Thanks to Sankt_Aslaug who sent me this quote:

"Dudo of St. Quentin records an encounter between a party of Danes and King Charles of the Frankish kingdom. In the presence of the king, the Danes were ordered to show their submission by kissing the foot of the king. The leader of the Danes refused. One of his followers complied. But, rather than kneeling to kiss the foot of King Charles, the Dane stood, grabbed the king’s foot, and lifted it up to the level of the Dane’s own head, dragging the king out of his seat and onto the floor. With the king held upside-down, the Dane kissed the foot.”


Iceland: “Loo up look up look up!”


No Problem



There’s plenty of good things about Christiania, but when it comes to drugs they suffer from a rather bad case of “pretending there is no problem”. 

It’s not unusual for Hells Angels members to beat up people who try to deal in Christiania without their permission, and sometimes it ends in murder.


Always watch your drink



To Europeans it seems weird and oddly suspicious at first that some American products boast that they contain real sugar, until we remember that Americans usually use corn syrup.
