Picking and choosing


It's a very common reaction in the Nordic countries to just dismiss Iceland's place on lists because they are so few people. I was reminded of this when I overheard two people talk about this list and one of them said "We have more people in our capital than they have people in their whole country. Of course it's easy to keep a place like that safe". Sweden had much the same reaction when Iceland was higher up on the list than them regarding gender equality. It's just a way for the rest of the Nordic countries to bump ourselves further up positive lists.

I wonder if the situation is reversed in "Stand Still Stay Silent" -
Iceland is the most populous nation at 190,600, while Danes are just 12,400 folk isolated on Bornholm.

Yet again, Denmark has been spurned as the best Nordic.
First Happiness, now safety. And if not being the happiest made him depressed...
Logically, not being safe would turn him into an Anarcho-Monarchy.

The factors used to compile this report include: ... Military expenditures as a percentage of GDP.

In other words, worthless list (or maybe, not the list is worthless, but the name is misleading)

Canada is ranked 6th but has a higher population then the countries ranked 1 - 5.
Japan is ranked 9th but has a higher population then the countries ranked 1 - 8.

Behold the true titans of per capita safety.

When they made up that list, did they take active volcanoes into account?
