I married a Swede.
I visit Scandinavia often.

I've found their people to be friendly, warm, and welcoming.

Except for Norway...
But no one likes Norway.


Also, America has a ton of oil. Both in the ground and stockpiled. Coal too.
All the oil wells in the Middle East could dry up, and we'd be fine. Logistically the transition might be rough, but in the long run it wouldn't be much more than a mild hiccup in our supply.

You know who WOULD be ******? I mean proper ******?
Most of Europe.
The same Europe that belongs to the UN.
The same UN that uses the US as its military muscle.

Believing that any country goes to war over nothing more than oil is ridiculous. But if you are going to subscribe to that opinion, you might want to look at which countries actually NEED foreign oil, and which countries just use it out of convenience.

Britain is pretty much the same, maybe not for Oil, but thanks to good old maggie thatcher we have huge ass stockpile of coal meant as back ups for power stations in times of absolute desperation.



Our problem is gas.

Margaret Thatcher was a bad ass. Ugly, but a bad ass.

She wasn't as bad as people made out, I was sad for her passing. Not in mourning but a little empathy for those who cared enough. Maggie Thatcher was a woman with a huge vision of a long term Britain, but unfortunately her vision was not continued and ended up being a short term mess.

Wow Scandinavians really love the smell of their own farts don't they? Bashing America all the time is just getting old... it isn't funny and doesn't deserve front page. Americans do get annoyed nut are they butt hurt? I'd say not as they make perfectly valid points. If people were ripping on England or Britain all the time I'd get pretty tired of it pretty quickly. So just CUT THAT **** OUT!

Oh, you're talking about how people still talk trash about the french because they surrender a bit too quickly? Or how the English drink tea all the time and have silly curse words? You mean how people talk trash about Finland for them never being heard? You mean about Romania because they're all thieves? You mean how people insinuates Greece have no money? You mean how people talk trash about Canadians because they're too ******* nice and only make riots when they lose a hockey game?

> Implying everybody aren't talking **** about everybody.
> Implying Anyone is making valid points ever in "my country is better then your country" arguments.

It's a joke, sit the **** down.

Thing is there's a difference between stereotypes and just slating a country saying they are evil warmongering bastards... and it isn't a joke. Jokes have a punchline and are funny, just insulting something isn't a joke.

No you TOOK IT as an insult. That's like if a man said "do you know why I allow my woman to handle the grill? Because she can handle multiple sausages! (manly laughter)"

If another man heard it, it would be a joke.
If a feminist woman heard it, she would most likely find it insulting.

The joke is that America have had some interesting diplomacy giving missions in some interesting locations, some of the things may be connected? OP tied the knots together and created a "funny" view on how things could be.

And now that you're in the subject, you're implying that America isn't a warmongering nation. Yet since 1776 you guys have only have a total of 21 years of peace. You may consider that an insult, but then again do you dislike the Spartans for it? God of war would be doll if it was about furry creatures collecting flowers woulden't it.

I just think you're being needlessly silly over the subject.

Actually, it was America who learned us Norwegians to drill for oil and thaught us everything we know about it ! they helped alot for Norway to become a welfare state. if not for America Norway wouldn´t be anything today. Also Norway offered 40% of the oil Income in trade for the car company Volvo. they refused. :)

Is it just me or are more northern Countries (Canada, I guess Alaska compared to the rest of the states, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Greenland, Iceland, and even parts of Russia) A lot better well off than other countries with which we are similar?

Anyone willing to explain that to me? I'm honestly curious.

Sorry if I'm a little hard to understand, picture related.
