Not all of us, there's a bunch of SJWs here. Found this the other day
>Statoil fires over 5000 of its employess

weebl lied to me too, the cunt
Although Svalbard isn't completely autonomous, it still belongs on the list. If nothing else, to shove Sweden one spot further down.
Heck, add the Bouvet island and Queen Mauds land too. Above Sweden, if that wasn't obvious.
He is huge. He single handedly made chess a "sport" and is a source of huge national pride.
Probably the greatest "athlete" in recent norwegian history. He is something else than cross country.
Minnesotans are like your close third cousin. You love the fact that they decent from your homeland, cherish that they cultivate Norwegian culture, and find it flattering that they want to keep in touch. At the same time you realize that they are now Americans and not Norwegians, but Minnesota is pretty much Norway's favourite state.
eerrr.. It might be a grass is greener on the other side kind of thing, but I find south east Asia to have the highest concentration of qtpie. And I am making that claim without ever setting foot there.
Russians don't give a shit about Norway. They claim several pieces of territory on the Norwegian continental plate and has heavily militaized the artic.
If Norway and Russia went to war, we would get demolished, hard, and that's our biggest issue. The russians has shown little hospitality, and that bothers us, especially since we share borders. Other than that, I think the general consensus is that Russian people in general are pretty cool, but Vladmir Putin has set up dangerous policies for our country.
Thank god for NATO is all I have to say.
Hell in Trøndelag, or was that just you swearing?
Norwegian beauty is not a lie, it is honestly true. Same with Sweden and Denmark, we have women that are heavily slutified, excessively dressed, and the "blonde, stronk indapendant" is very true. Oslo is like a fashion show. In contrast, some women that reject this fashion really go overboard. It seems like it's either fashion model or goth.
No idea how good it is, but it's made in Italy, for Italian weather, so I doubt most of them are made for the arctic conditions they are made to look like they belong in.
Actually, I remember reading about Napapijri as a teen sometimes in the nineties, it got local attention due to the flag, and reading that it was "an ethnic and exotic product" to Italians. Kinda floored me, it was the first time I felt like I'd seen some of our culture from the outside.

Fuck off, being self centered is a Norwegian trait.
You need to honor that. Norwegian's are cold on the outside, but very very warm on the inside. We value intellect, hospitality, knowledge, the ability to say and do what you mean, and drink a ton of beer. Alcohol is the remedy for everything.
It's like, American + Minnesotan = Instantly popular. One of the biggest TV shows is called "Everything for Norway" and is about Americans with Norwegian ancestry exploring our culture, and has really made Americans popular. Be proud of your Norwegian roots, and any Norwegian will love you.
Are you from Oslo? Also, have you travelled and explored Europe, Asia & America? I live in Hungary and see substantially less attractive women here and anywhere else. Scandinavians are truly more beautiful, but you're right, there are many average women in Norway as well, but blonde, blue eyed, tall and high cheek bones are some of the most universal traits of beauty, and you won't find an excess of that anywhere else than Scandinavia.
Russ was crazy. I fucked 4 women consistently then, and you feel like you have total authority. Even the police is like, "whatever, they're Russ, let them have a great time". It's the party of your life, not joking. Doing anything but exploiting that fully is just wrong.
I'm very proud of my roots and so is my wife. Both of our son's have norse names and want to go to Norway to meet my cousins and see sverd I fjell at harfsfjord. I know the show your talking about I found out about the application for it after they stopped taking them or I would have jumped on it.
Rich kid Oslo boy. Holmenkollen. Went all around the country with my "Russe bus". Never experienced the same amount of friendship, love, drugs, women and partying every since. I feel bad for other countries that don't have it.
After graduation, people celebrate and drink for a month - the costumes are probably to give ourselves an extra excuse, so our will to drink and celebrate are overcome by out introvertness.
To combat this evil alcohol consumption, exams were pushed forwards a month, but that didn't help, so now we drink ourselves to a stupor for a month continously, while at the same time taking exams.
That's the official story anyway. Personally, I'm a stick in the mud, so I openly demonstrated against the peer pressure and didn't taste a drop of alcohol during may, I'm not even teetotal, just so stubborn and principled I bore myself to tears sometimes.
I'm not sure I know what you think I lost, but if you think you're calling me out for not being one of the cool kids with a silver spoon in my ass and a scared little girl who are afraid to say no, then I took a different path looong before the russ period, and I'm still happy for it. It just does not appeal to me.
