Five Amazing Facts About Linköping!

Like two days ago I almost promised to mention a few things about my hometown. Guess what? Here it comes.

1. Linköping's homepage.

From whatever point of the compass you come, as you approach Linköping your path is lined by billowing cornfields and the sweet smelling Östergötland soil.

That's BS. It smells like shit from several directions.

2. You can buy souvenirs from Linköping's Hockey Club. But you have to live in Sweden to do so. If you decide to move here, send me a mail and I will prepare a fiesta.

3. Linköping is the place where the mighty war plane JAS-Gripen is assembled. Planes don't kill people. (It's the murderous pilots.)

4. In Linköping, the nerds are numerous. They make interesting pages about Science Fiction.

5. If you live in Linköping you can study at the University of Linköping. FUN FUN FUN !!!

Exploring new fields, walking new paths. A non-traditional cooperation across subject and faculty borders defines the interdisciplinary approach that is the hallmark of Linköping University (LiU). An entrepreneurial spirit of education characterizes the university’s history.

Recognize it? Yep, the normal gibberish you could have cut and pasted from any university homepage in the world.... (except the explicit part about the name of the university) But still. If you combine these things (all 5) it almost makes Linköping a place where you can live for a while.
