I like deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
When I argue with reality, I lose -
but only 100 percent of the time
“Wisely, and slow. They stumble that run fast.”
Although personally I am quite content with existing explosives, I feel we must not stand in the path of improvement.
Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.

One of the questions that comes now and then is why Jadurani received the name Syamarani by Srila Narayana Maharaja. This is answered by Naryana Maharaja himself in the book “Walking with a saint” on page 4 which contains transcripts … Continue reading
That’s what it says on the bag – I am a little piece of Norway. Any Norwegian know what this bag is about: Milk chocolate from Freia. It was the best chocolate, could easily be compared to the quality of … Continue reading
I have no idea how to make a relationship works for years and years. Nowadays I notice whenever marriages ends after about twenty years – let me say it again, twenty years. That’s a long time – an eternity. That’s … Continue reading
I come across things on the internet that are beautiful and I want to share, so here’s some catch I’ve found these past few days. A video that shows the beauty of our world, a happy christmas article and a … Continue reading
Jeg har sett meg lei på alle nyhetene som fokuserer på kjønnet kvinner. Overskriftene er som oftest negativt ladet, og jeg har kun opplevd en gang at en artikkel har fokusert negativt på menn for et år siden eller noe. … Continue reading
Overalt hvor en er, så bugner det av seksualisert reklame og nyheter. Hvor mange ganger har man vel ikke hørt “Vi advarer om sterke scener i denne repotasjen” når man ser nyhetene, hvor resultatene av krig og vold kommer frem. … Continue reading

Norge har noen flotte velferdsordninger som gjør at 99% av befolkningen har tak over hodet og mat på bordet. Om man jobber og blir sykmeldt, så slipper man inntektstap. Er man så uheldig at man går arbeidsledig, så mottar man … Continue reading
Whenever I hear “Miami 2 Ibiza” I feel like I’m a frisky 18 year old again. I wish I was 18 year old with the hubris (and body) at the time, and could make a pass on Tinie Tempah. Just … Continue reading
“I’m not so sure I believe in God anymore”, my friend Merete confided to me when I visited her this Easter. “hmm” was my first response, quickly followed by “Why?”. We have known each other for about 20 years and … Continue reading

Jeg har lenge vært tvilsom til Facebook og jeg har mistet mye av interessen min for det. Facebook har gått fra å være et morsomt tillegg i livet mitt til å bli et irritasjonsmoment. Når jeg leste Eirik Newth sitt … Continue reading
VG fikk problemer ikveld, og feilmeldingen deres er bare herlig.
Norske bøker har vært fritatt for moms, så når regjeringspartiene avviste forslag om fritak fra moms på ebøker kom dette som en overraskelse på mange. Momsfritaket har vært knyttet til fysiske bøker, lydbøker og tidsskrifter som har et politisk, litterært … Continue reading
Klassekampen had a good statement about the french ban on burqa (norwegian). The ban has to be violating one, if not several human rights. The ban will probably go some rounds in court, ending up at The International Court of … Continue reading
I’m thinking about high-speed trains and the benefits it would provide the society. The last three days of plane less skies and volcano ash shows just how vulnerable we are when we rely on one primary way of transportation. Having … Continue reading
