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.

Finland has some wonderful landscapes, which at first glance you'd think were aliens, or cocks.

It’s just microbial life but I’m sure it can carry a glock.

Old habits die hard

Old habits die hard

When most women got death sentences in the 1500’s and 1600’s for being witches in Norway, most Norwegian men got death sentences for incest. Isn’t history magical?

Masquerade

Masquerade

After my last comic so many Americans were like “The Scandinavian countries are so smart and we can’t even get Americans to wear masks” but the Scandinavian countries haven’t even suggested that people wear masks. All they’ve done is tell people to wear masks abroad because they otherwise risk getting a fine in countries where masks are mandatory.

Two birds in the hand?

Two birds in the hand?

In all fairness bee flies are pretty cute, but I’ve always been weirdly envious of the Americas having hummingbirds, so I had to laugh when someone told me bee flies are “our hummingbirds”
