Hello eeeverybooodi my name is SkurkNilsen.
I stole my name from an old village idiot (I prefer the term village funny guy, because he was no idiot). He is dead now so I guess/hope he doesn't mind.

Anyway, I'm from Norway and live far above the arctic circle with midnight sun like this

The dark season like so

And northern lights (Aurora Borealis) like nowhere else

For work this is what I do, and I wouldn't change it for anything

I live on a small island in a closely knit comunity, I'm no city person and dread every visit to big cities. Despite that I have travelled some and can cross off the following countries:

UAE, USA, Canada, Spain, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Egypt, Cyprus, Germany, France, Belgium, Laos, Iran, Turkey, Thailand, Cambodia, Russia, Great Britain, Vietnam, Monaco and Lichtenstein.

There will be more, my wife and I are planing on India and Bhutan next(when the economy allows it).

I do not have any children, nor do I want any. (Mum's not too happy about that).

I love a good conspiracy, but I will demand proof if you do not state it is just your opinion, in that case I will pour out my opinion

I support a NWO because I think the OWO isn't really working out.

My heroes:

Bruce Parry (Tribe - BBC)
Lars Monsen (Walked across Canada)
Julian Assange (WikiLeaks)
Daniel Ellsberg (Pentagon Papers)
General Snus (Best Swede ever)
(I will add to this list, please make suggestions, we need more heroes).

I really have a big problem with racists, homophobes and bigots.
Not a big fan of organised religion either as they often seem to have two out of three--
If I had to choose i think Mahayana Buddhism is the closest I could get, just because I think their multitude of directions and spiritual leaders make it kind of a disorganised religion. (And the rituals are quite fun).


Die Antwoord
22 Pistepirko
Townes Van Zandt
Antony & The Johnsons
Aphex Twin
Seymour Bits
Dean Martin

This list could go on for days, so I will stop now.

Well... I hope you love me and hate me. Nothing in between please

My favorite saying: Live the life you love and love the life you live.

PS: I might add/subtract to this at will. It is late, I have to go to work tomorrow and I had a few glasses of wine.

Got any questions?
just ask

I like the plural. The abundance.

Hey Skurk!

Glad to get to know you on here.

I think you live in one of the most beautiful places on the planet. It's a pleasant coincidence that you and I both have a nautical background; I worked on my stepfather's fishing boats as a kid and was in the US Navy, then when I got out I got a job doing hydrographic surveys as an engineering tech. There's something about the ocean that always pulls you back.

As you've no doubt figured out from my posts, you and I are dead alike in our feelings about homophobes, bigots and racists. I've worked with gays, lesbians, blacks, hispanics - just about every ethnic group and religious group you can name, except maybe Tuvans, lol. Too bad I missed that trip with Dr. Feynman! Anyway, we all bleed red when we are cut, and life is tough enough without sick and ignorant people making it harder for us all.

I'm more interested in what kind of person someone is, not their race, religion or sexual orientation.

Anyway, cheers to you and your family!

Thanks, and all the same to you

There is allways room in casa Nilsen for good people from everywhere if you choose to drop by, and we love to meet new people.
And a good deckhand allways comes handy

Stay positive because they can't keep a good man down
always keep a smile when they want you to frown

Best wishes to you and your family and happy yule-tide.
