Well, I thought that I could finally tell something about myself. These are mostly "liberated" from Corribus's Long List.


Age: 26
Sex: M
Ethnic Background: White
Nationality: Finnish
Occupation: University Student/Postal Worker
Height: 1,76 (metres)
Religion: Christian (although not a holy man by any standards, this I confess)
Zodiac: Scorpio
Siblings: 2 (1 brother and 1 sister)
Marital Status: Married (happily)
Origin of my handle: Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time minor character
Favorite Video Game (Console) : Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES)
Favorite Video Game (PC) : Heroes of Might and Magic III (Complete)
Favorite Color: Green (I agree with Colonel Muammar al-Gaddafi and Napoleon I of France)
Favorite School Subject: History
Favorite Alcoholic Beverage: Bailey's, Vodka
Favorite Beer: Domestic Finnish Beers by the Olvi company
Things I hate: Getting up early in the morning, violence, arrogant world leaders who think that God told them to attack another countries
Personality Flaws: Short temper, occasional laziness
Languages spoken: Finnish (native), the mandatory Swedish, also English
Something that irritates me: Arrogance, "I don't care" attitude of people
One thing I hope to accomplish in my life: to overcome my life-long pessimism and cynicism which at present are killing me
Virtue I cherish most: Loyalty, Honesty, Friendship, use of Diplomacy
Virtue I wish I had more of: Bravery, Honesty
Antivirtue which I fear the most: Backstabbing
Most precious thing in my life: Life itself, to enjoy life is a noble art

Additional information:

Political opinions: I consider myself a modest revolutionary with conservative ideas
Political parties I vote: from the center to the right on the grand scale,
generally speaking I oppose extreme ideologies but more so those of the left than those of the right. I'm interested in politics but at the same time not interested to vote in general elections. Nice paradox, isn't it?
Favourite TV-shows: "Babylon 5", " 'Allo, 'Allo ", The Simpsons, Quantum Leap, Stargate SG-1
Heroes class I most identify with: Cleric, Knight ("another Castle lover", as Banedon put it)
Instruments I play: none
My hobbies: turn-based strategy games, studying history, philosophy and different cultures, reading a lot of scientifically correct history and, surprisingly, mythology and pseudo-historical articles and novels and books with a slight occult flavour such as prophecy, especially those by St. Malachy and Nostradamus
Smoking: a firm "No!"
Drinking: I don't spit into my glass (or the bottle)
Sleeping rythm: 5 hours a night, also 3 hours after work
Insomniac: yes, especially during my winter time heavy depression
Some sort of personal record of mine in any field whatsoever:
stayed up 24 hours in a row logged in to a Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time fan site called WoTA.com writing messages and chatting with fellow fans. Some of the members there said it was due to lunacy, some said I was simply being stubborn. The truth is I had way too much free time in my hands back then (2003).
Mapmaker: Heroes III and it's expansions. I'm a well-known perfectionist who can happily spend 12 to 18 months with a single map.

Me and my wife Tiare love animals and thus it is no wonder to find three rats, two hamsters and a dog living in our modest 42 square metres flat.

I'm not a drunk, I tell you. Just because I had a scotch last night... and the night before... and on Thursday.. and every Wednesday... and whenever there's nothing good on TV... and after dinners... and at lunch, I mean that doesn't mean I'm a heavy drinker. :tongue:

I have watermellon juice everyday. Does that make me a heavy drinker too?

See, the problem is that in order to explain my music preferences I would have to give my entire playlist.

:lolu:

Me too.
And I'm afraid, at least in my case, it'd be terribly embarrassing to show off my playlist. It's like the worst case of mixed tapes ever! :P

All humans do is to go to a place, bountiful of nature, and live there. Then the human multiplies and sucks all the wonders there. They move to the next. There is one thing that works the same way as that: a virus.
