paradoxes-for-breakfast:

reasons why halloween is the best holiday:

  1. you are not obliged to visit your relatives
  2. you are not obliged to get gifts for anyone
  3. people will give you candy for absolutely no reason other than halloween
  4. its the only day when its socially acceptable to go out in public dressed like a penguin

Some serious truths here

Take me to a fun place

Today I was talking to an Icelandic colleague about languages, and asked her if Icelandic was closely related to other Scandinavian languages. She said that there are some traces of the early roots, but that Icelandic has heavily deviated from Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian.

As an example, she told me a story about a Swedish friend who visited Iceland. He asked his Icelandic hosts to take him to a roligt place, which in Swedish means “fun” or “entertaining”. Icelanders have a similar word, róleg, but it means “calm” (you can kind of see the common root here).

So when asked this, the Icelander took the Swede to a cemetery. The obvious explanation here would be assume something was lost in translation, but actually I think a better explanation is that Icelanders are simply more metal than Swedes.
