Me, too. Then again, I've previously speculated that HST and Mapraputa are the same person, so maybe Anton is onto something here...

Map is Russian ?

Perhaps there has been evidences of that before my time here.

Map and HST are the same ?

I feel so sorry for you, Map. (envy the Russian bit) . I suspect Jim would rather be Russian also.

Jim Yingst:

To Anton's question, the only Russian (or rormerly Russian) poster in this thread so far is Map

Er ... "Anton Golovin" sounds a little Russian to me. So I took it as a compliment ... perhaps misappropriating it from Helen, as Map points out.

Yes, I was careless in my wording there - I meant, other than Anton, who may very well be Russian, or not, but either way I expect he knows, and wouldn't be asking about that.

So who did you think I am? Just curious.

Why an American of course.

I'd probably have placed you as Polish American not to be confused with American Polish. :roll: ( I know a handful Polish and Czech people).
Czeslaw Milosz poems has similar vibes to yours, for example.

I was joking in the first instance I should have added a after the three .

No, really.

That's better. <insert relatively inoffensive Polish-American joke of your choice/> I don't actually know any Polish-Americans who aren't at least second generation, but I'm willing to believe the first-generation Poles might be like Map. Inasmuch as anyone other than Map might be like Map.
