    o_O I was'nt kidding. May not be what we think of as a kilt today, but the Egyption battle kilt is well documented, they called it a 'shendyt' It was worn by warriors and pharohs.

    As for beer, I thought that was pretty comman knowlage.
    And lots of cultures have variations of bagpipes, the Scots just made them famous.

    I assume you are referring to the Scotti, who inhabited the north of ireland and the western part of Scotland. Their kingdom was eventually called Dal Riata and the vast majority of it was in modern day Scotland, though a small part was in Northern Ireland. I know about Dal Riata well as it's the name of my friends amateur football team (which he created). All of the kingdom of the picts came together to form Alba, which is the gaelic term for Scotland.

    It's not a big issue for me anyways as my heritage is half scottish and half irish (hence my Irish Surname etc). Going back one hundred years all my fathers side of the family were from Ireland. We're all cut from the same cloth.

    Beer predates the Egyptians, actually. It goes back to 6-7,000 years ago to Persia, Mesopotamia and the fertile crescent from what I understand.

    Krav Maga is Combat non sport MMA for Combatives & Self-Defense. It is not a martial art as kung fu styles, it is about modern tactics, techniques, combat psychology related to how survive (not to fight or win) in modern day realistic agressive physical confrontation. I hope you like one of my videos:
