    32. Niklas Sundin participated in lyrical concepts of In Flames' early releases.

    Haha, yeah, but I think it's the best kept board's secret :D

    That's a Swedish law, so they can't start street-racing, and street-racing involving members of the same band is prohibited in Swerige :)

    40. Mikael Stanne looks like Jesus (or used to, I had a pic of a lunch-box with him)
    41. dt has the same management as some other major Swedish bands
    42. Niklas has only one tattoo (AFAIK)
    43. Martin B. been to Russia touring with Tiamat, while dt's gig was cancelled the last and only time due terrorism threat (there was a major hostage taking incident prior to the date)
    44. dt had a very special gig in Grand Canaria recently

    An hour ago I had the theory that there is a swedish law that you lose your driving licence when you are a good guitar player (because I already knew that in In Flames only the drummer has a driving licence.) but I can forget about that now. Whatever, this law only applies to er... bands... which's name... starts with an I!

    Anyway, is there any short, maybe even informal, word for driving licence? It's such a long word to write, lol.
