    Sweden, land of weird northern phallus worshiping vikings who traded and explored all peaceful like. (Unless it was England!)
    Good thing Norway's where it's at or the entire landmass itself would be a call out to that little fact though then the first version of the Euro country omitted Norway much to everyone's enjoyment. :p

    Also had this guy as the one king who passed away from eating himself to death in a feast of epic proportions which is quite a accomplishment despite how it ended.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Frederick,_King_of_Sweden

    Lobster, some fancy fish egg thing, German sausage, some dried fish type dish and how many bottles of champagne.

    Then for dessert 14 of these things.

    [​IMG]

    They're pretty good but eating one is pretty filling so 13 more should be next to impossible and doing the whole thing with hot milk makes them even harder (Well, soggier!) and tougher to digest because they kinda fill one up pretty quickly.
    Plenty of other weird and strange myths and historical events as with every old place in the world I suppose but yep it's good to be king indeed.
    (Good thing there was likely no flammable objects nearby or the resulting epic gas meeting flame might have blown part of the castle out.)
    (Think there was a procession like that for a old pope who they kept on display during the burial but the heat and rot and gasses and suddenly a loud noise and *poof* well they weren't going to forget that event anytime soon.)

    (EDIT: Ah not quite but the results were kinda like that. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riccardo_Galeazzi-Lisi )

    Ain't nobody ever let one rip like that in the Vatican since.


    EDIT: Sweden does have it's good points and several other accomplishments but to be honest those aren't what people remember or want to hear about, it's what went wrong or failed spectacularly that is the interesting points of history especially for older places with a lot of it and what finds can be unearthed and preserved for all future to read about ha ha. :D

    Was born in USSR. Unfortunate it is that it broke apart right when I was graduating from my university because I almost became a space engineer - I should have work in laboratory responsible for spaceships software. Instead I became trivial programmer.

    @JonasBeckman ABBA alone is enough to be proud.

    Shire???

    I have lived in multiple states and even continents, but I currently live near where I was born, in (Upstate) New York, USA.

    *I don't like saying New York since everyone automatically assumes I'm in New York City, when I actually am a good ~6-8 hour drive away from that hell hole. :p
