    i cannot believe you swallow that shit. but if you think it's ok, then fine- given you're a swede and my last burk expired three years ago, i'd say you have the upper hand on experience. to all the other snus-curious people out there- don't follow his example! ;-)

    ^ do you think? in my experience, swallowing snus really has led to extended periods of nausea and vomiting, so i don't see why pointing that out is so bad. i really don't see what the problem is, brahgg- this is chewing tobacco, it's not meant to be swallowed.

    ??? sorry kid, i didn't mean to offend you, but i would've thought that a topic thread discussing tobacco products could've stood up to a little PG-rated language. personally i'd say my word choice was entirely appropriate for the context.

    perhaps it's a little inappropriate for a 13 year-old to be reading about tobacco products in the first place- last i checked you had to be 18?

    nah man I'm not 13, just had a moment of supreme immaturity, sorry for disturbing the serious tobacco conversation. And word choice was entirely appropriate, but taken out of context, it made me chuckle in a juvenile manner.

    Do you spit out your snus every time the snus begin to pour? ( sorry for my english / could not find the right word for it ) .


    I dont think its tastes that bad , and mostly of the people who "snusar" in sweden does acctully swallow it. Whats the point of snusa if you dont like the taste? ;d You get use to the taste after a while :)

    det e helt okej, jag forstaa vad du menar ;-)

    now, it's been a long time since i've had access to loose (grovt) snus, but if you mean when it starts to break up, then yeah- but usually all the goodness is gone by that stage. i usually got rid of mine after about a half hour or so, whether it was loose or packet snus. and i do like the taste, but i can assure you it's not good for your belly- i never met anyone in scandinavia who ever swallowed their snus, so things must've changed a great deal since i was there last ;-)

    jovisst kan jag svenska, ens om det ar bara lite nufortiden, det har var't jattelange se'n jag har pratit...
    iallafall...

    yeah, you can buy snus outside of sweden, but it's a strictly controlled substance here in australia. swedes and norwegians are allowed to bring in small amounts for personal usage, but australians aren't allowed to buy it or sell it, and we're strongly discouraged from importing in via the internet- i think a log would attract nearly $350 AUD (about 2000sek) in import duties, so most companies won't even bother selling it to us. i think this is mostly to protect the nictine patch and gum industries, because the laws were only really tightened a couple of years ago...

    jag bodde i malmö i en stund för ett par år sen, det är ju ganska lätt att lära sig ett språk när man stannar i landet. Jag hade en stora ordbok, tittade på teven och läste tidningar, särskilt seriertidningar, som galago. det är inte ett tufft språk att lära sig, behövs bara plugga lite...

    haha, back to english- i may just have to take you up on that offer some day ;-)

    Cool effort, Davety. Otherwise the majority of english speaking people coming to Sweden dont learn much. Much because of the Swedes themselves that are eager to speak
    english :)

    Imponerande att du fortfarande kan uttrycka dig så pass väl. Jag som bor i spanien håller på att glömma bort mitt eget modersmål. Nja, kanske inte helt
    men en del i alla fall.

    tack ska du ha, men det vore inte så imponerande om du hörde mig prata, det är mycket lättare att skriva för mig. och det sägs också att jag pratar som en skåning, trots att jag själv knappt kan förstå skånska :oops: men det är helt okej, det har varit jättelange sen jag var i sverige, så det är tur att jag inte har glömt mer, det för drygt tio år sen nu...

    i think swedish is also quite easy for australians to learn for some reason, ive met quite a few of us who picked it up pretty quickly, but you're right about the speaking english in sweden- you can never find someone to practice swedish with, the only time i ever found people who didn't speak english was during emergencies when i really needed to speak english :roll:

    no they're lying to you, swedish is quite simple to learn, at least in how it relates to english. i think that may be a myth peddled about in sweden to make swedes more tolerant of people who don't learn the language quickly...

    no, not at all- it actually makes it simpler. a lot of other languages (including english) have those sounds in the language, so they're easily produced by speakers of other languages, and the fact that they're signified by their own characters means that swedish actually represents them phonetically in written form- compare that with the 'gh' combination in english, like in enough, through, thought, drought, draught etc. the only sound that isn't easily replicable by english speaker is the sk/sj sound, but the rest are fairly simple. swedish also has a very simple grammar, with no conjugation and verb tenses that correlate closely to their english equivalent (except perhaps the passive 's'-clitic form, which is learnt easily enough). the only point that tends to throw people about swedish is the irregular use of propositions (pa, att, om, etc), but apart from that it's all fairly straightforward...

    sorry if that was a little technical, i'm doing a masters degree in linguistics and language education...
