In Sweden, it's illegal for parents to insult or shame their children.
As of 2004 you can pay your Swedish taxes by sending an SMS message from your cell phone.
Taxes are generally between 50 and 70% of your income. (Of course your employer already pays the full amount of your salary to the government in taxes before you even get anything.)
You can take sick leave during your vacation if you are ill.
The strongest girl in the world is Swedish!
There is no right turn on red.
While prostitution is legal, it is illegal to use the services of a prostitute.
Sweden has not participated in any war in almost two centuries.
Learning to speak Swedish is frustrating because everyone in Sweden already speaks better English than you will ever speak Swedish.
(I wish I could have said the same about Switzerland... )
