I love my Swedes, especially when they get crazy. I'm not so sure about launching fireworks rockets under the ice of a frozen lake. That's just dumb. Fun, but dumb. Go home and leave the fish alone, Swedes. You are drunk.
You have to give it to those Swedes: Behind those chiseled marble faces with platinum blonde hair and cold steel blue eyes there's a great, almost British sense of humor that takes the piss out of everything.

Apparently, instead of calling some emergency service, they just filmed her with their cellphones. A sad sign of the times, I guess. So eventually she was like "wtf, screw you humans," went back…

Volvo has been first with many of the car safety inventions now in everyone's cars, so it's no surprise that they're spearheading an effort to have street legal self-driving cars in Sweden by 2017. Hopefully it will all work perfectly and soon we will all be able to enjoy them.

Villa Överby—by John Robert Nilsson Nilsson Arkitektkontor—is a perfect example of my favorite architectural style: the When You Have a Beautiful Landscape, Just Give Me Goddamn Huge Windows style. Very Farnsworthian or Mies van…
This is, sadly, the tombstone of a five year-old boy, located in a cemetery in Lund, Sweden. A boy who obviously loved his Pokémon so much it's become a big part of his memorial.
Sweden is now "okay" with public masturbation. On June 6, a 65-year-old man took off his shorts at a beach near Stockholm and began masturbating into the ocean. The man was charged with sexual assault, but was acquitted last week after a judge ruled he was not targeting a specific person.
