    Hi all.
    Im new here - but have already made alot of comments and a few posts.
    So far its been fun and I look forward to more!

    A few things about myself:
    Im 26 years old and live in Copenhagen. I love a good debate! (drives my friends and occasional girlfriend mad :lol: ). My army career was short lived due to a shoulder injury i got while playing handball (european handball not the same as the states). But its fast, violent, fun and with lots of goals - so really you good folks from the other side of the pond should give it a go :) . Anyway during my short term in service I was stationed with the Royal Guard Hussars Regiment (the oldest regiment of hussars still in operations) 3rd Batalion (Armoured infantry - Recce). Now I study history at the University of Copenhagen, but I'm takin a "break" and going to Zimbabwe this fall to work as a Care worker with MS. My biggest interests are military history and politics.

    Lookin forward to being here - cheers

    Hey Daniel, welcome to the forum, nice to see more countries represented. {Too many Canucks, Aussies Americans already! :D }

    Interesting to see someone from Copenhagen, did you know that we have a similar statue in Vancouver based on your "Little Mermaid"?

    Lol - no - nice :) Actually our own little mermaid statue embarrases me at times (although it represents a very important piece of litterature and a great story). I mean - jeez - its the only national monument that most foreigners know about and its like 2 feet and has a factory backdrop :oops: Luckily lots of other stuff thats great here hehe.

    I will be honest the first thing I had to see when I visited Copenhagen was the Little Mermaid statue.

    I actually like Copenhagen.

    Hey Daniel, already into some good debates with you - hoping we don't go down the road to the "dark" side and get ugly. :) Welcome!!

    Hey Lucky, do the Swedes understand some of the Danish language? or is it too different?
