Around 15 people, most of them Norwegians, were robbed at gunpoint as they played poker in Strömstad, Sweden last week.
A gang of four masked men armed with guns forced themselves inside Hogdal Bygdegård farm and robbed the poker team in the early hours of Friday morning, around 1.30am. The poker players were forced down onto the floor by the robbers.Head of police investigation in Strömstad, Tore Lomgård, told Swedish newspaper Bohusläningen: “It is quite obvious that the criminals knew the poker game was playing for money and they planned to rob it.” Nobody has been arrested in connection to the robbery yet.Playing poker with money is forbidden in Norway, but allowed in private parties in Sweden. The Norwegian government has proposed allowing poker games in private parties where there is a maximum pot up to 5,000 kroner ($800).

And somehow we're done with 2011 already. Last year I made one goal (getting this site to the top 50k in Alexa), and I didn't make any effort whatsoever to reach it, so at this point I'm giving up on yearly goals. But I will say this-- if SETT isn't rocking and rolling by this time next year, I'd better be a famous rapper.
I may be blind towards the future but hindsight is 20/20, so I'm going to a quick summary of the year.
