    Although I have a British EU passport and was born here, and my genes go back here to pre-British times,

    I feel more Japanese than anything else, I like the outfits, ideally I think I would be a Japanese American living
    in California.
    Given it a bit more thought.
    Still think the same, I mean how to you "feel" a nationality or culture?

    I like the idea of sun sea techno gadgets and sea food cooking on a bar-b-q on a beach - but I don't know what that is as a nationality...

    How do you lot go about this "feeling" thing?

    Well that sort of proves my point. I thought it was Japanese Mix with Californian.. Whereas you thought it was the other side of the world -

    So my point is how do you know that you feel British or European - just look at the above example - you could be wrong by about 5,000 miles or more.
