    I got into whisky when I was 18, I remember having tasted a sip from my dads whiskies now and again, and always thought it was like getting perfume in the mouth. Needless to say, I wasn't a big fan.

    One day, he let me try a Laphroaig 10 years, and I've been hooked ever since. Shortly after there was a local tasting focusing solely on Islay's that we went to together. I was the youngest there by far, and I still remember a guy around 60 commenting how the smokey whiskies were an acquired taste that you had to strive to learn to enjoy. For me, it was just love at first sip!

    Among others we had a Port Ellen that day, which was nice, but I definitely wouldn't pay as much as they cost.

    Excellent! Oneplus has been releasing the developer previews for the Oneplus 6, so hopefully the wait won't be too long!

    Fair enough! I've been binge-reading him, so I'll probably start on something else afterwards and then read some more later on.

    Have you read any of his other books, not Genghis or Caesar?

    Better Call Saul is fantastic! Looking much forward to the next season. I'm hoping I can get my girlfriend to watch the first seasons before it starts.

    I'm currently reading Conqueror by Conn Iggulden, the last in his series about the mongol empire. Apart from that I'm also reading God - A biography by Jack Miles

    I've been fat since my early teens until I started intermittent fasting that I learned about through paleo. I used to always be incredibly hungry just a few hours after breakfast.
    It seems I thrive better with fewer meals where I actually get full, than trying to eat many small meals.

    I'm still following it loosely, but sometimes I'll have breakfast anyway, I just eat when I feel hungry which is often twice a day, but sometimes more.

    I got down quite now in weight, but my strength suffered, now I carry a bit more fat than I'd like, but I'm overall pretty happy about my looks and performance.

    I still eat fairly low carb, but I feel better with some carbs around weighttraining sessions.
