    Sweden? OK, I think we need a picture now.

    What country beside Sweden sells oil? Finland?

    Well, he manufactured them anyway.

    Yeah, we speak swedish, not norweighian
    I can't make heads or tails out of that stupid language. And people say it's so similar, plus that they tend to bring in some people to speak norweighian instead of swedish :|
    Please... just speak swedish or english >_<

    Well, I may be biased since English is my native language, but in the global economy English is the language of business and government. Failure to speak it at least as a secondary language stter dig och ditt fretag en allvarlig nackdel.

    Of course, it's just that people think they can substitute swedish with norweighian at times. I don't understand a word of it... Or rather, I understand only half.

    It's the same with derivatives of Latin. They all sound similar and have similar syntax, but that doesn't mean a Frenchman can speak Italian or a Spaniard can speak Portuguese. I guess a better example would be German and English. Half the words are pronounced the same (if you speak Germanic English that is).

    Well, on the other hand, Danes and Norwegians understand eachother perfectly, while none of us understand even a little bit of swedish, ever crossed your mind that Swedish is the black sheep of the bunch?

    Income tax here is 49% for low-income group, and goes up to 62% for the wealthiest. Also, an even higher millionaire tax has been proposed in the parliament, for everyone with more than a million in yearly wages.

    So, Denmark has the highest tax pressure of any country, yet we have one of the highest standards of living in the world, coincidence?

    Yo, Denmark is great that way. When you cross the border from Germany, the traffic changes from being (surprise) brand new big shiny "road sedans" to, like, rusted old VW's and such. My uncle had a BMW 5 series more than a decade old, all dinged up and with some paint peeling, and people felt it was an extravagant ride.

    However, having a brand new big shiny road sedan is probably not a significant indicator for "quality of life" measurements, whereas minimum wage is, which I think it is (the equivalent of) $10-15 hour in Denmark? Spreading the wealth around evidently does not cause the sky to fall.

    I heard recently they are further restricting traffic in Copenhagen, like closing one of the bridges into downtown to car traffic -- just bikes and pedestrians! Yay! I can't wait to go back sometime.

    You win some, you lose some. Shiny cars really doesn't matter much IMHO. The VAT on a normal 4 door car is 180% here.

    The minimum wage for anyone above 18 is 98DKK i believe, which is 18.79 US dollars at the moment.

    They closed Nrrebro main street for ordinary traffic, it is a "bus/bike only" street now.

    Actually, it's a "piem", whether or not Niels Bohr came up with it, i don't know.

    Wow. A lot of unions in the US would be thrilled with that. Nuff said!
