What would they want with Iceland? What would ANYONE want with Iceland?

It'll just be some old dude named Olaf with a flashlight and a walkie-talkie.

I travelled in Iceland this summer, and I have to say that it is the most beautiful place Ive ever been to, which includes Italy, all over North America, and Costa Rica. The people are amazing, the parties are fun, the landscape amazes every time you turn your head, and its quite possibly one of the best places to live out of ANY country in the world. That is what people would want with Iceland. Terrorists or whoever would want to posses Iceland because of its primo location between Europe and America (just like the Soviets and Americans during and after WWII).

Why don't they just get Sigurd to protect them?

Oh, yeah, cause Guttorm killed him, thanks to Gunnar and Hogi's enchantment.

/should've thought about that before killing the dragon slayer, shouldn't you've?

Gosling: What would they want with Iceland? What would ANYONE want with Iceland?

I'd post why, but I can't find anything SFW.

Maybe they're already there.... but if the public knew about it, it would diminish the whole 'secret' angle.
2006-02-24 01:48:38 AM  
Egregious Philbin - indeed.

iceland is fantasic. one of the nicest places to stay, especially when there are only 4 hours of daylight. missed the sun a few days (12pm - 4pm roughly).

I went mid summer, in Aukereyri, the sun set at 12:40, came back up 20 minutes later.

Iceland Population: 296,737

Seattle - Population: 563,374

For being such a tiny country they sure do make alot of noise internationally. It sounds like a great country I would like to visit some time!

I would go back to Reykjavik in a heartbeat.

Fantastic city, $9 beers notwithstanding.

just checked the thread to make sure there were at least a couple references to bjork and/or sigur ros.

thanks for being predictable, kids.

/saw sigur ros last night. one of the most incredible shows i've ever seen.

I went to school with some icelandic boys for a while. they were some of the most interesting, sexy, fun loving guys i've ever met. what they said about iceland was incredible. i really want to go.

Hey, all they need is one of the mall security guys from Smaralind, just outside Reykjavik. This is NOT 'shopped, it's the actual mall seen from the air. Some architect had a good laugh over this, I'm sure.

I'm leaving for Iceland in a few days. Staying for a week or so. Any tips on what I should do while I'm there?

Their best defense is being Iceland, isn't it?

How inbred are Icelanders, really? The gag was that there are only two kinds of Icelanders that don't look alike. Males and females. I think it would be freaky that your current hottie looks just like all your ex's.
2006-02-24 02:20:02 PM  
Iceland runs the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan. Do you think there might be just the slightest chance they could see some hint of a possibility that terrorism might involve them? Maybe?
2006-02-24 03:57:50 PM  
Fairly inbred, they have the tightest gene pool in the world from my understanding.
My father is Icelandic, but my mother is not.
2006-02-24 04:43:07 PM  
So much so, that many geneticists have dedicated their entire careers to studying how a relatively small population of Norwegians 1,000 years ago managed to succeed without much outside intermarriage.

I've been at this time of year, and it's still pretty darn cold (might get above freezing during the day...occasionally). With a week, you could do a lot, but I'd personally hike Mt. Esja (near Reyk.) and rent a car to drive up to the Western Fjords (town of Isafjordur and surroundings). The mainstream Reykjavik tourist stuff is pretty cool, too, like the Golden Circle tour of Thingvellir, Geysir, Gullfoss, etc. It's like $75 and they put you on a bus all day, lunch included (a relative bargain for Iceland).
