Skip to comments.Sweden: where only 3% of the population uses cash
Posted on 04/08/2013 1:44:05 PM PDT by WesternCulture
Sweden really is annoying.
We've made both Germany and Russia look like fools on battle fields.
We haven't experienced war for two centuries by now, but we're prepared for the next one.
We once were poor, but today, we enjoy a standard of living that clearly is better than that of the average American or any other country on Earth for that sake.
Few Americans could afford a car like the Volvo V70 (best selling car in Sweden) and only a small percentage of the American population own second homes (very common in Sweden).
Furthermore, my Sweden is more technologically advanced in all areas of society compared to nations who wish to compete with us.
This clip could give you some sort of idea of what I'm on about.
We don’t need cash:
I saw a 17 yearold female facebook/myface/twitter celephone addict at the convenience store the other day using a debit card for a 79cent bag of chips.
Why is their suicide rate so high?
And what happens if you cannot use your “cashless” card to buy food, or shelter?
Who gets to look at what we buy?
What if what we buy is deemed ‘inappropriate’?
What if the banks turn off the credit to one entire group of undesirables?
It’s cloudy, rainy and snowy for most of the year.
And summer gives you mosquitoes the size of chihuahuas.

“I saw a 17 yearold female facebook/myface/twitter celephone addict at the convenience store the other day using a debit card for a 79cent bag of chips.
- Totally agree.
I see these kind of things all day long. I can’t do nothing. I’ll simply have to accept them.
too bad Mexico is so far away- maybe you could send some ships for them and share your superior culture since we inferior US is struggling so mightily.
Or maybe just imagine Norway and Finland as being tan and poor - just more to share the wealth eh
there are many who might appreciate migrating to the rape capital of Europe, the muslims seem to enjoy some aspects of that fine culture
Its also a country where the government’s answer to the wave of rapes by Muslim immigrants is to tell Swedish women to dress less provocatively.
“Its also a country where the governments answer to the wave of rapes by Muslim immigrants is to tell Swedish women to dress less provocatively.”
Sorry, but to tolerate Muzzies is to mark the country as doomed.
As in “finished”.
Enjoy it while you can...and I do believe there aren’t many Muzzie-repellers (otherwise known as weapons) there, are there?
Tests confirm our dirty money fears
The dirtiest currency was the Denmark krone which has 40,226 bacteria followed by Sweden's krona with 39,600.
In fact, the suicide rate isn’t that very high in Scandinavia.
Compared to a lot of other nations, my home country displays a rather moderate rate in this field.
Nothing against Volvos, but a small station wagon that’s only a few grand more than the average car sold in America is proof of cultural superiority? That Swede needs to get out more! Or be kicked out by the new Muslims masters of his superior culture.

- For five months of the year, the weather is like that.
But during summer, the sun almost never sets and the World’s most beautiful females wear nothing but bikinis.
Guess you’ve never been to Scandinavia..
I think it’s nice that you’re positive about your home country. I can say lots of nice things about North Carolina, too, if anyone is interested. For example, we have very interesting snakes and other temperate-zone biodiversity.
(No, I’m not an environmentalist crazy - my kids do science competitions.)
I lived there for two years.
The summer is nice, no doubt about that. And the women, of course, are utterly beautiful.
I lived in Sundbyberg. Not a bad place at all, actually, and I lost my heart to one of the aforementioned utterly beautiful women - being as it was love at first sight, of course I had to stay. Sadly, long-term, it didn’t work out.
But I still loved it there, and if given the opportunity, I’d move back in a heartbeat.
“Why is (Sweden’s) suicide rate so high?”
Try their meatballs and then imagine living on them. I’d want to kill myself, too.
I don’t know about their V70 (which is just an 850 wagon, really) but our XC90 is pretty awesome. But then after we left California the original engine died and it was replaced with a Ford 390ci and a C6 transmission. *Much* nicer now with 400+hp.
The V70 is an S60 wagon. The 850 was years ago. The XC90 used to be available with a nice V8 of its own. Not very reliable, but nice American-style power!
