I'm an American Fur -- Ask Me Anything
« på: 24. nov, 2011, 22:52 »
Hi Norwegian furs,

Do you want to know anything about the furry fandom in America? Or what it's like to have 26 C weather for 11 months out of the year in Texas? I'll answer whatever questions you have -- about me, the US, deconstructionist analysis of post-modernist feminist literature -- whatever. =P Ask me anything!

There's a furry fandom in the US? Just kidding ^^
Always fun to meet and greet people from across the pond.

Ok, some quick easy once then:
- Where you from (I guess Texas, US)
- Age, gender, occupation?
- Why visit Europe?
- How long have you been in the fandom?
- First time abroad or visiting other fur communities?
- Is the cake a lie?
- Know any scandinavian furs already?

I'm from Austin, Tx.
I'm in my mid-twenties, a guy, and I'm a university undergraduate studying studio art.
I'm seriously considering emmigrating out of the US, probably to Sweden but also possibly to Norway, because A) our healthcare system is terrible B) our politics is terrible C) our justice system is terrible, etcetera. There are also some other reasons, but the simple truth is that Norway and Sweden are better countries than the US. Not that we're setting a high standard or anything...
I've been in the fandom for 12 years.
I've only been abroad once, in London for about a week.
I don't always reply to memes with another meme, but when I do, I pretend I'm Canadian and I'm sorry.
Yeah, I know a couple of Swedes -- I'll be staying with one near Helsingborg, actually. I've been hoping to get to know some Norwegians =3

The most important question of all is..
Do you play Magic the Gathering?
If you already have plans to move to sweden why visit norway? just to compare?
if so, that means we have to be better than the swedes! (Not like we will have a hard time with that)

YES, I do play magic! I played it for the first time a couple of weeks ago =3 I've only played it that one time, though, so I'm quite new.

Yeah, I'd like to compare Norway and Sweden. I've mostly focused on Sweden because they've been more heavily written about in popular press and it's been easier to get ahold of Swedes online. I know very little about Norway but I would like to know more, and I've considered studying there -- I'll probably either study in Sweden or Norway next year (currently it looks like Sweden's the most likely, 'cause Norway has no exchange programs with my university, while Sweden has at least two).

Well if you want to chat online, you could contact me by skype if you want (will PM the adress if you want), I'm mostly online at night times here in Norway since i work most evenings.
What are you studying? With the exchange program it would probably be an obvious choice for you, but you cant make any more occasional arrangments with a Norwegian university? Have you checked out any possibilities?

Should bring your deck to Norway, then! Could challange you to a three-way. Or four-way. Or how many want to join.

Who are the Swedes you know? Curious if they're anyone I know. (Though they're probably not.)

I'm guessing your species is... fox?

Do you have a Fur Affinity page?

Play it safe and stick to the exchange program. That way your degree will have a certain safeguard.

Sidenote: Fun enough Norway (especially Oslo) have a influx of Swedish youth looking for jobs. This is mostly as wages in Norway are higher, while cost of living in Sweden is lower. After I moved to our capitol I've gotten quite used to hearing Swedish on a regular basis :)

Sorry for the late reply, guys.

By the way, I'm making this trip to scandinavia 'cause I want to immigrate. I'm serious about this and well educated, so I'm pretty determined to see this through. If it turns out that Norway is a better fit for me than Sweden, it's pretty important for me to realize that sooner than later. MOVING ON.

I don't even have a deck yet for Magic! I just borrowed someone else's. I might just buy one before I head your way, though!

I know a skunk who lives near Helsingborg, a fox in Uppsala, and a hyena in Stockholm.

I'm actually an otter, and I usually go by the alias Masquerade. I don't have anything on FA. Honestly, the only things I have worth sharing are a writing guide and a kinky porn story that was featured on SoFurry for a while. I nuked my stuff, though, 'cause I get a bit...I dunno, anxious about having my work publicly viewable.

I study studio art, Skarpen -- in other words, I'm an artist. I draw naked people.

I've decided to stay in Anker Hostel. What days and when would ya'll like to hang out?
