      but i think birth place can be more important than ancestors in certain cases
      I'm inclined to disagree with that statement. My mother was born in Sivas, which is in Asia. Her younger siblings were born in the European side of Istanbul. Does that make her siblings European, despite having come from the same Asian mother and father? No, I do not think so myself.

      I'm interested as to know what these 'certain cases' are.

      eurasian doesnt settle it at all!
      As a general term, I think it does. Of course, the individual may differ.

          My father is from Cyprus (Paphos/Baf) and my mother from Turkey (Sivas), therefore I suppose that I am Asian (if we define 'Asian' to be associated with the continent). But the word 'Asian', in Britain, is often used to term those from so-called 'South Asia' (i.e. India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, etc.)

              The part in bold is not true. There are people who dispute whether Great Britain is part of Europe. It's no longer connected to the continent's greater land mass. However, I am not one of these 'people'. I was merely questioning your usage of a word used to describe such certainty.

              Yes, I was born and raised in 'Europe', but that does not make me an 'ethnic European'. Although this is an exaggerated example on merely a cultural level, imagine that I had Nigerian parents and then gloated I was 'European'.

              This isn't an easy question to answer. :laugh:

              On the western coast, a significant number of the inhabitants are what I like to describe as 'Islamified Greeks'. This is perhaps the least conservative part of the country which also in turn leads to people associating this part of the country with having the 'hottest girls'. However, in other parts of the country, where the women may in fact be far more attractive, they are more conservative and thus it is nigh on impossible to judge them as sexual objects so that we may compare and contrast them with their 'cousins' from Bodrum.

              Are you implying that Turks take their exam period more seriously than the other ethnic cliques? :holmes:

              would you count them as european or african if one parent was nigerian and the other "typically" european?
              or if all granparents were african but parents were born and brought up in the uk?
