    I thought firearms here were quite reasonably priced considering the market and availability.

    The fact of the matter is that we were too good. We had moose, wolves and bears once. ONCE!

    But the reports aren't meant for internal use only. There are thousands of people abroad who are interested in statistics, laws and information about Nordic countries for their own business and research. Additionally, not everyone who lives in Sweden speaks swedish. Most governmental websites display a lot of material in English for this exact reason.

    It has absolutely nothing to do with bragging.

    Pff, you own fault you let Lego on the floor after you played with it for half the night after the kids went to bed?

    They operate mostly from Odense Steel Shipyard it seems.

    Well all I know is that this guy saw a deer while driving and freaked out. That's understandable tho since those bastards will fuck your car up.

    While hiking through the woods with myself and 2 5-year-olds, though, we saw a fox.

    Foxes are about this big if you've never seen one:



    And this 180+ cm Dane screamed in such a way that I thought it was the 5 year old girl.

    Best. Outdoors trip. EVER

    The world economy and banking system still runs through the USA and UK, and its not like the Nordic countries are higher when it comes to purchasing power. Norway is the only one that's higher than us. I bet the combined GDP of the Anglopshere is more than a quarter of the worlds. Maybe a more fair comparison is Canada and California as our team.

    I believe I read recently that they shifted their actual shipbuilding to asia. Either China or Korea.

    The point is you guys aren't as rustic as your northern neighbors and it's as fun to drag you into the wilderness for a day as it is someone from New York City.

    Eh, most of us are used enough to deer and foxes. Mooses throw us a bit off as well as wolves though. I personally hate nature and all arachnids larger than a button needs to die in a fire.

    Come over here and try our coffee Rich! It will change your mind ;P

    Found this guy's channel a few weeks back, English guy who moved to Northen Sweden, he's brilliant(esp when he orders "nigger balls") rofl


    ps. I don't think this forum is the best way to judge your average Swede
    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...

    I came here for the tits, now I'm disappointed.
    "1 in 4 Americans are skeptical on climate change...who gives a shit? That doesn't matter. You don't need other people's opinions on a fact. You may as well have a poll asking: Which number is bigger? 5 or 15? Do Owls exist? Are there hats?"

    I have done that. In a zoo. And with a polar bear no less. A meter from the cage - only bars between me and them. And dear lord, they are huge...
