Police in Iceland shoot and kill a suspect for the first time in the nation’s history. Never forget.

In the US, police shooting and killing suspects happens every day, whether or not someone is a real threat or not. On Monday, police in Iceland had to find their one bullet in order to take out a man with a shotgun, probably all jacked up on fermented shark or something, and it was the first time any police force in the nation’s history have had to do so. I’m sure people in Iceland are shaking their heads wondering how their country could have slid so far to have this happen.

Iceland want to ban all internet porn. Good luck with that.

It’s bad enough that all strip clubs are banned in Soviet Iceland and now the country is talking about how it wants to ban all internet pornography, which would then make Scotland the closest place a guy could catch a glimpse of boob, and no one should have to go that far.

And now here’s the video of that drunk Icelandair passenger being duct-taped to his seat

If you liked the photo, you’ll love the video, which is like a whole bunch of photos shot in sequence and arranged to give the illusion of movement.

Icelandic guy gets drunk and rowdy on a flight, so the passengers taped him to his seat
On a flight from Reykjavik to New York, a passenger got totally shitfaced, attacked a female passenger and started screaming that the plane was going down. So his fellow passengers duct taped his dumb ass to his chair for the rest of the flight. TCB.

Did Matt Groening find inspiration for Homer Simpson in this old Icelandic comic?
This cartoon appeared in an Icelandic magazine in 1949. The similarities between the Icelandic cartoon character and Homer Simpson are striking, but there’s no telling if Groening ever saw it or not.

Morning music: Sigur Rós “Rembihnútur”

Sigur Rós is a fiery heart engine perpetually powering a trans-dimensional locomotive through a panoply of tones, carrying souls through vastly expanding dreamlike terrains. Within each song a bird is freed from it’s cage, to taking flight in a synaesthesia of feelings and emotions who varies in temperature from warm to cool. The music shares with life, something new and refreshing is always happening. Thanks!

So if you’re hooking up with someone in Iceland, the question isn’t if you’re related, but by how much. Fortunately, there’s a website that lets Icelanders know if they’re related to a boyfriend or girlfriend a little too closely.

Fire inside ice: Geyser in Iceland one second before eruption
This beautiful photo by Tatyana Kildisheva shows a surreal scene: gas apparently glowing inside water inside the Icelandic geyser Strokkur, just one second before it erupted. How did she do it? 

The process for timing the shot was very simple: just sit, wait, and have a good reaction to press the shutter button fast. I did not have my tripod and camera remote control with me.

Iceland’s new internet crowdsourced constitution reaches first draft without any trolling
