Who is Geir Ove Klefsåsvold?

I am an eccentric and kind man with a twinkle in his eyes and loose laughter that comes from Stjørdal in Nord-Trøndelag (Norway), and was born an early winter day in 1974 CE. As of today I loom 196 cm above ground level. Most of my childhood and adolescence have unfortunately been classified as Top Secret Level 47 by Section 31, Department of Suppression and Classification of Horrid Children, so I think I will keep myself far away from this delicate wasps nest to avoid a particularly extreme and unpleasant criminal prosecution.

I can probably say that football does not interest me whatsoever, and I observe with a heavy heart that one can hardly turn on a TV before being bombarded with meaningless football matches, football news, and football discussions. If this babble is not served, then one is exposed to just as irrelevant empty talk about the latest reality show or media-generated "crises" and artificial fear creating stories. If you open the newspaper you get exactly the same. The fact that 200 people have been killed in ethnic clashes in southern Sudan seems negligible here, and is perhaps mentioned in a short note on page 50. The front pages serve only "important" news of apocalyptic tick invasions and pictures of a trembling mother who has seen a lone wolf a few miles away; more photos and interviews with experts on page 3-40.

In addition I can also honestly say that I am one of the very few who actually does not care about who wins what at the Olympics, World Championships, NM, etc. On the other hand, I expect I will follow with an observant eye if someone finally manages to perform Quidditch in practice. Then I will probably come running with great elegance, both as a keen observer and enthusiastic performer.

I am often observed with a dreamy gaze up at the stars, or with my nose firmly planted into a good, thick book. I have it otherwise best when I'm on top - who does not? Wish that time passed more slowly and looking forward to be well over 500 years old. I am also described as friendly, funny, thoughtful, poetic, joyful, enthusiastic, polite, eccentric and weird. I do not have kids, dogs, cats or goldfish, but sometimes my couch gets infected with a dust bunny collection and a few school ready tomatoes live in my refrigerator. I also often muse about why my clothes always after a couple of months maturing in the closet become too tight and bulges in all the wrong places.



    ...all life is but a set of pictures in the brain, among which there is no difference betwixt those born of real things and those born of inward dreaming, and no cause to value the one above the other.

H.P. Lovecraft, "The Silver Key"
      I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.

Stephen F. Roberts

“What is life? An illusion, a shadow, a story, And the greatest good is little enough: for all life is a dream, and dreams themselves are only dreams.“
