@lbisno1 Dutch and English are relatively close, and Dutch and German are ridiculously close.

I'm confused to hear French is so hard to learn for English native speakers, though - I think English is closer to French than Dutch.

Flemish-Dutch sounds really sweet :ohcute:

@Wortel I studied German in school last year, so I know some German. And from what I've heard, German is pretty similar to Dutch, so it shouldn't be too much of a challenge to linguistically adapt. Also, I've heard that Dutch is one of the easiest languages for native English-speakers to learn, and French is one of the hardest.

Granted. Due true a strange crash in the time-space web (maybe caused by someone who is not magical trying to learn to do magic) the TV comet takes the time tunnel and lands on your kindergarten building while you were in it. The building, five-year-old you and your little friends are destroyed. The entire thing is really painful, and right after you're definitively dead your current you starts painfully disappearing. It's more painful in the psychological way than in the physical way, but it's awful and takes two weeks.

I wish kiddie Uktana got into kindergartener heaven and could play with his friends all day.

@uktana he could've fallen from a tree and landed on a branch with a leg on each side of the branch, so he basically landed on his private parts.
A friend of mine apparently had that once, and allegedly his private parts got all kinds of interesting colors :shocked:

The Jewish calendar is lunisolar, but I'd say not that often.

On a minor sidenote, it's Anzac (Rememberance) Day tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand.

@Boingyboingy Did your doctor tell you to stop with cow-milk for 6 weeks? Our doctor told us to stop eating milk products for a few days and see if it got better. It didn't so we started again. A month later we found out that it takes much longer for the milk protein to go out of the mothers milk so after about 4-6 weeks it started to improve and our daughter could sleep without crying or being rocked to sleep constantly. Milk protein allergy is very tricky to get around, there is milk protein in almost everything.

Wiki says today is both Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) and Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day.

I don't know much about how the Jewish Lunar Calendar works. Do they coincide very often?

At any rate, it's a good time to get wasted and dwell on what bastards humans are.

"Thank you for mansplaining"

Uhm, no. If you say something that's nonsense, and I tell you how things actually are, it has nothing at all to do with you being a woman.

I would have acted exactly the same way if you were a guy.

How to break Iceland's spirit 3 hours ago #9626160      

@marce I'm sorry I haven't got back to you sooner but I've been rather busy and didn't feel like leaving you just a quick, half-arsed answer.

Well I suppose Sweden's history IS a bit rough. We just like to forget that little detail as most of it happened centuries ago anyways.

When I referred to your rough history I meant the guerrillas and what (to me) seems like political instability. But that may all be over now? I never got to the current-day part of your history.

People: From the sound of things the Bogota people seems rather similar to your average Swede in terms of social behavior. However since the average Colombian appears to be what would be considered as borderline unusually helpful here in Sweden then maybe Bogota people are friendlier than Swedes still, not that Swedes aren't friendly mind you. It's just that we would never spare time to walk someone to their destination if we were heading elsewhere. I suppose that difference is due to our differing views on the importance of punctuality. You see in Sweden punctuality is key. You must always be on time or preferably a few minutes early and it is completely unthinkable to be late for even a minute. However if you are invited to someone's home arriving too early would be just as inconsiderate as being late.

Fruits: That's... that's a lot of strange and tasty looking fruits. I've only heard the names of a select few of them and only tasted one of them once (the starfruit). Sweden doesn't have any indigenous fruits at all and few imported fruits are grown here as well. We mostly have berries like lingonberry, blueberry and cloudberry (which in jam-form is a must try for anyone visiting Sweden for culinary reasons)
Also, I'll have to redact my statement about bananas in Sweden coming from Brasilia. Apparently we import bananas mostly from Ecuador followed by Costa Rica and Colombia.

Climate: huh. I never knew Colombia had so meny and so different climates (although before this conversation I didn't know more about Colombia than that it is a country in South America). When it comes to Swedish climate this article says it all (or at least most of it) https://sweden.se/nature/swedish-weather-and-nature/
That's actually the official website of Sweden so you can probably find tons of information about Sweden and Swedish culture there.

Landscape: Wow. Just wow. I know you said breathtakingly beautiful but that's a whole new level of breathtakingly. Sweden's more subtle beauty kind of pales compared to that.

What are the things that makes me proud of being a swede? Wow. That's a big question.
I think it is the fact that we're one of the best countries in the world and no that is not a bias statement. We usually end up within the top thirty of any survey of any kind and have a solid foothold in the top ten of several surveys that (according to me) count the most, like: best country in the world, environmental awareness and preservation, equality, innovation, and quality of living just to name a few.

If you're really interested in visiting Sweden I'd recommend watching some of these videos Visit Sweden Travel Videos: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhHcxDH6KFHppSZy-7G2GemtkFCJQ44ot
They bring up a lot of good points to think about before going, both positive and negative ones. And if you're more interested in Sweden in general I suggest browsing around on that page I linked earlier.

Huh. We did. I don't really follow the Nobel Prize. I'll never get one anyways :p
