    Ask the natives

    Yes, it spread from UK to Sweden in the 1870s. The first Swedish national football championship was held in 1896, and the Swedish Football Association was formed in 1904. Similarly, football hooliganism spread from UK to Sweden in the 1970s. Not that I know of. Patterns of physical exercise are changing, though: If anyone wanted to exercise in the past, they usually joined a team sport, like football or floorball, but in the last few decades it has become popular to exercise (weights and/or cardio) at a gym instead, which express a more individualistic mindset than in the past. Speaking of skateboard: there exist 91 skateboard clubs in Sweden, with 14 464 members.
  2. Hey! The beast is back :P Sorry for the hiatus, trying to balance life, and work and personal time, and failing at it LOL I'm making it a goal now, to give more time for ME, to GROW, to enjoy time with friends! I'd love to chat again whenever you're on!

  3. I agree with what convolution wrote a few days ago! I hope, that you are ok, Arpeejay.

    Ask the natives

    It is very hard to generalise about European countries. It's like asking about "Asian countries" expecting Lebanon, Kazakhstan, South Korea and India to have much in common. I expect French, Austrian, Irish and other European users here to answer your question about their particular national circumstances. The two big publicly visible sports in Sweden are ice hockey and football -- the one you play with your feet, not the one you play with your hands. From what I can gather from Swedish websites, in the year 2017 there were 654 166 persons who played football, and 3230 football clubs in Sweden. For hockey, the figures were 178 861 hockey players and 552 hockey clubs in Sweden. Financially speaking, the most affluent sport associations in Sweden are those who organise football (the sport Ronaldo and Rooney play, not that one which look like rugby), skiing and hockey -- in that order. On the other hand, the numbers of cricket players are 2510 and the number of cricket clubs are 59. The combined numbers of baseball players and softball players are 2654 (they are too few to form two separate associations), and the combined number of baseball and softball clubs are 36. I the case you wonder, the numbers of people who play American football in Sweden is 13 339 and the numbers of clubs 60. For comparison, it may also be of interest, that the number of persons who play floorball is 250 572 and the number of floorball clubs is 918. Neither cricket, baseball or softball are particularly big here.

    Thank you, Mdlftr. Your answer caused the mechanisms behind athletic scholarships to become comprehensible, especially this: It's also easy to forget, that university fees are not publicly funded everywhere. Student loans, on the other hand, is something I am very familiar with. 😉

    Looking for metabods story

    If you hadn't been asking about a Metabods story, I would have guessed it was this one: https://muscle-growth.org/topic/7653-troys-maggot/
  7. I have written and deleted stories several times in the last few days. I hope I overcome this inability to translate concept into words.

    Those stories are the best.

    Predictions in feedback

    As I might have told you in a similar thread, I become amused, when readers don't guess correctly about what I have planned. I stick to my original plan. That doesn't mean, that I'm not open to write some fan-service. I once included a wetplay scene, which is far outside my own cup of tea, but I had some sort of vibe that a few readers might appreciate it. I didn't change the general storyline. You are the author. Stick to your conception, which is probably more unique, than any expectations that you will follow a certain mold.
  10. By the look of how you ended this thread-starting post, Mdlftr, I get the impression that you miss him too, but in many other respects your message come through as insensitive. You weren't here the day when Arpeejay left, and what seem innocuous to you (and was innocuous in August), now become loaded with intertextuality and (probably erroneously) presumed negative subtext. It's a matter of timing more than anything else, and the reasons Arpeejay mentioned when he left.

    To each their own. I don't want to ban anybody else's fantasies.

    RPs involving children characters aren't fun in my opinion.

    A story on that theme would probably be more palatable, than Tino Nico's more apocalyptic idea. When I think about it, the historical background of Nazi-German and Soviet experiments could lend itself to an exciting spy thriller: A descendant of both Nazi-German and Soviet experiments has no idea about his family's past, but find himself, in adulthood, hunted by several intelligence- and security organisations: The Russians, the Americans and a Latin-American Nazi sect want to brainwash him into their weapon, German Vervassungsschutz want to interrogate him quite brutally since they erroneously believe he is an extremist, and Mossad want to assassinate him, and he don't know why in any of these instances. I'm not good at thrillers, so I leave the idea to anyone else. It would probably become similar to the Jason Bourne films.

    Thank you for the information. It's saddening to hear, that it went on so recently.

    I find the matter so unsettling, that I wouldn't find any entertainment in playing a setting like this. I do have written a few stories or story-segments on dark themes in the past, but always with an undertone of warning against the totalitarian potential present in every society. As for stories, as I wrote above, any author taking upon himself or herself to write about the theme, ought to be equipped with loads of sensibility, irony and Fingerspitzengefühl. The Finnish sense of humour, which take another route, than delicate tact, seem to be suitably equipped to make fun of Nazi Germany, East Germany, the Soviet Union and the present Russian Federation, while also taking a satirical shot at the U.S., at least by the impression I got from Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning and Iron Sky. Northern European irony, thickly spread. One problem might be, that humour doesn't always translate well over cultural boundaries. A Swedish comedian recently tried to make fun of the lack of awareness among liberal Swedes of their (our) own unacknowledged prejudices, at the same time as he tried to make fun of the Chinese government. Instead, large parts of East Asia interpreted the multi-levelled tongue-in-cheek irony as an insult against the oppressed Chinese people. The comedian has apologised publicly. If Swedish irony is hard to understand abroad, Finnish irony (which takes it to the next level) is probably even harder to understand, but in my personal opinion the Finns are really good at dark irony.
