11 Math Problems That Look Simple But Are Not
written by Sam Greenspan

If Brain Teaser Tuesday was a thing, THIS would be great for Brain Teaser Tuesday. However, seeing as that is not a official thing (thanks for dragging your feet on that. OBAMA) — these are just 11 math brain teasers for any old Tuesday.

If you saw this list title and didn’t recoil in horror, prepare to have all sorts of nerd fun. If you saw this list title and did recoil in horror, there are approximately 600 other lists on this website that you’ll probably want to check out. Click here to go to a random one. And also, welcome to Costco, I love you.

Because I respect you, I did not include the answers to these questions anywhere. However, at the end, if you want to add up the total of your answers and tweet it to me, I’ll let you know if you’re right or wrong. And if you include all of your answers (like 20 + 5 + 177 + etc. ) then I’ll let you know how many you’re off.

(You can leave out the answer to the tennis problem, since there’s really no way to add that in. So just send the sum total of the 10 problems, and you can include the tennis answer separately.)

Get to it.

  1. Racks on racks on racks of squares in squares in squares.

And no, the border around the image does not count. One, it’s a non-square rectangle. And two, I’m not getting THAT tricky for problem number one.

This is a nice, agreeable equation with a definitive right answer. It’s here to ease you in to the other one-line equation later on this page that’s a K12-esque widow maker .

  • A tennis flash-in-the-pan (aka the Andy Roddick Dilemma).


    You have temporary magical powers that allow you to dominate the final at tennis’s U.S. Open (in a five-set match). But the powers will wear off at some point in the match. What’s the ideal score for the moment they wear off to give you the best shot at winning?

    And you don’t have the option to just throw your opponent your mom’s underhand softball pitch .


  • WikiAnswers – Why did Germany not invade Sweden in World War 2


    #wikianswers

    #

    During the invasion of Scandinavia, Sweden kept neutral, but because much of their income was generated by exporting iron, they continued to sell it to Nazi Germany. Sweden would not help Finland fight off the Soviet attack, but 8,000 Swedes volunteered for the Finnish army. Sensing the impending trouble, nearly everyone in the country pitched in to bolster the Swedish defense lines. The meager Swedish army nearly doubled overnight from volunteers and by war�s end tripled from that. Civilians built shelters, scanned the skies for enemy aircraft, donated time and money and made military vehicles and supplies. Germany told Sweden to stay neutral, but “pro-German,” meaning they would have to abide by Germany�s demands. The Swedes would not listen to Germany�s threats and told them if Sweden was invaded they would blow up the iron ore mines. Although Sweden was surrounded by chaotic war, its citizens led relatively normal lives. However, every Swedish family was affected by it because so many civilians were called into the military reserves.

    After Germany conquered Denmark and Norway they blockaded Sweden from the outside, forcing Sweden to deal exclusively with Germany. This imposed terrible food and supply shortages, but the resilient Swedes made the best out of a bad situation. They pushed their food production to the limit and used enormous amounts of timber for countless by-products. Censorship was rampant and anti-German and anti-Communist sentiments abounded, which was only compounded when Sweden�s King Gustav V let Germany move their troops across Swedish land. Hitler did not invade Sweden because he did not want to waste valuable troops in Scandinavia when he had other concerns. The Swedes proved their neutrality by not letting Germany use Swedish airspace: when the Germans flew over Sweden to attack Norway, the Swedes fired back with anti-aircraft guns. The Swedish reluctance to bend under German pressure infuriated Hitler, but he had more important things to worry about–the invasion of western Europe.

    Hitler did not invade Sweden because Sweden was traditonally a neutral country for over 200 years and Hitler did not want to bother Sweden when he already had Norway, a more strategically located nation.

    Germany was already receiving iron ore from Sweeden on a cash and carry basis. Germany also needed a neutral country as a conduit for goods and foreign currency, and a stage for negotiations and an outlet to the world. As bizarre as it sounds, some goods and materials were purchased by neutral 3rd countries from Allied nations (the US for example) and sold to the Germans via Sweeden.

