Did they remove ass from the screenshot lmao

[-] [email protected] 66 points 1 month ago

Oh no swearing on the internet we must censor .

[-] Holyhandgrenade 27 points 1 month ago

It never made any sense to me that ass is a swear word. It means either a body part or a donkey, neither of which are particularly offensive unless the donkey is performing conservative stand-up comedy.

[-] [email protected] 12 points 1 month ago

Aren't most swear words have a normal meaning just swearified? Like: poo - shit

[-] [email protected] 29 points 1 month ago

Don't worry I'll add it back when I send it to my meme chats

[-] [email protected] 17 points 1 month ago

A swear word? On the internet?! Scandalous!

[-] [email protected] 13 points 1 month ago

Blink-182 said it best;

"Shit piss fuck cunt cocksucker motherfucker tits fart turd and twat"

Moving words to be sure

The American mind cannot even comprehend a border between 3 countries being so open.

[-] NewNewAccount 22 points 1 month ago

Hey we've got Four Corners!

[-] nosey33 24 points 1 month ago

Isn't that between 4 states though? Rather than 4 countries lol still super cool though

[-] Zehzin 33 points 1 month ago

Don't worry I'm sure they'll come up with tight immigration between states eventually

[-] einlander 12 points 1 month ago

Just speed run getting a felony, grab a kid and run around 4 corners to get the kidnapping over state lines achievement.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 1 month ago

Have you seen the difference in laws between US states!?

[-] NewNewAccount 3 points 1 month ago

Yeah, but relatively large states with a combined population of nearly 20m.

[-] Wild_Mastic 5 points 1 month ago

It's the Google map travel distance thing all over again

Which is on an indian reservation, and requires an entrance fee to go look at it.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

Is that new? I definitely didn't pay to go to it- a little over 10 years ago

[-] SmoothLiquidation 3 points 1 month ago

I went through there last summer. It was a total tourist trap.

There are 48 in Europe of those tripoints, seven of them with Germany.

[-] Sir_Fridge 11 points 1 month ago

The one with Belgium and the Netherlands has a park around it with a large maze, a watchtower and playgrounds.

[-] Wizard_Pope 7 points 1 month ago

I just noticed the map at the end is missing the tripoint Italy-Slovenia-Austria

[-] [email protected] 39 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

three nations did not want to lose their soverign rights to equal thirds of this small lake. what is in the lake.

[-] [email protected] 55 points 1 month ago
[-] [email protected] 14 points 1 month ago

I'd say maybe some kind of life forms too

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

And some rocks

[-] Rolando 3 points 1 month ago

They should put some strange women distributing swords, as a basis for their system of government.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

A moist bint lobbing scimitars at people in the middle of jänkhä? Sign me up.

[-] [email protected] 14 points 1 month ago

The lake is actually ~99% on Norwegian territory, it's just a tiny edge on the end that's given to Sweden and Finland. We once tried to give Finland a mountain peak though (for their 100th anniversary of independence from Russia), but the constitution states the kingdom is indivisible so the legal work was deemed too much. It would have been their highest peak if it went through.

[-] [email protected] 12 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

Nothing is out there! All there is is a lake and birds and fish. ... And a wooden walkway. ... And a big ass cement block. But there's nothing else there. It's a complete void. The environment is perfectly safe!

[-] ladicius 3 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

And mosquitos, supposedly. A lot of mosquitos.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

And the front that fell off.

[-] [email protected] 10 points 1 month ago

Just made for a good border-point, really.

This is all imagined though as I refuse to recognize the sovereignty of Finland and Norway - long live the Great Swedish Empire

This is what is possible when humans put aside our differences and work together!

[-] [email protected] 12 points 1 month ago

Humans are weird. (And delightful!)

[-] Somethingcheezie 11 points 1 month ago

They really did!

[-] [email protected] 9 points 1 month ago

If you slip, fall and hit your head and loose conciousness during that, in a way such that you are lying exactly on the border between two or three nations, to which hospital will you be brought? And how are insurances going to deal with this?

[-] [email protected] 15 points 1 month ago

Seems like a non-issue to me. You'll go to whichever hospital is closest. If you're resident in one of the countries you'll be in EU/EEA and get the usual healthcare for residents of whichever country the hospital is in, if you're non-EU it'll depend on what travel insurance you have.

No worries, any of these three countries will take you without quibbling over who pays what.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago

Isn't it supposed to be a pile of rocks there? (Treriksröset) Or is it this block that is that's named Treriksröset? But a "röse" is supposed to be a like of rocks?

[-] chellomere 2 points 1 month ago

Yes, this is how Treriksröset looks nowadays, someone decided to put a big-ass clump of concrete there.

[-] Semi_Hemi_Demigod 3 points 1 month ago

It would be awesome if it was a big monument to peace and cooperation

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

From which side can you access it? Which nation owns the corner?

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

exact point is probably empty. so much of matter is just empty space.
