Sweden
OUR COUNTRY AND CULTURE

So Sweden is a pretty cool guy



gets the Swedish grils



or boys



and doesn't afraid of



Then he goes to his



in the



and eats some



(yep that's dried blood)

and



but he hurts his arm skiing and that's ok because



is FREE!

and also



but our income tax is like



percent

and sales tax is only 8% lower than that so

we're still sad :(


and that pretty much sums up the best country in the Swedish part of the former Swedish Empire.

So let's be Swedish you guys and spread the love and surströmmingslukt





MEETUPS

Let's have some Swedish-GAF meetups!

If you want to arrange a meetup, simply post about in in the thread along with a list people can fill out. I'll post it in the OP if you get any takers, if you want.

I wish I could become a swedish citizen. It's a shame your language is so damn impenetrable, or at least it seems that way.

Finally!

Anyway, you should add a Gothenburg meetup to the OP, pretty sure there are a bunch of us here! Would be awesome.

I don't know, I've witnessed people from countries such as Canada and Japan learn it pretty damn quickly. Also, everyone here speaks English, so it's not like you wouldn't be able to communicate with us until you've learned some Swedish.

The krona is really really strong right now because we avoided a big part of the European financial crisis (more like financial abyss) by not using the Euro and being pretty smart about some stuff, and the dollar is pretty weak so if your American it will be especially expensive right now.

Socialism.

I'm Swedish, proud of it, loving it.

I come from Östersund in the exact middle of Sweden. It's basically the definition of "lagom". Not too big, not too small, not over-populated, not under-populated etc etc.

Will be interesting to see how many Swedes Neo-gaf has lured into its clutches...

Skövde-gaf representing!
Of course, the man with the Mikael Akerfeldt avatar is a swede.

Saw them at least 5 times live. Love it.

Lots of Dutch folks are moving here and they learn the language quite quickly. You are welcome to join us, we can use some skilled immigration! :)

I work with a British guy, he learned it pretty quickly too and I imagine it is harder for him than for a dutchman.

Disney Dags also made my 4 year old self realize that the swedish TV was superior to its norwegian counterpart.
