Issue : People : förlorat

Sweden is a country in Northern Europe. It's bordered by Norway and Finland; it's connected to Denmark by a bridge tunnel. Sweden still has a king, Sweden social system is the envy of the world, and all the people there are said to be staggeringly beautiful. Sweden sounds like fairy tale town in real life.

The Swedish word for lost is "förlorat."

It would not be hard to get lost in Sweden, 85% of the population lives in urban areas. I imagine the Swedish countryside resembling lush vistas not unlike that old Microsoft Windows default wallpaper. It would roll on for days and days, a dirt path cut through to the next town. You could wander in like an adventurer from an old sword and dragon story, or an RPG. There is an Inn, a general shop, a blacksmith. The NPC's chat you up, point you in the right direction. That kind of stuff.

Sweden sounds great on paper but I don't think I could live there. It's a little too perfect in my mind. I think of this angry, loud, and chaotic turd factory we call the USA and my heart skips a beat.  I'm in love with an abusive, neglectful, obnoxious, brilliant, asshole. We can't fucking stand each other, not one bit, but the music we make sounds all the sweeter for it. But then again, I've never been a sword and sorcery guy, I'm into guns, star-ships, and the electoral college. To each their own.

A group of Swedish gaming folks are a lot richer today. That's for sure. Not that they care, they traded off more than they gained. They just don't know it yet. Out there in those lush vistas they nurtured something they no longer felt responsible controlling so they let it go to people who's job it is to control pets with thyroid problems. Just feed em and feed em and feed em, and they grow until they pop.

What does this mean for the free lands and the kids and the stuff they built? Who cares. The real story is that the King has abdicated, and parliament is guiding the transition. Good luck with that. He really sold it though... he just... Sold it. I know it's not right to expect things of people, I just... I'm legit surprised. Maybe he beat the game?

The Swedish word for surprised is "överraskad."

I hope information doesn't for a second think I wouldn't do the same shit. for two billion I would eat my own taint with no hot sauce. Also maybe now you have more time to run that lame solly in TF2 Notch. Also I was never gonna play Destiny, far be it from me to deride your chosen god. AAA is not what it used to be. Also JERBZ.
