And American stereotype of Finns:

Well that's just silly. To help destroy that stereotype I will show a pic of REAL Finns:

Man, I'd wish, people here could read danish. There are some pretty interesting things going on over here.

More than a few of us can, to a degree. One of us is me.

Hvad siger jeg nu?  :)

Konichiwa.

Seriously, I can read most Germanic languages (not Icelandic) with varying degree of difficulty and so can more than a few others around here.

Heck, when I was leaving yesterday from work I bumped into some Belgians and I could understand quite well what they were saying, but there is no way I could begin to form sentence in the language.

If I can make a little sense of Kierkegaard, I can manage a newspaper. But the hardest stuff of course are billboards, advertising, and quick internetz.

Which is why I really marvel at how well many of you folks who ain't native American speakers and ain't living among native American speakers, can write so well in American. Again not to inflate his head, but Cyrillic really has mastery of American Internetz. I know the Netherlands is practically America + Communism, but still he is quite gifted.

The rest of you are rather impressive as well.

That's what happens when you're surrounded by american culture. Sometimes, we even speak english to each other, just because it sounds so much more awesome.

I just finished my Junior year of High School. High School has gone by so fast. I cannot believe I am going to be a Senior. I am going to miss everyone so much after next year, I am already going to miss many of the this year's Seniors (many of whom I have befriended). I might write a more in-depth reflection later, perhaps after my 2 year anniversary on OC.net (July 4).

You'll be surprised by how much you don't miss them, but enjoy the projected nostalgia while you can.

I'm wondering if you are capable of creeping me out more than you already have. The above didn't do it, but keep trying. That .gif of the black bodybuilder set me at least 15 months back in therapy.

You could be right. I am not one to form deep emotional attachments easily, nor am I very sociable. However, it is for this very reason that transitioning into college might prove difficult for me. Perhaps it is not so much the people I will miss, rather the familiar faces, environment, and atmosphere in general. Today was the last day I will ever see many of the Seniors ever again, and even after fully embracing this fact, their absence does not affect me as much as I expected it would.

Lord have mercy

We must have (had) very different experiences  :D  I was taking computer programming in vo-tech and dropped out my senior year, about 5 months before graduating. I was supposed to get new classes for the 2nd half of the year, but they assigned me study halls in the meantime. I never went to get new classes, I just left after lunch each day. If I didn't leave after breakfast. They had a breakfast thing where you could sign in, and that'd count as the same thing as a homeroom. I did whatever I could to get out of that school. Still ended up with a C average even though I wasn't there for 75% of my senior year. *shrugs* Anyway, one of the dumbest things I did in my life. If you like it, good for you. Wish I could go back, lol. :)

ROFL! What is wrong with you?

Can you possibly explain to me how the above happens?

Kai is an interesting guy...  You want to cheer for him because he's a working class guy who made it to the top, lived in the slums and such. But then he goes and does stuff like... well... there are several videos of him circulating doing various sexual acts, one with a piece of fruit. Seriously. So the costumes? Fairly mild in comparison  ;)

I think he only does that in guest posing gigs. In actual competition he wouldn't be allowed to, no... the IFBB doesn't even let you wear glasses, believe it or not. Tats are sort of controversial, though some guys have them.  He does a wild (=crazy) posing routine though, both as a guest poser and in competition. He seems fairly agile for a muscle-bound 250 pound guy.

It's so true. You should instead be more concerned with how you're going to win your high school reunion in 11 years. Although the joy of that has been pretty much destroyed by Facebook, I imagine. I already know who did what, who got fat, who looks better... Why even go?

You need to produce some more TV-series and international movie stars. That's what we do.

Or, you can just start an international crisis. That works too.

Sorry, it was inspired by J Michael's comment in another thread that blue was overrated.

Why has the Netherlands such a reputation? All we're known for is a plant.

No, what you're known for is drugs, hookers, and not caring about anything. It's a whole country of teenagers. Produce something that doesn't cater to someone's base appetites, and maybe others will stop looking at you as a punchline.

You ever been to the Netherlands? Why are you so angry today? It does seem to come in waves.

Who knew thinking about purchasing a house was such a headache.

You think you have a headache just thinking about it, wait 'til you actually go to buy one!

Selling is worse under most circumstances.

I know.  Right now location is the main problem.

EDIT: Miss hit reply

This stuff is unbelievable in person. I  am not much of a museum type, but I've seen more than I would like to of a few. I do understand why many museums wouldn't let even color prints be released of certain works. You really don't want to try to give even the impression you are seeing some these works.

The Netherlands is pretty fantastic over all really. I can't imagine anyone really hating on the place except for some gentle joshing.

Ever get so depressed you don't move? I mean, you could move if you had to, like if there was a fire or something, but you lack the will or desire to move, and further your body just seems like dead weight and disconnected, like the whole body is asleep even though the mind is awake? Is it just me?

No.

And if it is getting that bad you should seek professional help.

I go to a therapist and am on meds... they try to treat it, but can't cure it I guess. I was just curious how common this was.

EDIT--Though for me anyway, the periods don't last long--usually a matter of minutes.

If its only minutes I would say more people get this way than would be willing to admit.

I think the key would be understanding why.

I've occasionally had those even though I wouldn't say I'm depressed. We all have our bad moments.
