FUN VIDEO clip highlighting the similarities between Old English and Frisian. Friesland is a region in the Netherlands, a region where many old Anglo-Saxon tribes lived. Some of these people migrated to Britain about the 5th century and brought the beginnings of Old English with them. (I once watched a movie in Frisian and by the end of it I think I was understanding 60% of what they were saying.) ~ link

"These adventurous types prefer action-oriented, concrete problems rather than dealing with thought-provoking, ambiguous, abstract dilemmas. Fields of interest include mechanical, construction, and outdoor careers. They might also enjoy working with machines, tools, and equipment to repair or build something."
