Skip to comments.USA and even "rich" Norway display a ridiculous standard of living.

Why do Americans drive around in Fred Flintstone vehicles and what's the underlying problem behind the vast majority of Brits buying Fords and Vauxhalls year after year? Why does your tap water taste like sh*t and why don't Italians tear down buildings that no longer are in use?
What's the idea of building a house out of cardboard?
Denmark has the highest wages on Earth. Norway can compete. OK. But why is it that every time I visit our dear western neighbors I feel sorry for people driving wrecks instead of Volvo V70s?
Is the V70 a far too sophisticated vehicle for your marijuana-inflicted brains?
Get a grip.
You have a nation to run.
Please visit Sweden once in your lifetime and study how civilized people live and work.
In case you're healthy and normally furnished in the brain department there's no reason why you should not drive a nice Volvo/BMW/M-B/Audi/SAAB/Cadillac and own a nice home.
Feel free to criticise me.
Yeah, but at least we don’t have crappy IKEA Furniture. ;)
You’ve really stirred a hornets nest, here.
Mine own winter houses in Florida.
I'd say they have your friends beat, sport.
“Drunk again, I see...”
This time it’s “for real”..
(But I admit to having been drunk while posting on other occasions)
Are you drunk? Your post smelt of elderberries.
Volvos are only modestly upscale and have poor resale value here. You’re taxed into oblivion and likely live in an 800 square feet or less hovel.
Needs a special zot to rid the demons.
All of that applies to me as well. What doesn't apply to me is your snotty, superior braggadocio.
“Youve really stirred a hornets nest, here.”
No, no-KICKED a hornet’s nest...
(y’know, Stieg Larsson and all...)
If the average American family each purchased two of these on 5 year notes they would be spending 25% of their income on them. This is, of course, before fuel, maintenance, insurance and government fees. But hey, let's all get a couple.
Sweden does have one thing going for them. The women are BEAUTIFUL.
Have another Tuborg, Sven.
That’s one of the strangest posts I’ve ever seen.
I have been to Sweden-——it’s great,but I still love the USA.
Here in Texas I have lots of friends who own several houses. Oh, did I mention a lot of them own ranches that encompass thousands of acres? And...we have oil.
How many of your friends own oil wells?
By all means, stay there!
Winter is long in Sweden. Hang in there dude; only 3 and a half more months until spring.
Flag on the play.
Ten yards and loss of down.
I isn't drunk right now.
Well yeah. I is.
