Well, that would be why your arguments sounded "serious". Verdande was rambling about how many children and cows he could conceive.

They had to sound serious in order to make people think that Verdande had trolled me. How fortunate that the Stay classy Syria had so many great posts.

Nice to see you've finally accepted Norway as your true master.

That was before we discovered oil. Now we have piss poor swedish immigrants all over the place, begging for work because their government is being manhandled by the EU and doesn't have the god damn balls to deal with the situation.

I never got the big fuss about the Nordic Countries. Yeah, woo, healthcare and all, but still. Vikings were badass, but just about every culture has a group of incredibly badass warriors.

And somewhat off-topic, but the vast majority of settlers had no intention of slaughtering the natives when they first came. There was an estimate in 1491, an excellent book by Charles C. Mann, that disease killed around 95% of the native population. At that point, the Settlers would be stupid not to take all the land that suddenly freed up.

Yet millions of Norwegians flock to Sweden to shop for cheap goods because lots of stuff they sell are horribly overpriced back in Norwayland.

Whenever someone mentions them they always act like they're the bacon of countries. "Oh, they have free healthcare, and vikings, and Ikea, and snow, and moose, and heavy metal, and equal rights, and socialism, Yay! Let's all go up north and dye our hair blonde woo!"

I don't have anything against them, it just gets annoying when people pretend they have literally no bad qualities. Not saying this is happening in this thread, just explaining what the "big fuss" is.

Whether it may surprise you or not, some people abroad have an image of Sweden as some perfect socialist heaven on the Earth.

Even Nikita Khrushchev loved Sweden!

Millions might be a bit exaggerated, as there are only about five million inhabitants in Norway. Anyway, we didn't get rich as fuck by being generous with our money.

I'm just telling you what other people think. They hardly know anything of Sweden aside from what they heard on TV / read in a newspaper. And they usually see only praise and admiration, with little to no critique.

You made the right choice by saying no to the EU. Even the Finns are regretting to have joined.

Most who have, are.

I especially like the part about how you can't leave. You'd owe the EU unpayable large amounts of money by attempting to leave.

Sometimes, Ashendant, you are almost as predictable as Slowpokeking.

and has been used since the late 700's by norsemen, thus they are not results of Danish tyranny.

As for :

Orthography reforms making official were carried out in Norway in 1917 and in Denmark in 1948. It has been argued that the only made its way to official Danish spelling due to anti-German and pro-Scandinavian sentiment after World War II. Danish had been the only language apart from German and Luxembourgish to use capitalized nouns in the last decades, but abolished them at the same occasion.
