opebo, you've probably answered this a lot, but I've never read it.  Why are you in Thailand?

I prefer living here to living the the States:  better climate, much better food, and Thai women are nice.  Most importantly I can live like a king here on my income, instead of merely middle class like back home.  For example living in a hotel a few steps from the beach costs about $180 a month with maid service, and a delicious meal - with fresh ingredients (something you don't find in the US) costs about $1.

But though Thailand is my favorite, there are many other countries I'd like to try, particularly in South America generally.

You should try Somalia.

Ilikeverin got it right, sort of. Asatru is a generic term for a number of very, very closely religions based on Germanic heathenism. I tend to follow the Anglo-Saxon branch, mostly because I'm 96% British, but Scandinavian and Pan-Germanic versions are also popular.

We are polytheistic, and believe in Woden, Thunor, Frigga, and such. And while Asatruars are generally conservative (infinitly more so than the ultra-liberal wiccans, to say the least), I imagine we'd probably scare the hell out of the religious right. Cheesy

It would be interesting to post some sort of demographics from the forum.
