The worst is when people actually SAY things like "jk" or "lol". I threaten them every time.

Sorry, there's no proper Pict smiley.   Besides, that one probably resembles the real Wm. Wallace at least as much as it does Mad Mel.

Fierce and heavily tattoed.  Possibly naked.

Y'all are far to willing to indulge a Liberal Arts graduate's tendency to write long complicated
answers to short simple questions.

How could one contain within the tiny space that is a message-board emoticon the complexity
of what we know, what we don't know, and what we believe about the people who occupied
Scotland before the Scots came from Ireland? 

Just for example, I like to think they wore tattoos, but even that is:
1) tough to demonstrate in a smiley, and 2) possibly wrong.

Whoa! Hold yer horses- we only borrowed the gaelic language- the irish never "came over" to Scotland. In fact for much of the last 10 centuries we have had stronger relations with Holland, Poland and Italy (Scottish-Italo being my sub-group on the scottish census). The Scots and Irish have long been unified by a common hate of english repression. We are every close yet keep our disance- The troubles were a result of the Scots getting too friendly with the Irish folk and settling over there.

Plus, William Wallace was post-gaelic influence- he lived in the times of the highland clearances that us Scots are still so sore about.

Sorry- I'm too patriotic.

Actually, at some point in (most probably) the 3rd Century, raiders from Ireland, the Scots,
established a permanent settlement in/near modern Argyll, just north of the Antonine Wall.
Over the centuries, they overran, and were overrun by the Picts, and fought frequently with
the Romans, and later Northumbrian tribes, to their South.  It wasn't until the 9th Century
that Scottish and Pictish monarchy were permanently united.  Pictish language, while very
poorly documented, appears to be closer linguistically to Welsh and even Gaulish (as in
"France" way back when) than the Celtic language of the Irish and early Scots. 

If ya go back far enough, we're all descended from immigrants.
