Road blocks set up by rioters
The Swedish man got the charge lifted, after a woman accused him of masturbating in front of his living room window.
Across Europe, from Paris to Stockholm, women stood outside the embassies of Arabic nations topless, protesting the second-rate citizen status in many Muslim majority countries. There are pics below and they are NSFW.
Recently making the rounds in the news and on blogs is this year’s Christmas toy catalog from Swedish Toys R Us licensee Toy-Toy Group. Unlike every other toy catalog, the Toy-Toy catalog doesn’t conform to rigid gender stereotypes about what boys like and what girls like, instead showing boys having fun with kitchen playsets and girls having fun with toy guns. I know, it’s pretty shocking stuff, girls wanting to play with toy cars. Gasp!
Since the 1920s, Swedish officials in the town of Sel have been holding on to a mysterious package put together in 1912. The package is a bit bulky, and explicitly instructed on the outside not to be opened until 2012. What was inside? Gold? Stocks? Diamonds?
For a couple months, the alien conspiracy web has been abuzz with an undersea expedition by the company OceanX to raise and examine a large, mysterious object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. The object, described by some as the “Baltic Sea Millenium Falcon” appears to some to be some sort of crashed alien spaceship, complete with deep tracks in the seabed where such an object would have skidded to a halt under the waves.

Last year, Anders Breivik went on Norways’s worst kill-crazy rampage since the days of the Vikings, killing seventy seven people in an afternoon after setting off a bomb in the middle of Oslo before taking a boat to an island and gunning down dozens of innocent teenagers at a summer camp. Yet Breivik pled that he did what he did out of “self defense”. Obviously.
