I'm on a late-night roll, folks... http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/artic.../29/international/i140948S30.DTL&type=bondage STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) -- While Swedes have a reputation of being reserved, a new study shows they'll hug just about anyone except their boss. Nine out of 10 Swedes embrace somebody at least once a week, with women aged 30-44 being the most active huggers, according to the study presented Thursday by the Swedish Red Cross. About 70 percent of the 1,036 people interviewed between Nov. 5-8 said they had hugged their partner or spouse that week, while 59 percent said they had hugged a friend or acquaintance. One-quarter had hugged a work colleague of the same sex, while 14 percent had embraced a co-worker of the opposite gender. Only 4 percent hugged their boss. The study by the Synovate polling institute also found that there is a certain etiquette to Swedish hugging traditions. More than 80 percent said it was appropriate to hug a person in mourning, while 55 percent said they would hug a stranger who had just found their wallet. Sixty percent said hugging a vague acquaintance at a party was not OK. I love how they'd sooner hug a stranger than a vague acquaintance.
