Hi all,

Cool to see the lively activity at this excellent board. I've been around for a while -- today I decided it was time to step out of the shadows and say "hi" to all you great people. I've been vegetarian for 5 -6 years. I feel that veganism is the only logical conclusion of "ethical" vegetarianism, and hence through the last couple of years I have gradually adopted this way of living.


All the best,
Niels

Welcome Niels!

Great to have you here. By the way, I've been to Denmark and LOVE it!

Did you see my feature in the Danish Vegetarian magazine this month?

Here is the link. I can't read it but I'm sure you can :)

Thanks for saying hi. I'm sure you'll have a fun time getting to know some of the members here. We are a pretty cool group. I look forward to reading more from you.

You look like you are in great shape!

All the best,

Robert

Your conclusion of vegetarianism to veganism is right on!

First, I would like to thank everyone for the very warm welcome! And again "Hi" to everyone (waves)!

There were a few notes along the way, I'll address them here:

Robert:
I'm glad that you liked Denmark! Thanks for the kind words.
Yes, I read your article in "Vegetaren" -- The "journal" of the Danish vegetarian society. It's a great article, and these people are very fond of you. Let me know if you wan't me to translate the article to English -- In that case I'll do my best.

CrispyQ:
I'm glad we agree :). The particular formulation btw, i.e. "veganism is the logical conclusion of vegetarianism" is actually not my own. I can't remember where it came _from_, but the truth contained in these words is universal.

Offense74:
Hej min nabo :)

Evan:
Hehe, yeah, it is cold now. -4 degs C, or so.. but the Danish summer _can_ be quite nice :).

Flanders77:
Thanks! Well, I keep my training quite simple. I train for strength, since I am an office guy -- sitting all day in front of a computer. Actually, I've just invested in a squat rack and an adjustable bench. Virtually all my exercises can be performed using this combination -- with the notable exception of chins. So once a week I go to a center to do my chins :)

Daywalker:
Well, I train for strength at a "hobby" level. I try to do quite a few compound exercises (squats, millitary press, bench, etc). Occasionally I throw in a couple of isolation movements (just because I love them). In particular, one-arm rows and concentration curls. I enjoy mountainbiking for cardio (although we have no mountains in DK).


Have a wonderful day everyone. I am looking forwards to chatting with you.

Glad you made the right choice, exciton. How'd you come up with that moniker?

Hi Raven,
Hehe.. well _I_ didn't come up with it, actually. I was influenced by a course I had some years ago in semiconductor physics. Here, an "exciton" is a quasiparticle -- an electron and its hole taken as a whole. So I thought : "Damnd, sometimes I feel like a quasiparticle".. hence the nick :). Whats the story behind your handle? Inspired from Nordic mythology, perhaps?
All the best,
Niels

Niels,

Thanks for the kind words about the magazine. Maybe you are the only person on the forum who has seen it. It is a really cool 4 page total 4-photo feature in a Danish vegetarian magazine.

I still have my orginal text in English and it doesn't look like it was changed much so I don't think I need it translated, but thanks, and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Cool to have you on the board. I really enjoyed Denmark, it may have been my favorite place of the 15 countries I visited in Europe in 2004. It is very hard to pick a favorite and I didn't stay in each place very long. I guess that means I'll have to go back someday!

I'm glad people in Denmark are pleased with my article, I think I will be writing more for that magazine in the future :)

Have a great day and I'm glad you are quickly getting to know our forum members. They are Great!

-Robert
