You just take the part after the = (llNzC2UL4wI) and embed it with YT clamps: [YT ][/YT ]

As such:



Btw, that is funny I believe I saw a tv clip of danish soccer players Miken Jensen and Tobias Mikkelsen from Rosenborg laughing their ***** of watching this

This one, is bit newer and also Norwegian, once again making fun of danish.



This one made me pee my pants almost, so funny

For people who don't understand - To many, Danish is very dificult to learn, not just to speak it, but especially our guttural pronunciations. So they are making fun off Danes actually forgetting how to speak Danish. Also, Danes tend to speak very lazy and not pronounce words.

Also we have a different way of using our numbers. We dont say the dominant number first but the latter. So instead of saying eightysix, Danes would say sixeighty!

Well I tried and obviously failed....I wrote them in by hand (going "advanced" where?)
So where do the YT calms go? I have tried both right after the = and then at the end.....first and last doesn't work either.

Well, when you reply, you automatically go to advanced. So don't worry about that part I think your problem is that you didn't delete the rest of the YT link. You only need the part after the =.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-mOy8VUEBk This is the whole YT adress and you take this part : s-mOy8VUEBk And then you mark it all and press the youtube button above when you are writing the post. that should wrap it automatically

s-mOy8VUEBk and then wrap it with these [YT ] [/YT ] I just had to make room between the T and the end clamp for them to be posted w/out a video.

Ha ha Lørenskog and Drammen was actually named the ugliest town (Lørenskog) and the ugliest city (Drammen) in Norway some years ago. It`s not like that anymore though.


Lørenskog is a typical suburb right outside of Oslo, Drammen is about 30-45 minutes outside of Oslo. They have cleaned it up the last couple of years and the areas around the river is really nice.

Only Lørenskog has a hockeyteam though and a preety good one to.

May I ask? Do you by any chance have a user on Airliners.net with the same name?

In writing it's almost the same, except the Norwegians made the spelling reform like sjokolade instead of danish chokolade.
Nah we say sjokolade, while u say skolaaaaaaaøøøøøøø

It's generally meant more as an inside joke between us, but I guess a few people actually takes it seriously.
But you can find rotten eggs in any basket.
I always cheer for Norway in sports, but I also love when Denmark beats them
and it's always a great laugh to hear norwegian commentators when Norway wins something.
Norway beat England in Football 1981....and Bjørge Lillelien goes amok:

Big game today! Sincerely hope you will win. The tournaments are not the same without Denmark (vs Norway The Slovenians are tricky though. Always good goaltending and good tactics, and play to their abilities, appear much better than they are on paper.
But Denmark will take this one.

1.) What seems to be the most popular NHL team in Norway when it comes to fandom? I have family there who like Minnesota as it's heavily Norwegian and where a lot of their family members moved to.

2.) Do you Norwegians root for your fellow Scandinavians? I know there seems to be a rivalry between Norway and Sweden for things, but you have that rivalry while maintaining a closer relationship in things (as opposed to America and Canada lol). If Norway gets eliminated from a tournament then are you cheering for Sweden or Denmark? You can answer for you and/or how most Norwegians are.

3.) A continuation of question 2, but since there isn't many Norwegian players to root for in the NHL, do you root for Swedes or Danes? Again, you can answer for you and/or how most Norwegians are.

4.) Who's the most popular Norwegian player right now? Any superstars that stand out?

Thanks for answering my questions!
1. Minnesota is a place where there are most likely more Norwegians than in Norway. Historically speaking.

But Pittsburgh Penguins got by far the most fans. Followed by the New York Rangers(because of Zuccarello) and then there is Detroit Red Wings(who has gotten the most media-coverage over the years, because of the amount of swedes on the team). Behind there, it's really close among several teams.

2. YES and NO. It really depends on the person and what happens before we go out. If there is a lot of arrogance from their part, then no. Denmark, Sweden and Norway has had a lot of discussion with each other in regards to Football and Winter Sports, and it tends to carry on here.

3. I don't think that is the general idea, but I do like some of the players more than the national team. Though, when Canada's fans act like **** during WC, I hope Sweden kicks their ass.

4. Mats Zuccarello, clearly because of the NHL and there has been a lot of fuzz here lately because of a sponsor deal he has with a betting-company. Because they are a competitor for the National betting company in Norway who funds most of Norwegian Sports. Therefore he got excluded from the National Team until that deal is cut off or expires. Patrick Thoresen also got a very good status, but Zuccarello is younger and more boheme-like.
