I can feel myself getting 'sucked in' to this thread!! I know what you are saying Bob but I think the amount of sunshine you get in Ireland is only a 'part of it', I think that a persons skin colour and skin tone probably has more to do with it? For example as a Scot Sean Connery never came accross as being particularly pale? Perhaps blond people are more pale skinned than brunettes but even then the skin tone of a blond varies a lot. I think the only thing you can say with some certainty is that red heads are pale skinned and therefore I think it likely that a red head in California will have paler skin than a brunette in Dublin despite the yearly difference in sunshine amounts, and because people of all hues are pretty mixed in this world it will be difficult to pinpoint the place in the world where the people are the palest people on earth.
