Spin that Wheel

Malmö Ferris Wheel decided to be sold!

This ferris wheel has newly been sold and will be shipped away. When built a few years ago it was proclaimed the tallest in “Northern Europe”. This is very typical Sweden. Inventing new categories and labels just to be able to say the “tallest one”. No one even knows what “Northern Europe” means in this context. It is clear that UK is not included since the London Eye is several times taller. It probably doesn´t include Germany either, because I would be surprised if there is not a taller one there. To be honest when looking at it, I even think the ferris wheel at Tivoli in Copenhagen is taller, and that is 25 minutes away with train.

In all sincerity, a proper definition of Northern Europe, would be decide on a middle or center, and then proclaim everything north but still in Europe as Northern Europe. This is often said to be the north 49th degree latitude, which cuts through Paris. There is definitely something amusing in how this country strive to be bigger, taller and better than it is. If you can´t beat them, just change the rules or the label. And who said size matters anyways.
