On the premises or off?
Presumably the 1 hour would include travel time.
A Swedish municipality may allow its workers to get on the job while on the clock, for an hour each week. This idea comes to the world thanks to Per-Erik Muskos, a councillor in the Swedish district of Övertorneå, which is a whisker to the south of the Arctic Circle and home to under 2,000 people. As it happens, your …
Some people can manage that easily...
RIMMER: Yvonne McGruder. A single, brief liason with the ship's female boxing champion. March the sixteenth, seven thirty one PM to seven forty three PM.
RIMMER: Twelve minutes.
RIMMER: And that includes the time it took to eat the pizza.
I'd give it a go, with <name withheld> from Finance. Why she works for our company and around old lechers like me I have no idea.
However, there's a slight problem, that if I'm being paid to partake in a bit of pokey, then that makes me a prostitute, and in the UK that's (I think) still illegal. Would HM Government sue themselves for pimping me?
This Swedish municipality wants to increase birth rate, but at the same time the Swedish government restricts access to alcohol...
Don't they know that over 92% of all pregnancies involve alcohol consumption? ^^
Are they hoping for
a) an increased population due to a increased birth rate,
b) an influx of migratory persons looking for an hour of paid nookie, or
"B" would probably be the better idea, there's enough countries with overpopulation problems they should be able to bring in enough to fill in the needed places. Besides, "A" presumes 1: heterosexual couples and 2: no birth control used.
".....a) an increased population due to a increased birth rate....." Which begs the question; have the normally uber-liberal Swedes forgotten about The Gays? Surely, in line with the usual equality mantra, they will still be allowed to have their daily hour of paid "exercise" even though there is zero chance of non-hetero sex actually producing any pregnancies?

The midges get more voracious the further north you go in Finno-Scandinavia from about May. The Arctic tundra is their ideal breeding environment - but even as far south as Turku you learn to avoid shady places near water. They die off by about the third week in July - so you can enjoy a couple of months without listening for their high pitched whine. Holiday cottages often have white interior walls - and the red splashes mark where a midge met its end after its last meal.
It's not you know. Our ex-PM Tony Abbot (aka The Mad Monk) became distraught when he though that if sex was work, then it would be a sin to indulge on the Sabbath. So he asked his priest: "Is sex work?"
The priest gave the matter some thought and eventually confessed that he didn't know. "Why not ask my Anglican counterpart next door?"
So Tony went to the Anglican church and made his request there. "Is sex work?" he asked wistfully. The Anglican priest gave the matter some thought and eventually he too confessed that he didn't know. "Why don't you go to the synagogue and ask the rabbi; he'll know for sure.
So Tony wended his way to the synagogue and asked the rabbi: "Is sex work?"
The rabbi stroked his beard and thought for about two or three seconds. Then he said: "If sex was work my wife would have the servant do it for her."
I work from home and can say that the odd shag during working hours has a positive affect on me. It would be better if it was official and I didn't have to keep checking my email every 15 mins, nothing kills the mood more than a request to deploy the latest build or update my Jira issues.
Anon for reasons of not wanting to be sacked.
For Sweden to increase their population they would have to revoke all sex education - and substitute "just say no". Then they would also have to withdraw the general health service - and allow employers to refuse to fund birth control through health insurance schemes if it goes against their religion's dogma.
To see it in action - all they have to do is get out the popcorn and watch the Country of Trumpia over the next few years.
An autonomous drone carrying a defibrillator helped save a 71-year-old man having a heart attack, a first in medical history, a Swedish search-and-rescue tech company has claimed.
We're told the old boy was clearing snow from his driveway in Trollhättan, Sweden, on the morning of December 9 before he was struck by crippling pains in his chest. A doctor just happened to be driving by on his way to work, saw what was happening, stopped, got out, and told an onlooker to call the emergency services while he performed CPR on the unnamed heart-attack victim.
Apparently, it took just over three minutes for a drone, built and operated by Askim-based Everdrone, to be dispatched and arrive carrying an automated external defibrillator (AED). The doctor, named as Mustafa Ali by Everdrone, used the equipment to keep the guy alive at least until an ambulance arrived. The victim is said to have fully recovered in hospital.
Some traditions ought to be set on fire, but sadly for Sweden's Gävlebocken – a giant Yule goat made of straw – setting fire to traditions has become a tradition in itself.
After five arson-free Christmases, the goat succumbed in the early hours of 17 December and a man in his 40s was arrested, Reuters reports, despite efforts by the city of Gävle to develop a flame-retardant idol.
The goat was first erected in the town square in December 1966. It burned down on New Year's Eve thus beginning a glorious (and illegal) tradition. Gävlebocken has since been engulfed by flames at least 35 times.
