Happy cute Yule

Happy cute Yule

I’ve been blamed for only focusing on scary and weird Christmas traditions. Well, for once Christmas falls on a Friday so I thought I’d celebrate by posting the most obnoxiously cute Yuletide picture.

We are in a very hateing relationship

We are in a very hateing relationship

Based on several stories I’ve heard from Swedes. Danes love to make fun of Swedes and Swedes love to make fun of Danes, but Icelandic people also love to make fun of Danes. Several Swedes have described hanging out with Icelandic people as “First it was fun to make fun of Danes together but eventually it started to annoy me and I thought NO! STOP! We hate Danes more than you! It’s not funny anymore!”

Too top to be gay

Too top to be gay

One way to avoid serving in the Turkish army is to be gay, but only if you’re a bottom. For a while they demanded photographic evidence but these days they only do a psychological evaluation.

Superhero movies got nothing on Danish cinema

Superhero movies got nothing on Danish cinema

You thought Marvel movies were all the same? Then you haven’t seen modern Danish cinema. Not saying it was a bad movie that shouldn’t have won, just that it’s unclear why this particular movie won instead of all the other movies like it.

A very snowy hill

A very snowy hill

We’ve had a fair few snowstorms in Denmark in the past month, especially where I live, and the staggering amount of people who still chose to bike to work is insane.

Bikes are a very standard mode of transportation here, and many only have a bike (me included), instead opting for busses and trains for longer travels (A lot of people who own cars even choose to take the bus to work because it’s cheaper and they don’t have to find a parking spot). BUT taking the bike made no sense in this weather because you had to walk most of the way anyway. I should know because I was one of the fools who stubbornly chose my bike every day despite the fact that it added FIVE HOURS to my travel time compared to if I had just taken the bus. We are all creatures of habit I suppose.

Can he do tricks?

Can he do tricks?

It was so common for vikings to keep bears as pets that they were known as house bears. They were often allowed to just walk around like dogs, causing so much damage it eventually became illegal to keep bears in Iceland. Some royals were even crazy enough to keep polar bears.
