Now had I known this from a certain member here who is from Denmark, I would have moved there before I spent a lifes saving on my son tuition. LOL.

The 22 hour work week isn’t generally true though; the general work week is 37 hours (plus ½ hour lunch time per day which you are not paid for).

You pay for the “free” stuff through higher taxes, though. :wink:

In ‘[I]Neither Here Nor There[/I]’ Bill Bryson describes a paradise where the young office workers of Copenhagen spend their lunch breaks sunbathing topless in the warmth of spring.

And when the police find a teenager who has engaged in a bit of ill-judged [I]recreational pharmacology,[/I] they don’t lock him up with hardened criminals but take him home to his parents.

Not to mention the “world-beating debt burden”. :iagree:

There is no such thing as a free lunch. The bill always come due at some point. The rapidly increasing debt level of many developed countries is not sustainable indefinitely.

Lame excuse. I’m sure you can do better :p:p:p
You probably actually meant to say 27 instead of 22 hours.

Danish politician parties are awesome as well :smiley:

[QUOTE=Mr. Belvedere;2750185]Danish politician parties are awesome as well :D[/QUOTE] You can have them all free of charge… except [I]her[/I] of course. :smiley:

We only ask that you promise not to send any of them back. That last part is very important. :iagree:

Presumably she didn’t want to be criticised for spending too much on her wardrobe.

But was it really a good idea to economise on the quantity rather than quality? :confused:

           She is not free of charge?   I wonder what the going rate is in Denmark, oh I forgot, LOL  20.00an hour.:bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile:

[QUOTE=alan1476;2750272]She is not free of charge?[/QUOTE] She’s a keeper - we’re not sending her off to Belvedere country or Alanland. :disagree:

I’ve never heard about her before this thread, but somehow she makes politics seem more interesting! :bigsmile:

You can keep her. We have tried using brains for a couple of thousands of years. That seems not to work. Maybe beauty will. :slight_smile:

I’ve been to Denmark once. Nice country. Bit flat and windy. Nice people. Is Lego Land still worth it?

[QUOTE=Mr. Belvedere;2750309]Is Lego Land still worth it?[/QUOTE] Actually… I’ve never been to Legoland.
Disneyland, Sea World, and assorted attractions in distant countries, yes, but Legoland here in Denmark, no. :o
