Hi all, As I glanced briefly at this September issue of the BBC Focus magazine today I saw a message I hadn't noticed before... The article 'The Ghosts in Your Genes' is about how our ancestors character trades can be passed on in our genes. Do you 'see' what I see? :-) Lurking greetings, ingi

Thank you so much, Sally - very much appreciated! This is the right stuff. From what I've read on Amazon I gather that this is exactly what I was hoping to receive from this forum post of mine - thanks again! I'll keep you informed on what will develop from this :) My very best, Ingi

Hi Forumers, Could any of you guide me to books about the use of imagery by the Egyptians and other old-world cultures? I'm a sequential artist wanting to explore how the ancients used imagery to communicate information and knowledge. This interest of mine has been bubbling up for some time now - I've been calling it "tickled memory" because it's been coming to me as a itch in the ba

Hi! I remembered this thread as I did this cartoon yesterday, for today's newspaper - so I thought it would fit nicely here :-) Relevant article: Zoo says Knut, no longer cute, must go... Published in the Icelandic newspaper DV (in Icelandic of course). Greetings to all, Ingi

The One who lives near or next to another borrowing law. Would also be known as the "3rd strike, you're out! - borrowing law" The law: When borrowing from a neighbor, you can only borrow certain equipment 2 times before being forced by 'this law' to buy yourself the very same equipment. {Fluids and other baking material fall under the '3rd strike, I'm annoyed law'}

This is a quick story about the bond formed between a little girl and a group of building workers. It makes you want to believe in the goodness of people and that there is hope for the human race. A young family moved into a house next door to an empty plot. One day Joe, Steve and a gang of building workers turned up to start building a house. The young family's 5-year-old daughter naturall

Just have to share this one with you guys/galls :-) Rain of Madness It's a promotional site for the movie Tropic Thunder, but with a life of its own. Please check out the second video (with the guy in the tub) - it reminds me a lot of some of the posts on this forum ...or at least how I feel when I read them ;-)

Hoi Jaap, - Apology excepted ...and might I add that I have thought similar about people/nations who treat animals wrongly - guess 'we' as a whole tend to generalize when we are confronted with disturbing images of animals/people being treated badly - at least I catch myself doing it a lot - so I'm no moral angel in these matters :) Yub, there are some crazy Icelanders driving Mutated Jeeps up

Hoi Jaap, I must say that I find your generalization of the Icelandic people a little bit narrow minded. While I lived in Arnhem (for 8 years) the following took place: - Drive-by shooting at the local café where I lived. - Body found in the Rijn in 3 plastic bags. - Body found in the Rijn in a suitcase with head missing. - Friend robbed on the street three times (bad karma that) - My computer

Well, here I can give a little inside info, finally I come to some use on this forum :-) I've been following this in the Icelandic media online. The first bear was shoot by a local policeman because the bear was heading for some local farms - but it is generally recognized that the killing was a big mistake. The whole Icelandic media went in big 'who to blame mode' after the killing took place

Sad to say, I don't really leave the house that much - since I work from home. - but that is not to say that I don't :-) I do my daily jail-house-workout* at home to keep fit and go for walks with a couple of my friends ones a week. In 2001-2004 I lived in Iceland where I walked every day* to/from work for 1 hour through nature, it was the best way to start/finish the day (of course some days

Hi Michael, In short: Yes they do. The Sugarcubes were a hit back home and a fresh wind for the whole music scene, way back then - so the group did become a house hold name (Sykurmolarnir) and the most popular songs are still played on the radio. Glíngló is one of Iceland's most sold albums ever and is still selling good ...personally I do like it a lot! Somehow it fits Björk to sing the Jazz.

Hi Deb, "Many times people are self medicating...." This is very true, however there can come the time when the physical craving for the stuff kicks in and people loose control over their drinking, and though they weren't stamped alcoholics before, can venture into that realm. Then some are just hardwired to drink as much as they can from the very beginning. Some of my old friends fr

Right on the money, Luke :-) ...only that this guy went back to the states, helped his friend - and that friend brought the message to Bill W. who together with another man started AA. The bitter-sweet trouble with AA is that it is indeed a spiritual program ...and that is not often the first thing a full flung alcoholic has in mind when he/she enters AA :-) The 12 steps of AA are based largel

The main problem with alcoholism is that an none-alcoholic will never truly understand an alcoholic. If you have no trouble at all with alcohol - you are trying to understand something you have no idea about - no experience. Let's take 'sex' for instance. I come to you and tell you that I just had the most satisfying and exciting sexual encounter in my life! - But you've never done IT! How ar

Yub, it's the real deal, man! And Thunderbird, the e-mail client, is also super-nice with all kinds of plug-ins. The spell check is just the best. I'm writing on Icelandic, English and Dutch message boards frequently and it's just such an easy way of spell checking ...being the dyslexic I am :) You have to try out PicLens plug-in/program: Kveðja, Greetings, Groeten, ingi

Hi Milo, So called 'alcoholics' come in many different versions, when you really break it down, but to the outsider it's most often the one that has made a big mess of things that gets the stamp 'alcoholic'. In short, the 'real' alcoholic is someone who drinks because alcohol 'does something for them'. It changes the way they feel - makes them feel normal - more real! In a very twisted way it i

The forum is very nice as it is, but since I have the change to add something... ...here goes... 1 - The choice of being able to call up a page with all the latest discussions from the whole forum. 2 - Simple BBcode (I think that's what it's called) when writing a message, to place Images, make text Bold and so on. That's it! Greetings, ingi

oef! Yeah, that's not good! - you would have had to choose the 'leave messages on server' before downloading the mail - I have been trough this myself some years ago.

Hi Jonny, Thunderbird from Mozilla is a very good mail client - and you can add plug-ins to it just as with the Firefox browser (like; calendar and such). It can access IMAP ..in short = it just works the way you want it to, believe me it does :) I use it for 3 different Gmail accounts and about 4 other mail addresses of mine - I don't use Hotmail, but it should work. Have fun with it, ingi
