Nope, we don´t have that good weather here, and we usually don´t use metal for our roofs its way to cold here. And don´t be fooled that easy by the media, its not as bad as they want you to believe.

Posted in: Sweden to recognize Palestinian state See in context

For the commentators above, have you ever been to Sweden? I guess not, what you both are saying is BS. Civil war? are you kidding me? Sweden is still and will be one of the safest places to live and stay in, we don´t have much violence except some places in our major cities (like almost every other country in the world). Look at the US for example, its way more violence crimes over there then in Sweden. In 2012 we had 298 murders and 1989 we had 274 (for the last 30 years Sweden had around 250 murders each year).

And by the way 99,99% of all Muslim immigrants in Sweden are not radical and will never be. And "GalapagosnoGairaishu" btw your "friend" is probably a narrow minded person or just lying to you. Last year there were 21 murders in Goteborg, and 9 so fare for a town with 550,000 people, that's really close to a civil ware (irony).

Immigrants are often not the problem the problem is the world, its changing for the worse, and its up too all of us to except our differences and help each other to create a better world.

Sweden recognize Palestine as a State has nothing to do with anything else then facts, Palestine is a state, Back in 2012 UN (United Nations) declared that Palestine is a state, so more countries are going to make the same declaration as Sweden now have done.

“When I come into the house with my shoes still on, she asks, ‘Do you have any idea how many bacteria you pick up just walking on the road?’”

This is not a "western" thing, too me this is a generalization from the writer. All Countries of Scandinavia takes there shoes of and a big part of northern Europe also does it.

Posted in: Don’t own a TV? NHK doesn’t care, but still wants your money See in context

Perhaps i am a bit weird, but I think this is not that uncalled for. We have had this for many years in Sweden, you need to pay the fee (~300USD a year) too SVT (Swedish Television) if you have a TV, Computer, a phone or a tablet with internet access (or the possibility to get internet access), a DVD/BD-player with a HDD.

Posted in: Court ruling orders anyone with a TV-equipped device to pay NHK’s public broadcasting license fee See in context

This is kind of funny, we have had this discussion in Sweden for a couple of months. After the 1 of January this year anyone with a device that have the abilitiy to recive TV-signlas has to pay a TV fee to SVT (Swedish Television), before that it was only those with an actual TV that had to pay. The fee is around 350USD a year so its not that big but still who wants to pay for something they don´t use?

And over here if you buy any product that can recive a TV-signal the store have to report it by law. So if you buy, for expemle a computer or a mobile phone you will get a bill in your mailbox.

Posted in: With no cash for Windows upgrades, local gov't to disconnect some PCs from Net and tape up ethernet ports See in context

I have been in this situation too. I work for a Swedish government and we recently upgraded around 30.000 computers from Windows XP to Windows 7. The hard part were not the cost it was to plan a effective uprade to Windows 7 and have the users understanding why it was made. Some here have talked about linux/unix dist´s but i think many companies and governments do not see Linux as an alternative cause it will probably mean a lot more costs in training there staff for a new OS that they probably don´t have on there home computer. And by now almost everyone have Windows 7 or att least Vista so the need for staff training aint that high.

This problem don´t only exist in Japan its a problem for a lot of companies/governments all over the world.

You are totally wrong, recent studies done by SCB concludes that the support for the royal family is rising and the support for Crown Princess Victoria is higher then the King and Queen ever have had.

@davestrousers, you are a joke, did you even see the game? United played exceptionally for 55min then the red card ruined the evening for them. Real hade NOTHING for 55min. They even needed the ref to win. If that was ordinary EPL game it would have been perhaps at most a yellow card. And City and Chelase have better squads? bullshit all players in United are world class, there are few teams that can outmaneuver Readl Madrid for 55min.

Posted in: Record 259 nominees for 2013 Nobel Peace Prize See in context

Geir Lundestad is hhe Director of Norwegian Nobel Institute. There is nothing called "Nobel Institue". The Norwegian Nobel Institute does only decide who will get the peace prize. And as a Swede I am ashamed of how they choose candidates. its time to cancel the peace prize, or transfer it to the Nobel Foundation.
