I am convinced that Sweden has a hidden agenda of world domination. And I'm not talking about military power or empire building. No, no. It's much more insidious than that, my friends. Slowly but surely, Swedish culture is absorbing ours. Want proof? Okay.

This process started in the 70's, with ABBA. Nowadays, examples of the Swedish menace are everywhere. In music, there are rock bands like the Vines and the Hellacopters, and metal bands like Soilwork, In Flames, and Dark Tranquility.

In literature and cinema, there are the Millennium trilogy and the Wallander books, and the films and TV series based off them.

Video games? One word: Minecraft.

And, of course, let us not forget IKEA.

You starting to get it now? I could go on, but I don't think I need to. In twenty years, we'll all be celebrating Walpurgis Night and drinking aquavit! And let me tell you...I'm totally fine with that.
Sweden is cool.
