"Culture: the cry of men in face of their destiny." [Camus]
My original intentions were to make this a photoblog, but fate seems otherwise determined. I live not far from an existential lifestyle and tend towards misanthropic beliefs. This is my blog.
Whether you read it or not is up to you. Whether you agree or disagree is up to you..for I do not care. Enjoy..or don't.

Say what now£

okay, this is something that I absolutely have to put into everyone's (at least whoever reads this') attention.
At the very time of writing this 1 GBP = 9.547 NOK. (Follow the rate here)
That is almost a full 10% decrease from a bit under a week ago. Times are crazy and Britain's falling ever deeper into the recession.
If there ever was a time to be glad to be a Norwegian citizen in the UK then now is it. Norway is less affected by the financial crisis than the UK and that is all there is to say about it. But every world economy is taking a heavy blow. Let us hope the world escapes recession in a year or two years.

Og dette trodde jeg hadde vært åpenbart lenge.

    haha, it's my fault for labelling it with "UK recession". Spammers start popping up with such common 'latest-hot-topic' labels.
    I deleted it just because it's way too annoying to have the page scroll for ages down.. and instead, I made a quick page dedicated to that post alone. Kind aren't I.
    I figured a lot of work must have been put into that thing so just deleting it would be too sad. xD

    that must have been at least a year to 1.5 years ago. But yes, once upon back in the not-so-long-ago day. You would've thought the British economy would have spotted the decline trend looong before the recession now, but no no. What they can't see can't hurt them... right?
