    Well, ok. I've been in the spotlight for long enough. I was quite flattered that people wanted to know more about me, for better or worse. Perhaps I shattered some stereotypes, perhaps reinforced others. Who knows?

    Next up is Avatar, with a messed up avatar.

    A few q's to get started...

    You say you are a lawyer/university student in your profile---what are you studying at university and what type of law do you practice?

    What's your favorite book?

    Which country/city are you from?

    What thing do you LOVE about America? (You can't say ``nothing''!!!)

    What the hell is your avatar?

    1. I'm studying for masters degree in law at the Latvian University.
    My speciality is international law, but at the moment I practice mostly public law (writing laws, participating in drafting parties) and civil law (contracts for the gov, etc).

    2. "Lavondyss" by Robert Holdstock

    3. I'm from Riga (the capital), Latvia.

    4. Rock n roll music. And Patti Smith. And stories about native americans. And native american myths. My favourite is about the sons of the Sun.

    5. Eye of Horus. An ancient Egyptian symbol.
    Read about it here: http://altreligion.about.com/library/glossary/symbols/bldefseyeofhorus.htm

    I've lived many years along the Baltic sea coast during my childhood and that's where most people in summers go to relax, but I've not been a 'seafaring' person.
    I have a dream of a two mast white sail boat though, but that's not in near future.

    1. As any boy around here I have had a romantic view on them, their ways and history due to westerns and books. In USSR native americans were very popular.
    Warrior people, wise in the ways of nature. All my life I've been very close to nature and one American tourist even said I look like a white native american.

    Hard to tell, there are many important ones that I've done. I think it was to study law above anything else. It has given me freedom and life I enjoy more.

    1. I don't know what the average is, but many people think I am.
    2. Hiking, community work, filmmaking (just learning), Taekwon-Do, my independent research in human mind that I haven't clearly defined yet.
    3. As much as I can. I'm very busy these months though, so less than I would like to.

    Wait, No, No, Yes. Putin is a very good president for Russia. So yes, I do like him although I don't support his methods outside of Russia.

    1. I played a lot when I learned at school, not anymore. These days about one game a year or less. I find it a very unproductive waste of my time. My favourite video game is Deus Ex.

    2. Egypt.

    3. Yes - more work done in the same time! That's a great idea!

    The best one personally for me and my country - Jeltsin. We got our freedom from the USSR under him.
