    Default The Final Countdown

    We're heading for Venus...

    Well, actually we're heading for Sweden, home of the band Europe, who did the song eponymous of this thread - a song which always shat me off because, frankly, there are no fucking lightyears to go if you're doing that. Lightminutes at most.

    Anyway, we're off tomorrow morning. Fucking awesome.

    Raise a glass. Goldenmane's going international.

    Have a good trip GM, and anyone else you might happen to be with at the time.

    I have never been there but the Nordic countries are an area on which I would like to call before I kark it.

    Now all you need to do is learn how to say "fuck" in Swedish.

    The Swedes are a friendly bunch and you'll have a great time; just don't do your Swedish chef impersonation or the deodorant joke.

    What, indeed, is an atheist? He is one who destroys delusions which are harmful to humanity in order to lead men back to nature, to reality, to reason. Baron d'Holbach

    _____

    If we go back to the beginnings of things, we shall always find that ignorance and fear created the gods; that imagination, rapture and deception embellished them; that weakness worships them; that custom spares them; and that tyranny favours them in order to profit from the blindness of men. Baron d'Holbach

    Have fun, GM.
    They have internets there, so stay in touch. Let us know what secular society is like.
    Travel safe.

    Bastard!

    Have a fucking good time.
    I do not fear death, in view of the fact that I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.

    Actually, I've been learning Swedish, but haven't learned any swear words yet.

    Thanks, all. We'll keep in touch. Only going for 3.5 weeks, not forever.

    Anyone know of any atheist/freethinker/secularist groups I should look up while we're there?
