America of course has a tendency to make their own versions of foreign films, but they also edit foreign film covers and posters to make them look more aggressive because apparently Americans respond best to that sort of thing. I asked people how movies would be different if made ONLY for an American audience and I couldn't stop laughing at people's suggestions, especially those send in by Americans.

Similar Tastes

Similar Tastes

My former Faroese housemate moved back to the Faroe Islands some time ago and one day she sent me a photos of some weird horse shaped thing made of wires and filled with stones placed in the sea close to the airport. She was basically like "Look at this shit! Why they do that!?" I assume they were inspired by the creepy demon hose at the American airport?

Faroe Islands and Iceland are close friends because they have pretty similar cultures. What they call a fun night out the rest of us call a horror show.

Someone for Everyone

Someone for Everyone

There's this "loud obnoxious American tourist" stereotype. Obnoxious? Rarely. Loud? Yes, every time. A lot of Americans who come to Scandinavia comment on how silent it is, while the Scandinavians around them are thinking "It's not silent. You're just talking so loudly you can't hear the crowd around you"

Luckily for American's there's always the Icelandic people. This isn't a stereotype as such, but anyone who has lived next to Icelandic people know how loud they can be (and I have lived next to MANY), so it's no wonder that Americans tend to love them. Icelandic people also tend to be more "walk up and talk to people" types which fits the American culture quite nicely.

Iceland has the highest number of almost everything per capita because they're so few people. Now they'll have the highest number of people who qualified for the World Cup too.

How to break Iceland's spirit

How to break Iceland's spirit

Swedish food is...weird. Bad isn't even the right word. It's just the most bizarre combination of things you can imagine.

Oh, and pineapple on pizza is illegal in Iceland, but that fact isn't even half as weird Swedish food.

Edit: Apparently pineapple pizza isn't illegal, they've just talked about making it illegal. My point about Swedish food still stands though.

Please Norway, do not take this from us. Being the happiest country is all we got.

When they talked about this on the Danish news the reporter said "We've always seen Sweden as our nemesis, but maybe it's time to turn our attention to Norway"
