Oslo now (at least when I last visited) reminds me of Amsterdam in the early 80s before the city introduced medical heroin therapy. It does improve addicts' life IMO. The addicts tend to congregate near the Central Station. Unfortunately, methadon is used as a surrogate which in a sense is even worse.
The government blocked Norwegian production off sports cars (Troll) in favor of fish. Without Troll sports cars, how can we be trendy? Most of us are obedient citizens, following government policy (in the last communist state?) !This Country Is Trying To Make Eating Whale Meat 'Trendy'

Each year, Norwegian hunters kill hundreds of minke whales with harpoons, allowing them to die slow, painful deaths. The reason for hunting them is to sell the whales’ meat, yet very few people in Norway choose to eat whale meat anymore. But instead of killing fewer whales, the Norwegian government is doing something controversial — it’s trying to make eating whale meat “trendy.”
Norway and Japan only left? ahh and Denmark still do !Even the Icelanders have stopped whale fishing AFAIK.
2018 "Iceland sets target of 191 kills as country resumes whaling"Even the Icelanders have stopped whale fishing AFAIK.
From HHGTG:"long-finned pilot whale neocortex has approximately 37.2 × 10^9 neurons, which is almost twice as many as humans"
Could they actually be smarter than humans, but not got so far technological due to lack of hands/fingers? Or too smart to develop polluting technology?
researchers claim not so, based on neuron density argument, but is it more than a hypothesis ?
