Cheating galore

11 Dec 2019

Kids these days... how lucky they are! I came across all these gadgets for making passing exams so much easier than back in my days when not even smart phones were around. I tried scribbling important notes in the palm of my hand, but was caught and never dared try it again. Today it's a different story altogether and I wonder what teachers have to do to stay up to date with all the tricks students might be pulling. it is fascinating though!

Skiing done right

16 Nov 2018

Many people go for holidays at popular skiing resorts from about this time of year and all the way until March or April when the skiing season is officially over. All over Europe, from Northern Scandinavia all the way down to Italy and even Greece, there are various skiing resorts on snowy locations. The different places vary in popularity and also in pricing.

The Ibiza of the Alps

The most loved and probably at the same time the most expensive skiing resorts are those found in the French Alps, like Val Thorens. Skiing in Val Thorens is usually about more than skiing - a common nickname for this village is "the Ibiza of the Alps" which draws a clear picture. The person who wants to spend their days in snowy, tree-less slopes and their nights in loud nightclubs nedd to look no further.

Guidance to the best resorts

What you need to do to make your skiing holiday a really great experience is to carefully evaluate your needs and wishes; your budget; your company; and your timeline. Do you prioritize quality over more days in the snow? The perhaps you should make your skiing holiday short but sweet. If it is more important to stay away as long as possible, then search for cheap destinations and packages. 

If it is more important with natural beauty and family friendlyness, then Val Thorens is probably not a great choice, but there are so many other fantastic skiing destinations to explore. On freeride.com you can find great guidance.

Satisfying videos

19 Sep 2017

I have this weakness for watching "satisfying" video clips, and judjing from their popularity, I'm not the only one. I don't know what it is about all this slime balls being cut; the metal bars being bent as if they were made of plastic; or the slicing of perfect salmon fillets. It's just... satisfying. Do you agree?

Walking Wilds is an excellent innovative feature and a true highlight of this slot, that was developed for Jack and the Beanstalk game specifically. 

Here is how it works: the wild symbol lands on reel 5 and starts "walking" to the left of the reels and gives you one re-spins for each step until it finally disappears from the game reels. In total, this gives you six spins for the price of one and all the profits will be added to your game balance. The best thing is that more than one walking wild symbol can appear on the reels giving you even more than 6 spins and massive benefits.

Paint walls the right way

19 Feb 2017

So, I've just finished painting my bedroom at home and it was the first time ever that I dared try such a project all by my self. I was watching zillions of video clips like the one below before getting started, and I did everything by the book. I am so glad I tried it because it was not all that difficult actually. Sure, it's a bit time consuming, but if you have time it's quite a pleasant job to do. Put on some good tunes and lose yourself to the colours. The result is great too!
