Green New Deal: "Air Travel Stops Becoming Necessary"
sandy ocasio, the socialist congresswoman
The mysterious case of AOC’s scrubbed 'Green New Deal' details

this is hilarious
sandy ocasio, the socialist congresswoman, proposed what she called a "green new deal," and posted an FAQ on her blog
One of her own advisors said the proposals were so absurd that it must be a hoax by the republicans
A policy adviser to Ocasio-Cortez, though, told Fox News Friday night that the claims were some kind of hoax perpetuated by Republicans.
The proposals were things like functionally banning air travel because we'll all be using high speed trains. How do we get to Europe/Japan/China/Australia you ask? Trains under the oceans?
It turns out the FAQ was genuine, but it's been taken down (they claim it was an early draft)
But it comes to something when your own advisors think your policies are so absurd they must be a hoax

I don't even know if it's correct. I just picked up a few words during my last trip.

Almost right! Nå i Oslo. But, if you want to refer to the street it would be: Nå på Karl Johan.

Come to think about it, that is a special case for that particular street, probably on account of its plaza or town square like nature. For another street nearly visible in the photo, it would be: Nå i Drammensveien.

The joy of prepositions! An, auf, hinter, in, neben, uber, unter, vor und zwischen...

That's not a lot. Do you have a phrasebok?

I know that I'm pathetic :-) I didn't have time to learn Norwegian, and haven't done much sightseeing anyway. Besides, everybody spoke English to me. I will do a basic crash course before going there on a hiking trip. The fjords and mountains look incredible: https://www.fjordnorway.com/things-to-d ... op-5-hikes
I fell in love with the views when I had do fly to Oslo (from London) through Stavenger because of some unexplained mix up with my further connected flights.

I did some Norwegian a while as preparation during winter sport. But all the people in the hotels are Swedes and Danes. 
Knowledge of Dutch and German helps, I find Icelandic easier.

I hate staying alone at hotels, they make me depressed. I rented a studio with own kitchen in Old Oslo. No interaction with Nordid, Proto-Nordid, Borreby, and all the rest of big and small blond people there.

"Why, what's the matter,
That you have such a February face,
So full of frost, of storm and cloudiness?"

The fundamental problems is that people don't learn Latin ... for verbs, they learn only present tense and for nouns the nominative.
