Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Tydligen ett bad med järnsalter, numera i överförd betydelse.

Aha! Godt uttrykk, sjøl om det kanskje er en mild beskrivelse av hva kapitalismen gjennomgår nå ;p

Det intressanta är att Sveriges finansminister säger att detta är resultat av "rå girighet". Nu väntar jag bara på att han skall uttala sig om att man måste reglera marknadens spelregler.....
