    The United States is not the only Western “civilized” nation suffering from an acute case of PC delusion. Take Sweden for example. Awhile back, a 57-year-old Swedish woman and her 22-year-old son were reportedly stabbed and killed (one actually beheaded) by an Eritrean Muslim asylum seeker in the nation’s largest branch of IKEA. Security camera footage from the brutal attack reportedly showed the 35-year-old man grabbing two knives from the kitchenware section just before two shoppers are attacked, according to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet. The Express reports the suspect had met with migration officials just hours before the attack, and was...

    Psychologists have long said that men tend to be better than women at spatial tasks, like mentally picturing and manipulating shapes. Hundreds of studies spanning several decades have shown that on average, men score higher on tests asking them to rotate objects in their heads. This is one of the few persistent and significant differences scientists have discovered between the brains of men and women. The pattern also aligns, perhaps suspiciously, with stereotypes about men being better at reading maps or parking -- or putting together flat-pack furniture. That last cliche might actually be true. Researchers at the University of...

    Two people were killed at an IKEA in Sweden by an assailant.  Due to Sweden's abysmally weak knife control laws, the killer was able to murder both of them with an unregistered blade. A man and a woman were killed and a third injured in a knife attack at an IKEA store in the Swedish city of Vasteras on Monday and two suspects were arrested, police said. While Sweden has strict gun control laws, it has no knife control legislation.  Anyone can go into a home goods store and buy a knife.  A knife buyer doesn't have to undergo...

    Swedish furniture store IKEA’s tongue-in-cheek video introducing its 2015 Ikea catalogue has gone viral with more than 6.4 million views. Clearly spoofing Apple ads, the two-and-a-half minute video shot against a white backdrop with inspirational music playing shows IKEA’s “chief design guru” Jorgen Eghammer earnestly extolling the virtues of the catalogue. “Once in a while, something comes along that changes the way we live, a device so simple and intuitive, using it feels almost familiar,” he says, mimicking Apple’s star product designer, Jonathan Ive. “Introducing the 2015 Ikea catalogue. It’s not a digital book or an e-book. It’s a book...

    A furniture store in Takoma Park, Maryland that calls itself a “Weapons Free Environment” took its policy a bit too far on Independence Day. That’s when a loss prevention officer at IKEA approached Alan Goldberg, who carried a visible, holstered firearm into the store, telling him he would have to leave the premises or place the weapon in his vehicle, according to NBC Washington. The request caught Goldberg off guard: he is Takoma Park’s chief of police, and he was in uniform during his visit.
