By the way, I'm curious: Do you see "Göteborg" or "Gothenburg" more often?


It's "Gothenburg" in English, because English speaking people can only handle 26 letters. When you start adding funny little marks above/under letters it all gets a little bit too confusing. Damn foreigners!

US.

Born in Virginia (East Coast, center)

Live in Montana (on border with Canada, near West Coast)

Currently in Memphis, TN home of Blues Music (just Southwest of Virginia)


I included the descriptions of where I am in the US, because the scale of countries often escapes those that are not here. For example in my home State of Montana, you can drive 110kph for 8 hours and still be in the same state. If you did that same drive and started in London then through the tunnel Eastward, in 880km you would be somewhere in Germany, having crossed several countries.

What kind of comparison is that? If you start in Helena, Montana, and drive 880km to the west, you're right in the pacific
However if you start in Flensburg, Germany, and drive 880km to the south, you are still in Germany.

Since when are you Americans using the metric system btw?
