That looks like expert travel writing to me. And apparently I should know...


Congratulations even though I am wile annoyed not to have been include myself.


I totally agree with your assessment on salty licorice. At the Candy Baron in Santa Monica (where you can buy a single, individually-wrapped circus peanut) they sell "double salted licorice". It's beyond the beyond of nasty.


Poo? Really? I need this for an essay.


Well to be more technical - biofuel from sewage. In a town in southern Sweden they make energy from the byproducts of the local abattoir. Good luck with the essay.

buses that run on poo? are you kidding me what will those crazy Swedish basterds think of next lol


Wow Poop I mean CA CA Well at least i needed this for a project this is some good info...


I needed all of these for a project im doing and now I finally figured out why my brother is so tall!!! ;)
(because of fact 2)


You shouldn't believe EVERYTHING you read on the internet!! For accurate information have a look at this link http://www.cabe.org.uk/default.aspx?contentitemid=1318


poo thats weird i need this for a social studies report


Or... Liquorice is "lakrits" in swedish and alt liqourice is delicios and so much better than the sweet one. And we don't nod when we say no, that's an albanian thing. Over and out.


number 6 isn't true. Where have you heard that? O.o


No. 6 is based on an extensive study of Swedish people carried out by myself during my one and only 24 hour visit to Sweden....as I've already said, don't trust everything you read on the Internet!!


i need to find this for a report and none of this sounds logical.!! peoplee.!! pooo.?! are you seriouss.!


Yes that one is serious - biofuel is made from sewage in parts of Sweden. In Linkoping in southern Sweden, the town buses run on fuel made from animal carcasses....strange but true. Having said that I strongly suggest if you are using this for a report you need to do more research. There's a link in one of the comments above which leads to a more reliable source of information than you're likely to find in random blogs.


well i want to know how the swedish ladies treat a stranger from africa?are they very romantic?i need to know....


lol thats amazing!!!!

but what about swedish woman?

2015 The List Of Stuff

  • 2 - 6. Kenwood Chef
    I have wanted one of these for at least 20 years. I bought a second hand one which died after a few weeks. This was in a sale and was less than half price. I now have the problem of getting rid of the second hand one. I am counting this as five objects; bowl, mixer and attachments; spatula; spanner; recipe book; and blender.
  • 1. Pot of Chrysanthemums
    I thought these were better value than a bunch of flowers. They cost £3.50.

A Thousand Things

  • 541 - Small Wooden Elephant Puzzle
    I bought this at a market that I'd made some effort to go to and felt I had to buy something. There is a lesson in this. Charity shop.
  • 540 - Teatowel
    Unused and unwanted. Charity shop.
  • 539 - small coffee cup
    The saucer was smashed last weekend. Charity shop.
  • 538 - Cup and Saucer
    This cup and saucer probably dates from the 1940s. It has the lyrics "they'll always be an England" printed on it. I bought it 20 years ago in the mistaken belief it would be worth money some day. Charity shop.
  • 537 - Poetry Book
    Sort of a duplicate. Donated to the telephone box library.
  • 535 - 536 Two Pairs of Glasses
    I donated these to a charity. Lots of opticians participate so if you have any old glasses you can hand them in and help people in other parts of the world get help to see better. (If vintage the glasses are sold in this country or the metal and glass is recycled and sold. The money from this is what funds programmes abroad.)
  • 534 - Small sponge
    Grotty. Bin.
  • 533 Waterproof overtrousers
    Sold on eBay. These were surplus to requirements and a little on the small size. £6.99 is what I got for them.
  • 532 - Tupperware Grater
    Sold for pence on eBay and now on its way to Norway. I miscalculated the postage so made something to make it worth my while.
  • 526 - 531 6 vintage glasses from the 1970s
    Someone will be very happy when they find these in the charity shop just as I was when I originally bought them.