    Why should they? The Swedes were willing to trade freely with Germany, offered no great strategic improvement to Germany should they be occupied, and had a military that was of no threat to any of its neighbors.

    Contrast this with Russia which had a highly aggressive and expansionist military and political system. Occupation of their territory was Germany’s PRIMARY goal in WWII. Also, Stalin, while willing at times to trade vital materials with Germany was extremely unreliable and would have cut off trade when he thought it would best leverage the Soviet position.

    Only nations that posed a threat to Germany, one way or the other, were attacked by the Germans. Despite popular mythology to the contrary, Germany was not on a rampage to take over the world in WWII. They were interested in improving their national security and sought to do this via military means.

    Because of its geographic location it was not strategically important, it had no vital resources they wanted to steal and since the Swedes are Nordics the Nazis did not want to eliminate them. Michael Montagne

    “since the Swedes are Nordics the Nazis did not want to eliminate them.”

    People being Nordic did not stop them invading Norway.

    Sweden actually did provide Germany with iron ore throughout most of the war. The Swedes were cooperative with the Germans (while they were still powerful) knowing full well they were at risk of invasion otherwise. As long as they cooperated the germans had no need to launch a costly invasion.

    The invasion of Norway was to: Protect the shipping route for Swedish iron from any Allied interdiction.

    Actually, this question should be in one of the top positions in questions asked. Sweden provided steel to the nazis, the even provided their railways to them when they invaded Norway. There are many documents on the net and documentaries aired on swedish state television regarding the “swedish-nazi” cooperation during WWII. It was not by chance that Sweden was Europes richest nation at the end of WWII. Today, pro-nazi sentiments still exist making Sweden the No.1 country in the world for self-declared nazis pro-capita. they even have their own political party which is allowed to exist despite WWII and despite present and on-going acts of violence and brutality towards non-native/immigrant individuals. Alot is hush-hush and very little is mentioned in the papers. racism is a problem which unfortunately is underplayed. To be factual..there race or neo-nazi related crimes in Stockholm everyday but they are often just reported for the “text-book” crimes that are committed and the fact that the individuals perpetrating these crimes are neo-nazis and in most of the cases are not first-time offenders is simply omitted.

    Im half Swedish and have been wondering about that question forever. Sweden did help Norway when they were invaded. They made a sort of underground resistance with Norway. If a German pilot crashed in Sweden then the Swedes would put him in jail, but if an Allied pilot crashed in Sweden they would let him walk about freely. My grandfather says he rembered seeing a few Allied pilots at some parties in Sweden. What I dont get is that why would Sweden help Norway and also provide the Nazis with iron because if they got caught things could go downhill very fast with the Germans.

    sweden had really bad with military units during this time but they played it smart. they took almost all of their units and walkt along the danish line so they germans sholud see thet they had many military (witch they didnt have) and when they had walkt along the line they walked like a D after they had walked with the line they walked back over the land and walked beside the line again :). and german got ALOT of iron from sweden and was afraid thet if they got bad with sweden they shold loose the war becaus they hadent enough iron to built weapons for.

    The reason Sweden wasnt invaded were because the germans needed their troops elsewhere.

    Germany had planned to attack Sweden several times during world war II, last time was in 1944 when they planned to shoot Vi and V2 rockets against Stockholm from Norway.

    As the swedish military grew and became stronger Sweden started to say no to German demands and cutting down on the iron ore export.

    If – To be or not to be – is the question,


    #question answer

    Shakespeare chose to be.

    Let’s go back to the original text, Shakespeare’s Hamlet. He is highly intellectual, emotionally sensitive, and extremely distraught by his father’s death and his uncle marrying his mother. In this speech, knife in hand, he is contemplating suicide. “To be” means to stay alive and take action. “Not to be” means suicide, right here, right now. And it specifically means not suicide or sacrifice to make a point (martyrdom), but cowardly suicide to avoid the issue.

