    1. Well he’s probably counting time spent sleeping as well. I’m guessing this was filmed in the same month as it was uploaded, so judging from the light in Denmark in February it looks to be a bit past noon.
      If his last meal of the day was his dinner at maybe 6 or 7 PM (seems to be a pretty normal time to have dinner). So he just have to have skipped his breakfast (like a lot of kids his age do) and it could certainly be around 20 hours since his last meal.

      I know that I’ll sometimes sleep for 12+ hours at a time, so I’ve certainly gone without food for more than 20 hours on numerous occasions. It hasn’t really been good for my health and it probably won’t be beneficial to his work-outs either :)

      This reply got a lot more in depth and longer than I wanted!

  1. Well, that was a first for me. While I’ve seen the “belly vacuum” before I had never seen the rest of the exercises he did. I can’t even begin to figure out how to do them myself. He looks like he’d be a lot of fun.

      1. Why?

        His accent is a mixture between American and proper English. I am glad that it is mostly closer to proper English; always nice to hear it.

      1. Thanks, now I’m able to watch it!!!
        By the way – there was only very low music in the background. I’ve had always the suspicion, that they might pretend that as a reason…

    1. Good job I clicked that link. I was going to type that out. Apparently he’s bisexual and goes to a boarding school, (hopefully single sex). Lovely bulge.

      1. I doubt it’s an all-male boarding school. This type of school almost always have both genders.
        It’s not actually a boarding school, but it’s the most fitting word for it in english. In Denmark we call it “Efterskole”, which directly translates to “After School”. 9th grade is the last mandatory class level in Denmark and a lot of teens will go to an efterskole for 8th, 9th or 10th grade (optional).
        You do live and go to school there, but it focuses a lot on the social aspect and also teaches you how to take care of yourself. You’re taught things like cooking, cleaning and other things that you need to know for living on your own.

        A lot of schools will have a theme. Some might focus on sports, drama design or computers etc. There’s even really specific stuff like role-play or hunting/fishing.
        They generally tend to focus more on creativity or physical activity instead of the usual academic subjects.

        The key part of it is the social interaction between the students. It’s a bit like a summer camp, but with studying.

        1. Thats exactly how we pronounce and spell After and School in the Scots Language in Scotland. So I am going to church later tonight, would be, “Am goan tae the kirk efter the nicht”. Theres a lot of Norse words and blood in Scotland, especially in the North East where a Scottish Government DNA programme found over 80% Viking markers in the North East of Scotland and 50% overall in Scotland.

        2. That’s pretty cool! Our word for church is actually “Kirke” so it’s not that different from yours either.
          Languages do borrow a lot of words from each other. I believe that the words School and Skole both come from the ancient Greek “Skola” (can’t really spell it in ancient Greek). It’s fun to see how one word can transform into so many others.

        3. Scots have a lot of words, (I’m not talking about the Celtic tongue here, but the lowland tongue), that is far less Francophile than standard English and is the closest to Frisian, closer even than English. A cow is pronounced “coo”, a sheep, “yeu”, a child “bairn”, a hill “brae”, eye is “ee”, ear is “lug” dog is “hund”, mud is “glauir”, walk is “gang”, know is “ken”, long is “lang”, small is “sma”, snow is “sna”, stone is “sten”, toe is “tae” ect. A lot of these words will be familiar to our Scandinavian near neighbours across the North Sea.

        4. I recognize a few of them. dog is also “Hund” in Danish and while “Gang” isn’t used in everyday speech, is does mean walk. It’s used for the way a horse walks for example. “Lang” is also long and stone is “sten”.

          There’s a bunch of similiar words as well. Like child is “Barn”, cow is “Ko”, know is “Kend”.
          We spell the letter å as aa if we don’t have access to a danish keyboard, so toe and small are quite similar as well. We spell them as small = “små” and toe is “tå”.

          I’m sorry we got so off-topic, but I thought it was pretty interesting :)

          “I’m sorry we got so off-topic, but I thought it was pretty interesting”

          Don’t apologize …. I found it to be very interesting reading.

          “American” English has a huge portion of its vocabulary to thank to the various European factions (and, today, as well as Japan, China, Mexico & South America ….. oops, almost forgot, some Aussie lingo as well [we wouldn’t have any “shrimp on the barbie” without them]).

          One’s language (native or otherwise) is a very interesting topic on its own.

        6. I loved the comparisons of languages!! Thanks guys. I am American but have spent time in Scotland, Denmark, Germany, England, Wales and many more European countries. Scotland and Denmark were places where I had the most problems with language but I was made very comfortable by the locals and had a great time in both. I have lineage in German, Scotland and Denmark. I have been to the property that was from my mother’s family in Denmark and we have Royal connections.

  2. Nice guy I watched his video on homophobia and thought it was really well said. His English like most scandinavians is awesome but his accent is very strange. It is like a cross between London Cockney, Ali G style street slang and Australian. Does not sound obviously Danish and must admit it gave me the giggles.

    1. He does have a quite strange accent. It seems to have changed a bit as well when you watch some of his older videos. I find it very endearing though :)

  3. @whiterabbit I have always found Norwegians and Danes to sound like Geordies and Weirsiders though curiously not the Swedes. As I say though this lad has a strange accent. I bet he has picked it up from chatting online most like. He uses “mate” not “buddy” so definitely been more influenced by Brits and Antipodeans than Yanks but it is intriguing. I always find accents intriguing and Danes seem to be good at picking them up. Jan Morby sounds like he is a born and bred Scouser (Liverpool) and Peter Schmichel sounds like a Manc too when he wants to.

  4. Umm… no one else got that this kid is anorexic and is starving himself to death for your entertainment? If you “love” this boy, this has to be disturbing.

    1. He’s obviously brimming over with good health; anorexics do not look like that. Plus he also obviously comes from an educated, upper-class Danish family (see his home videos); they would not let him abuse his body.

  5. Anorexia Nervosa is a disease of the well-off. It is done for various deep psychological reasons, among which is a pathological need to “be accepted” or “loved.” When poor people starve to death, it is not intentional, it is simply starvation. This young man is not healthy. He is a beautiful child and should be helped, not masturbated to.

    1. This lad is not anorexic; he practices yoga, and for this type of exercise it is required to fast for whole day prior.
