Friendship Bracelet

Friendship Bracelet

That big fancy bridge between Sweden and Denmark? One of the more hilarious parts about it's construction is that the Swedes started their part before the Danes has completely agreed to it, so suddenly the Danes had to hurry up if they wanted to meet the Swedes halfway. That's partly why the train connection between the countries is a bride on the Danish side but a tunnel on the Swedish side. It was quicker and cheaper to build a bridge.

You can however drive over the ocean all the way in a car.

EDIT: Oh would you look at that. I completely fucked up which side is a bridge and which side is a tunnel. Of well, yet ANOTHER unfortunately side effect of having a human do anything ever, especially one as stressed out as me right now. I hope you can one day find it in your hearts to forgive me for this grave mistake.

Danish media is very excited about Mads Mikkelsen being in Doctor Strange, but we all know nobody outside Denmark will remember his character because that's just how Marvel rolls.

I'm just impressed the Icelandic people came up with such a long process to remove poison.

The little voice in America's head

We have a lot of nut jobs in Europe too, the difference is that their range is limited so they only really fuck their own country up.

It's a common joke/wish in the rest of the world the everybody should be allowed to vote in American elections because everything America does has such huge consequences for the rest of the world.

In the eye of the beholder

In the eye of the beholder

The saga of the cave men and the European archaeologist continues.

But seriously, how many times have I seen articles by archaeologists talking about how something is supposed to symbolize a vagina, but it's just a hole in a wall.

I suspect archaeologists just see vaginas everywhere.

Space Attack!

Space Attack!

Early Russian space capsules had text on the outside telling people not to be afraid, it's just a human inside, because they feared people's reactions.

I promise I'm done with Nokia for now.

And if the whole Sweden/Denmark situations proves anything, it's that even old enemies can put their past behind them and become friends (but still make fun of each other A LOT)

We all know Finland is going to throw that piece of wood at Åland any moment now and it'll evolve into a good old fistfight.

Why not a gun/knife fight? Don't be silly. Deep down they don't want to murder each other.
