The French saying “A bottle of alcohol is ugly in the hands of a woman” probably never existed here. Once I overheard a Norwegian who had just arrived in a party say “Oh damn I don’t know anyone here, I need to get drunk fast”.
That says it all: quite uncomfortable in any kind of social situation which doesn’t involve people they’ve known since kindergarden, alcohol gives most Norwegian the power to chat freely with strangers without any internal boundaries.
Wait a second I didn’t say Norwegians are promiscuous, not anywhere any time, but on a Friday or Saturday evening in bars, or in julebordet, or in after-ski parties: if you wait until alcohol level gets high enough, making-out and sex are likely to happen a lot.
Between colleagues, friends, people who’ve never met each other and haven’t exchanged a single word. Note that an alcohol-free version of Norwegian seduction is also possible, through internet dating.
And after that the Swedes beat Norway in almost everything from clothes to car-making and the Eurovision Song Contest. Norwegians still see themselves as a little brother, and no – Norway is not a city in Sweden. Norwegians like to tell stories of their exploits and how they fought bravely against the German occupation. If you come from the bar with 8 beers and your new friends finish them they will go to the bar one by one after your round – and won’t come back with a beer for you.

It actually means you have to explain to Norwegians that service is included when they visit your country. You also get TV tax, fuel tax, plastic bottle tax, sugar tax and probably oxygene tax (we don’t know, but are guessing here). They are were much like Norwegians except service-minded, smiling and very friendly to strangers. Norwegians are just sceptical, and impulsive as soon as they have thought things over.
Later that same evening, he is said to have found the girl unconscious from an overdose but failed to notify anyone about her condition.

I am not saying Norwegians are anti-social, of course when they win in the Winter Olympics or on 17th of May it’s another story.
The second thing you can expect from a drunk Norwegian is promiscuity often leading to sex.
