As those of you who have been following Superblog!! for a while know, we sometimes like to make fun of our hometown, even though, deep down, we actually harbor real feelings for it (such as hate).
And today I realized yet another reason why Linköping sucks! I had to go to the hospital because Superblog!! visitors have been draining all life from me lately. (Just kidding, it wasn't blog-related. OR WAS IT? Just kidding. OR AM I? Oh, stop it.) Anyway, as you can see from the topological map above, the hospital is located way the fuck up in the mountains compared to the rest of the city, which is flat as a marooned lesbian. Now, I'm young, gorgeous, and in pretty fucking excellent shape, but I still broke a sweat climbing that steep hill. Just imagine how many senior citizens and truly sick people must keel over and die on their way to the hospital, thereby saving the city a bunch of money. Is that a good thing? Yes, from a healthy tax-payer's standpoint I suppose it is, but it still strikes me as unethical.
So ever since I got out of there I've been wracking my brains on what's to be done about this, and I think there's really only one course of action that makes sense. To save innocent lives, the hospital must be destroyed. Or perhaps the rest of the city could be risen somehow.
That was the 4,201st reason why Linköping sucks, but before I go, let me tell you a little about another couple of landmarks visible on the map. First we have Linköping Cathedral:
Work on the Cathedral was started in 1230, with the main building works being completed in 1520. [...] Linköping Cathedral is the most impressive and expensive Swedish church building of the Middle Ages.
Yeah, wow. You know what they say about bragging, Linköping Cathedral? It makes you smell like pee! (Though to be fair that could also be because a lot of drunk people actually use the side of the cathedral as a toilet on weekends.)
The plane maneuvering the skies with the grace of a llama on stilts is the critically acclaimed war plane JAS 39 Gripen, manufactured in Linköping. It's more or less a commercial failure. (Though, presumably with the help of massive bribes, we did manage to unload a few of these to Czechija.)
