The childish and somewhat touching qualities of the Swedish language

You English speaking humans call contemporary times just that. You call the past the past and the future the future.

Swedes don't.
We call contemporary times now-time. Past time is then-time. The future is ahead-time.
Nutid. Dåtid. Framtid.

can't get more contemporary than that.
