Of course! I went to Kon Tiki, Fram, Folkemuseum, ... I only was afraid to go to the craft beer tasting trip, or wasn't I...
And I actually was in Drøbak!
Did you go to a karaoke bar with the Collector and sing Smells Like Teen Spirit?
No way! You did? :D (I hate Nirvana, but with Collector I would do this!)

The wife sang. I stood next to her spinning the microphone about to avoid singing. The compere didn't like that. I would not recommend it as a karaoke song!

I think "Come as you are" may be a bit more manageable, but I'm not a karaoke connoisseur.

If I’d had a chance to think ahead I might have gone with a Peter Sellers/Olivier/Hard Day’s Night/Richard III interpretation of Teen Spirit.

If I ever land in Guantanamo, I will admit blowing up anything they want if only they threaten with playing Nirvana to me. I'm not joking. The dude's sweater gives me a rash.

Good to know. But I guess this a sweater problem. Grungy sweaters were pretty much rash-causing from the beginning.

For what it's worth, I don't really do sweaters. I'm a shorts and T-shirt kind of guy. Of course, some times the weather conspires against me...

Approach your problem from the right end and begin with the answers. Then one day, perhaps you will find the final question..

Oslo is known as "the capital of one night stands". For the record, that's not why I regularly go there :-) (Work.)

Maybe JRM will bring back long division calculating in LSD. I miss the 50s.

That's because one night lasts for about six months.

I googled this and must admit, could not find much supporting evidence for a while. I found Sydney, Pattaya, Atlanta, Las Vegas, San Francisco, and San Antonio (!?). But then I finally tracked down the source at nettavisen.no. Which had a further reference to the customary weekend binge drinking thing (helgefylla), and that resonated with me.

"Helgefylla" sounds much better than "binge drinking", I have to say.
