    > some people will have prejudices about me.

    No one was prejudiced against you, jackhole. We're sure judging you now, but we weren't before. Is your skin actually thin enough to see through, or does it have a bit of color to it?

    > It's not about whether the specific examples that I stated are exaclty true or not, it's about that there are examples, and I think you know that

    "I'm right. I don't know why and I can't even come up with a comparable analogy that makes any minute amount of sense or connects to it in any way, but I'm right, dammit!"

    > My point was that I did not bash America.

    Product X from Sweden sucks. I've never said anything negative about it.

    hahaha, ok ok ok........you're right Govt. Ok, so my purpose here was to provoke and then to withdraw, I guess.

    Well, after all this I think I need a ::mod edit:: more clever line than the previous ::/edit::

    OK, OK, you're right... I was going to say something about how Swedish humor can't be funny because I've never seen Kimi Raikonen smile. Oh wait... he's from Finland. Well they're practically the same, right Zewu!?

    Heh heh... that'll make him mad...

    I saw a mention of Volkswagon's "American Van" a few posts back; in the United States, Volkswagon has some sort of monstrosity called the "Euro-Van." They're probably the same thing (those corporate naming people, sully and tan their hides!).

    I'd like to mention that, as I read it, I did not perceive of this joke as being directed against the intelligence of the Swedish people but instead as a joke culled from the "stupid warning labels" category. If someone doesn't like the way things are done (or as they suppose things must be done) in the United States, there's no reason to lash out against the culture and people in general when calm, constructive criticism is so much more effective.

    ... then I think we're done here.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
