    If so, you wouldn't be so good as to translate this for me, would you?

    Yes, at the bottom of the article that is a link to a blog I write for, and I really want to know if it is a positive mention, or a negative one..

    Jag kan inte tala svenska. Ok, maybe a little bit, but that's too hard for me.

    Uhm... He didn't mention anything about your blog at all... He was talking about the basque, catalon and samer and linked to your blog because it was relevant to his story about minorities who want to become independent.

    Edit: Actually, the author is a she. Sorry bout that ;)

    she is saying that her grandfather is going to serbia in the night, and is wondering if she can go as well this year, although it might not be that smart because the albanians may want more land(i got no better translation than that).
    She hopes that there will be nor war or so. "Stupid groups of people that think that gold, being rich and having status is the only thing that matters. Kosovo is ours, serbian. do they think that they can just take any piece of land as soon as a war starts to cool down. And then a few years later demand independence."

    the last paragraph is about the sami, better known to other people as eskimos. She wonders if they are going to want their own part of sweden. And the basks and catalans in spain.
    the link to the blog(i guess "the right student" is yours?) says; "And other states".

    its not the best translation, i know, but its been a while since i practiced my swedish.

    Ahahaha.... I dare anyone to tell a sami that he's/she's an eskimo :hatty: They'd tie you to a reindeer and make it haul you all over the Finnmark plateau!

    :bonk: oops, i know even less about them than i thought i did apparently. just goes to show how little people outside of scandinavia know about them.

    but isnt there a name for the sami people that most people know, cause im pretty sure a lot of people have never heard the name sami? :confused:
