Something is rotten in the state of Denmark?

RIP shoppers

And the Danes will likely actually do something to prevent future ones rather than thoughts and prayers.

Denmark has malls?

When they have a sale, is it a Denmarkdown?

Mass shootings happen in other countries, they're just so rare that they're major national news, vs. the US where there's multiple/DAY, and unless someone shoots up an elementary school or causes an unusually large body count, it barely even registers.

As an american that speaks two and is working on a third I must disagree.

The shooter however is likely influenced by our exported media and internet. Likely far right wing white supremicist stuff the GQP loves touting.

Does that mean he's ethnically Danish but not from the country? Or is this the Danish version of not saying "person of color"?

It's a "nedskrivning".

Sorry. Ever been in that kinda bad mood where you're not up for real conversation, but maybe some text interactions with other people, and need a distraction, and go to Fark? This is that.

Anyway, for whatever reason that Danish word made me think of this Ned:

There are plenty of countries which have frequent mass shootings which never make the news.

But for some reason, Americans like to pretend we're better than them. Or that they don't exist.

There are about 70 million Americans who would disagree with you.

At least 20% of the US is bilingual.

the 2018 American Community Survey found that a bit more than sixty-seven million inhabitants spoke a language other than English at home. Among those people, some sixty-three million also knew and used English and hence were bilingual. This represents 20.55 percent of the population.

The actual number is likely quite a bit higher, depending on what level of fluency you require. Those were just people who didn't primarily speak English at home.

Maybe that's true where you come from in Wisconsin, but the Latinx population in the U.S. is steadily growing and most of the kids of those immigrants still teach their kids Spanish. Meaning 1st and 2nd gen kids born here are usually bilingual. Same goes for lots of other immigrant populations, because we're a nation of immigrants.

We often don't respect that, but nonetheless, if you went to a public high school and any university, a second language is required. The majority of Americans go for Spanish because all of our nation neighbors (aside from Canada) speak that foreign language. They're the people we're most likely to encounter, so it gets taught the most.

Feel free to compare the us to countries that can be accurately be described as "active war zones" to explain why is the prevalence of mass shootings in the US is not unique.

CSB: I was reading the requirements for entry into a PhD physics program from the 1970s, and they required at least reading comprehension in both German and Russian, as that's where the majority of non-English publications came from. They eventually dropped any 2nd language requirement, because few Americans were eligible. If they could speak/read German or Russian, a top-tier school would give them a free ride, or the government would hire them as analysts and the degree wasn't needed for that. Analysts might have a Master's degree, but if they didn't understand something, they would talk with the PhDs on retainer.

The USA dumbs down its curriculum and makes the student pay, while other countries raise standards, and those who qualify get a free ride.

It's a wonder our schools turn out any kids able to compete in a global market. US companies just exploit the H-1B visa system to get the brain power they need.

Denmark has some of the strictest gun laws in Europe. https://www.bustle.com/articles/64394-what-are-gun-laws-in-denmark-like-theyre-pretty-well-regulated

Maybe they could make guns double illegal, I guess. I bet that would scare the mass shooters into submission.
