    Welcome! I just hope you came here to enjoy rather than disrupt. We get a lot of disrupters here so we will probably be standoffish at first.

    I have a tendency to distrupt both sides.

    I am allergic to any group thinking phylosophies however I agree there should be respect and a somewhat level of loyality to the place that any individual lives in.

    Also exchanging different views allows for those views to be calibrated, to find a middle point and not take the road of political extremism.

    You drink ice cold lager and you live in a place that freezes over 6 months of the year. Strange.

    Hello and welcome.

    I used to be middle of the road & liked talking about other views. Now days I'm much more like the left in that my mind is mostly closed. And that's about the ONLY way I'm like the left.

    My dad lived in the Transylvanian region of Romania under the man of the people Ceausescu.

    One day at university they called him in the office and 1 militia/securitatea member was there.

    This is how the conversation went:


    Communist:
    "We heard you were telling jokes about Ceausescu". And they gave him the piece of paper with the joke:


    Is 6 am in the morning, Ceausescu gets up - Everyone needs to get up
    Is 6:15 am in the morning, Ceausescu is brushing his teeth - Everyone needs to brush their teeth
    Is 6:30 in the morning, Ceausescu is exercising - Everyone needs to exercise
    Is 7 am in the morning, Ceausescu is sitting to eat breakfast - FOR EVERYONE ELSE: MUSIC (no food).
