Greta is eleven years old and has gone two months without eating. Her heart rate and blood pressure show clear signs of starvation. She has stopped speaking to anyone but her parents and younger sister, Beata.
 
After years of depression, eating disorders, and anxiety attacks, she finally receives a medical diagnosis: Asperger’s syndrome, high-functioning autism, and OCD. She also suffers from selective mutism—which explains why she sometimes can’t speak to anyone outside her closest family. When she wants to tell a climate researcher that she plans a school strike on behalf of the environment, she speaks through her father.
 
The book Scenes from the Heart (“Scener från Hjärtat,” 2018) recounts these medical difficulties and the events that led to Greta Thunberg’s now-famous “school strike for climate,” in which hundreds of thousands of children have refused to attend school to protest about government inaction over climate change. Greta herself strikes every Friday and spent three weeks sitting outside the Swedish Parliament at the beginning of the school year. Written by her family—mother, father, Beata and Greta—the story is told in the voice of Greta’s mother, the opera soprano Malena Ernman, who was a celebrity in Europe long before her daughter’s fame. Although the book is only available in Swedish for the time being, it is already being translated into numerous languages—a development that reflects the global fascination with Thunberg’s campaign.

Best line in a Scandi Noir. Saga is at a bar in a nightclub and goes up to a bloke.

 

Saga: I want to have sex with you.

 

Bloke: Would you like a drink?

 

Saga: I do not want a drink. I want to have sex with you.

The fascination is (leftist) media made.

 

 

I hold suicide before she is 30 probable.

Copenhagen police station hit as Danish capital sees second blast


2 hours ago
 

An explosion has hit a police station in the Danish capital, Copenhagen, the second blast to hit the city this week.

 

The building was damaged but no-one was injured in the incident early on Saturday, which took place just outside the city centre.

 

On Tuesday, there was a powerful explosion outside the national tax agency, in what the authorities say was a deliberate attack.

 

It is unclear if the two incidents are linked.

 

Police say they are looking for a man who was seen fleeing the scene of the police station blast, who was wearing dark clothing and white shoes.

 

"This was not an accident, but a deliberate act," Chief Police Inspector Jorgen Bergen Skov said, adding that while the investigation was still under way, nothing suggested it was terror-related.

 

"These were attacks against buildings, not people," he said. "But it is too early to say anything about the motive."

 

One person was slightly injured in the explosion at the tax agency earlier in the week.

 

The blast, which happened late on Tuesday, smashed windows and damaged the front of the building.

Per the photo of the suspect, they're looking for Bigfoot. Or this being Scandinavia, probably a small troll.

I personally have never understood the appeal of white trainers outside a tennis court or a gym hall. They get dirty quickly on the streets.

 

 

 

 

 

from the finlan finland finland department:

 

 

KALSARIKÄNNIT
The feeling when you are going to get drunk home alone in your underwear – with no intention of going out.
 
A drink. At home. In your underwear. And there is a word for it. Kalsarikännit.
 
 
there is even an emoji for it:
 
emoji-kalsarikannit_m.png
 
 
 
and there is a "the voice" emoji:
 
emoji-the_voice.png
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
All published by the government of finland no less: https://finland.fi/emoji/(there are many more)
 
 
Certainly more sensible than recent additions to the emoji unicode block.

There was a time I linked to wear sneakers, but I don't feel young and sporty enough anymore. :D

They caught at least one suspect in the Copenhagen blasts BTW - a Swede. No doubt a revisionist trying to re-establish Swedish rule over Greater Scandinavia.

Swede suspected of Copenhagen blast to be extradited to Denmark

(Reuters) - A man detained in Sweden on suspicion of being behind an explosion near a Danish government agency is to be handed over to Denmark, Swedish radio reported.

The Malmo district court on Friday formally detained the 22-year-old Swede after Swedish police arrested him on Tuesday at the request of Denmark, the public broadcaster said.

Him and another man are suspected of having detonated a bomb outside the Danish Tax Agency on Aug. 7 that injured one person and damaged the front of the building.

If we are to believe information (read rumour) found on the net then one of the "swedish" suspects is of turkish/bulgarian origin and the other one is lebanese. Why they did it is a bit of a mystery but at least the lebanese swede is supposed to have some leanings towards socialism.
