TL;DR Want to be on radio? Have a story worth sharing? Email me: YeahLetsGoThere at gmail.com

Hello again, my old friends.

You may remember me as the guy who used to pop up on the forums to ruthlessly mock Gui, or occasionally Hellbender. Or perhaps you remember me as the only Warlighter to ever use his real name and face as their username and avatar. If I'm lucky, you remember me as the weak-link in the consistently top three 2v2 ladder team of the late Dr. TypeSomething and me. Or probably you don't remember me.

That's because 8 months ago, I quit Warlight to travel the world. (Also, my job.) I've been to places like China, Burma, Cambodia, and Laos. I've bathed with elephants, ridden ostriches, trekked through jungles, climbed mountains, and jumped off waterfalls. I even found Gui in real life and didn't spit on him. See:



Some of you have followed my blog http://www.YeahLetsGoThere.tumblr.com because, despite Gui's claims, I don't suck at writing. Well, the blog has built up a small following and my writing has had some viral success in Norway, Sweden and Brazil of all places. Well, I'm here to announce the next step: a radio/ podcast.

I travel with a digital recorder in hand and whenever someone has a fascinating story to tell, I turn it on. I've collected dozens of great stories. Stories about life and death, drugs and insanity, love, heartbreak, of vile acts and untempered generosity. But, and this is where you come in, I want more.

The show will premiere early next year. I've still got another month of jungles, beaches and mountains before I sit myself in a dark room and hammer out the first season's episodes. If you think you have a story worth sharing, email YeahLetsGoThere at gmail.com.

I'll come back here every couple days to answer questions, respond to comments, mock gui and respond to whatever else ridiculousness you people come up with in here.

Hello, podcast listeners of the world. Today I'm going to be talking to you about the time I impersonated a capybara on an internet forum.

It was the summer of 2012 and

What's with the levels? I'm gonna assume lower is better. And clans are official now? So much has changed but, X! You're still here! Amazing. In fact, I can't believe all you guys are still around. Except Brain. Who the heck is Brain?

Anyways, thanks Ace. They'll be crazier than you expect.

Yes, Piggy. You do realize that English is a global language. I bet Sweden and Norway have a higher percentage of English speakers than the US does amongst its residents. Brazil, I can't explain.

All the non english speakers in america are illegal aka not residents. Brazilians speak portugese and the business types speak english. So their kids do, and look up trendy bullshit like you on the internet. Yet more style instead of substance from you micky. I hope it gets you laid.

Piggy, do you not know what a resident is? Because it seems like you don't know what it is.

Leon... I don't remember you... oh Fridge! Hi. Yeah, no alts. Just ask Gui. We actually talked about that. I still don't really understand why anyone would bother with alts.

Myhand +1

Yeon! Hey! Kosdan går det? Have you seen this article: https://medium.com/estimated-time-of-arrival/b1a51c79a3d0
It was a huge hit in Norway. Huge. Also, intensely hated.
Despite the hate, I published a sequel today: https://medium.com/estimated-time-of-arrival/17209ab5631f

I don't see why anyone would hate it. It's hilarious :) Some of it's pretty accurate too, no doubt because of your own experiences.

"Resident" is a visa status in the U.S. I was making fun of your unfortunate choice of language.

One of the advantages of being a man-of-the-world is that you know more ways to diss your countrymen and -women.

Though I can't help but agree with piggy about that blog's primary function.

Mikkelsen, you should be ashamed of your blatant racism in "What Else Is Weird About Norway" article. Look at this:

"Every opportunity Norwegians get to insert some English into the conversation, they do it. Anything in English can be inserted into any conversation at any time. Not because it’s clearer or the word for it is lacking in Norwegian, but because they can and they like it. They don’t, however, always get the grammar right. Like this example I overheard in a pub: “My friend is dating total loser right now.”".

OK, so you apparently think that Norwegians are too stupid to get their grammar right?! I can see why they hate you so much there. And did it ever occur to you that, since "Tohtull Loozur" is a common Azerbaijani name, he might have used the grammar correctly if he was referring to a person who was named that? No. The fact of the matter is that your racist, anti-Nordic beliefs have gotten in the way of reality. #HatersGonnaHate #NotCool,Mikkelsen #WhatATotalLoser #Norway #Linguistics

I thought that way at first Dolphin. But after reading the tumble I agree 100% with Mikkelsen that Norway should be annexed by Finland, and all Norwegians should be put to work in death camps, or used for medial experiments. Fuck Norway forever, if any subhuman Norwegian scum are reading then know that your time is coming. All hail Mikkelsen and the Finnish master race

Piggy, I wasn't using resident as a legal term.

Pulsius, I... don't understand what you're saying. What's my blog's primary function? Is it bad?

General and Yeon, thanks so much! I'm glad you like my writing. The podcast is going to be great. Or greatish. Mostly great. Just listen, then you can decide if it's great or really, really great.

Dolphin... okay.

Brain, oh, it's Pulsey. Hey, Pulsey.

His name is John "Muscle" Rikklesen, he's starting a podcast. He's got the rhetoric of Hitler, the cutting-edge marketing know-how of Goebbels, and the luscious, dreamy hair of Rudolf Hess. All rolled up into one ball of Norway-hating fury.

btw just read the sequel tumble, i like your idea to ban vaginal sex in the norwegian rape camps. wouldn't want to accidentally produce any half-norwegian cockroach babies.


i decided not to post this because it would be too much

At least the Nazis actually had some style. X, Mikkelsen, you guys really need to calm down. And seriously, death camps? That's so cliche and overdone. You need to come up with some cooler method of extermination if anyone's going to be interested in working for you.

Other than sharing their undeniable individual qualities, Muscle has nothing to do with the Nazis. Muscle has killed more Norwegians alone than all of the Nazis combined.

Wow. This thread. The things you do, Warlight...

So, um... Machiavelli, I think it's me? I'm not sure. Possibly you though, with a name like that.

Pulsius, oh. Well, it's not a very effective blog then.

Myhand, that sounds awesome. I'd go to that camp.

X speaks truth. Always.

Dynamite, every thread I start is notable. I know what the people want.

Hellbender, nobody cares. Oh, wait, you read my blog? Cool, thanks! I'm glad you like it. Ya know, that is actually the first thing you've ever posted that I was at all interested in reading.