    Hamlet chooses to be, to stay alive and take action. The tragic result is that both the evildoers (his uncle the fratricide and regicide, in particular) and also the good, including Hamlet and his innocent beloved Ophelia, die. But that tragic result is better than what would have happened if Hamlet had killed himself, which would have been horrific. Horror is worse than tragedy. Horror is when the good dies, and evil wins and lives.

    So, in tragic circumstances, the answer is, “to be.” To put it crassly, stand up for what is right. If you die, you can take the bad guys with you when you go.

    And what if life is a comedy? Then “to be” is definitely better. You will end up happily married, and the bad guys will get the boot.

    So, consistently throughout Shakespeare’s work, whether he presented life as tragedy, comedy, or romance, the choice of suicide was not the right choice. I’ll go with the Bard: Whatever life brings our way, our choice is to be, and to face the evils of the world and do our best.

    yes,your question has got two answers within-built in;and which i opt is the real question? right?

    Though “‘to be “‘is the truth,the reality,and the origin and your expected answer as well, there can be situations at times “not to be” should be an answer.

    Hamlett was turboiled to conclude it -”to be OR not to be” at a particular junction in that play…

    Therewere occasions when we ask ourselves-what is the answer;i have to be or not ?

    Without any concern of any situation,if asked ,to be or not to be ,THERE IS JUST ONE ANSWERE and that is TO BE.

    In life, many times i had to keep “not to be” as a policy infront of negativities just showed up at times.

    so that can be, as well, if considering situations,circumstances, occasions,and ettiquette

    After speaking his ponderous soliloquy Hamlet decided to be since not to be would have ended the play. He answered his rhetorical question and left the world wondering about what he said for ages to come.

    Science has limits: A few things that science does not do #economic


    #science answer

    #

    Science is powerful. It has generated the knowledge that allows us to call a friend halfway around the world with a cell phone, vaccinate a baby against polio, build a skyscraper, and drive a car. And science helps us answer important questions like which areas might be hit by a tsunami after an earthquake, how did the hole in the ozone layer form, how can we protect our crops from pests, and who were our evolutionary ancestors? With such breadth, the reach of science might seem to be endless, but it is not. Science has definite limits.

    Science doesn’t make moral judgments
    When is euthanasia the right thing to do? What universal rights should humans have? Should other animals have rights? Questions like these are important, but scientific research will not answer them. Science can help us learn about terminal illnesses and the history of human and animal rights and that knowledge can inform our opinions and decisions. But ultimately, individual people must make moral judgments. Science helps us describe how the world is. but it cannot make any judgments about whether that state of affairs is right, wrong, good, or bad.

    Science doesn’t make aesthetic judgments
    Science can reveal the frequency of a G-flat and how our eyes relay information about color to our brains, but science cannot tell us whether a Beethoven symphony, a Kabuki performance, or a Jackson Pollock painting is beautiful or dreadful. Individuals make those decisions for themselves based on their own aesthetic criteria.

    Science doesn’t tell you how to use scientific knowledge
    Although scientists often care deeply about how their discoveries are used, science itself doesn’t indicate what should be done with scientific knowledge. Science, for example, can tell you how to recombine DNA in new ways, but it doesn’t specify whether you should use that knowledge to correct a genetic disease, develop a bruise-resistant apple, or construct a new bacterium. For almost any important scientific advance, one can imagine both positive and negative ways that knowledge could be used. Again, science helps us describe how the world is. and then we have to decide how to use that knowledge.

    Getting Nonprofit Status

    The Fender Music Foundation requires all of its grant recipients to be nonprofit organizations. If your organization is not a nonprofit yet, read this article to learn more about the process.

    What is a nonprofit organization?

    A Non Profit organization (NPO) is a business entity where making a profit is not a primary mission. Typically, Non Profits are engaged in charitable, educational, religious, or artistic activities of public or private interest. Since Non Profit organizations cannot distribute profit to their directors, officers, or members (those who participate in the management of the Non Profit) any income generated by the Non Profit must ultimately go back into the organization. However, Non Profits can hire and pay staff to carry out operational and administrative functions.

