Thought it was going to be a metalurgy thing, exotic alloys, with your title. Laugh

Probably is our friend Dark-Samus who is from Sweden, and has been among our missing in actions for quite a while. Hope he checks in and is OK.

However IMHO, liking Heavy Metal Music, may just qualify you for some kind of sickness. Laugh Guess I'm just an old Chuck Berry kind of guy with my music. Laugh

I guess liking anything too much could be considered a form of OCD.
(but who decides what "too much" is?)

I wonder if (A) this story is not faux news and (B) if they pay disability for other addictions there.

That area of the world is suppose to be really open minded and liberal in that way..so I don't doubt the validity of the story.

Those countries are considered so safe that women leave their babies outside unattended, even at cafes and such..on the street to 'get air" and nobody takes the kids or messes with them.

Can you even fathom being able to do that, here?

Yet..as my H pointed out to me, soem of the most ruthless bikder gangs also come form that part fo the world.

Weird, huh?
