Everything is relative

Norwegian hospitals are free though. I was just surprised the first time I learned Norwegians pay at all to visit the doctor because I assumed we had the same system.

Fluffy bird

Fluffy bird

This year the long tailed bat won the vote for Bird of The Year in New Zealand. It’s meant to remind people that the bats are endangered and have every bit at much right to be protected and admired as birds.

A lot of Cinnamon

A lot of Cinnamon

A weird Danish tradition that always perplexes tourists. It’s not that we expect people to be married by 25, we just want to throw cinnamon at people. If you’re not married by 30 we up the torture by throwing pepper..

Admittedly, it’s probably only funny to me because I don’t have a car.

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!”

Alternative Ambassadors

Alternative Ambassadors

Pro tip for America: if you want a bit of political sway or just want to strengthen relations to Denmark, send your “alternative” ambassadors. For some reason Denmark is extremely receptive to that and always get overly excited.

It almost feels like a right of passage for Americans to make this joke when they visit Europe.

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.
