What is with your obsession of creating pointless threads like these? Good God, man--if you don't want to adapt in this country then get the hell out!

Could your friend get me a job in Sweden?

Ok so you could move to a cold place that measures liquid volume the way you like, or you could stay in a warmer place (although Bergen County gets chilly) and learn how to think in US measurements. Which is more important to you? measurements or climate? Decide, make your move, and then live with it and stop complaining. Nobody likes a whiner (as this thread indicates).

It's my Mother's cousin that owns the software company in Sweden. Basically I was just joking about trying to get him a job there. I don't think they'd want to hire someone with his attitude. I don't really know you though and I could not truly make a recommendation to him unless I know you.

However, if you are sincere about this you should first look into whether or not it is possible for you to emigrate to Sweden from the USA. If it is, DM me and perhaps if you give me your resume I can get it to him. I do have his contact info in Sweden. I hear from him about once a year.

Good grief. This guy moves to the United States and then complains about how we do everything. He doesn't like our taillights, our system of measurements, and he wants to change us. WTF?

You know, I think people in Europe do some pretty stupid things, too. Actually, given the history of Europe over the past century, there's probably more stupidity and foolishness on a grand scale in Europe than any place on the planet. So the fact that some smug European is coming on here and wanting us to change how we do things to adapt to the enlightened European way is laughable beyond all human belief.

Well, go back to Europe.

But, more to the point, while the United States will experience economic problems over the next few years due to the mortgage fiasco, Europe is in for a far rougher ride. That's because the role of government has hobbled economic growth and the population is not even able to replace itself, which speaks to entirely new problems as today's workforce begins to retire.

The last thread like this one that this guy started was closed by a moderator because everyone pounced on him so hard.
That being said I do feel sorry for the kid. His parents dragged him to a foreign country and he is obviously having trouble learning our system. What he has to realize is that we Americans like our system just fine. As soon as he can he will make his way back to Europe and he will will either be happy or he'll wish he was back here. Who knows and who cares !
