Thanks for the advice to tell them I'm an American, Suetonius. Does that work for you, too? LOL !!

Works every time! But a word of warning: do NOT, by way of jest, tell them that you're Russian. They won't see the joke.

I note that a televised wedding bw georg friedrich hohenzollern and princess sophie of isenburg happened recently, and was celebrated at the sans souci palace, so they ar not gone for good.

I didn't go to the wedding, Mr. Luke Taper. They'd have to stage a whale of a parade before I'd ever think about returning to our ancestral homeland in East Prussia, (now Poland/Russia).

I don't think there are any Prussians left there at all. Besides, I never got an invitation. It probably got lost in the mail along with my invitation to Kate and Will's royal blowout in London.

The Kaiser abdicated in 1918. There's no throne to claim.

There are still lots of Hapsburgs around. One of them is an ambassador from the new republic of Georgia to Germany (I think.)

She seems to be pretty capable, although I haven't seen much about her in the news and don't recall her name.

The German lands are back to where they were 1000 years ago. Oh well, back to the drawing board. And tomorrow, the world!

You might as well give the former lands back to the original owners (Estonians, Lithuanians, and the other Baltic tribes [which includes the orignial Prussians - a Baltic tribe]). The Poles have no claim to the German lands since they were the ones that call in the Germans in the first place since the Poles were the ones that were the aggressors in expanding eastward and trying to conquer the Baltic tribes (including the orginal Prussians) and the Poles were unable to conquer the tribes.

John,

Several years back I read an article about the pretender to the Hapsburg thrown. Apparently he has a pretty good sense of humor, because when he was asked who he though was going to win the Austria-Hungary soccer match, he said "I don't know, who are we playing"?

He sounds like he'd be a great emperor, Debunker. LOL !!!!

The Hohenzollerns weren't nearly as funny.

The Irish did not ask the British to come to Ireland and who know maybe Northern Ireland will be reunited with the rest of Ireland. Then the British will have to deal with all those Irish Protestants who will flee to Britian just like the French people who left Algeria after France gave its independence to that country after fighting an eight year guerilla war.

Those Irish Protestants have been in Ulster longer than whites have been in America.
Maybe the whites will flee back to Europe - the native Americans didn't ask them to come - but I guess not.

The Irish Protestants have been in Ulster longer; however, it doesn't change the fact that they support English rule, owe their allegience to the Queen, and are view as traitors by their fellow Irish men and women.

You would also have to tell the various Central and South American governments to give back the lands that they took from the various Indian tribes within their own borders. Also when Mexican government had the lands north of the Rio Grande River, the various Indians tribes like the Apaches and Commanches did not invited the Mexicans to stay on those lands once the Spanish colonial government left Mexico.

Maybe we should all go back to Africa, or if we want to be a bit more thorough about it, the sea.

I realise I'm a couple of years late in making the point, but the Spanish pot is as black as the British kettle in Gibraltar. It's supreme irony that the Spaniards hold on to Ceuta and Mellila, exclaves similar to Gibraltar situated in North Africa. Morocco would like 'em, um, back.

It woud be nice we go back to our mothers' wombs. We didn't ask our parents to bring us into this world.

I've been trying to get back into the womb since I figured out I wasn't still in one.

Spain also holds Olivenca from Portugal after the war of the Oranges 1801, and the portuguese do want it back.
