One kind of Swedish joke is about "Norwegian" made-up words, and trying to mimic the Norwegian language, which (most often) is very much like Swedish.
Many words up here in W Sweden, that are dialectical are actually Norwegian words.
About once a year, when it gets cold and snowy, I watch John Carpenter's The Thing (1982). I love the part where MacReady (Kurt Russell) calls out "Hey, Sweden!" and the Doctor Copper goes, "They're not Swedish, Mac. They're Norwegian."

I was told by a visiting Scotsman that Mel Gibson's Braveheart (1996) is very popular in Scotland. I'm wondering, is The Thing (1982) popular in Norway & Sweden?

Cal,

I was about to get my left shoulder surgically treated for anterior dislocations when a friend who practiced myofascial trigger point therapy insisted on helping me.

His method was simple he held my right arm up behind my back and then the left one. The left simply didn't bend up as far. He then pressed on my left shoulder blade for a bit until it hurt. The theory was that the muscle pair controlling the shoulder were not balanced. By pressing the trigger point it relaxed the too tight muscle. Sounds like a lot of musclephile phooey. But I didn't need the surgery after that and it has been 20+ years.

Now I did not have any actual damage, such as torn tissue or bits of whatever in the joint.

If you want to try the arm twisting thingy, the trigger points can be found on the web. All you have to add is someone with a strong finger.

Now before I was humoring a friend, since I have used trigger points to speed my rehab after a druggie ran his car head on into mine. The physical therapist I was using was familiar with the process. He named the muscles that needed to be treated. I looked up the points on the net. He was pleased to see my moving from a wheel chair on the first visit to walking in for the second one.

Best of luck to you.
