what countries best to apply for GPS-escape asylum?
Like the Dutch, Norwegians trust their governments  too much. It all dates back to European 60s naïveté. 

One time a Dutch person told me they had the best democracy in the world, even better than that of UK.

When we insiders know that Manx democracy is the best.
Have you ever met a Dutch person who told you that they weren't the best in something?

It looks like my tactical torch. I went out for a little walk and got lost that night. Sorry!
and this? upper left, zoom in on it, a flying tactical light?  This is Hessedalen, close to the old Viking capital

You Norwegians :) don't have a monopoly on lights, what, The Scots have them and I saw them in Akureyri.

The Irish are becoming very nostalgic, a bit sad, Here one of my old judo buddies (Iain) from Trinity College. His passion is to roam the streets of Dublin and scare tourists, especially Ukrainians.
As is well-known, Dublin was the Viking slave centre in the Europe. 12.5% tax.

You live on oil, so these can be some gases from under the surface. Or the passing by wyvern, which once stole my torch during the walk (but I can speak wywern and persuaded her to return it).

The Big Elk War Between Canada and Norway

Norway is now collecting money to a even bigger gold Elk. ( hemmm some memories from the old book comes to mind). Million dollar donations welcome, even in CAD I think 

"'Bigger than Brexit'


The transatlantic moose war is likely to escalate on Monday, "

The media coverage certainly does nothing to clear the confusion around the moose vs elk question.

I'm planning a trip to Oslo. So far I have the opera house and the Viking ship museum in my plans. Can you suggest any must-sees?
