I know this is Norway we're talking about here, but Norway is steadfast on its way to becoming Sweden. Sad, considering its glorious Viking past.

Uhh it's one day of the week, Monday.  Reading is essential Subbmeister. So they are going 1/7th 'all vegetarian'. It's not a terrible thing exactly.

Also, it's "Echo Base."   Subby didn't do well in school, I'm guessing.

Meatless Monday sounds un-American to me. What's next? Wheatless Wednesdays?

My Graddaddy wouldn't have put up with that sort of crap when he was building B-24 Liberator bombers to beat Hitler.

That reminds me, you know who else was a vegetarian?

Its just one day of the week... whatever.

Going full vegetarian would be a huge mistake for a fighting force... protein and high density calories are extremely vital.  You can easily burn 7,000 calories a day while in the field.

So basically...on Mondays there is a large influx of eaters off base at the local eateries.    Those who don't,  buy some food on their own an prepare it for themselves in thier quarters.

I was unaware that the Norwegian Army wore ACUs, flew the American flag, and was a member of the 101st Airborne.

And I am pretty sure I see some meat.

Some entrepreneur is going to make a fortune with a meat restaurant outside of a military base.

Though I suspect the real reason this is being done is to skim funds.

Going way back, I knew an old guy who had been a college student after the Armenian genocide had come and gone after World War I.  His college dean decided to skim from the money the students had already paid for meals, by not feeding them one day a week, "for the starving Armenians", though no food or money ever went to Armenia, but into his pocket.

So the student dressed up as a seminary student, and went to the dean's house when he was out of town, giving the dean's wife a sob story about the poor, starving orphans.  She not only gave him a bunch of money, but several of the dean's chickens, which soon became student dinners.

When the dean returned, he was enraged and berated his wife for being stupid and gullible, and "to Hell with the orphans!"  Bad idea.  She lit into him with wifely wrath, and he had to run out of the house to avoid flying objects being thrown at him.

I've been eating vegetarian about half the time -- my office has a cafeteria with great vegetarian options.

If you have good options, not just the "oh, fine, just take whatever we have lying around the kitchen" or "the same stuff just subtract the meat" vegetarian options that I used to find elsewhere, it's really good, you don't miss the meat, you're not hungry in an hour (my main complaint when taking the veggie option in most other places)

I don't think I'd go 100% vegetarian but I jumped in, the water's fine.  And I found stuff I like that I wouldn't have known about otherwise.

Yeah, that would be nice since the show attempts to pass itself off as factual or semi-factual. What it does is that it reinforces idiotic stereotypes about a very complex and culturally-rich people. It's like how Americans' "knowledge" of Thor comes from the Marvel comics movies rather than the mythological Thor. It's nonsense.

That, and the entire reason there's an Angle-land is that the Angles moved there en masse from what's now Denmark...kinda hard to miss the people directly to your south that you trade with and whatnot picking up and moving after hearing about how rich and easy to take an island to the west is.

Precisely. But what this show does, outside of eye-candy, is perpetuate stereotypes that these people were stupid savages. You and I know better, but most folks, sadly, just assume what Hollywood tells them is fact when it comes to "historical" shows and movies.

As I was leaving Kalmar Slott one time, a young couple were headed in for a wedding.  The woman who was in 4 inch heels dropped a heel in between two deck boards.  The shoe was well strapped to her foot so she was stuck and her boyfriend just sat there saying "what do you want me to do?" Being the forward American that I am, I walked over, got down on my knees and eased her shoe out from where it was wedged in.  She was still audibly deriding him as they went into the castle.  Pretty sure he didn't get laid at that wedding.

/not sure if boyfriend was effeminate or just incompetent.
