A good compromise is a situation in which all parties involved are slightly disappointed.

I enjoy the history of architecture to the point of obsession. I also enjoy the great outdoors. I try to focus my work on Wikipedia on Estonia- and Sweden-related articles, but I go wherever my interests take me and may end up contributing an article about liturgical combs or trying to tackle a subject which is really too big for me. Some of the things I've enjoyed in particular are an attempt at covering the topic of the exquisite churches on Gotland and an equally megalomaniac attempt at covering the topic of manor houses in Estonia.

I try to separate my private life and Wikipedia, but this doesn't mean I'm withdrawn.

Good articles, although I've only been through about half of them by now. You might want to apply for autopatrolled right, as I noticed that some of them had stayed unreviewed for quite a long time. Widr (talk) 13:30, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

About Dricku[edit]

Dricku is the national beverage of Gotland. The rest of the world is (thankfully) spared. It symbolizes and embodies the rebellious nature of Gotlanders and the harsh island. The un-official and very secret recipe for dricku is this: Take one (1) fairly large juniper. Hack it into moderately large pieces and place in a jerrycan. Do not remove anything! Dirt cleanses your system and spiders and bugs add flavor and protein. Add water and whatever is left in your pantry. Ferment until strong. The alcohol content is always a mystery, do not measure it. Dricku is the only beverage which can be consumed by people who never drink alcohol (see aforementioned mystery). It is also exempt from all laws and regulations about the selling, drinking and handling beverages. Note: All of the above is only valid on Gotland. An annual Dricku-making World Championship is held on Gotland at some illustrious location with a population larger that 14, Ref [1], Ref [2]. - w.carter-Talk 11:57, 6 November 2014 (UTC)
