Why, well this is the land of Narnia, where we are now. All that lies between this lamp-post and the great castle Cair Paravel at the Eastern Sea.

"When you run with the Doctor, it feels like it will never end.
But however hard you try, you can't run forever.
Everybody knows that everybody dies, and nobody knows it like the Doctor.
But I do think, that all the skies of all the worlds might just turn dark if he ever, for one moment, accepts it.

So remember when you're feeling very small, and insecure,
How amazing unlikely is your birth
And pray that there's intelligent life, somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

You know, Aslan, I'm a little disappointed in you. Did you honestly think by all this that you could save the human traitor? You are giving me your life and saving no one. So much for love.
 

Myself.

"I? I am a monument to all your sins."

How do you know that I am not, in fact, a 14th century armor suit or collection thereof?

Oh, okay.

Sweden has a tendency to celebrate team building, which sometimes is good, sometimes is bad. The good side is that generally sports teams are 'better than the parts' because they work well together. In daily life, people are rarely left behind. If you need a lot of extra assistance from your teachers to pass your class, you're entitled to it. (Does not always work in practice, but if you're behind you do get a lot of extra help.)

The bad side is that when we get super starts, who are happy to tell you they're super stars, they're considered arrogant and will be castigated for it. Similarily in school, don't point out if you're great at something neutral

The word 'lagom' means 'not too much, not too little', or 'not too far, not too short'. Just a good, reasonable amount/length/etc. So if someone is pouring you a drink you can say you just want 'lagom' so they don't fill it to the top, but aren't cheap either.

'Fika' is kinda the 'eat a cake/cookie/something' equivalent to eating a meal. If you go for a fika you're likely to have coffee or tea (or, less common, juice, milk or something) and some kind of bakery product, or less frequent, candy or something.

It's not that rare to eat like that in other countries I'm guessing, but it's pretty frequent here, like you'll do it several days a week. Idk, foreigners have commented the practice.

Oh, okay. Hmm.

We say 'full som en alika'; 'drunk as a daw (bird)'.

Instead of 'Caught red handed' we say 'tagen på sägen' (caught in bed).

I guess we don't say it that often, but 'you win some, you lose some' is kinda the equivalent of 'Upp som en sol, ner som en pannkaka' (Up like a sun, down like a pancake).

I hope you've been informed of the important Swedish words 'lagom' and 'fika' razz

...I haven't thought of one for a favorite.

I've noted some idioms... for instance I think the difference between the English 'kill two birds with one stone' and the Swedish equivalent which translates into 'kill two flies with one hit' is interesting.

That's... comforting and depressing, at the same time.

I'm starting to think these thread starters might actually not be sarcastic.

I'm torn between feeling disgust at them and feeling stupid for even considering them being serious.

And as the flames climbed high into the night
To light the sacrificial rite
I saw Satan laughing with delight
The day the music died

Don't do what you can't undo, until you've considered what you can't do once you've done it

Come in, fortunate favourite of the Queen.

Or else, not so fortunate.

If you don't mind having to live without things, it's a fine life!

If you don't mind taking it like it turns out, it's a fine life!

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.
