RL pics
« on: October 06, 2008, 09:46:37 AM »
Isn't it time to start a RL pic thread?
Since we will slow down recruitment and settle in, as it was put, I thought why not present myself. To me, putting a face or some background facts like hobbies, job etc to an in game character is a very good way of building a community feeling. It is not for everyone of course which I respect.
I was born in 1959 in the north of Sweden and spent my youth in this snowy landscape skiing, fishing and doing other outdoors activities. For quite a few years I was a lot into sled dogs which may be exotic in this community. I have also played volleyball since my youth and I still participate in beach volley tournaments. I am married and have three children of which the two oldest are at universities in Britain. I have a PhD in Chemistry and currently work as a research scientist in Belgium.
WoW was my first MMO. I have also tried Tabula Rasa, LotRO and Conan but none of them clicked with me. So my online life has for the last two and a half years been WoW. A month or so ago I started to feel really fed up with WoW so I was eagerly awaiting WAR and so far it has more than met my expectations. Other hobbies I have are cycling, boardgames, computers and our two dogs. If you want to chat or whisper me I speak Swedish, Dutch or English and some other languages on an understanding basis only.
For those ex-wowers that still care, these were my two main chars: Medeba and Eljas

Ok, some RL pics then:


I am the guy with the sun glasses.


Hiking in the Swedish mountains together with my oldest son.


Skiing is something I and the family like to do. This is my wife in the Italian alps in February this year.

I liked the one of you where you looked quite like a pint of beer, Beo. :p

I've looked through photo's of myself, and I have a beer in my hand in at least 50% of them.
As I wouldn't want to disappoint anyone so here is one taken at a Beer Festival in 2006.

I like the beer-theme   ;)

made in France, 2005, when I also rode up the Mont Ventoux (http://www.geocities.com/yosemite/rapids/3892/south.htm). Here I am starting to make 'hang loose' symbol. Or was it just a lousy impersonation of a hiphopper? Dont remember. Anyway, being photographed climbing this mountain without my hands on the steer seemed cool to me then   :D
My face shows otherwise btw  :P

Huzzay!  :D

Let's continue the beer trend. One of two occasions where I have been seen resorting to the raw sewage known as beer.
Only when I'm so drunk that I can't say no when someone offers it to me. (some weird club in Nottingham, UK - 2006)


More lolcohol. Sangria by the bucket. (club called Himmerich, Germany - 2007)


Let's see how many countries HOJ alcoholics have been drinking in. ;D

I look horribly hot and sticky in this:



Samui was far too warm at night.

Penang is cooler and the Cameron Highlands even cooler.
