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.
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.
Even though Christoph Waltz had to drop out of playing Sigmund Freud for David Cronenberg, but in the historical film ‘Reyjkavik’, he’ll be donning the giant birthmark to play Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev opposite Michael Douglas, who will be playing Ronald Reagan.
Iceland: A beautiful island with beautiful women and everyone’s related
Iceland is a tiny country, isolated in the North Atlantic with a population of only about 300,000. 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.
A couple months ago, when Iceland announced it would be using the internet to crowdsource its new constitution, there were all sorts of jokes made about how the constitution would include things like a right to bacon and Rickrolling and whatnot. But now that the first draft is finished, amazingly, they’ve got a serious constitution on their hands.
Article 16: Tits or GTFO
Iceland is looking to completely re-write its constitution, and leave it to the more-modern-than-thou island nation to decide that it wants large amounts of internet input on the drafting of the document that will decide how the country runs.
Well it would be sort of disappointing if we ended the day with absolutely no natural disasters whatsoever, so I guess we should thank Iceland and the Grimsvotn volcano for… something. The volcano blew its top today, triggering 50 mini earthquakes on the island, which I don’t think is what was called for today, but it’s something.
