Outlying incidents like this one notwithstanding, I'd much rather walk down a Stockholm street alone at 2AM than a street in any large US city alone at 2PM.

And I'd much rather have my wife walk down a Stockholm street alone at 2AM than a street in any large US city alone at 2PM.

(You do realise that you reveal yourself to be a complete moron by repeating such nonsense, right? Rhetorical question--you needn't bother answering.)

You're spelling it g-o-o-d but pronouncing it "evil and incompetent".

It's not your system--it's your employer's. If you feel that you have to make yourself "indispensable" in such a fashion, you're doing it wrong.

Who lives in Stockholm and pays less than $1500/month for an apartment? (Or did they exclude second hand rent, which is 300% of list price?)

Stockholm isn't exactly cheap, granted, but if you're paying that much for a flat there, you're doing it wrong. My mortgage + maintenance for a 105 kvm (almost 1100 sqft, which is huge for Stockholm) 3BR ("fyra rum + kök") is about half that, it takes about 5 minutes to walk to the nearest stop on the Tunnelbana and it's about 15 minutes to ride the train from there to Centralen.

ProTip1: You do NOT have to live on Kungsholmen or Södermalm to have a nice home in a nice neighbourhood with easy access to downtown. I'm right next to Nacka Reservatet, too.

ProTip2: The rental market in Stockholm is the most completely fucked up I've seen anywhere, and I've lived all over the US and 4 other countries. Buying is heaps cheaper, and that way you get equity as part of the deal.

You can call it just a superstition if you like but psychologists, sociologists, and economists have made connections between Christian tradition and a healthy society. I'm not saying following every Christian belief will bring an ideal society, only that we've seen Christian societies excel where others did not.

I'm not gonna mod you down, but I will lay a big [citation needed] on you.
