Extremely low quality article, laughable to think that an editor feels this was worth paying somebody to "write". At least give some detailed insight (opinion, essentially) to expand on each of these "myths".

Miraculous. First attempt and it turned out fluffy and delicious. This despite using margarine in place of butter, a mix of regular and brown sugar in place of castor, and guesstimating the quantities of flour and milk due to a lack of measuring implements.

I can bake. Who knew? Next time a little w33d in there.

If ever anyone looked like a serial killer, it's him.

This can only end in unsavoury blood soaked scandal if you ask me.

I've been rather disappointed with the quantity of wildlife in Sweden since I moved here. In 4 long (long) years I have seen a mere four squirrels, a small handful of deer, a few tiny frogs, a solitary fast moving snake and a veritable shitload of snail and slug varieties. My longterm dream of seeing and fleeing a wolverine remains unsatiated, and a brush with a fox or wolf is something I have given up even contemplating. To be frank, a moderately wide array of slow moving garden slimes is not what I was hoping for when I moved here, head aflutter with tales of Every Man's Right and forest / lake saturation. A part of me hopes to stumble upon a litter of bear cubs, if only for the adrenaline rush of copping a maternal claw to the side of my noggin and being torn asunder aside a cave-like dwelling.

Perhap's it's just the west coast.

Yep, I am rather stunned but delighted. We got direct flights with Seat 24 via destination.se to the heart of Visby, 55 minutes each way for 3600kr return combined for both of us. I nearly shat my dacks.

Get into it, couch-bound svensk ideologists.

Ave

Going to head over to Gotland for a week in the middle of June, from here in Göteborg. Have any of you voracious travellers made it out to Gotland at all? Preliminary investigations suggest we'd be best served making our way to Oskarshamn and taking a ferry from there to Visby. Swebus journeys from Göteborg to Oskarshamn are a minimum of 9 hours however, which is a little intimidating. Are flights from the mainland at all common practice? Would ordinarily hav thought Kalmar a nice stop for a night but it doesn't appear to have the connections to the island that Oskarshamn has.

Any tips on reaching this isolated yet quite glorious looking medieval slice of Sverige appreciated. It looks a good place to get around on by bicycle, we won't be renting a car or anything. Aside from exploration as we go, any true must see areas o the island that one might ordinarily not reach if based in Visby and not looking further afield (north in particular)?

Any and all suggestions may prove useful. Cheers.

Chris Cairns took Lalit Modi to court when he was dropped from IPL list on the reason that Cairns has a past record of Match fixing. This is what has come out, who know what else goes around.

You're saying, or Modi was saying that Cairns has a previous record of match fixing?

Either way, that's completely unsubstantiated as far as I am aware.

Our glorious 2000 ICC Trophy defeat of your arch nemesis India was as glorious as any cricket performance seen since the days of W G Grace.

Wasim definitely sodomized our batting lineup in a brutal way that, and numerous other seasons. Waqar was possibly even more penetrative than Wasim, and whil none of our batsmen were children per se, they were certainly reamed in a bad way by the pair. Full credit, etc.

20/20 trophies are rubbish, as worthy of joyous celebration as winning a marbles competition against the spotty ginger kid in primary school.

Attn: Mahmood : Pakistan's cricket team are of a distinctly low quality, and a vast majority of their players are involved in paedophilia with especially young children. Double shame.

Thanks.

Be it in our own countries, or here in Sweden, one thing unites us all; it is clearly going to suck to get old.

I just signed up with Telia as I was swayed by the box they installed in all apartments in my building. This will result in a fibre line of guaranteed 8-10mbps both up and down for 323kr per month, free router and wifi etc etc. I was quoted 299kr in the Telia shop in Nordstan on Saturday, but naturally enough this did not equate to the "new price" which was implemented a fortnight ago according to their phone jockey. I mean really, is there any level of business or beaurocracy in this country where information is the same across all department levels and sites?

Anyway. Gonna be hitting those Pirate Bay torrents hard.

One thing you can do is to change your eating habits: alkalize your body.


Please elaborate, specifying which exact food items will achieve this.
