Re: Questions For The World

Do you store your ketchup in the fridge or not? In Sweden (and the rest of the Nordic countries, if I'm to believe what the back of the ketchup bottle says) we store ketchup bottles in fridges, though I know when I lived in England no-one stored their ketchup in fridges, and I know that restaurants ...

No free sodas for designated drivers in Sweden, as far as I'm aware. People my age tend to just walk or use public transport to get home. Also I don't think we have the noun 'designated driver'; we just say 'you/I/they (will) drive' or 'who (will) drive(s)?' to indicate that.
