My milk carton has a little piece of text on the back of it. It says:

Vår superkändisbiolog Linné, some levde på 1700-talet, trodde att vissa fåglar levade på botten av sjöar under vintern, för att ploppa upp framåt våren.

Let's see. Something vaguely like:

Our superstar biologist Linnaeus, who lived in the 18th century, thought that certain birds lived on the bottom of lakes during the winter, in order to plop back up in the spring.

I feel educated! By milk.

Also, I fondly imagine Swedish biologists sitting and staring at lakes as the ice begins to melt, looking hopeful.
