While it seems that it is relatively easy to buy BTC in the US, what are good methodes for the European people?

While most exchanges offer bank wire - it is a slow progress that takes several days. Liberty Dollars are expensive. Paypal is not safe.

What are fast and reliable ways to buy BTC as a Euroepan?

How much are you trying to buy?  I'm in the UK perhaps we could meet up and exchange GBP for BTC.

Last week used SEPA bank transfer to Mt Gox and it worked fine (but apparently SEPA transfers in EUR are now closed until next week). It took 2/3 working days and I didn't pay any fees.

What's the point of purchasing bitcoins? Most places that accept bitcoins as payment also seem to accept standard currencies as well.

I understand some advantages, but given the value fluctuation wouldn't investing actual cash be kinda risky? Unless you bought bitcoins for insanely cheap of course, then it'd just be like the stock market and you could return a decent profit

When you mine for bitcoins you are also investing actual cash in electricity and perhaps hardware.
Last month a bitcoin was worth $30. If that price is reached again during august, you will double the amount invested right now. Some people may think that it is worth a shot. But yes, butcoins are a high risk investment right now.

But besides monetary value, he could use them to buy stuff online anonymously or to transfer money to a distant friend.

Their orderbook shows very little activity... Do you usually trade there?

I usually trade at Britcoin, Intersango's sister site, which has a far larger orderbook — although nowhere near Mt Gox's. Intersango is a very recent exchange. Give it time. . . .
