    I haven't seen anything about Krav Maga in Scotland, but you guys missed out on possibly getting apartments in a nice section of Moscow the other night. For some reason Kevin removed those threads...

    You didn't really - guys are just doing some good-natured joking with you. It was all Krav Maga on the recent posts section of the forum for a short while...

    KravMaga is a great way to get people to stop making fun of your kilt.

    Heres an interesting lil snippet from QI: clan tartans are a very recent idea, which came about during the 19th century when Scotland became associated with the royal family, especially Queen Victoria. Tartans were not related to families, and the idea of family or clan tartans were mainly the ideas of tartan salespeople wanting to sell their stock. The word originates from the French "tiretain", and was originally worn as a long robe over one shoulder. The shorter "skirt" kilt was an English invention. An Englishman called Rawlingson who owned an iron foundry in Scotland thought it would be a simpler and quicker thing to put on.

    Bet ya never knew the kilt was invented by an Englishman!

    I don't believe that's 100% true. I was in the national gallery in Edinburgh last week and there were lots of paintings from the 1600s and 1700s from Scottish painters that showed Scotsman wearing kilts. I imagine the whole thing about each family having a kilt back then could be a lot of BS though.

    There's definitely a chance it was created by an Englishman or Irishman though. Wikipedia contradicts what QI says - I'm not sure which is right (if any).
