The Local _ Life in Sweden _ What is the sound at 3pm Monday?

Posted by: dack 5.Mar.2012, 03:11 PM

I often hear a loud sound at around 3pm, today i here it again, seems like a hooter or alarm, repeated several times. I think many people can hear it, because it sounds really loud, do you know what is that?

You joined back in 2009 and haven't heard it before now? Doesn't the sound reach Dalarna unless the wind blows in the right direction??

If you hear the siren on any other day than the first Monday in the month, make the following procedure:

1. Carefully bend forward.
2. Stick your head between your legs
3. wait for the big bang
4. Kiss your ass goodbye biggrin.gif

That's what most people think it is, but in fact, it announces a predicted shortage of self-raising flour. laugh.gif

LOL!!!

Or the lack of decent fish and chips, plus the lament on how diffcult the dish is to make with two thermometres.

The string is as long as the size of the crack, from top to bottom.

Crikey, I need to get some of that, but not sure where I can find it here, or what the name is...

Is there a different sound for ordinary flour?
