I first jointed FunTrivia when I was in the 13-20 category, now I am in the 21-30 category. FT (and it's members) were there for me when things weren't so good. Random conversations and fun chats in the chat room made my days much happier. Thank you FT!


I was in the 13-20 category when I joined too. Now I'm in the 31+ group.

I've jumped two age categories since I joined as I was at the end of one for my first year. I'm still middle aged (51-60). And absent minded as I noticed I already mentioned that last year. But that didn't come with age.

He used to send me some very nice messages. Sometimes you really can get to know people fairly well without meeting them as he seemed to get me quite accurately.

Thanks, Sue I found the results helpful and interesting. I have studied demographics for decades.
It would seem that I am in the largest age demographic 51- 60.
There are many people who seem to have a truly impressive education, formal and informal.

I have been on FT since 2001. So I went from 31-40 to 51-60. Still Canadian and male though.

Technically I joined in 2003, I was 26 but I believe I was here for probably less than five minutes then came back in 2009 at 32. 43 this June. Been here regularly since 2009, though. This website is the third longest website I've been a continuous member of, and the only one I haven't been banned from. The other two are imdb.com (been a member there for almost 21 years) and allpoetry.com (also around 20-21 years.) Actually, thinking about it: this is the only website I've never been banned from. That's a record. I'm highly opinionated, doesn't bode well most places. I try to keep that in check here. It's not easy.

Anyway, I like it here. This place helps keeps me calm, and I am not typically a calm person.

I know this poll is from yonks ago but have only just seen it. Well, I have only just joined these 'ere forums and am just having a look around. Nationality - what if a person has dual nationality? Would they put where they were born or where they live now?

Just wondering...

As you say, it is way out of date and was just a fun thing.

Interesting point, I guess that a person would put the nationality which they related to mostly. For instance, take Shamima Begum who has been stripped of her British citizenship, it could be done because she wouldn't be stateless as she could have automatic Bangladeshi citizenship through her mother, I am sure that if she had to say which nationality she was would say British since she was born there and had never visited Bangladesh.

I would perhaps assume that many Israelis who were born elsewhere but have moved to Israel and taken up citizenship would probably chose Israel rather than their roots.

That has set me thinking - would Shamima Begum automatically have Bangladeshi citizenship because her mother was from there? Would she not have to have been registered with Bangladesh High Commission in England to be registered as a citizen of that country? I know that my daughter had to register my first three grandchildren, who were born in Israel, they had to be registered with the British Embassy in order to get British nationality - [she had another two after they boogered back to England so those two only have British citizenship].

As for me - I have not been in contact with any expats for many years now so I honestly do not know what they think. I do have dual nationality with both British and Israeli passports - both of which expired many years ago and I have no reason to renew either again. The only document that is necessary for me is my Israeli ID card, and yes, I consider myself Israeli and not a British expat. I was 43 years old when I came here 35 years ago so have spend nearly half my life here, and cannot imagine what it would be like to live in England again.

And because I have lived on a very small agricultural moshav for the last 25 years and not in a town, and am not in contact with any of my family, this is really the only life that has any meaning for me - this is Home, with a capital 'H'.

Funny maybe , but I feel that way about living here in Hong Kong, even though it is slightly messed up! Been here 45 years and I have Hong Kong Citizenship. No intention of returning to England either.
Incidentally we all wear masks outside . We have had 7 deaths to date. Population 7 million.
Stay safe all.

Everyone is supposed to wear masks outside here as well, but unfortunately too many people ignored the regulations, lockdown was eased too soon, so the numbers are increasing rapidly and it is quite possible that there will be a full lockdown again. At the moment there is only a full lockdown in a relatively few areas with a partial lockdown in others - not that it will make any difference to me as I have not been out of my home since 3 March. That was all of 50m to the little shop across the road and even then, before lockdown, they would not let me go in, so the furthest I have been since then is to take my rubbish out to my wheelie bin, which is all of about a metre from my front door! And the way things are going it looks like I will not be able to go out for the foreseeable future.

Tikva is on a 12m tether which is fixed just inside the door, so she can go out and come in as she wants - she is not used to going out for walks and gets more than enough exercise chasing about as she does, and she has to be on a tether as my yards are not fenced.

Ilive in a small village on the coast which is invaded by `people from Madrid. 100 euro fine for not wearing a mask outside. The police cannot catch everybody so I keep my distance from them.
