Now wait a sec. Genies wishes are rigged. Even if I did get 3 wishes, it's 3 suck ass wishes
User avatar #68 to #40 - rangerofthesea (08/15/2012) [-]
no genies are the original grammar nazis...you have to word your wishes right such as *i wish for a millon bucks* you would have to rephrase it to be *i wish for one million united states dollars in 100 dollar bill, 10,000 dollar stacks, neatly stacked in a suitcase where neither has no criminal origins or was taken from anyone else that could come after me and cause harm to me, my family, or anyone i cared for and placed in front of my on the ground.* and that would get you exactly what you wanted with little wiggle room for the genie to **** you....lol

Or I could just get a lawyer like Timmy did.

"neither has no criminal origins"
That's a double negative, so you're wishing that they both have criminal origins.
User avatar #167 to #163 - rangerofthesea (08/15/2012) [-]
yeah, small mistakes can be costly when wishing from a genie

I want to get Student Loans to help pay for school


But my parents make too much money
#227 to #222 - anon (08/15/2012) [-]
I, for better or worse, can relate to this

I'm Scandinavian and what is this "student debt" you're talking about?
#388 to #39 - anon (08/15/2012) [-]
we have student loans in Norway! after 5 years at a university you have around 250 000 Norwegian krone ( 42 000 USD) in student loans.

each year you get around 90 000 kroner in loans with the goverment. after you pass your exams 40% of this will be changed to scholarship.
#322 to #39 - anon (08/15/2012) [-]
My family is rich, what is this debt your talking about?
#321 to #39 - anon (08/15/2012) [-]
I'm Israeli and I share your pleasure in not understanding what a "student loan" is. Lets give a cheer for governments that care about your quality of life and education! Woo.
#57 to #39 - anon (08/15/2012) [-]
I'm Scandinavian too, but only by blood. If only my great grand parents had ******* stayed in Norway.
User avatar #118 to #57 - dalgaard (08/15/2012) [-]
Nope... No way. You would not want to be in Norway. Worlds most expensive country and I live in Denmark which probably is number 2.

1 beer costs about 30 (danish kroner) which is like 6 dollars. And that's in the supermarkets my friend. Not even cold. Try thinking about a case of beer or liquer. You'll feel broke by the thought.
User avatar #339 to #118 - radiserne (08/15/2012) [-]
Wtf dude, a danish beer costs about 6-12 kr, which is 1-2 dollars
User avatar #343 to #339 - dalgaard (08/15/2012) [-]
The subject is Norway. I'm talking about Norway's prices. Not Denmarks.
#346 to #343 - radiserne (08/15/2012) [-]
**radiserne rolled a random image posted in comment #250 at James Holmes ** Then why write danish kroners?
User avatar #353 to #346 - dalgaard (08/15/2012) [-]
That's why it's in the ''()'' I'm too lazy to find out what Norske kroners is so I said my own currency and compared it to dollars so others could understand.

#249 to #118 - anon (08/15/2012) [-]
Your intellect is weak.

What you give up for enormous taxation on everything is the ability to do everything.

If you would give up free health care, free schools and generally free money so that you can waste it on beer you need to rethink your priorities.

But then again, you're a funnyjunk regular so you might not be smart enough to understand what it means to think ahead.
#255 to #249 - anon (08/15/2012) [-]
How is his intellect weak? If he's a healthy person who rarely takes advantage of the free health care, and is already done school, he's simply losing money through taxation.

Enormous taxation takes away the incentive to be successful as an individual, since everything is handed to you by the government.

Simply thinking that the fact that you exist gives you the right to luxury a naive way of thinking.

"Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country" - John F. Kennedy
#361 to #255 - anon (08/15/2012) [-]
Bring forth the red thumbs!

I'm speaking as a Scandinavian that currently has great health, goes to college/uni for free, is living with his parents and sister.

I haven't gone to the doctor in more than 4 years (had the flu and needed some antibiotics prescribed), other from that I have great health. Only one of my parents work and he doesn't have a college degree. Despite the "huge" taxation still we have money to go on vacation almost every summer, buy unneeded items (Videogames, and other electronic devices), etc.

Even people with good health can suffer accidents. If you don't have insurance, do you think any insurance company is going to accept that you start paying AFTER you've suffered any kind of accident?.

People around here still want to be successful, they still have ambition, for example: Stefan Persson, worth (according to forbes) around 26 Billion USD occupying the 8th position in the Forbes list.

