Argh, life has just caught up with me. That was why I wasn't really hanging around here for a long time, up until now. And to top it all off, my dad decided to kill the net a few weeks ago.
So yes, sorry about going so suddenly, but I am back... not that any of you missed me. :p
So, what did I miss? :)
You missed our massive Mercedes giveaway. I was going to give you one, but you weren't here so I kept it. :p

Um... I banned a few fools. But nice to see you back. Great avatar.

I'm going through some shit... Rastan and Nick. I had to deal with some RL stuff so I'll be mailing your stuff out monday.
Fighting some minor depression, work/vacation problems -- fixed and my grades in school are sucking ass.
11-12-2006, 07:22 PM
Depressed? You? Oh, come on - I don't like hearing that.
Life is good as long as there's Genesis. ;)

BAH on the Mercedes giveaway! And I so needed that as opposed to my rubbish Volkswagan Polo... and a P redge at that. :p
And sorry to hear things aren't so good right now David. Hopefully things will improve soon.
And thanks Genesis. Made it myself with a really poor quality gif maker.

It'll get better, so I'm not too worried, but right now I'm sick of school. I've been in school for 14 years now... and I'm getting bored with college. My grades aren't too good and the semister ends in a month.
I had some scheduling problems at my job which are fixed. I'm going on a vacation and it's kind of a problem. My job isn't too bad, but not something I want to do much longer.
Monday I'm going back to counseling, because I having personal problems so I'm getting some help.

Well, you know we're all here for you, in spirit since we cannot be there in person. And you know we would be to help you get through this, to listen and to be understanding.
Things'll get better, you just have to take the rough with the smooth. :)

I've been in worse situtations before, but I haven't had to deal with so much at once in a long time so it's nerveracking.
I'm still not wearing pants, that's an important event.
11-13-2006, 04:40 PM
With you it'd be a more important event if you actually put them on.
11-13-2006, 05:02 PM

Kikoskia: Welcome back. You haven't missed anything. I got my driving license today. There are always these bright moments shining in your dark life. Remember that :).

What is the earilest age you can get a license in Sweden? I recall hearing that owning a car over there is expensive... Gas (Petrol), Insurance, Tax and even the car itself is much more expensive over there.
11-13-2006, 06:36 PM
You can get it when you're 18 here. It's very expensive. But I think we have fewer car accidents here than in most countries. You have to get a driving license permission, do a theory test, drive on "icy roads" test and the driving test itself. The most expensive thing is going in driving school. That cost me a fortune, but now that I have the license, I don't care. People who don't go to driving school fail more often on tests and I think they are worse drivers too. Gas (Petrol), Insurance, Tax and the car is expensive yes. Much thanks to the fact that we've had a green party that supported the Socialdemocratic government for the last 12 years in exchange for better enviromental politics, much about the suckiness of cars that destroy nature and yaddayadda (yes, it's true, but I still don't like the green party).

Well, you're trying to save the planet, more then most are. I myself am planning on living on the moon. :p

In the states getting a license is easy. When I got my permit it was easier, but it's not nearly as hard. In New York state it's this simple... Just go to a DMV, take a permit exam, pass it and you get a permit, you need to drive X number of hours that are documented, and then you take driver ed or a five hour course... it's really 3 hours because there are so many breaks from what I heard. Take your road test, and when you pass it, you have a license. Getting a night license may require more hours/older age. Since I took driver ed, I got my night license right when I got my license, and a 10% reduction in insurance until I turn 25.
I opted for Driver Ed because it was only $3 and I had nothing to do that summer. No job or anything at the time. The fact I got my night license and 10% discount was awesome too. My permit exam was $50. I pay $1093 for insurance a year... it's cheaper to pay yearly as there are no intrest or service charges.

Wow, that's cheap and easy. But in Sweden, you don't need to take a night license at least :P.
yeah Sweden has a pretty good reputation for good/safe drivers.
it sounds like you could get a unrestricted licience in the states in a matter of months?
11-15-2006, 10:00 PM
Yup, in the states a unrestricted license is pretty easy.
If you want to ride a motocycle/commerical truck/taxi/limo you need to take driving exams and more hours for those.
