Well, climate change will lessen your snow but you still haven't told me whether or not you have chickens. :P

Objectively, looking back, those girls weren't that attractive. I think they only looked good standing next to the guys.

Hey, Marcus... You have ABBA posters on your bedroom wall. All Swedes do. Who do you look at most? The girls or the guys?

Also my region is pretty snowless as it is.

Hah really? What was so darn "funny" with my post?

The Comissar from IKEA do not tolerate any ABBA merchandise! Also it is still a decade of sorrow after our king, Ingvar Kamprad died ;(

Yep. you'd be the perfect straight man. ;)

A straight man in comedy is basically the person that doesn't get, or isn't even aware of, the joke or humour of the situation they're in.

And monarchies are the biggest scam going.

I got the joke. It's simply just the kind of joke one hear in thousands.

Also you did not get mine, it was not about the royal house, which I do not see as a scam. But about the founder of IKEA who died last year. :lol:

Considering most people don't even know the term "straight man" I don't believe you.

And my sympathies. You Swedes worship IKEA. I don't know anything about your monarchy but all monarchies are bad. Just look at England. Or... ewww... the Habsburg dynasty. ;)

Well, so much for getting a drone for video work for the upcoming YouTube channel..

This summer Canada is about to enact the most draconian drone laws in the world.

Believe me, I get safety. The idiots buzzing airports... Well, I can think of a few creative punishments but the laws Canada is about to enact will basically destroy drones as a hobby.

They have a list of approved drones your allowed to use and the biggest, most popular brand, DJI, is not on it. And you need to get a pilots certifications. Again, I get safety but this seems like part over-reaction, part cash grab and part helping their friends who own/invest in certain manufacturers . And the interactive map of no-fly zones for drones is basically any urban area.

So much for all the photographers and vloggers in Canada doing anything good. Drones weighing lest than 250 grams are fine, no certification required... but you can't do any decent video work with a drone that small.

Hey! Kamprad was a good man x) Least in his old days!

Either way, sounds like draconic governments of the west to me! Infringement on rights and freedoms for "safety" by punishing ALL with laws while the criminals get away with pretty meh penalties for horrible deeds. The usual! That sucks balls! I hope this can be changed, Maybe some government changes, like Justin losing will lift the law?

Sweet Merciful Fish!!!

So, four days ago I decided to re-enable account activation on the forums. Figured since I'm relaunching the site, and even though the plan is for the majority of content to be on YouTube, may as well allow people to join here if they want.

I'm glad I set it to user verification via email activation because wtf?!?! I just purged 150 bogus bot created accounts. All since the 21st. I guess bots still like spamming message boards.
