When two educated people break up, what happens? What if they have the same degree? Let’s have a look.


  • The girl accuses the boy of using her as a replacement for his mother, in lieu of something better. Boy accuses girl of indecent relationship to cigars.


  • Both parties claim that the other party was suppressing them.


  • Boy attempts to bury past, girl keeps digging it up.


  • OH MY GOD! Darling — everything we had IS IN SHAMBLES!


  • - All you wanted was access to my genes.


  • Both parties accept that what goes up must come down.


  • “And it was in this house that Jack (19) and Jill (18) at 11 PM last night announced their respective break-ups after only two weeks.”

Women’s Studies

  • - HE did it!


  • Both of them decide that they spend too much money together, and that it’s more rational to be single.


  • They agree that the cause of the break-up is a matter of the past.


  • Both agree that moving far, far away is the best solution.


  • - I’ve never actually liked your body.


  • The ending proceeds in the form of well-written letters, complete with a lead-in, a main part, and conclusions, but neither of them manage to communicate anything useful to the other party.


  • They both agree that it was a learning experience.


  • The fundament wasn’t any good anyways.


  • If two people break up in a student house, and nobody can confirm the break-up, are they then single?


  • There was simply no chemistry.


  • Both write a long piece to express their sorrow. At least one go into country music.


  • Mutual suits are filed for illegal neglect of a contractual agreement regarding dates.

Rule #8: “The second biggest detriment to public service is the service.”
Rule #9: “There’s a reason; there’s ALWAYS a reason.”
Rule #10: “The Law is a harsh mistress: The rigorous and exacting application of which can benefit of society when used correctly to advance good policy and block bad, and be the bane of society when used incorrectly to advance bad policy and block good.”
Rule #11: “Public service often involves waking up in the morning, opening up the newspaper, and discovering that someone, somewhere out there thinks that you’re a dickhead.”
Rule #12: “No one really knows what you do.”

Well, somebody certainly pulled off a very nice picture at least… ;-)

I Am A: Lawful Good Human Cleric (3rd Level)

Ability Scores:







Lawful Good A lawful good character acts as a good person is expected or required to act. He combines a commitment to oppose evil with the discipline to fight relentlessly. He tells the truth, keeps his word, helps those in need, and speaks out against injustice. A lawful good character hates to see the guilty go unpunished. Lawful good is the best alignment you can be because it combines honor and compassion. However, lawful good can be a dangerous alignment because it restricts freedom and criminalizes self-interest.

Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Clerics act as intermediaries between the earthly and the divine (or infernal) worlds. A good cleric helps those in need, while an evil cleric seeks to spread his patron's vision of evil across the world. All clerics can heal wounds and bring people back from the brink of death, and powerful clerics can even raise the dead. Likewise, all clerics have authority over undead creatures, and they can turn away or even destroy these creatures. Clerics are trained in the use of simple weapons, and can use all forms of armor and shields without penalty, since armor does not interfere with the casting of divine spells. In addition to his normal complement of spells, every cleric chooses to focus on two of his deity's domains. These domains grants the cleric special powers, and give him access to spells that he might otherwise never learn. A cleric's Wisdom score should be high, since this determines the maximum spell level that he can cast.

Still waiting for my letter of admission to the UiO Faculty of Law. They’re apparently still working on my case!

Today’s been pretty fulfilling. I’ve done a full-home vacuuming and gone over with soap and water (I am very glad I have a small home). I’ve cleaned. And now I’m preparing a few notes before me and my wife — bless her — are off to our weekly roleplaying game. We’re currently playing the What Follows in Shadow adventure in the Wheel of Time RPG setting, and I angle to send the characters headlong into the Prophecies of the Dragon series of adventure later. Mwahahaha… They’re in for a RIDE!

I’m also pondering how to most easily deal with my forgetfulness. Will I remember to look up appointments in an appointment book? Gah, if only my memory hadn’t started to fail on me.

There are people who claim that religion is nothing but bad, and seem to have as a core tenet that all religious people in general, and Catholics in specific, should be permanent apologists for past sins, as well that those of a moderate bent should be permanent apologists for the extremists who claim to belong to the same faith.

Therefore, I see fit to demand of everyone who’s ever known anyone who’s used anything created in a factory — that would be most of humanity — that they apologise profusely and immediately for creating the climate issues that they themselves (for the most part) now claim are going to be the end of us.

Personal responsibility. It’s just that. Personal. Now, one counter-argument to this can be the so-called ’sins of the father’ doctrine (ex. in Exodus 20:5; “You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me,”), which I’ve seen used as an argument in favour of the apologist view. Said doctrine, however, says nothing about Earthen relationships, as, going back to the Law of Moses, it is stated in that big book that sons shall not suffer for their fathers’ sins (Deuteronomy 24:16). Said doctrine is on the relationship between man and God, and basically means this: If a man turns away from God, and raises his children accordingly, the children will suffer for it, for they don’t know of God. But on Earth, each answers for himself alone.

This post produced by an annoying tendency to dislike people who believe they’re entitled to an apology from me personally for something my forefathers have done. I will answer for my crimes against mankind, but I refuse to answer for yours!

Well, six months to be more exact. So, what’s gone on in Christer’s life for the last few months? Well, you’ll have to wonder a bit longer while I actually go and do a write-up of that. ;-)


What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

New York City. You are most definitely from New York City. Not New Jersey, not Connecticut. If you are from Jersey then you can probably get into New York City in 10 minutes or less.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

Um. New York is at least an eight-hour flight away...

Quote of today:

"Sex is easy. Good sex is a little more difficult. Love is hard to find in today's world. The hardest thing to find is someone who is sexually compatible with you, loves you, wants to be with you, and gives good head."

not a peasant was stirring, 'cept a car dirty and gritty
Suddenly there was a strange noise in the lot
There was a child about to be begot
I couldn't see any excitement from the spot where I lay
So I went to slip down the birth canal just as fast as I may...

This very minute, twenty years ago, I came crashing and screaming into the world. I'm told I was a great surprise, not being expected before the first of January. My birth was relatively uneventful, Mother and I were lonely in the birth ward.

Last Year
I had just arrived from Canada, and was pulling an in my opinion great prank on Grandmama -- planning to arrive unannounced at Christmas dinner. Mother sank that battleplan on this day by forcing me to call and ask her to put an extra plate on the table. Later, it was commented that this was the second year I've been her Christmas present.

Five Years Ago in Nibelheim...
I became responsible for my crimes... No real change. There was cake, fun, and a merry time. I was glad to be half-way to the finish line with my teenages.

Ten Years Ago
Memories from this era in my life are pretty scarce, but according to my Grandmama, I signed my name in her scrapbook as "Høyesterettsjustitiarius Christer Jenson" (the title translates as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court). I've been doomed to an interest in law ever since. 1997 was also the year when my Great-Uncle died, the first death in the family I can recall (my grandfather died in 1989, that's the only other one).

Fifteen Years Ago
Believe it or not, memories from THIS era are even more scarce. I don't have many memories from before school-age, and they're all pretty jumbled together as it is. I remember sitting upon my Great-Uncle's lap and reading the newspaper out loud. I remember sneaking up to him and having slices of bread with butter and sugar on top when I didn't feel like whatever my parents and brethren were having. He taught me much, and I hope I've done him right.
