Re: Maybe one of the hottest Jens pics ever

One of the best airline stories ever, for sure.

Re: Upcoming Revolution Renaissance tour close to be cancelled?

I recall Tolkki writing somewhere that Sep 4th, i.e. yesterday, is the time Revolution Renaissance will convene in Helsinki in its entirety.

Let's all hope they can concentrate on the main thing, but still find the time to do some internet newscasting like Jens & co are successfully doing.

Re: Meanwhile in Finland...

Wunderschön, Lauri. There is a certain je ne-sais-quoi in films consisting of lots of banging and featuring a not-fully-dressed German man. However, and the undisputed news value notwithstanding, I'd still rather have you playing the bass and composing than making movies. If someone reading hasn't a...

Re: A question of life and death (or, Schrodinger's Rat)

Guess we Scandinavians are just so design-oriented, that even a mousetrap has to look special. And we still have the regular ones as well, though. Clas Ohlson -the Swedish equivalent of the Home Depot- that sells the Mjølner has a pet.pend. on the device, so maybe in the future all mousetraps will l...

I'd pay serious cash to be able to travel back in time to the moment Jens first saw this mousetrap and particularly its name at the friendly local hardware store. Must have...

Re: A question of life and death (or, Schrodinger's Rat)

Judging by what is seen at the bottom of the picture of death, the chosen method of decimation was a device known to us Scandinavians simply as "Mjølner".

Re: A question of life and death (or, Schrodinger's Rat)

I'll vote for 'Of Mice and Men'. You can never be too grandiose in matters like these.

Besides, with this moniker, the chance of a sequel season titled 'The Grapes of Wrath' becomes almost inevitable.

Re: A question of life and death (or, Schrodinger's Rat)

According to Wikipedia, "Mouse-like hamsters are a group of small rodents found in Syria, Azerbaijan, Iran, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, and Pakistan."

Somehow I don't think that's where Jens, Jörg and the guys are... But whatever. This is still one the best discussions on a metal site. Ever.

Re: A question of life and death (or, Schrodinger's Rat)

Oh, "gate theory" in practice. It all starts with the innocent killing of rodents, but then one day the rodents are not enough. You move on to small predators...

By the way, have you considered that the Ghost of the Rodent will now haunt the rest of your sessions?

Judging by that tail, the fucker sure was something other than a mouse. A Rattus Norwegicus, I'd guess.

Oh damn me and my arrogance. I should do my homework for having to google that Bergman quote. Well, at least I admitted to it. We'll say the score is 1-1. OK, Jens?

Re: A question of life and death (or, Schrodinger's Rat)

Jenssi, Jenssi, Jenssi. Do your homework.

The "sorkfeber" I referred to earlier is a form of hanta. That's what alerted me; you saying that the beast is pissing on your food. Because you can get nephropathia epidemica from dried rodent piss. And maybe from Hanta Claus as well.

Didn't you try to post this earlier? Well, it was worth the wait.

And P.S. Statistics do show that death really is winning. In the grand scheme of things, even.

Oh yeah. Rat-o-Varius vs. Cat-o-Varius. That could do the trick and be somewhat entertaining as well. Nevertheless, before you are faced with a serious MOUSE PROBLEM, I'd suggest you stuff sparrows down its throat until the beaks stick out through the stomach walls. Because, as we psychiatrists have...

Re: Forum

"Consists of two separate words that both start with R"
Oh damn, so it actually stands for "Rickrolled"! Who would have guessed?

Got you another one. Name the best prankster ever.
I'll even give you a clue: "Consists of two separate words that both start with J"

Made my morning, man! Skål.
