in this clip the great Swedish comedian Robert Gustavsson explains the five phases of your typical Finn being wasted. For those who can’t follow the language of swedes (not the vegetable, harhar), the phases are: silence, euphoric happiness, melancholy, hostility and coma.

another interesting idea. brings to mind the joke about a prostitute who had her pricelist in braille, or summat..
for some reason, the ‘getting information while shaking hands’ seems very intriguing.
want to see something funny and cute? have a look at the links below. Apparently it’s Will Ferrell and his daughter Pearl (her being cute, not will) doing two funny sketches. Also, I bumped into this site ‘funny or die’. Have a look at it and be entertained.
what makes things extreme? I’d say time. There was a time in the 70′s when men wearing ear piercings was considered extreme – I’m sure it’s considered extreme even today in some circles. Today I live in a society where tattoos aren’t only worn by ex inmates, sailors, etc. Same goes with earrings – man with pierced earlobes isn’t necessarily a member of the gay community, nor does he have to be a drug pusher.
We’ve come a long way in terms of decorating ones body. Some people might call themselves modern primitives in terms of wearing tribal style tattoos, scars and piercings . Still, people do much more than get scarred or branded. They wear implants, modify the shape of their ears.. Some people amputate fingers, some have their tongue cut in half and some decorate their genitals. Wearing genital piercings isn’t really that new. For instance, Queen Victoria’s husband Prince Albert has a piercing named after him. (more reading on the history of body piercing.)
Today, it’s possible to do all kinds of things. These things include wear an implant in your eye, have your eyeball tattooed or have your cervix pierced. If this is too much, why not go for the new classic – uvula piercing.
I’m not saying this is all new – surely things similar to these have tampered with before, but this where we stand now. Sky isn’t the limit anymore?
