Ah yes the third point.

I wonder where I go under this logic. Linguistically very close to Finland but geographically Eastern European since Estonia isn't on the Northern coast of the Baltic Sea. But then, neither is Denmark.

English is the language of computers and half the television programs so it's a natural choice.
lol. A bit is an understatement. Thing is, the Finno-Ugric languages tend to be agglutinative (meaning: the ends of the words change in order to show what in English is accomplished with pronouns, articles and suchlike). This means that the whole language structure is completely different from Indo-European languages. However, once one of those languages is well learned, others aren't that difficult.In Estonia it's also one extra language that's mandatory, and often a third - the second language in most schools is English, the third is either Russian or German (with Finnish gaining ground on those two). Unless it's a Russian school, in which case the second language is Estonian, then third English.

Yes well, I find that understatements are generally better in the art of making points than overstatements.

EDIT: Or truths that sound like boasting for that matter. Humility is the key to understanding.

Its AWESOME to see another D&D player on here. I'm sure there are more but you are the first that I have noticed so far.. AND 3.5 you are AWESOME!!! I am currently running a 3.5 campaign set in the worlds largest dungeon and its AMAZING!!

As for music If you like piano music definitely check out some Chopin, organ music I really enjoy Bach, and for NeoRomantic music I LOVE Stravinsky! I am a huge fan of Choral music(as was my major) and Enjoy many old and new composers. If you like choral works check out Eric Whitacre he has some AMAZING pieces.
it would surprise me if there weren't more D&D players here. Started playing when 3.5 came out, so been a while now.. I'm having a ton of fun with it (while drinking a beer and roasting a stake) Currently we are playing 'Mysteries of the Moonsea'.

I'll give Stravinsky and Whitacre a shot
do you have pieces you recommend for Bach? Like I said, I haven't been into Bach, but I'm give it a second shot.. Maybe Terez will be less 'obvious' then

never got why you would dub films/TV. I remember B.A. Baracus (Mr. T.) with a high pitched voice
It would be like reading WoT in Dutch... it would be the same, but way off at the same time.

understatements with a wink or a bit of sarcasm (depending on the situation) are always good.

There does seem to be a strong link between reading SF/Fantasy and playing RPGS and MMOs

Currently playing D&D4 myself, but have dabbled in others (and MMOs).

Well I do enjoy his organ works.... His Toccata and Fugue in D minor and his little Fugue in G are always great. very playful..... Bach was also a composer for the Lutheran church, and being a good Lutheran.. love his works.

These were pretty good. you might find some humor out of this clip
I'm still trying to find my way around classical music.. If I run into something I really like, I'll let you know.

there are no relationships what so ever with them, so no worries... I even don't like their music
I guess I'll be doing some more sinning on this board

I only went to the fair and the signing at the fair (on Saturday, IIRC)... I remember you asking RJ if he would remember you and Sander, and his reply to it And me getting RAFO'd

and no, I don't know Sander personally.
