    Those guys are mad haha, I look true quite special in that photo, the comments on that photo(on FB) is a good read tbh, I look like a true mong, I'm not very photogenic I'm affraid :P

    Gothenburg is nice, a good place to live, esp during summers.
    I'd estimate that I have spent around... 33,000 kr ($5000 if anyone else wants to know) on it, every single piece of equipment included. That's..

    The cameras with essentials:
    * Nikon D60 body - Planning to sell
    * Nikon D7000 body
    * Nikon MB-D11 grip
    * Nikon EN-EL15 battery - one extra, so that I can take up to ~2000 exposures before recharging
    * 4 GB, old, slow card - I still use it, since the D7000 has dual card slots
    * 16 GB 95mb/s SDHC-card - overkill speed-wise, but I won't ever have to replace it

    Lenses:
    * Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55/3,5-5,6G ED VR
    * Nikkor AF-S 50/1,4G
    * Sigma AF 18-200/3,5-6,3 DC OS HSM
    * Samyang MF 14/2,8 ED AS IF UMC v2

    Other:
    * Nikon Speedlight SB-400 external flash
    * Nikon Speedlight SB-900 external flash
    * Nikon ML-L3 remote trigger
    * Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod + Manfrotto 494RC2 head
    * 85 mm UV-filter
    * 58 mm polarizing filter
    * 55 mm reverse macro ring
    * Backpack

    That's more or less it.


    I don't know how you look in real life, but either you look good in the photos or you look truly great in real life.

    Yes, I live around an hour by train from Gothenburg and have spent my fair share of time there 'specially during summers, aaand it really is great. Kulturkalaset makes it all even better.

    I found a picture of me when I was 6, I think it's lost forever now for the greater good of everything, here's what it looked like:

    Depends on if you bottom the throttle out or not. Harley's tend to break themselves quite often, especially if chain driven. Inner primaries love to break, and even the notches on the outer primary get stripped completely off when belt driven. Even the vibration from the damn thing breaks itself; the welding on your headlights and turn signals starts to break and your frame starts to twist (true story, 75hp 1980 shovel head). Would I say its the best bike in the world? Definitely not. Its not made for anything but slow and steady cruising at 55 mph without tearing itself apart.

    That weapon is intriguing... ? not a M416? looks like a shortened one with a RAS rail or something?

    Not really. I'm co-owner to a restaurant that spend much, much more than that on equipment.

    Fun fact about Fanta/Coke. Just before WW2 to continue selling products in Germany and avoid the embargo Coke created Fanta and sold it under a shell name. Sure this was 70 years ago but it is funny to know Coke a flag waving "patriot" company put the fiscal bottom line before the US once upon a time.

    Mostly Burgers and fries (it's not a franchise), ice cream/shakes, also other sandwiches, salads, and a lot of nasty deep fried stuff I'd rather not sell (people like it, and we need to have variety to keep making profits in a small town).

    But surely you could use what you have to make money, no?

    It does. I feel safe. There's been maybe 1 murder here in 10 years. And break-ins? They don't really happen. People have broken into businesses at night before, but not homes. You don't have to worry about getting mugged if you walk around at night.

    You might have to worry about cougars though.

    It's also good knowing so many people. I recognize half the people I see, maybe not by name, but by face. Downside? Not a lot of fun to do. The only bars are like, old-time country music bars, no arcades, and a crappy theater. But it's not like I NEED those things to be happy. It's a great place to raise children.
