QUOTE (FishTank)
This is a story about four people: Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it.

Everybody was sure Somebody would do it.

Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.

Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job.

Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it.

It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when actually Nobody asked Anybody.

Reminds me of my escapade with the radiologist, after an x-ray on a damaged knee (long story),asked, any problem? Yes you knee requires a new whatever! How long will that last +- 10 years.

Not an operation, hospital recuperation type, didn't go through with it...That was 11 years ago!!!

*acupressure and acupuncture has been sufficient*


Glad it is working out for you. Much better than surgery.

QUOTE (VikingHumpingWitch)
My only complaint with the otherwise excellent Swedish healthcare I've had is a rather cavalier attitude about giving test results. I went about a year ago for a blood test for cancer and was told that I'd hear within 2 weeks if there was a problem. It would have been nice to hear for sure that there wasn't rather than just hope it's all fine and the results weren't lost in the post.


That is apalling.

I am very much hoping all turned out well in the end though.

Thanks for the reassurance:)

Hospitals get me edgy. Not so edgy that a good stark öl can't help me through it though.

Hi all.

Anyone ever had any x-rays done in hospital here in Sweden? Is it normal to get results there and then or are the pictures sent back to the doctor who referred you? The attitude of the radiologists (telling me to wait afterwards then showing up and telling me to see my doctor) and a comment by a friend about his x-ray results has resulted in me worrying a bit :shock:

Kang has now emailed Dakyras, also a friend (whom I actually know in real life, got any of those, Kang?) complaining that I "trolled" her "phorum".


Untrue.

I received no emails from Kang at all. I initiated contact with her on Gmail. Let's straighten that right out.

Secondly she was not complaining about you 'Cheapdate' she was talking about how someone has been sending really quite horrific things to her. I have seen some copies of those things now and they are sick. Now I personally don't think it is who she believes it to be and I have always said that BUT someone is doing it and has to stop.

QUOTE (Miss Kitten)
Very crisp indeed, Daky.

And I apologize for gossiping. I wasn't being entirely facetious in my earlier post when I said it was underhanded and rude. It is, and I'm sorry. It wasn't my intention to stir anything up.

But I did feel slighted when Andy shut down the forum without saying a word. He and I ran that forum together and (at least I thought) made the decisions regarding it together. After his dismissive "goodbye" email, he made no effort to contact me ever again so I figured he no longer wanted to be my friend. Fair enough.

On this I shall say no more. Dakyras, you're right. The past is the past and is well and truly dead.


I apologise myself for getting so wound up about this but it is hard not to sometimes. The sooner this whole thing is dead and buried the better for all involved, you and I included!

Anyhow... Back to that crispy weather. I am a little jealous of all of you people further north than Småland. I want snow dammit!!!

Fortunately for me we shall be leaving this neck of the woods next spring and aiming for pastures much further north. 1 yr from now I shall be wallowing in snow. Woohoo smile.gif

An interesting question Sunworld smile.gif I myself am quite real I assure you.

As to the funny direction this thread took, that is easily explained... Every time some retard brings up the subject of LF the thread descends into a soup of crap. You would think the solution would be mind bogglingly obvious but sadly it isn't. I shall try and spell it out for those concerned:

It is very, very, very old history and even when it was new it was still tiresome. There is absolutely no reason for anyone to waste another second of their lives on this subject. Don't post about it.

So, in conclusion, would those people who are tempted to drag this up just not bother? Frankly you would be sparing us all and at the same time you would not be demeaning yourselves by regurgitating gossip that you really know F all about.

Nice weather we are having ain't it? Very crisp.

Seriously guys... come on. After all this time we still have the same old "he had bad teeth" routine? Bit shallow huh? Mind you, it is an improvement on the newly respawned gossip about Playstation selling and extra-marital affairs. Were any of you there when this console was sold? You know it happened? Or maybe one of you was lurking under the bed during the supposed 'affair'?

People seem awfully mouthy about things they actually know jack shit about. The ones that do know anything about the whole business seem to be those not tongue wagging. Maybe regardless of their feelings on the issue they have, errrr, moved on. :roll:

Didn't TL write (in early sping) that the goverment was looking into the ID card debacle and were expected to report back in the beginning of January 2008?

My personal problem is that SEB will not issue me with an ID card until I have a PUT. I am entitled to a PUT and would have one except for the fact that Migrationsverket are pissing around with my application.. I sent the bloody thing in at the very beginning of August and have STILL not heard anything. I rang them and was pretty much told it was buried at the bottom of a large pile of middle eastern applications and would be dealt with over the next few months... Funnily enough it took the same office only 3 weeks to do it last year. Odd huh? :x

Also I hate having to carry my passport with me whenever I plan to go to systemet. There is a woman called Doris in systemet who takes great delight on insisting to see my ID every single time. I know she does it on purpose because the same Englishman repeatedly pointing out in bad Swedish that he is in fact 29 must be the teensiest bit memorable.

I'm moving in mid-December to an unfurnished apartment.

I'm only staying for one year, so I need cheap basics (bed, table, chairs, pots & pans etc) .

I'm going to be quite close to Ikea in HisingsBacka.

Is that the best place for cheap stuff?

Do Ikea deliver in Sweden?

Thanks!


Yes they do deliver and barring a secondhand furniture shop they are probably going to be your cheapest option.

Hope you get sorted.

Every day thousands of Aliens are passing by our planet. But they don't want to talk to us. The reason is that in their tourist brochures is written following text:
"If you are close to the Earth or if you suddenly get a problem with your stomach or your bladder and you must relieve yourself, please avoid human beings. They are one of the worst creatures in the Universe.
They like people in power and despise the weak. They hate and kill each other for oil and other minerals. They are envious and jealous and they like material things.
And the worst of all they gave the Nobel Prize to Al Gore!"


This is actually BNW's least racist post. At least he is hating all of mankind equally this time instead of the people paying his upkeep.

There are many countries in the world with skilful writers like China, Hungary, Russia, Kenya, Iran, Spain, Brazil, India, Japan, Check Republic, Algeria and hundreds of others where writers do not care about money but are a living part of society but as long as the West behaves like colonial power they will never get a chance.

It is only your CULTURE which is valuable it only your PAINTING, and your SCULPTURE which is important, it is only Your MUSIC which is popular!
But it is not you which are ahead. You are lying yourself and do not want to see the truth just like in the past, the colonial powers treated indigenous people like idiots.

It is a tragedy to be blind, but the worst is to be blind with the perfect eyes.

And now idiots lets go back to the burgers, Britney Spears, and English working class!

All you ever do is come out with hateful nonsense. Have you ever just taken part in a thread without spewing bile? You sit comfortably on a state pension, whilst still young, and bite the f*cking hand that feeds you!

I hope TL's moderators get their fingers out of their asses's and come up with a way to ban you permanantly.
