    That tale is Danish from Hans Christian Andersen. I'm preparing to sue you and a cease and desist letter has been sent to all of Germany for stealing our copyrighted material.

    Yeah, in like Italy. Italy doesn't count because people don't expect you to work more than 1-2h per week per job, and your wine probably solves all marriage/family problems for you.

    I'm an engineer and a winemaker too, but you don't hear me brag about it (mostly because I'm very bad at both).

    I'm 3 weeks into 4 months of uni holidays until my final year starts, and I'm one step away from just crawling up the walls in boredom and an absolute lack of anything to do to fill my time.
    Besides post all day with all of these poor creatures who live in the TD.

    You need to make up for your absence by nominating me for Asterix's loincloth. Akar is about to get his second medal before I do and I cannot stand for it!

    The Reich knows no bounds. Denmark is part of the Reich. No harm done.

    Isn't it sad? A superior country has an inferior neighbor that it could easily invade and swallow. Yet the superior country chooses not to. We allow Denmark to exist even though it should not exist.

    Boredom is inexcusable

    Just remember that this is probably going to be the last real summer holiday of your life.

    Inkie you're dead right, you don't realise how little time you have until you've got a real job working 8:30-5:00 5 days a week. I have to go to the gym during my lunch because i lack the willpower to go to the gym after work.

    Next year I should get about 2 and a half months, but believe me, I know. All my mates are either too busy to do anything, or just make it too difficult to try to organise anything.
    All I've been able to think of for stuff to do is
    - Learn to drive
    - Exercise more
    - Learn new skills, and read non-fiction books like history
    - Keep on bugging friends to do stuff

    I've lost interest in playing on the computer or amusing you poor deluded creatures since that just feels like a way of eating up time, rather than actually accomplishing real things.
