Are Swedes the most boring people in the world?

Born that way or made that way?

True, it is brought on partially by an extreme state of jealousy and an equally extreme state of attempting to disguise this jealousy.

But this is old news and discussed ad nauseaum on this website.

Swedes do tend to act more normal when they are not around other Swedes.

I think the majority of non-Swedes who lived there would agree.

Also, most people agree that Swedes are the only ethnic group that you can generalize about, any other group, I would not encourage generalizing.

Takes one to know one so you are probably perfectly qualified to judge them.

Why would you be so interested in how boring Swedes are?

I mean, yes, "boring" only begins to describe them, but I thought you, as the "once they go black they never go back" guy, who wants to turn Sweden into the same 3rd world nation you come from guy, would be more interested in banging all those elderly white Swedish "chicks" who supposedly can't resist you.

It worked for the Gimp, although true, he is just a locked-in-the-basement plaything for his boring "partner" who just happens to identify as an elderly, white, sun-tanned Swedish "woman".

Or have all those batik hexorna denied you, so many times by this point, you blame them for being boring, rather than yourself, as a bigoted racist?
