With the Holidays close upon us, I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving. As you know, some of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities from time to time, often on the way home after a "social session" with family or friends.

Well, two days ago, this happened to me. I was out for an evening with friends and had more than several whiskies followed by a couple of bottles of rather nice red wine and vodka shots. Although relaxed, I still had the common sense to know I was slightly over the limit.

That's when I did something I've never done before - I took a taxi home! Sure enough on the way there was a police roadblock, but since it was a taxi they waved it past and I arrived home safely without incident.

This was a real surprise to me, because I had never driven a taxi before. I don't know where I got it, and now that it's in my garage I don't know what to do with it... So, anyway, if you want to borrow it give me a call.

Under the Abaddon anomaly in Hamburg last weekend I was assaulted and robbed. I lost everything (passport, money, visa, mobile) and had a temporary amnesia, and when I finally arrived at the airport I was exhausted, wet and cold. I went to the  airport office and all the employees was amazing. I got food, towels, soap and a hot shower, and they lent me a telephone and a computer so I could contact family and the insurance company.
After several hours at the airport office and the police I fell a sleep on a chair. I woke up when I heard my name and Ingress on the speaker and went back to the airport office. One of the employee told med an organization called Ingress and that a man from Enlightened Hamburg was on his way to the airport to pick me up. I can't describe how relieved I was to hear those words. A short while after agent @LipovitanD picked me up and drove me home to his and agent @Silbermilch apartment  where I stayed until the next day. The next day she went with me all the way to the airport where both blue and green agents from Norway waited for me. Back in Norway me and my car got transported all the way home to my apartment.
The solidarity and care the agents from both faction is unbelievable, but this isn't the end of the story. The Enlightened started crowdfunding for me and I got money and a new phone. I've couldn't be more thankful and happy.

Even with a incident like this I will still go out and play, attend anomalies and other events. I had a great time before this happened and I met a lot of fun and great people in both factions.

And please stay together and look after each other <3

I would like to thank all of you who helped me and still supports me from the bottom of my heart, and a special thanks to agents:

@Maxxion
@LipovitanD
