Prejudice around the world

Look up what people in the world are known for, and hey, if you do not like what it is saying about your country - do not blame us for that, blame Google!

A small request from this Swedes:

What the heck means with the word Austerity????? They say that the Swedes are that, but we do not even know what the word means… And we can not find it in the dictionairy!

Could someone explain it to us please, so we know how we shall behave to be really Swedish….?

In the meantime we will drink our coffee and carve our Viking longboats!

    Sourness and harshness to the taste.
    Severity of manners or life; extreme rigor or strictness; harsh discipline.
    Plainness; freedom from adornment; severe simplicity.

    I just copied that off a dictionary website. It sounds bad. I always thought Swedish people were great BTW..

    Oh, my god, we had no idea of that, we thought that was the Finnish people.

    We must stop being humorous and non-strict at once!

    For gods sake, we must behave as true plain swedish citizens ;-)

    Aren’t Swedes also known for their saunas, and running out of them and jumping into the snow? That should take care of the rumors of austerity

    Actually, again, that is the Finnish people :-)

    The only rumor that I am aware of myself, is that swedish girls says to be very liberated. It is true that we are, but comparing to what? Everything is relative….
