I go to the quiz at Pickwicks (in Malmö) every Wednesday night. Depending on who's doing the quiz it can be quite fun.

I also host a quiz at Bishops Arms near Malmö station every second Sunday. That's tomorrow. At 18:00. Be there. cool.gif

Yes, passengers are allowed to drink.
In the past, I've hesitated - about to guzzle down a near-full half-litre of beer - before my non-drinking friends have told me that I can get in the car, as it's legal. And the drivers were people who really don't drink much at all, and are quite against any kind of public consumption.
Makes sense to me, anyway: if you get pulled over, the driver is breathalysed; who cares if the others are drunk? This is one area in which the Swedes have got things right.
Mobiles ("cells") though - oh dear, oh dear, oh dear...

Boo!

Just thought I'd stop in. To answer the question, I stopped coming here simply because, well, I guess I got bored with it and could no longer find much motivation or fun, in contributing or even visiting.

The changes that were made to the forum weren't really that big a deal to me. I think it was more things like the seemingly endless threads of pro- and anti-Islam (complete with mind-numbingly large numbers of YouTube links posted to add "legitimacy" to ludicrous claims). There was that, and it all just became a bit tedious in general - too many people just flaming each other - not my scene.

I also had a load of work on at the time when I left. Unfortunately, I haven't got much work these days, but I'm getting by - just about.

And one thing that I'd always found annoying is contributors making a huge song and dance about leaving the forum, saying big sobbing and/or vitriolic goodbyes - blah-blah-blah - only to come back on here within a week bitching about something someone had written, and not really ending up leaving anyway. Yawn.

So, I decided that I just didn't feel like being here anymore, and slipped quietly away. No offence to anyone, of course. I'm not saying I'll never become a regular again, but nor am I saying that I intend to make any kind of huge comeback either.

Oh, and by the way, I did indeed get a small role in a film. It's only a total of seven lines (in English with a German accent - hahaha), and you'll only probably see me on screen for a total of ten seconds (absolute max.), but it was a good laugh. It's called Odjuret, it's by the same guys who did Fjorton Suger and should be out sometime after the summer (September or October).

I still blog a bit and play with my blues/rock cover band CSI: Helsingborg.

Anyway, I actually do have an assignment to be getting on with, so ciao for now, guys. I miss many of you. I'm not too hard to get ahold of if you ever want to catch up properly!

Later...

Anyone have any experience with them here in Sweden?

If any of you groovy Local readers will be in the Helsingborg area this Friday night (i.e. tomorrow, at the time of writing), feel free to come along to Pub Punkten to watch CSI: Helsingborg play live.

It's free, the beer is relatively cheap (less than 40 kronor), and the atmosphere at a CSI: Helsingborg gig is always electric (or at least battery-operated - it's OK, we have a recharger).

Bring friends, family, and especially grandparents (one of our guys is into that - not me, mind) for a rockin' experience you won't forget (Disclaimer: unless you have Alzheimers).

See you there!
(Disclaimer: maybe)

I'll be heading to Pickwicks on Wednesday evening to participate in their Quiz Night there, so if anyone's interested in joining forces, please come along.

I was there last week, but didn't realise that it starts at 20:30 (I got there just before 21:00).
Just as well; myself and Ms Q listened to the remainder of the questions, and reckoned that we only got about five or six correct between us.

So, if you're clever, in Malmö, and fancy something a bit different, come along this Wednesday.

OK?

When I was a kid, walking down the street with my mum (formerly known as mom), I noticed some severely mentally disabled kids walking strangely and making weird mumbling sounds. When I asked bout them, mother said that they're "special".

So, Miss Kitten, do you walk strangely and make weird mumbling sounds? If so, I'm sure my mother would agree that you are indeed special.

BUMP!

OK, I'm soon to be en route. Looking forward to this evening.

Once again, I've said 7:00 p.m. but it appears that some will be there from 6:00. We may even be there by 6:00 as well. Whoever wants to turn up by then, I'm sure there'll be someone there with whom to down a beer or two.

Later...

What you don't see in the photo above is the super multi-pram containing his four most recent offspring right at his waist-level. And did you know this shot was taken at an outdoor café in Möllan in Malmö?

I think I know one kind man who may have serious seminal leakage issues after viewing certain fine Christian "virtues".

QUOTE (voidplay @ 3.Jun.2009, 05:11 PM) *
I was at the hammarkullen karnival and in the arena area, and a mother had 2 cigarettes in a row all the with her child by her side. At this rate the child would start having most smoker's problems before he/she reaches 15.
It doesn't need a law for a mother to be concerned about her child's health but then people are what they are they generally don't give a damn about anything.


What does bad parenting have to do with people smoking in an outdoor restaurant/bar area? And we aren't talking about having children present here. I occasionally see people getting shit-faced drunk while "looking after" their offspring. Is this better?
Oh, sorry, is this irrelevant?

You don't like people smoking in (permitted) outdoor seating areas, fine. But what's your post supposed to convey? That you had one bad experience with an irresponsible mother? Ooh - never seen that before...

until I found out how much I would be taxed. 75%.


Total myth!

Check it out properly. You're obviously including the additional 25% "moms" (VAT) in your calculation, which is silly.

If you charge, say, 900 kronor per hour, you always say that it's excluding moms... Then you charge moms on top, which goes to the tax office, so it really should enter the equation.
It helps to have an accountant as well - well worth it.
