Stickan... since you're from Sweden... I had a question.

Is your army (Swiss Army) a bunch of Navy Seal type special forces, sleep in the snowy mountains for months at a time with nothing but a canteen and a toothbrush? 'Cause I gotta say... those Swiss Army Knives have everything... Then again... why the hell have the cork screw? They take bottles of wine into the wilderness often?



Again, along with the swiss cheese question.... these are jokes yeah?

I don't know if the swiss cheese thing is a joke, but I was asking a legitimate question... I just asked it in a non-serious manner.

Think about it man... You have a Swiss Army knife... you have knives, a saw, a fish scaler, scissors, screwdrivers, nail file, a place to hook fishing line, toothpick, tweezers, cork screw etc.... that's some Navy SEAL/McGyver stuff right there... The right guy could go out into the woods with one of those and he'd have every tool he needed.

Okay, so the wine comment was a joke... I just didn't understand why they felt they had to put a corkscrew in there.

Well I would have let Stickan answer this but he ain't online so............ it's just you'd probably be better asking someone who comes from SWITZERLAND (home of swiss cheese, swiss army knives etc) rather than Sweden, an entirely different country altogether

But hey, we're a relatively small continent, with lots of little countries so I'll let you off

Oh my god man... I didn't even think about that. That's hilarious... when the guy asked about Swiss cheese, I just immediately thought "Swiss Army Knife!!!" Wow... that would make sense for why you asked if it was a joke...



-Edit-
By the way.. well deserved props for noticing that tiny little detail.

Thanks for being educated Rich.

Sweden is populated by swedes (beautiful people) and things that come out of Sweden is referred to as being swedish.
Sweden is a monarchy but the king has no political power what so ever and we probably have the highest taxes in the world.
Swedes´s flag is blue and yellow, not to be confused with Switzerlands red and white flag.
We also aren't making swiss knives, swiss watches or swiss cheese and no you don't have your newly stolen money in our SWEDISH bank accounts, you have them in Switzerland.

I'm not grumpy about though. It happens all the time with non-europeans. But now you know .

LOL, yes I know swiss things don't come from Sweden. I may have over-looked an obvious mistake, but I'm not a dipshit. What can I say? The guy said swiss cheese and I was too stupid to distinguish Swiss from Swedish.

Do you make good meatballs? Do you like Absolut? Do you drive a Volvo? Is your home decorated in IKEA?

See, I'm not a complete idiot!

Haha I didn't mean to be on you TNunley, it's just that this happens frequently so i might as well rectify things a little .
I'm actually feeling dumb as F right now cuz I have no idea what "swedish meatballs" are. Don't you eat meatballs in other countries? I thought italians liked meatballs. We eat them pretty often but there's absolutely nothing special about our meatballs.


To get back on topic. I REALLY enjoyed the Cowboys - Patriots game and I'll continue to watch more games to learn more and thanks rcg916, Sam and everyone else for helping me out!

Listen, I don't care what the topic is... we're talking about meatballs d@%n it!!!

I think what is called Swedish meatballs is in a thick beef broth. Italian meatballs have different spices/seasonings (oregano, basil, etc.) and generally Italian meatballs are used in Spaghetti.

I know you weren't getting on me man, I was getting on myself.

As for football, I haven't watched much this year, but I hear the Colts are doing pretty good again. They're 5-0 I think.

Maybe he should try finding the endzone more often, ya know points win games not yards, last time I checked the Pats have put up 30 plus points every week, the Steelers are in no position to talk about beating us

The Steelers Average 32pts a game and have the Number 1 Defense in the NFL the 2nd best Rushing Offense in the NFL..Parker getting Yards wins games we have Davenport to seal the deal and bang into the endzone.

Im not saying the steelers will win cause the pats are very good but i dont think they can put 30plus on the steelers. Steelers