You want to know what my family is doing for my country? They are paying taxes so everyone has the same opportunities, and still, we feel as free as we could be.
#395 to #361 - anon (08/15/2012) [-]
First of all, I wonder whether your family works in a public sector, or private sector job.

Interesting how you bring up Stefan Persson as a person with ambition, considering he inherited his company after his father. The company H & M was formed before the high tax, before 1950.

As for people who suffer accidents, you don't need free health care for life threatening situations, or many other injuries in a country such as USA. Hospitals will still admit you. They may turn you down if it's non-life threatening and you don't have insurance, but its not common.

#470 to #395 - anon (08/16/2012) [-]
H&M started making serious money after the 70's, after the high tax.

My parent (singular) works in the public sector (which pays less than the private), as for life threatening situations you may still be admitted into any hospital but you still will have to pay a lot of money afterwards, that means for any average family to be in debt.

Other Companies have surged making and extraordinary amount of money in the last few years, like Mojang and Spotify.

Well, if he is supposed to follow Kennedys saying, taxation isn't an meaningless economical loss, but a support to your country and fellow man.
#379 to #337 - anon (08/15/2012) [-]
I'm not saying no taxation, I'm saying that enormous taxation is unnecessary.
User avatar #471 to #379 - taxation (08/18/2012) [-]
Well then it's a good thing I'm just regular sized, or you lot would've done away with me a while ago.

Where the **** do you buy beer?
6 danish kroner, not more
#408 to #118 - anon (08/15/2012) [-]
Dude, you know nothing. We earn 20 times more then you guys, yet the prices are only twice as high. It's all about GNP (Gross National Product). But hell, stay in Denmark. We can make twice as much as you, and buy it for the same low prices they have in Sweden or Denmark. We rock, you suck :) But enjoy your expensive stay in Denmark ;)
User avatar #469 to #408 - dalgaard (08/16/2012) [-]
I'm not saying it's too expensive for norwegians to live in Norway, that wouldnt make any sense. I'm just saying if you come from another country that would probably be one of the most expensive to have a vacation/live in. It's the same with Denmark, we also make more than other countries, it's just that our taxes is the highest, together with Sweden I think it is.
User avatar #136 to #118 - bjartur (08/15/2012) [-]
In the faroes it's much cheaper :3
User avatar #262 to #136 - dalgaard (08/15/2012) [-]
Well I'm pretty sure there is no ''Faroes'' in Denmark. So I would'nt know about that ^^
User avatar #329 to #262 - bjartur (08/15/2012) [-]
wtf do you learn in school ?
Faroe Islands is a state of province in the ocean, right next to iceland, and Denmark owns it, like greenland.
User avatar #335 to #329 - dalgaard (08/15/2012) [-]
I wasnt implying to the egyptian pharoes if that's what you think. I thought you meant a shop or something similar.

Maybe I havent heard the term ''faroe'' in english, had you ever considered that before saying that danish people dont learn anything in school?.
User avatar #333 to #329 - radiserne (08/15/2012) [-]
Denmark doesn't own the Faroe Islands, it's a constituent country
User avatar #458 to #57 - tholomewsense (08/15/2012) [-]
not if you're looking for education. most of the teacher sucks balls and are lazier than cats. if you have to move... good luck, 4000 students can't go to school this year in Oslo, no apartments or anywhere to live without paying ALOT of money, probably like 1 500-2000 dollars per month for a small apartment.

Sigh HTX and the other gymasiums are the equivalent of High school...

DK University is the same as (You guessed it) US University/College.
User avatar #190 to #28 - onceknownsober (08/15/2012) [-]
but on the other hand you still supported by the government (if you are within the age limit) when you go to an university in Denmark, therefore if you are wise and use your money well, you can avoid a student debt..

yeah, but your only friends are other welders and people who wish to take advantage of your position.

also trade school technically counts as college, if only for kids who majored in shop

i think you just accurately described my friends, never thought about them like that. and i went through 2 years of welding in high school, so once again, youre right.

i drive trucks too, but its only to put them in the shop. i build dump trucks and snow plows. the only part i dont like about welding is all the skin burns and cuts. but that an occupational hazard that i was willing to accept

Welder/pipefitter here. Welding is great for anyone who wants to get a cheap start on life and use that money to start into something else. Being A-ticket/4th year or whatever, provides a great income for anyone who is willing to work.
