    | I'm still not sure about the "slamming" and "insulting", though.

    All those who believe that he "didn't read it" saddle up a pig for a
    flight to a Baltic seaport. Helsingborg, Luleå, Oxelösund,
    Trelleborg, or Stockholm.

    The point is, The Baltic Sea is contained by Sweden to its East.
    Without the Baltic, Sweden would have found it tough to be the
    powerhouse it was in the Hanseatic League, which depended on the Baltic
    to facilitate trade. So, an association of Sweden with the Baltic Sea
    is not at all ridiculous.

    It seems that once again there are nuances of English usage with
    association, idiom, metaphor, etc. where you miss the point.

    Now go ahead and give me an English & geography lesson.

    No. It isn't. Assumptions aren't made on a 50% chance, Peter. Then they
    would be called guesses. Assumptions are made when you have data that
    supports the assumption and no data that supports the opposite.

    Just stop posting in these kind of threads. You are way out of your
    league.
    [/QUOTE]

    As you point out, since the opposite conclusion can be drawn from the
    same set of facts, you have made an invalid assumption.

    But then I forgot, you are much smarter than anyone else here.

    He would rather pick on words. He needs reminding that the USA is an
    Atlantic power, and a Pacific power. There was no error in geography.
    Simply an attempt to divert attention from being wrong.

    Since he is so much smarter than any of us, I don't understand why he
    brings himself down to our level.

    Now you're lying about what I've said. I have "pointed" to no such
    thing.
    Well, smarter than some, for sure. :)

    So following your logic is lying, when it leds to a conclusion you don't
    like.

    Refering to Sweden as "the Baltic" is indeed ridiculous. And trying to
    retcon it to make it seem like you meant "the Baltic Sea" is just beyond
    weird.

    "Now let's see what sort of response that unread bit of information
    garners from the Baltic Sea"

    Say what? Why would you refer to the sea when inquiring about the
    inhabitants of a country? Especially considering that the expression
    "The Baltic" is a perfectly acceptable way to refer to the actual Baltic
    states. But noo, you can't be wrong, so you have to change it to mean
    the Baltic *SEA*, which Sweden has shores to, so obviously it's
    perfectly logical. Haha.
    Haha, yeah - the English nuances that makes Sweden "the Baltic". :-D
    You don't seem to be receptive, Mr Can't Be Wrong.

    ....and you understand everything?

    Methinks this is a fine example of a Swede making a mountain out of a
    molehill due to a particularly anal aspect in his character.

    I have no idea why he does - why not just say "Oops, sorry, I meant
    Scandinavia, not "the Baltic".. my mistake. You know, like normal people
    do when they make mistakes. Like I do when I make mistakes. Here are
    some example for those with short memory:




    In response to Savageduck even:

    08/14/2013 <>

    "Ooops! My mistake :)"

    Also in response to Savageduck:

    Nora
    08/20/2013 <>

    "I saw the time stamp of his post, which read: Mon,
    19 Aug 2013 05:29:03 -0700 (PDT) And, stupidly enough I read
    that as: Mon, 19 Aug 2013 05:29:03 +0700 (UTC) Which would
    place him in America. My mistake. (see, no problem admitting
    to mistakes when there is support for me being wrong)"

    And to J. Clarke:

    Oh my GOD!
    08/02/2013 <>

    "Ooops, I meant "textbook example". My mistake. This was a
    mistake I made by in my head translating the swedish
    expression "skolboksexempel" which literally becomes "school
    book example", but the real translation is "textbook
    example". Sorry about that."

    To the biggest troll in the group:

    Buying Adobe Elements?
    05/28/2013 <>

    "My apologies, my bad. Sorry about that :)"

    I don't remember, this could be slightly sarcastic:

    Buying Adobe Elements?
    05/24/2013 <>

    "My deepest apologies."

    In case you missed it, here is a louder WHOOSH!
    There are times in English usage that words can take a different
    connotation given location used and the culture using them. For
    example, "The South", The Border", "Mid-Atlantic", etc. My use of "the
    Baltic" was to denote a general geographic area, and in that respect my
    usage was accurate.

    ....and you still don't get it.
    You should use a sig delimiter not a comma.