    If you choose to incorporate your Non Profit as a 501(c) corporation, you can choose from 26 types 501(c)(1) to 501(c)(26). Section 501(c)(3) is the most common federal tax exemption for Non Profits, which exempts the Non Profit from taxes on income directly related to the organization s mission. Therefore, many Non Profits are often referred to as 501(c)(3) corporations. Refer to IRS.gov to learn more about other types of 501(c) incorporation.

    How do I start a nonprofit organization?

    Many of us have a keen interest in doing something. However, reality is that we are busy with other things and that funding might be difficult to come by. Don t let that discourage you from doing something. Just make sure you have invested time on the front end to determine the level of interest and availability of funds for your cause. Doing so can help you better understand whether a new organization is needed.

    Here are five alternatives to starting a new organization:

    1. Join an existing effort — Study the list of nonprofits already active in the same subject and geographic area and join their efforts as a volunteer, a board member or even as staff.
    2. Create a special program of an existing effort — Analyze the list of nonprofits already active in the same area, identify the three most compatible with your ideas, and meet with them to explore creating a special project or initiative and negotiate your involvement. You may have ideas that they would welcome, including resources that may be available to finance the new undertaking. Your activity could be a sponsored project with a level of independence, but without the need for separate books, government reporting and boards and committees.
    3. Start a local chapter of a national or regional organization — Explore the list of national organizations in the subject area of your interest, and see if a local chapter is needed in your geographic area.
    4. Maintain an informal organization — This is a viable option for groups with annual revenues under $25,000 with no employees. If your effort will be quite local and small, consider forming an unincorporated association or club have meetings and activities but skip the ongoing reporting requirements. Informal organizations can operate as a nonprofit, however, donations to an informal organization are not tax-deductible.
      However, those that choose to remain informal may undertake risk to board members and founders by not incorporating the organization. By incorporating, the organization becomes a legal entity and can only be liable for the assets of the organization. An incident involving an unincorporated organization may put personal assets of board members, volunteers, or others, at risk.
    5. Find a fiscal sponsor for your organization — If you are considering creation of a group to finance activities or needs of others, plan to work on a limited-time project, or want to test a program idea first, exploring fiscal sponsorship. Fiscal sponsorship, sometimes referred to as fiscal agency, is a way to receive tax-deductible contributions by using the tax-exempt status of another organization as an umbrella.

    Fiscal sponsors often provide more than the use of their tax-exempt status. They often co-locate, provide accounting and administrative services, and strategic planning guidance. The sponsored organization will pay a fee to the sponsor for their services, generally around 10 percent of the organization s revenues.

    Fiscal sponsorship is a complex, individualized process. Organizations considering working with a sponsor should first identify several possible sponsors with missions in sync with that of the new organization. Work with each of these organizations to find the best fit in terms of missions, working style, and location. Will the sponsorship be structured to re-grant monies to the new organization? Will the sponsored organization purchase services from its sponsor? At what cost? How will both be assured against tax fraud. It is recommended that both parties consult with legal professionals to ensure their interests are being met in the sponsorship agreement.

    With not much in Mickey Rooney’s estate, fight possible over his remains

    Story highlights

    • Rooney’s lawyer doubts a deal can be reached out of court on where he’ll be buried
    • Rooney’s wife is the only person with authority to claim his body, her lawyer says
    • A hearing is set for Friday to decide who controls remains
    • Rooney left his estate to stepson Mark Rooney

    Actor Mickey Rooney did not want to be buried in a cemetery plot he bought years ago, before splitting with his wife, his lawyer said Wednesday.

    Rooney, who died of natural causes at age 93 on Sunday, also did not want his stepson Chris Aber to attend his funeral, attorney Michael Augustine said.

    Rooney’s wishes are the basis for a looming court fight over who controls the legendary actor’s remains and makes funeral and burial decisions, Augustine said.

    While Rooney disinherited his children, his wife and all but one of her children in a will he signed just weeks before his death, court papers suggest there is not much in his estate to fight over. His personal property is valued at just $18,000 despite an unmatched 90-year film career.

