How many wars have the Swedes won lately?
IIRC, their last war was almost 200 years ago - which they lost.

Snarky.
Good rebuttal of your comment in the DADT thread. Shows that people can be trusted to behave.

Ah! Original sin has been rescinded?
Somehow that don't sound too good. :D

Recinded? Its a concept of relevance only to the followers of the Three Books. How can you rescind something of such doubtful provenance?

P.S. What has original sin got to do with the Swedish Navy (amongst many others) working successfully with mixed gender crew?

+1, I'm used to thread drift, there are some strange currents in the bilge, but this is just bizarre.

That's why we don't have a police force.
Right?

Possibly but not that I recall. I haven't read much Sci Fi or fantasy since I was in my early 20's.

I'm a real fan of saunas, and while working in Germany for a couple of weeks took every chance to go down to the hotels basement rec area ( Copthorn Hannover if anyones interested, its a damn good hotel and that rec area is awesome) and alternate between the spa pool and the sauna. No one in the mixed gender facility wore clothes, and while its very relaxing, even I would admit that most of the bodies in there looked a lot better clothed.
Thats reality.

John, I suspect that if I were to show up in a nudist colony, they'd take up a collection to buy me clothes! :D
