exciton, you feel like a whole hole? :lol: Neat story.

Well, I'm a bird person -- love them; all of them. I suppose I could be an owl or a hawk, turkeys are sweet, a dove, swan; but I think ravens are mysterious and dark...quite mischievous and considered the most intelligent of the wild birds ;) Best to be identified with the crafty, intelligent not-so-beautiful ones rather than the beautiful always-the-prey, dumber ones :D
Actually, all birds are extremely intelligent. I love them all.

They're also closely tied to the spiritual world in many north american indigenous cultures. They are able to move betwenn our plane of existence and the afterlife.
Very powerful indeed and highly revered.

Smurf ones? I gotta try this!


:bigsmurf: <---- Holy Crap! It's Papa Smurf! That's cool. Here's a smurfy factoid:

In Europe, the smurf theme song actually has words other than "La la la la la la la la la la la" etc.

In the states I have only heard one English version were they said "Sing a happy song, smurfy all day long" But in Europe, they have a whole song full of real words. Crazy huh?

I like Day Walker's smurf saying "goodness takes the bad away"

Thanks again! Personally, I think one of the nice things about Denmark is its small size -- it gives you the feeling (illusion) that if you work hard enough for a case, then other people will hear you.. One of the bad things about Denmark, is our "pork production".. the production/slaughter of 25000000 pigs per year is absolutely insane. Let me know if you plan to visit Denmark again -- my bench is your bench :).

Raven:
Haha, yeah.. I feel like a real hole sometimes.. some would probably like to add a prefix to that word :lol:..
I tend to agree with your observation that the raven seems more intelligent than other birds -- but of course the subject is complex. There is no doubt, however, that these birds are mysterious.

Phoenix:
Interesting - I must admit I know very little of the north american indigenous cultures. However, I recall from school that Hugin and Munin were the two ravens of Odin the god of war, death and wisdom. Hugin and Munin were the eyes and ears of Odin, and they would fly out and see and hear everything happening in world. Later they would report to Odin, so as to keep him up to date. I guess he uses the internet today, but the old concept might come in handy in the case of Google failure.

compassionategirl:
Hi, and thanks for the welcome :)


May you all have a great day!

Hey, Phoenix and exciton, another reason I love ravens is that they *are* highly symbolic as you've suggested. Oftentimes they are associated with witches and witchcraft and such; especially in the distant pass in order to justify suppression of women (recall stake burning,and women being referred to as witches, "casting spells" on men with their sexuality, etc.,)
So, I suppose it's sort of a nod to my foremothers :) Many have suffered so we can be who we are and where we are today. (hmm, we need a feminist smiley...)
Didn't want to get too heavy on you all, ;) but that's another one of the reasons I like ravens.

Hey Exciton, that's very nice. I recall those names but for the life of me I don't know why I know them.

thanks.

Hi Phoenix,
You are welcome :). I feel in the same way about a lot of things, btw. The brain works in mysterious ways.
All the best,
Niels

Hehe, yeah -- that is cool. Perhaps we should start a forum for vegans with shaved heads :D

Hey Exiton,

Are some of your friends vegans or vegetarians in Denmark? You should encourage them to join our group too :)

You can show them the magazine feature. I hope to travel over there again...maybe in 2007 or 2008.

I know there was a pretty good vegetarian/vegan community in Copenhagen in Christiania.

Have a great day,

Robert

Hi Robert,

No, unfortunately I do not have any veg* friends. As a matter of fact, all throughout my life I have met only very few Danish vegetarians. To be exact, I think the number is 2. None of these guys considered ethics as part of their motivation for being vegetarian -- It was merely a question of disliking the taste of meat. I have, however, recently heard that there should be a vegetarian at my new workplace. I am curious to investigate this situation.

Well, I think you are right about Christiania -- some of the people out there definitely are vegetarians. You have probably already heard the story about Christiania (i.e. it's an old hippie place).. so some of the folks out there have integrated some of the eastern philosophy into their lifestyle. Sadly, however, this is a minority, and in general the Danes eat a lot of meat.

I am looking forwards to meeting you in 07/08!

All the best,
Niels

Hey, Niels, why don't we see you on the boards?!! Plus, I'd like to know your workout routine and diet -- you are in great shape!

You don't have to create a journal; you can respond to this post and post an example of your food and workout in my journal, if you want :)
