Good News From Scandinavia!

With all the Danish and Norwegian embassies burning, I thought I'd take it upon myself to share some positive news coming from the Scandinavian lands. Naturally, we turn our attention to Sweden.

Home of the Vasa, Volvo, and IKEA, not to mention their massage and fish, Sweden has a plan to remove oil from their economy in fifteen years. And they're gonna do it without building up their nuclear arsenal.

OK, so days in winter may be about ten minutes long, but is there any other reason I shouldn't take my marriage-inherited EU right-to-residency for a spin in Sweden?

Is there baseball in Sweden? There was a guy on the Black Sox nick named the swede, but I don't know if that was the beginning or the end to a baseball tradition.

As one having been forced to experience the Scandinavian version of our common religious heritage, let me tell you that the answer to your question is: Yes, dear god, yes. As you well know, the Germans can make you crazy; them Swedes, however, will fuck you up.

I was seriously thinking about moving to Canada, but not after the recent elections. Maybe Scandinavia is the answer. Or Narnia...

The Swedes have one of the highest rates of alcoholism and suicide on the world. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, but clearly, someone's paying the price for all that Abba gold.