    Augustine, who served as Rooney’s conservator, said in a court filing that he believed Rooney’s estranged wife, Jan Rooney, and her son, Christopher Aber, would attempt to remove Rooney’s body from Forest Lawn Memorial Park’s mortuary.

    Remembering Hollywood star Mickey Rooney 02:18

    A Los Angeles judge signed a handwritten order Tuesday preventing anyone from removing Rooney’s remains until he holds a hearing on Friday. Augustine, who is named as estate executor in the will, is asking for that authority.

    Attorney Yevgeny Belous, who works with lawyer Mitchell Karasov to represent Jan Rooney, said she is the only person with authority to make the decisions.

    Lawyers for both sides are “working toward the mutual goal of honoring Mickey,” perhaps with an agreement on funeral and burial arrangements, before Friday’s hearing, Belous said. “We want Mickey to have a proper ceremony,” he said. “We don’t want to drag this into a fight.”

    Rooney already purchased burial plots in a cemetery in the Westlake Village area of Los Angeles County. In fact, Rooney’s mother was moved there years ago so the family would be together, Belous said.

    Augustine said Rooney told him shortly before his death that he no longer wanted to be buried in the plot he purchased 15 years earlier. “Substantial intervening events” in the years since changed his wishes, but Rooney’s lack of cash prevented him from purchasing a new burial plot, he said.

    Rooney expressed a desire to be interred at either a veteran’s cemetery or a Hollywood cemetery with other stars. Hollywood Forever, the final resting place for Rudolph Valentino, Cecil B. DeMille and a long list of long gone show biz A-listers, is one possibility, Augustine said.

    Augustine said he doubts a deal can be made before the judge imposes a decision, since he is demanding that Aber be banned from the funeral because of Mickey Rooney’s severe dislike for the stepson who previously managed him.

    Rooney won a $2.8 million judgment against Aber in a lawsuit that included accusations of elder abuse. Aber has yet to pay the judgment, Augustine said.

    Jan Rooney signed an agreement waiving all claims to her husband’s estate after the couple separated in June 2012 after 34 years of marriage, according to a court filing. She will benefit from Rooney’s Social Security and other pensions totaling $8,400 a month, Augustine said.

    While Rooney was the highest paid actor in Hollywood 70 years ago, his personal property totaled just $18,000, according to documents accompanying his will.

    The will signed by Rooney on March 11, 2014, left the entire estate to stepson Mark Rooney, one of Jan Rooney’s sons, who was the actor’s caretaker the last two years of his life.

    Rooney “intentionally omitted” and disinherited his eight surviving biological children and two other stepchildren from his last marriage, the will said.

    Rooney had no negative feelings toward his surviving children, but they were all financially better off than he was, Augustine said. He believed what little he had to leave should go to Mark Rooney and his wife, because they had been taking good care of him in the final two years, Augustine said.

    None of the others “ever changed one of Mickey’s Depends,” Augustine said.

    A probate hearing is scheduled for May 12 to start the process of probating the actor’s will.

    3. There is a registry setting or policy in place that has changed the default limits.

    The solution to this problem will depend on which of the scenarios above is affecting the Outlook data file in question. Here is how to find that out:

    Determining The Type of Outlook Data File

    1. With Outlook closed, go to Start- Control Panel- Mail
    2. Click Data Files
    3. Double-click the data file in question.
    4. If the Microsoft Exchange window appears, than the file is an .ost. Click the Advanced tab. At the bottom of the window will be a message declaring the Mailbox Mode as either Unicode or non-Unicode. Take note of which mode it indicates.
    5. If the Personal Folders window appears, than the file is a .pst. Look for the box labeled Format: . If the value of that box is Personal Folders File (97-2002) , then the file is ANSI. If the value is simply Personal Folders File then it is Unicode. Take note of which it is.

