    The Sweden reference is a derivative from a scene in Star Trek: First Contact, where Lily says "definitely not Swedish" about the Borg, whose name she thought sounded Swedish.
    This is a reference to the Swedish tennis player Bjorn Borg, who won Wimbledon several times.

    Have you listened to Destiny?
    I'm not sure if they exist anymore but they used to be fairly big in the late 80s or so. Not death metal but "dark metal", according to themselves.

    Aha!
    Tried to look at your homepage but found no clues there...
    I WAS thinking that maybe you didn't like Swedish meatballs, which as we all know, have their counterpart among all spacefaring races in the galaxy.

    Now I don't have to live in uncertainty anymore.

    Well, it's not intended as an insult, so whether or not you take offense is up to you. I am partly of Swedish descent, but you couldn't tell what with my 6'6 height and blue eyes. No blond hair ,though.

    As for the meaning...I will give you one week to research it and post your answer here. If you haven't figured it out by then, I will give you the answer.

    I have spoken.

    started a topic Why not Sweden

    Why not Sweden

    Z'ha'dumDweller, your location says that you're location is "Definately not Sweden".

    Why? Should I feel insulted?
    Or should I feel glad that little Sweden is remembered out there?
