What % do you hold in international, and why?

Here is a benchmark used by GMO (a privately held global investment management firm that manages $152 billion in client assets).
US Equities: 27.17%
International: 30.49%
Emerging Equities: 7.35%
Fixed Income: 35%
Personally? Equities in my portfolio/plan for ER, are 25% international, 75% U.S.

Internationals have been a lot of fun to have in recent years, though I really do TRY not to engage in performance chasing, especially as I get closer to ER.

I also have a tiny account that I use just to satisfy investment impulses and longings and get them out of my system, and right now it is 70% international.