    Locating the Outlook Data File

    1. Make sure that Hidden Files are not hidden. To do this, in any Explorer window go to Tools- Folder Options then click the View tab and select the radio button for Show hidden files In Windows 7, if there is no menu bar with a Tools option, try hitting the ALT key to make it appear.
    2. In Windows 2K/XP, the default location will be C:\Documents and Settings\-your-username-here\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\
    3. In Windows Vista/7, the default location will be C:\Users\-your-username-here\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\
    4. If Outlook is being used with an Exchange server, there will be one or more .ost files in this folder. Otherwise, there will be one or more .pst files.
    5. Check to see if the size of the .pst or .ost file currently used by Outlook is approaching the limit set by the file type that was discovered in step 5 above. For example, if the file is ANSI the limit is just shy of 2Gb, if Unicode the limit is just shy of 50Gb. If the file is ANSI and the version of Outlook is 2003 or newer, the file can be converted to Unicode by following the steps below. If the file is Unicode and is hitting the limit, steps must be taken to shrink the .pst or .ost file such as archiving old items or deleting unnecessary items.

    Converting an ANSI-encoded .pst file to UNICODE

    1. Create a new Outlook profile with a new, empty .pst file. If Outlook is newer than 2003, the new .pst file will be Unicode by default.
    2. Import the old .pst file into the new one.

    Converting an ANSI-encoded .ost file to Unicode

    1. Disable Cached Exchange Mode
    2. Rename the .ost file in question to outlook.old
    3. Open Outlook, then close it.
    4. Re-enable Cached Exchange Mode
    5. Outlook should now rebuild the .ost file in a Unicode format with data from the Exchange server. Depending on the size of the mailbox this could take a while.

    File is Already the Correct Type and Is not Approaching the Above Limits

    If this message is popping up even though the .pst or .ost file is not approaching the limit appropriate for its encoding, there may be custom policies or registry keys changing the default MaxFileSize and MaxLargeFileSize attributes. Check out this MS KB article on the subject that includes paths to the keys for different versions of Outlook as well as information on group policy setting that can affect Outlook data file enoding: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/832925

    MS Outlook is the most popular useful email client, but many users regularly phase some issues with this application due to some reason such as:

    1. The outlook is too sluggish
    2. Outlook crashes unexpectedly
    3. Network Connection
    4. Outlook PST has corrupted
    5. Virus attacks
    6. Increase PST file size

    If the similar errors occur, a PST file is damaged and such incident makes it difficult to repair them. I also try Inbox Repair tool, but it didn t work. After doing too much analysis of the few 3rd party software, I selected Kernel for Outlook PST repair. This Software successfully repaired the Corrupted/damaged/broken.PST file and save it in their new Outlook PST file format.

    WikiAnswers – Why did Germany not invade Sweden in World War 2


    #wikianswers

    #

    During the invasion of Scandinavia, Sweden kept neutral, but because much of their income was generated by exporting iron, they continued to sell it to Nazi Germany. Sweden would not help Finland fight off the Soviet attack, but 8,000 Swedes volunteered for the Finnish army. Sensing the impending trouble, nearly everyone in the country pitched in to bolster the Swedish defense lines. The meager Swedish army nearly doubled overnight from volunteers and by war�s end tripled from that. Civilians built shelters, scanned the skies for enemy aircraft, donated time and money and made military vehicles and supplies. Germany told Sweden to stay neutral, but “pro-German,” meaning they would have to abide by Germany�s demands. The Swedes would not listen to Germany�s threats and told them if Sweden was invaded they would blow up the iron ore mines. Although Sweden was surrounded by chaotic war, its citizens led relatively normal lives. However, every Swedish family was affected by it because so many civilians were called into the military reserves.

    After Germany conquered Denmark and Norway they blockaded Sweden from the outside, forcing Sweden to deal exclusively with Germany. This imposed terrible food and supply shortages, but the resilient Swedes made the best out of a bad situation. They pushed their food production to the limit and used enormous amounts of timber for countless by-products. Censorship was rampant and anti-German and anti-Communist sentiments abounded, which was only compounded when Sweden�s King Gustav V let Germany move their troops across Swedish land. Hitler did not invade Sweden because he did not want to waste valuable troops in Scandinavia when he had other concerns. The Swedes proved their neutrality by not letting Germany use Swedish airspace: when the Germans flew over Sweden to attack Norway, the Swedes fired back with anti-aircraft guns. The Swedish reluctance to bend under German pressure infuriated Hitler, but he had more important things to worry about–the invasion of western Europe.

