sverok helps swedish organisations that serves the swedish population. for example
2013-03-04 19:38

2013-03-04 19:49

Nice one :D I got another mystery for you: Why can't Swedish people pronounce the simple word "just"? They seem to have a general problem with the letter "J"... Tongue malfunction or the result of super-AIDS? jk Btw: Ikea furniture sucks! Absolutely no quality. Money back or Blitzkrieg!
2013-03-03 16:12
Poland put an end to the blitzkrieg in September '39 :)
2013-03-03 16:25
ikea furniture can easily last 30-40 years as long as you treat them normally.
2013-03-03 16:35
bought fake-leather couch 4 years ago at Ikea. it's already full of cracks and looks wasted though I always treated it "normal" and I really took care on it.
2013-03-03 17:38
I have no problem pronouncing "just", and I don't think most swedes do. It's a matter of dialect though, and we have plenty of different ones here. Carn is very very swedish (swenglish) in the way he pronounces english words. Does that really bother you that much?
2013-03-03 16:36
zaihtaM and many other Swedes do the same. "Does that really bother you that much?" Yes. Can't sleep anymore. It makes me go crazy. Always hearing Swedish voices in my head, mispronouncing "just".
2013-03-03 17:37
2013-03-03 19:02
Sweden wmb 
I can prononunce the word "just" without any stutter or accent. I'm accent neutral when I speak in English. These swedes who talks with accents are people living outside Stockholm. They don't speak "metro swedish". I lived in a soho-area for 13 years, I basically lived at a place where the general Swede is rich. By that, Södermalm in Stockholm (south-central Stockholm). All these people who had problems pronouncing are oftenly people who had less quality in terms of English in school. :) ZaihtaM lives outside Stockholm and talks with a södermanlandstype of Swedish. Which basically is a Swedish where you prononunce the words stronger than "Metro Swedish". For instance if you ask him to pronounce seven, he'd pronounce it a bit stronger and with less vocal. By that, he doesn't talk nasally he talks from his throat mainly.
2013-03-03 19:59
The Swedish we speak in my town (Nynäshamn) is to 99% the same Swedish the people in Stockholm speaks, I only live 40 minutes away from Stockholm :) My English is most likely "bad" because of other factors.
2013-03-03 21:55
Sweden wmb 
Nynäshamn is not far away from Stockholm but has a different tone of accent. People in Västerås speaks also another accent and they live not far away from here either. (45mins from Stockholm) The only factor that your english verbally is broken is because of the fact that you live outside Stockholm which doesnt give you the tools or the education quality in comparisation to Stockholms innercity schools. Nynäshamn is also an own muncipality but is for some funny reason added to the same county. Its basically an own town outside Stockholm that is inside Stockholms county strangely enough.
2013-03-03 22:21
wheres GeT_RiGhT from? isnt he from Stockholm? hes like the perfect example of mispronouncing "just/join/enjoy" :D
2013-03-03 23:16
Sweden wmb 
I dont know where he is originally from in Sweden but he lives like 2-3 minutes away from me. I live in the same area as him. And he have lived here for the past years i guess so. And this is suburb Stockholm, 10-15 minutes away from central with train. A little place called Spånga, I live at the border of the place.
2013-03-03 23:21
You could never tell the difference between someone from Nynäshamn and someone from Stockholm just from the way they speak. Basically the only difference we have is that we pronounce "ö" a bit differently, but that is very subtle.
2013-03-04 00:32
Sweden wmb 
You can do that if your a metro stockholmare. I'm a metro guy, raised in the better areas of Stockholm I can tell the difference between someone from central Stockholm / suburbs and regular villagers like you :) Sörmländska is different from regular Stockholmska. The vocals are pronounced different and it has less accent in the words.
2013-03-04 02:28
Haha yes! Everytime I hear a Swede say just without saying the "ch" sound, I mock them for it :D
2013-03-03 17:14
"ch" sound in just o_O?
2013-03-03 20:24
it's like "dchust" or "djøst" you know :D
2013-03-03 21:05
Yea, I'd personally go with "dj.." :D
2013-03-03 21:12
I was thinking that at first, but it could sound like I was talking about a DJ or something :D DJ Ust in da hooouse!
2013-03-03 23:09
2013-03-03 23:09
tz maybe? or tza:)
2013-03-04 00:55
Don't think that would fit in the word "just" :P
2013-03-04 14:48
tzast like that:)
2013-03-04 15:49
Well in my head there are a lot of ways to say it :P Djust, Gjust etc. I guess it depens how you pronounce it ;)
2013-03-04 19:16
yeap,but look at this,T and Z are letters that are pronnounced the same (90% of times at least). so if u want to explain to someone how this is pronnounced,its a perfect example :)
2013-03-04 19:50
Yeah I see your point ;)
2013-03-04 21:18
bitches love accents

I find this video to be a conspiracy within itself as the storyteller, Björn, reminds me a lot of carn himself! And their voices are impeccably similar. Studying this video further, the laptop Björn is using is a MSI laptop, which Carn also have, and is in fact sponsored by them. I'm not entirely sure, but there's definitely something up here.
2013-03-04 11:43
So much hate in this thread. Not everyone plays video games in Sweden.
2013-03-04 16:57
Yes we all do, we can't live without them and everyone in Sweden is proud of how good we are in computer games. There's also Polar bears running around on the streets and we're all gay.
2013-03-04 18:17
always thought is something wrong with sweden
2013-03-04 19:18
You're either 12 or not German.

2013-03-05 14:55
lol so many jealous upset flag faking poles in this thread. How sad that people who get upset by this video can't understand that it's just for fun and a part of the release of their new SC2 player SaSe. If you hate Sweden fine i don't give a fuck but then atleast plz get a sense of humour.
2013-03-05 22:20
i hate swedes only at PokerStars they tilt me out shit of me
2013-03-06 09:08
Don't know who the guy at 2013 on the timeline is but I would make a case for your follow up in fnatic last year, Richard Landstrom. if he keeps up his stellar form for the rest of the year he will most likely be CS player of the year, and perhaps even E-sports player of the year.
2013-03-06 19:21
