If you want to try out games with a purpose go to http://www.purposegames.com/ Instead of just jumping over barrels while you shoot bad guys you can instead test your knowledge of countries, cities and more.
Another thing, at the subway today a guy sitting on the other side was obviously talking someone sitting opposite of him. At first I found his way of talking quite strange, I was never sure if he was singing or talking. Then when I had a closer look I realized that he was infact all alone, and he was sitting there singing. Not whole songs, just bits and pieces. Obviously a bit weird. Almost scarry when things like this happens, never sure what to expect of such guys...
This picture is three years old, available at http://www.norgeibilder.no It shows how much trees it was back then.
If compared with the above picture this one is taken in the down left corner facing upwards.
And this one is taken in the down right corner facing updwards. As you can see plenty of trees are now available as fire wood.
But finished is maybe a bit wrong to say, still all the trees must be chopped to fire wood. And about 400 meters of fencing needs to be done...then - we can let the horses out...
Whenever I have a hangover http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hangover the best song to listen to if you ask me is Pink Floyd "Mother". Not sure how many days I have managed to crawl into the livingroom and put this song on just to crawl back to my bed again.
Just for the record, I do not have a hangover today !!
Was surfing around earlier today when I stumbled accross this guy planning his U.K holiday based on tips he got on his Wiki http://www.mentalkipple.com/myukholiday.
Someone had tiped him about going to see the early warning sound mirrors.
A forerunner of Radar, acoustic mirrors were built on the south and northeast coasts of England between about 1916 and the 1930s. The 'listening ears' were intended to provide early warning of incoming enemy aeroplanes and airships about to attack coastal towns. With the development of faster aircraft the sound mirrors became less useful, as an aircraft would be within sight by the time it had been located, and radar finally rendered the mirrors obsolete.

We where watching the Omid Djalili-show as usual this Thursday evening. He had a joke about a judge having a special problem, he had the "Foreign accent syndrome". Afterwards he told that it is actually a real syndrome. I looked it up on Wikipedia, read more about it there http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_accent_syndrome
To the untrained ear, those with the syndrome sound as though they speak their native languages with a foreign accent; for example, an American native speaker of English might sound as though they speak with a British accent...

For those of you that are able to understand Norwegian, can you please help me explain this review of the new DVD-release of the Swedish movie "Du levande" . The review is from the latest issue of Ny Tid
50 stiliserte øyeblikk som beskriver det svenske folkehemmet. 50 utforskninger av affektene som dominerer samtiden: Tragikomikk som ikke evner å bli til melankoli fordi det ikke finnes noen underliggende mening som kan gi den grunnleggende nihilismen et anstrøk av alvor. Roy Andersen Du levande tar tråden videre fra Sanger fra andre etasje og viser at film i ytterste grad kan være kunst med filosofisk og kritisk dybde.
We watched the first episode sent on Norwegian tv today with the Omid Djalili-show. That, I must say, was a breath of fresh air! Sign me up next week for the next episode...