    Hitler did not invade Sweden because Sweden was traditonally a neutral country for over 200 years and Hitler did not want to bother Sweden when he already had Norway, a more strategically located nation.

    Germany was already receiving iron ore from Sweeden on a cash and carry basis. Germany also needed a neutral country as a conduit for goods and foreign currency, and a stage for negotiations and an outlet to the world. As bizarre as it sounds, some goods and materials were purchased by neutral 3rd countries from Allied nations (the US for example) and sold to the Germans via Sweeden.

    Why should they? The Swedes were willing to trade freely with Germany, offered no great strategic improvement to Germany should they be occupied, and had a military that was of no threat to any of its neighbors.

    Contrast this with Russia which had a highly aggressive and expansionist military and political system. Occupation of their territory was Germany’s PRIMARY goal in WWII. Also, Stalin, while willing at times to trade vital materials with Germany was extremely unreliable and would have cut off trade when he thought it would best leverage the Soviet position.

    Only nations that posed a threat to Germany, one way or the other, were attacked by the Germans. Despite popular mythology to the contrary, Germany was not on a rampage to take over the world in WWII. They were interested in improving their national security and sought to do this via military means.

    Because of its geographic location it was not strategically important, it had no vital resources they wanted to steal and since the Swedes are Nordics the Nazis did not want to eliminate them. Michael Montagne

    “since the Swedes are Nordics the Nazis did not want to eliminate them.”

    People being Nordic did not stop them invading Norway.

    Sweden actually did provide Germany with iron ore throughout most of the war. The Swedes were cooperative with the Germans (while they were still powerful) knowing full well they were at risk of invasion otherwise. As long as they cooperated the germans had no need to launch a costly invasion.

    The invasion of Norway was to: Protect the shipping route for Swedish iron from any Allied interdiction.

    Actually, this question should be in one of the top positions in questions asked. Sweden provided steel to the nazis, the even provided their railways to them when they invaded Norway. There are many documents on the net and documentaries aired on swedish state television regarding the “swedish-nazi” cooperation during WWII. It was not by chance that Sweden was Europes richest nation at the end of WWII. Today, pro-nazi sentiments still exist making Sweden the No.1 country in the world for self-declared nazis pro-capita. they even have their own political party which is allowed to exist despite WWII and despite present and on-going acts of violence and brutality towards non-native/immigrant individuals. Alot is hush-hush and very little is mentioned in the papers. racism is a problem which unfortunately is underplayed. To be factual..there race or neo-nazi related crimes in Stockholm everyday but they are often just reported for the “text-book” crimes that are committed and the fact that the individuals perpetrating these crimes are neo-nazis and in most of the cases are not first-time offenders is simply omitted.

    Im half Swedish and have been wondering about that question forever. Sweden did help Norway when they were invaded. They made a sort of underground resistance with Norway. If a German pilot crashed in Sweden then the Swedes would put him in jail, but if an Allied pilot crashed in Sweden they would let him walk about freely. My grandfather says he rembered seeing a few Allied pilots at some parties in Sweden. What I dont get is that why would Sweden help Norway and also provide the Nazis with iron because if they got caught things could go downhill very fast with the Germans.

    sweden had really bad with military units during this time but they played it smart. they took almost all of their units and walkt along the danish line so they germans sholud see thet they had many military (witch they didnt have) and when they had walkt along the line they walked like a D after they had walked with the line they walked back over the land and walked beside the line again :). and german got ALOT of iron from sweden and was afraid thet if they got bad with sweden they shold loose the war becaus they hadent enough iron to built weapons for.

    The reason Sweden wasnt invaded were because the germans needed their troops elsewhere.

    Germany had planned to attack Sweden several times during world war II, last time was in 1944 when they planned to shoot Vi and V2 rockets against Stockholm from Norway.

    As the swedish military grew and became stronger Sweden started to say no to German demands and cutting down on the iron ore export.
