/Filipino on the BBS? ;)

    To be more precise, my deep, deep ancestors were originally from Eastern China. I submitted a DNA sample to the Genographic Project a couple of years ago and had my paternal side analyzed.

    Haplogroup O (M175)

    I guess I fall under the category of Austronesian/Malayo-Polynesian.

    The appropriate expression is "D'oh!" A deer. A female deer.


    Well, the Swiss are all something else anyway, right? I mean, there's French Swiss, German Swiss and Italian Swiss.


    Jesus Christ, if she's so opposed to all the advances in public health over the past couple of centuries, why doesn't she hunt and gather her own food and live in a cave?


    You green people are the greatest. You're all such good dancers. And your women are HOT!

    Eeevil pasteurization... :evil: Just so strange.

    So like whole-food folks on steroids? Raw meat, ugh... although the antivax thing, gah!

    At least they speak the language and are familiar with the culture, which is more than many people who call themselves "Italians" (i.e. Americans with maybe an Italian great-grandfather) do.

    You're preaching to the choir telling me that.

    To be fair, there is a pretty distinct Italian-American culture on some parts of the states, but I get what you're saying.

    I just submitted my DNA sample to 23andMe, primarily to take part in medical research, but they also provide ancestry info. I think that's going to be fascinating, but I'm disappointed that I can get only the maternal side analyzed. My father's deceased, I don't have a brother, and I don't have a Y chromosome of my own.

    Suisses Romands, not French Swiss. Or at least say francophones Swiss.

    ^My parents are planning to have a DNA sampling done. My mom's family history is very interesting (see my earlier post in the thread) to say the least!

    While true, Italian-American culture isn't the same thing as Italian culture. And I say this as an Italian-American (ish) who does speak Italian (that I had to learn in school, but at least my Grandfather spoke Italian). Although my family is from Northern Italy and far removed from the Italian-American culture, which is pretty firmly meridionale.

    ^Oh, I know, and I agree entirely. I was just pointing out that saying one is "Italian" in America actually does often carry some meaning, unlike a lot of other distant heritages white people are fond of referencing. I get really annoyed at people who cite their Cherokee ancestry, for example, when it was, like iguanas example, a great-great-great-great-great-grandmother and they have no clue what it means to be Indian.

    Fair enough, good point.
