Do you all wrinkle up your noses like that? I assume it must be the sun reflecting off the ice sheets.

I never thought I would find myself watching chess on TV for hours at a time, but it was really exciting Very Happy What an exceptional talent he is

I once won a trophy in a juvenile chess tournament.  At the time I thought it was really impressive. Laughing

I also won a chess tournament at my school when I was younger Eldo.  

The annoying thing was that the first year when I won they had purchapsed throphies for all the participants and the winner only got first choice priveliges. The next year when I came second or third they only gave a throphy to the winner. Mad 

I think that might have played a part in giving me a deepfounded dislike of injustice. Laughing

I feel like saying that at times as well. Nod

I hope it's not getting you too down though. Smile  I know the last year of Videregående can be a bit frustrating.

Well, I could trade it out with a swearword of your choice? Shrugging Wink 

I mostly remember an impossibly large pile of assignements.

Do you get drafted into the army Norc- or is that only male Fjordian hunks they accept like Ringdrotten (so they look good in the pink uniform)

I don't know which of the various versions of me that have appeared on here I prefer.. the "hunk sergeant" or Old Anon's dubious Ringo character.. Probably Norc and Amarië's version, if I have to pick one Laughing
