In December 2010 a group of cool guys from my class at Copenhagen Business School decided that it would be cool to throw a party in the subway. And so they did. They created an event on facebook where 1600+ people were attending (not that many actually showed up, but holy carp it was packed!)
We were lucky enough not to get caught by the police or get fined, but the whole thing ended up in chaos at the second to last scheduled stop and we got thrown off the subway. Good times!
Here's a video I made:

This music video is fantastic. I'm sure that you've heard LMFAO - Party Rock Anthem and you've probably also seen the video. I always try to shuffle whenever this song comes on but I fail miserably every single time. Darn it!

As much as I love Starbucks and I want them open more stores in Copenhagen, I think it's weird that they open another store at the airport. They already have 2 out there! This one is placed in terminal 3. It'll be fun to see how many stores they can actually open at the airport. I bet you the luggage handlers are gambling illegally on the excact number of stores that will open within the next year. Poor Fernando will probably lose his life savings along with his sombrero if he doesn't stop gambling soon.
My suggestion: Open a store on Strøget.
Here's the original article

Peeing in public now costs DKK 1000 (if you get caught by the police - otherwise it's totally free!) in Copenhagen. The fine used to be DKK 600 but I guess the streets are getting so flooded with piss that the state had to do something about it. Think about all the people that don't know how to swim!
Tips for not getting caught peeing in public:
1. Pee before you leave your house!
2. Don't pee in daylight!
3. Be quick! Practice forcing the pee out faster when at home.
4. Look like youre doing something else! If you're in front of a restaurant that has its menu on the wall - perfect! Look like you're reading the menu (preferably without using your hands).
5. Be a cop. Cops don't care about the rules - they can do what they want.
6. If you pee in a plastic bag you're not really showing your genitals (or pee) in which case you're not really peeing in public - but in a plastic bag.
The article below also states that it now costs DKK 3000 in fines to get in a fight or provoke others to get into a fight. If you're just being drunk on the street doing stuff like kicking a street sign you'll have to either pay DKK 1000 with your life savings or win them on sports betting. Either way, we're screwed.

DTF Travel - Disturbing Much? 5:07 PM
Tuesday, May 10
Pretty interesting stuff - I never thought about this. However, now I start thinking. My friends and I go out 2 times per week. Sometimes 3. This one crazy Swede that I know went out 5 times (Holy Carp!) in a row a couple of weeks back. If the Brits spend 5 years being hungover, then us Danes (and this freakin awesome Swede whose name shall remain a surprise) must spend at least 8 or 9! If we go out twice as many times during the 17 years from 21 to 38 then we must also be hungover twice as many times. It's at least 8 or 9 years dude! When you die you've spent a tenth of your life feeling like sh*t! The sad part is that I'm actually kind of proud of it.
Let's not stop here!
What do we eat when we are hungover? We eat junk food, chips or something like that, right? We then eat junk food 2 times a week - and don't forget the pizza slice or cheeseburgers when you are actually out drinking, so let's say 3 times per week just to round off. We eat 3 meals a day. 3*7 = 21. 3/21 = 1/7! One seventh of ALL of our our meals are junk food. This means that at least once a week you eat a Big Mac meal for breakfast, probably something a little healthy for lunch like a Chicken, Bacon & Ranch footlong sub, and a Whopper Meal for Dinner. And you do this 884 times (17*52) in your primetime. Coolio.
Well, I'll see you Thursday, Friday and Saturday! Let's get wasted!

I Just Crashed On My Bike 11:19 AM
It was a pretty serious crash though. The brakes on my bike don't work anymore and the chain keeps falling off, which was why I crashed. Forutnately for me (unfortunately for you as it would have been a great story) I didn't really get injured. I got this scratch on my knee that stings though, so If you have a knee fetisch I'm sorry to disappoint you, but there will be no licking tonight.
This little stunt will probably cost me this month's rent. The weird thing about this crash was when it happened the only thing I could think of was: "Holy carp! I can totally blog about this!"
Have a nice day.

Cheap Monday Party In Copenhagen 4:33 PM
Cheap Monday in Copenhagen threw a pretty awesome party last night with free beers and random live bands that were actually kinda good. This is the first time I've actually been at this store.
I didn't know that there was a guest list so now everybody at Cheap Monday thinks my name is Christian. Oh well, don't judge me - they had free beers!
I usually don't go to these store parties but this one was pretty cool. Too bad they ran out of beer after 2 hours, but I guess that's kinda long since there were hundreds of people.
Here are some pictures! If you find the owl I'll send you something!*

Because it's May 1 today Fælledparken was totally crowded and when I walked through the park (it's right next to the FCK stadium) it smelled like a combination of piss and waffles. Now, I don't know about you but piss and waffles isn't my favorite deodorant. I'm not really a big fan of May 1 but if you're visiting Copenhagen Fælledparken is the place to be if you want to experience some culture.
