    There are ten rules in the law as defined by Sandemose, all expressive of variations on a single theme and usually referred to as a homogeneous unit: You are not to think you're anyone special or that you're better than us.

    The ten rules state:

    You're not to think you are anything special.
    You're not to think you are as good as us.
    You're not to think you are smarter than us.
    You're not to convince yourself that you are better than us.
    You're not to think you know more than us.
    You're not to think you are more important than us.
    You're not to think you are good at anything.
    You're not to laugh at us.
    You're not to think anyone cares about you.
    You're not to think you can teach us anything.

    These ten principles or commandments are often claimed to form the "Jante's Shield" of the Scandinavian people.
    In the book, the Janters who transgress this unwritten 'law' are regarded with suspicion and some hostility, as it goes against the town's communal desire to preserve harmony, social stability and uniformity.

    An eleventh rule recognized in the novel as 'the penal code of Jante' is:
    Maybe you don't think I know a few things about you?

    Sandemose wrote about the working class in the town of Jante, a group of people of the same social position. He expressedly stated in later books that the social norms of Jante were universal and not intended to depict any particular town or country. Today, however, it is common in Scandinavia to claim the Law of Jante as something quintessentially Danish or Swedish (or slightly less often, Norwegian).
    Later, the meaning of The Law of Jante was extended to refer to those who want to break out of their social groups and reach a higher position in society in general
    In Sweden the 'Law' is often understood as having to do with economical achievement and social hierarchy (close to concepts such as humility and envy), while in Denmark, it may also be used to describe the negative attitude towards people who are culturally or socially standing out from the norm, but not necessarily more successful or higher-ranking.

    I got that Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis (DTaP) injection last July and ended up with Whooping cough from December through February, it was a good reminder as to why I never got shots since I was a kid.

    I think I have food poisoning [​IMG]
