held!

anonymous asked:

So, would it be possible to hold long complicated legal cases while nude in the sauna? Cause that sounds like a pretty sweet weekend.

well apperntly to swedish politicans the answer to this is yes.

like here, in 1977, while having a offical state visit from Mozambique’s President between 1975 -1986, Samora Machel.

talking about options to stay out of the cold war with the leader of a recently Independent nation? Have that discussion in the Sauna!

(they are most likely discussing the topic of option to keep out of the cold war during that state visit. swedish politicans back then had the idea that forging alliances with the states that were getting free from colonial rule, would protect both sweden and the countries we allied with against the influence of both Soviet and USA in the cold war. the idea were with hindsight, mostly a failure. but that were the idea anyway. so that why the are using a sauna togheter up there).

this was the easist example I could find on the web, but like, do swedish politican ever sauna ALOT through history, and make important agreements while doing so. and they are mostly, like in the example, in someones summer house.

this custom has btw been critized as a way to hold the female parliementarians outside important political descisions, because the male politicans can then always say: “but we just did not invite you, because we did not believe you wanted to be nude with us! Not because we wanted to exlude you!”

i have vague memories of this being such a topic back in like… the early 2000s.

furthermore! sometimes, they actually do not make the REAL decision in the sauna itself, but saying so to swedish journalists makes a good story, which the journalists LOVE and i really mean LOVE to repeat non-stop.

so! too answer your question

yes you can hold complicated legal cases while nude in sauna. swedish politicans appear to do just that all the time. perhaps though, i would not rec to have it has the very foundation of the parliementarian work. this can lead to complaints.

Sauna just the right amount while doing politics!

@tea-sims​ when I had my wisdom teeth out I was so stoned on whatever they gave me so I’d fall asleep that when I woke up I was dead set on getting a smoothie but I couldn’t explain it so I asked for a pen and paper to write it out and it ended up making everyone think I was asking for a chicken. I just wanted a smoothie. Nobody believed me. :( drink yo smoothie, for me, please.

it has been DONE!!!!! tho i’m not really out of it from the anaesthesia, it was just like having a really good nap and tbh i’m just sleepy so i might just……………go to sleep again tbh

ok but at the start, they seriously told us with visuals who would pilot the lions, other than their designated pilots………………….

pidge and hunk are the only ones for green and yellow….

we don’t see a mini blue lion or learn anything about what it looks for in a paladin because lance interrupts, but we only get shots of allura and lance while the blue lion is being discussed….. allura goes on to pilot blue.

the red lion is in between keith and lance…. lance pilots red at the current time. this makes the shot of the black lion and who is shown with it very intriguing….

shiro is there, of course… then keith, his head completely in the frame. he’s now piloting black. then — barely there but there, nonetheless — there’s lance.

Imagine Bill letting it slip that you are dating during an interview.

“So here we also have a photo of-” Jimmy paused, taking a look at the screen, just like Bill, and the entire audience that went crazy and started cheering and clapping the moment they saw you.

Bill himself chuckled as he took in the sight of you looking stunning as ever in your red dress, standing on your tiptoes even if you were wearing high heels to kiss his cheek; one hand on his chest and the other on your shoulder as he had an arm wrapped around your waist and the other cupping your cheek. 

He didn’t even know how they had managed to snap that photo because it wasn’t exactly in front of the cameras. You had mostly been standing on the side with his brothers, and great friends of yours, and he had rushed to you to get that good luck kiss. He didn’t expect there to be evidence of that so he was glad he’d kept himself from kissing you properly on the lips.

“(Y/n) and you.” he completed with a smile, glancing for a moment at the enthusiastic audience “You two-” he turned back to the actor “You two are great friends right? I’m- I’m just asking because that could, you know, be misinterpreted by some.” he motioned to the photo, giving a look at the audience and everybody laughed at that.
