Oh my, and I fell for it too... T_T I fail at being european...Im kidding XD that's based of a really bad joke about some Americans thinking there actualler ARE polarbears in Sweden, because it can get soo cold. xD
Lol, thanks. ^^ But I admit, even though I like sweden because of this, I never really bothered to learn anything about sweden. x_xAnd that was the cutest story ever, it actually REALLY touched me. I dont mind Sweden being yours. ^^ you can keep it that way for sure!
My "bond" to sweden only shows like in national competitions (like that singing one) where I always cheer for either sweden or my own country (germany). I actually don't know anything about sweden, beside what the flag looks like.
I couldn't imagine to live in such a cold country. X___XBut actually, I can sympathize. As I said somewhere (I think in this thread), I lived in North Dakota. A place where the average year-round temperature was -10F with windchill (or so it seemed), and if it wasn't snowing almost non-stop for 6 months out of the year, every person in the state would be convinced of the reality of global warming.
For my taste even germany is much to cold... T_T
I only live in summer, the rest of the year I just survive until the next summer... (a kind of hibernation? my school grades are also always down in winter and good in summer.....)
Yeah, those are pretty much all the "information" about the netherlands that I grew up with and we are neighbours... x_xHey, I'm Dutch... I walk on wooden shoes, fix dykes with my index finger, sniff at tulips AND I smoke pot and go to the Red light district...
Nice to see this topic this active. I actually like to talk about different countries and their differences to others. I'm mostly anti-glabalisation, because I like it to know that there are places that are "different". Of course waring because of differences sucks, but I like it to "learn" about different ways of different peoples. Imagine the world becomes one nation, everything mixes and blends and you go to japan and people look and act the same like in your home country. =/
