Imagine how insane it would be to see a banana sticker saying "from Iceland"

Is Iceland really that weird? I mean, all I ever hear are weird and some cool facts. Yes there are many gorgeous people, and yes, they have a Phallological Museum. Seriously, what's up?

Oh, and while normally "power from magma" isn't literal, geothermal power is just power from hot rock... Iceland is the only place on world that actually *does* produce power from magma. They accidentally drilled into a magma chamber near Krafla - the magma backed up a couple dozen meters into their well. Instead of sealing it off (which is what was done in Hawaii, the only other time humans have struck magma), they decided "what the heck!" and tried producing power from it... and it's worked quite well, they're actually looking to do it again on purpose. :)
