About Me

Check out my (old) CS "About Me":
https://www.couchsurfing.com/users/1098848/profile/legacy

...mean couchsurfing remakings, however, deleted most of the bullshit I tediously amassed during 6 years of CS membership. Shame on you CS.

January 2016: yeaaah, let me keep going on complaining. CS references. Pre-reference system update i had 125 positive references; post system update it's 115 positive references + 10 nothing/joker references. Makes total sense. This new reference system truly is "less-than-positive".

CURRENT MISSION
Trade my A4 sheet of paper for an Audi of the same type.

ABOUT ME
I love Juicy Fruit chewing gum; I like to sip Cherry Cokes, Mint Juleps & Old Fashioneds, and nibble on beef steaks. Climb mountains, break the sound barrier on my race bike and stroll around pretty much anywhere.
I moved to Hungary and work as a management consultant.
Previously, I lived&worked in Lima and Toronto; and back home in Germany. I lived 20+ years in zee Vaterland, so it was time to get out of zerre...have been livin' in Hungary for ~7 years now. Yepp, that´s it in a nutshell. M'kay?

Oh, did you know: 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321

Furthermore, I'm a good procrastinator. But I will tell you more about that later.

PHILOSOPHY

Make sure the juice is worth the squeeze.

"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don't much care where –" said Alice.
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

and listen to: Borodin, Prokofiev, Grieg, Chopin, Fatboy Slim & Chemical Brothers and a buttload of rock bands who are fucking cool as hell

reading:i read tons, and all kinds of stuff. sexy corporate annual reports, F-10K's &Q's, car manuals if i'm sitting in a car, instructions on the barf bag while on a plane, at this very moment i am reading the nutrition value of the yogurt pot on my table. i am very much interested in everything. but mostly about companies and their fuck-ups & peter drucker`s writings & kafka, dostoyevsky, hemingway, camus, ayn rand & lot of other shit.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Avalanches, giant glaciers, cubic-mile icebergs, earthquakes in peru, arctic sunsets, lightning storms/supercells, arctic snowstorms. apparently I am impressed by natural phenomena.

One night I had that dream of eating a giant marshmallow, the next morning my pillow was gone.

Teach, Learn, Share

i can teach you Krav Maga (...how to wreak havoc in 2,5 seconds)
&
investing/short selling
&
lots of other rather useless fun crap

What I Can Share with Hosts

Mi casa es tu casa.

But then again, don't push it: e.g. shaving your balls with my razor naked in the kitchen is not that cool as you might have thought. 💩ing on my plants is also a no-go (but you might mix it in with the soil to fertilize).
Geeez, some common sense & don't be a douche, m'kay?
