Star Invaders

Star Invaders

Usually there's so much light pollution in big cities that people can't see the stars at night, so when they experience major power failures and suddenly see the Milky Way for the first time they have no idea what it is. In the US people even tend to call the police on the Milky Way.

Old news, but my favourite comment on the story was by an American who said exactly that.

They did their best

They did their best

This was suggested by a woman working in the US military. She noticed that a lot of people who hate participation trophies in the US are against removing confederate statues. Make of that what you want.

Cupcake Tragedy

Cupcake Tragedy

A fair few Danish people responded to Trish Regans comments on Denmark, and I noticed that not a single one of them could find a proper cupcake to use in their video. They were all like "Damn you Trish! Why must you remind me that I can't get a cupcake anywhere!?"

Free Greenland

Free Greenland

Some time ago it was very fashionable to fight for Tibet, but China was like a rock, so shortly thereafter people suddenly started yelling the same slogans but about Greenland and people felt a bit confused. Let's just say the modern day situation between Denmark and Greenland is different than China/Tibet. They have home rule, meaning they pretty much function as a independent country, and they get huge sums of money from Denmark to keep the country running and get it back on it's feed after all the abuse they suffered under Denmark. If they become fully independent they'd lose the money, so for now they choose to stay part of Denmark until they figure something better out. They vote on whether they want to become independent every so often, but so far it has always been a no. But worry not, it will happen some day.

I was asked if I ever noticed how small and squiggly-lined the states in the East are compared to the huge mostly straight-lined states in the rest of the country.
