  1. Been watching the Big Lez Show as well as the Mike Nolan Show. Pretty skits, definitely recommend it~

  2. Not been watching it, only seen a few eps and I am not impressed. Do you believe in an afterlife or is it all just nothingness?
  3. She is definitely better than me at drawing and at answering quizzes about Napoleon. I would be better with other historical figures and like she says, at cooking. What song would you sing for your SO as part of a romantic setting?
  4. Fishballs (fiskibollur) What do you do at work when there is nothing to do?
  5. Hm

      Their party, their rules. It’s why you create a “ranked-choice” voting system that way independents won’t split votes with similar candidates and the political parties might reconsider running fairer contests.

      Definitely support that rather than FPtP that exists in most of our systems now.

      @Jeric That actually sounds more democratic than how Democrats run their party.

       

      This isn't the first time it's happened either. It happened to Bernie in 2016 (Not-So-Super-Delegates lost him the nomination), and I bet there are LOTS of examples before that as well. I'm sick and tired of a system where only two parties run the show and they're both absurdly corrupt and out of touch with real people.

  6. Happy birthday, I hope you have a pleasant one :grin:

  7. I was not able to find a topic about River City Girls, so I decided to go ahead and make one So yeah, you guys looking forward to one of Wayforward's next games, River City Girls? I know that I am. I'm going to be honest, I never really noticed the other River City games until River City Girls. It looks really good to me and having played Shantae Half Genie Hero, another game that Wayforward was behind, I can say I am excited.
  8. Today, an absolute madlad was buried having died at the age of 93. 

    Baldvin Tryggvason, a man of great repute here in Iceland, passed away on July 29th. 

    This guy has gone through hell of a lot. Born in Ólafsfjörður in North Center of Iceland in 1926 to poor parents who loved him greatly. He was a man of ambition who was a quick learner and determined to see his goals through. His mother wanted him to live a simple life of fisheries and get married, but he instead got enrolled for school and he was among the first in the North to do so being from a poor family. 

    This is where his first signs of him being a tough guy started showing. When he was a young adult, he got sick. He got pneumonia which was dangerous back then here in Iceland and he also got Tuberculosis which was an automatic death sentence here. He was sure he would die, but he managed to pull through and survive. With renewed vigour, he continued his studies, graduated and then married Júlía Sveinbjarnardóttir and had two kids with her later on. 

    In 1949, Iceland was set to sign the papers that would confirm the country as being a member of NATO. The communists of the country were not pleased with this and tried to block MPs from being able to get to parliament. Supporters of NATO would oppose them and the police had no control over the situation. This was often refered to as Bardaginn við Austurvöll or the Battle of Austurvöllur where NATO supporters and opposers of NATO fought each other with sticks, rocks, bottles and fists. Baldvin fought the communists and he received a glass bottle to the head. He would still fight on only feeling the pain much later as his forehead was bleeding profusely and his buddies pointed this out to him. 

    Baldvin would take part in politics, being one of the founding members of the Young Independence (Party) supporters and he would also help out with city counceling. He also had love for theater and so he worked with many writers and helped with many plays. 

    Baldvin's first wife would pass away in 1984 and he managed to cope with it because a friend managed to convince him to seek out a professional to talk with and ever since that experience, he always recommended people to seek help when they really needed it. 

    Baldvin would later remarry and that is how he would end up coming into my life as he married my grandmother who would renew his vigour as he partook in the Energy business of Iceland. 

    Having gone through many things, having seen many things and having been to many places, Baldvin's life was one hell of an adventure and he was one hell of a tough guy and a true madlad. It was pleasure having known him and I wish him the best with whatever afterlife he may be in.

  9. I played Half-Genie hero and I loved it. I bought all the other older games that are available on Steam Been playing through those as well and enjoying them and the retrofeel they bring. Also, looking really forward to Shantae 5 I am also a HUGE fan of the music, it is great. I think Hypno Baron's Castle is my favorite for Half Genie Hero, but my overall favorite OST from the Shantae series is We Love Burning Town
  10. Not everyday that you get to shake the hand of the president of Iceland

  11. We drove around Akureyri and dined at a nice restaurant. I think we played some Unstable Unicorns as well If you were given the option of moving over to your SO, would you do it (specifically looking at you distant relationships)?
  12. What work is like

      Some people seem to make it their life mission to show up at the last possible moment. I can't tell you how many times we've been dead 30 minutes before closing time, then as we prepare to lock the gates, a taxi full of tourists pulls up. :dry:

      @Dark Horse

      Oh gosh, the same happens here -_- 

      Usually it will be tourists in the 10 to 15 people who show up. But since we are located where most of the bar night life is, a lot of drunkards will also show up really late and end up holding us up to like 30-40 mins extra. The pain is real~

      Oof. I can imagine how hard it must be to get a bunch of tired, intoxicated folk to leave. Working in a museum; I generally avoid that problem, but instead I deal with the type of person who meanders around and looks at everything as slowly as possible, then gets offended when you tell them that they've run out of time and have to leave.

      Sometimes I feel like the shopkeepers in Skyrim when you hang around too long after closing.

  13. Tulsi Gabbard is the one imo, sorry Trumpians but I am fully off the Trump train. It was fun, but I hope this woman gets it~

      Tulsi Gabbard is fantastic on foreign policy, but I have too many disagreements with her domestic policies tho. 

      Trump should have picked her as Secretary of State, instead of Mike Pompeo 

  14. Drunk me goes up to a lasagna mini-restaurant: "I love lasagna, might have some"

    *Sees that everything is microwaved*

    Drunk me: "..... not having it, not eating anything that comes out of a microwave"

    Owner of the place that heard me: "Not that you can understand"

  15. Feel like beating up on some Soviet bears as based country number one, Finland. Muista Talvisota, muista Karjala~ (Feeling good indeed. Good times to be had in 2 days and in 4 days respectively)
  16. The Duck Knight Returns is my favorite episode of the DuckTales series so far. Gotta love how they brought about Negaduck back~
  17. I see that this site is not a big fan of "laughing", especially not as an emoji button.

  18. How affectionate in public? Well, I don't mind showing affection to my sweetheart here above me in public, but I don't do it very obnoxiously like some other couples may.... I think Ideal place for living together?
  19. Always a lovely thing to see

      @Twiggy

      The question would be, Vanilla or Millenium Dawn Mod? 

    3. Twiggy

      Twiggy

      Probably Millenium Dawn to start with. Considering that Iceland is just straight up Denmark I think you have to fuck around with console commands to actually be able to play as it. I'll play with it a bit and see if I can manage.

      This is oddly fitting since I actually met what for me is the first Antifa supporting person outside internet :ooh: And he denied they do things like this and said right is the one doing the violence. 

      'What a timing :maud:

  21. Being a Centrist is rather exhausting.

  22. Iceland, my country, has one of the worst songs for Eurovision this year~

      At least it's different! :ticking: Most of them sound like the exact same song played over and over... :mellow:

  23. As stated before, we don't play that many games, but we have played games such as Serious Sam, quiz games and then of course Transformice where I betri with balloon! Is politics something that is discussed between you or is it a subject that you think is best left out between you two?
