It's not as if they need the money.

sadly, it looks like Norway banned the hunting of polar bears in 1973, under the Multilateral Conservation of Polar Bears Agreement done at Oslo November 15, 1973 except for scientific research

Interesting!

So bats, flying insects, and underground creatures are not under mankind's rule.

Moreover, the image is imperfect unless mankind is also omniscient, omnipotent, and immortal. (Or does this god look like a corpse for 99.999999% of it's existence?)

Amusingly, in singling Norway out as a preferred source of migrants, Trump seems ignorant of the great truth that underpins all migration – you head where the security and opportunities lie.

On the WHO rankings of the world’s best healthcare systems, Norway ranks 12 – the US ranks 37. As of 2016, Norway is first on the UN’s Human Development Index – the US is at number ten. If Trump believes that Norwegians are going to want to take a hit to their standard of living, he’s more delusional than we thought.

Bloomberg had a story today about the actual numbers, I think for 2016: about 500 Norwegian immigrants to the US vs about 800 American immigrants to Norway.

The population of Norway is tiny. I think I know most of them.
