I already made a test drive of my Valkyrja a year ago. But it was lost in shipping. I would have continued sending out more of my cables but I don't want more to get lost in shipping.

I have removed all the weight inside the butt of my stick. I use 19oz for breaking and 17.5oz Meucci for playing, I have sanded down my shaft from the original 13mm into 11.8mm diameter, I get crazy spin now. When people are watching I sometimes hear weird breathing sounds when I make my normal shots. But when I make good shots, I don't hear anything, maybe they think it is luck.

Food/Cooking. You could go on doing that for a lifetime. Just buy some cookbooks and ingredients and you're all set.

I will get 9800gtx in december with UT3 and Crysis.

I want to put money into people's pockets, but I don't like it when they see me sticking my hand inside their pocket, they think I am stealing.

No luck when shooting for money.

So, do you run any tours in the Euro/States or do you just stay local?

Stock car racing! That's a different hobby and huge money's spent. It's friendship bonding hobby, too, with lots of people milling about, but I always got headaches from the fumes.



No, no, no - not stock car racing. Pat's Scandinavian; he should take up rally racing!

I was asked to go Euro tour 6 years ago, but I didn't want to go, I don't see the point in traveling for many days only to play two short matches.
I just play the local handicapped tournaments. I have -49 handicap and the lowest is -50, I think they will ban me soon and tell me I need to turn "pro". But I don't want to. So I just never reach -50 and hope I can stay. But less people have started showing up at every tournament, so that is a problem.

the moderators on that forum are idiots.. they're giving you these general therapy replies that treat you as if you're just the average everyday psycho

personally, i agree with you that you are different, but not in a negative sense. i don't think you want a girlfriend, but hwat a girlfriend represents.. which brings us to the question of what intrigues a man whose nature is contradictory to human/animal(?) nature itself (to **** until the planet is overpopulated with our descendants)
