Create your own visitor


When you get what you want in your struggle for self
and life makes you king for a day
just go to a mirror and look at yourself
And see what that man has to say.

For it isn't your father, mother or wife,
who judgment upon you must pass
no, the fellow whose verdict means most in your life
is the one staring back from the glass

He's the fellow to please, never mind all the rest
because he's with you straight up to the end
and you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test
if the man in the glass is your friend

Some people may think you're a straight-shooting' chum
and call you a wonderful guy
but the man in the glass says you're only a bum
if you can't look him straight in the eye

You may fool the whole world down the pathway of life
and get pats on your back as you pass
but your final reward will be heartaches and tears
if you've cheated the man in the glass.

Dale Wimbrow 1895-1954

I have learned CS project while hitchiking to the North of Norway (Lofoten islands Bodo)...I have experienced my first couchsurf in Tromso.Asbjörn gave us his flat's key,his laptop and gave us two bikes.It was unbelievable experience cuz norwegian folks were not so friendly in general and dont trust foreigners.So by this way,I have ended prejudging and streotyping people.And understand that if people can trust each other,world would be better place to live.
