    Stumbled over Google and decided to stick around :)

    Don't know what to say about myself ...

    So, my time and space measurements: 37 yo, 6'5'' tall, 190 lbs

    Hope to have good time here. I like the openness of this forums very, very much.

    Welcome and have a good time here!!!
    And, btw, I don't think Croatia is so silly... it is apparently a gorgeous country (never visited though) and its inhabitants are known for their beauty.

    Why, Eurotop40, thank you :)
    Now I shall have to post some pictures after all to (dis)prove it :)

    By all means, Croatia is very beautiful country, but with such a corrupted, incompetent and stupid-to-the-core government (for last 20 years!) that I do not feel any national pride whatsoever :( Through the history, we had a lot of world known brilliant individuals and even more catastrophic political decisions.

    What does the coat of arms (your avatar) represent?

    Hehe... well, that's a nostalgic avatar. Although I am not totally in favor of it, it is the coat of arms of the ancient Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia (under Austrian rule) that lasted from 1815 to 1859. I was born in that area. I do not favour autocratic regimes but at least it was a very well administered state (btw. a lot of imperial military people stationed there came from Croatia).

    LOL, I hear about "golden days" of AH Empire every other day - in this part of Croatia where I live (northern Adriatic, about half an hour from Italian border) we are still using geodetic maps from period before the Fall. Of course, they match perfectly with latest aerial photography. :) Sure, for "small folk" it was hard, but I do not believe that it is much more easier now... Is this thematic too serious for LPSG?

    Not at all, we can also open a thread in "Politics" if you like.
