Any Baronet in a right mind had burned such records long time ago. I am sure of it sir.

Don't know what else should be expected. What real prince with family property would be looking for a wife on a reality tv show?

A couple of dead broke royals I know would slit their wrists before they made a show like that.

If they were White Russians, then I wouldn't be too surprised...

I am no expert on Italian history, but I always had the impression that there were quite a few broke-ass people with hereditary Italian titles. Perhaps that's just a misconception I developed after reading The Leopard in college, and from knowing a guy (whose father worked for a living) who was presumptive heir to an Italian duchy.

im no history expert but i picked up somewhere that in italy there are ten times as many 'Princes' as in any other state largely because when Bonaparte occupied Italy in 1790 smething he ennobled anyone who was prepared to back the occupation. Although the Borghese name itself goes back i think centuries further. Any italian history experts out there who can either correct me or confirm?

Anyway i agree the saying 'you can take the boy out of rome but you cant take the rome out of the boy' doesnt apply here one jot. And i doubt he could even say 'sprezzatura' if it was shown to him on a big billboard. Let alone show it....

He looked like hed been dressed by the tv station.

I'm related to Andrew Jackson by marriage... doesn't that get me a cabinet position, or head of the CIA or something?

God fearing? Are you serious? Have you seen the size of that guy? Man, if he got pissed off, he could mess my sh*t up in a second!

Hell yeah I'm afraid. He tears the roofs off houses, smites people, and juggles lighting bolts with his bare hands. Not to mention he's the only guy I know who can knock a man unconcious, remove a RIB, I mean like cut that thing right out of his body, and make a whole other person out of it. I mean, thats some guerilla cloning crap if I've ever seen it. Totally on par with those Chinese black market organ thieves.

I heard that one time, he told this dude to take his first-born son up on top of a mountain, and then commanded him to kill his son. I mean, seriously... the guy was about to do it, cause God is a scary S.O.B. and then just as he was about to get all crazy and stab his son to death with a knife, God was all " Naw dude, I was just joking. It was like totally a test". That is COLD. The man has a twisted sense of humor, ice water in his veins, and a penchant for rolling through hoods with a posse carrying flaming swords.

Plus I'm pretty sure he stole my lunch money once.

Does being a Quaker count? I'm officially one of those.
