Dance With Me

Dance With Me

I was reading up on Danish folk dancing, and the description "partner swapping" came up a lot. So much so that it's not unusual for women to end up with women and men with men at some point during a dance.

Also, screaming in each other's faces. There's quite a bit of that.

Danish folk dancing isn't set in stone, so it has become very common to add a bit of Russian flare to make it more entertaining to watch.

All of this can be seen in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyJSA7-KHqg

But is in incredibly amusing to me how people on the internet are acting like it happened to the whole world and not just the US, what with various logos changing to rainbow colors and what not.

Never go hungry to bed

Never go hungry to bed

America just wants his friends to be well fed and happy. :(

I'll never forget the first time I went to an American restaurant. I had never seen so much food on one plate in my life, and it haunts me to this day.

The truth is out there

The truth is out there

There are a ton of alien species some people believe visit Earth, but these are the most popular.
The Reptilians, the Grays, and the Nordics.

I could talk forever about this, like the reptilians are usually considered the original inhabitants of Earth but are always lumped in with aliens. Also, they were invented by an American science fiction writer but were made popular in modern alien lore by an Englishman.

The Grays are an all American invention which is also why we see them most in fiction. The Americans make the most alien movies and shows.

Finally there's the Nordics, not to be confused with the actual Nordic people. They are called Nordics because they look like Nordic stereotypes and because they were originally only reported in the Nordic countries. They have since been replaced in Nordic UFO rapports with the Grays.

I used Norway to represent the Nordics here because he is pretty damn in love with himself and it's so rare that I get to show that part of his personality.

Mother's Day

Mother's Day

England celebrates Mothering Sunday two months before Canada, Australia, and America celebrate Mother's Day. This causes much confusion on the internet.

Dark Sun

Dark Sun

People rented hotel rooms 16 years in advance to see the total eclipse on the Faroe Islands, so the people who were too slow had to rent rooms with private people, which didn't come cheap. And to top it off, it was overcast on the day of the eclipse.
