Feel like talking to a random Swede?

You have until June 24th to do so.

Last month, Sweden set up a new phone number called “The Swedish Number.” Call it and a Swede, any Swede, will answer to talk to you about their country.

Kind of like the surstromming hotline eh? Much like calling those 900 numbers advertised on late nite TV. Hoping for Brigitte Nielsen but ending up with stinky herring! I'm tempted but I'll probably pass....or just keep calling til Gitte answers...(swoon). This would not mean I'm I'm obsessed, just extremely focused...right?

Didn't they do something like this with on a twitter account, too? Someone would be the country's representative for a month?

Swedes are awesome. I've met many at hockey games. I just might call one and talk some hockey if I get bored.

I'd be more interest in discussing books and movies. Did Ingmar Bergman really represent Swedish society of the mid 1950s? Is Kenneth Branaughs TV series representative of todays Swedish society? Does my devotion to Volvo cars make me eligible for Swedish citizenry should the current US election go south?
