Meet Bjorn Barrefors: Bjorn is a decathlete from Sweden. Bjorn is hot. Unfortunately for us, Bjorn did not make the 2012 Olympic team. While it sucks we have to wait ‘til 2016 to see him compete, it doesn’t mean we can’t admire his body.
Every July, a classic car festival called Power Big Meet takes place in the town of Västerås, Sweden. “Raggare” are Swedes who love ’50s Americana culture - Elvis, rockabilly music, greaser style, and a somewhat tone-deaf use of the Confederate flag. Here are photos from this year’s fest.

Unicef Sweden launched a new commercial. It’s a little harsh, but that’s the point.

Behold, the Derp Of The Jungle! In its own way, it’s quite impressive.
