Sep 17 Word of the Day
Fredagsmys is pretty much the most holy tradition of Sweden. The word origins from two words; β€œfredag” and β€œmys”, which roughly translates to Friday and cozy. Every Friday, all Swedes drive by the supermarket to buy ingredients for taco, soda and chips. Then, they all sit down in their sofas with their families or friends and watch telly. Usually, the parents fall asleep after a few glasses of wine or beer while the kids stuff themselves with chips until they have a stomach ache.
Now it's the end of the week; it is time for fredagsmys!

The worst longboarding internet forum in existence. What was once a place to go and learn about an upcoming sport has turned into a dive; where teenage douche bags convene to bitch and moan about how monumentally expensive a new set of wheels are.
Average SilverFish member (Teenage Douche) - "I was about to use my moms credit card to order some FlyWheels but Abec 11 increased the price by four dollars. I'm not even joking, the manufacturers screw me over every chance they get."

Endangered SilverFish Minority (Logical Young Professional) - "Shut the fuck up you ungrateful bitch. No one is asking you to longboard. In my day I earned half as much, yet I still managed to afford an ounce of headies every month."
