Haha, I was actually in Iceland in July. It was 8 degrees Celsius.

Andrew155: To be fair, a majority (50-70% depending on the source) of the power produced in Scandinavia is hydroelectric and as such has little impact on the environment (compare to 37% coal and 30% natural gas in the US), and if you've ever been in an icelandic winter you`d not begrudge them anything.

@bangolegs

Of course I picked what I wanted. I picked specific examples. It's a prime example of alot of @drawman`s postings as of late. Cherry pick a point, don`t bother to look up facts and proclaim it to be truth.

What I showed is that people should not make wacky assumptions on an entire country without sitting back and taking a good long look at their own. But that`s what a vast majority of the `peans on this site love to do for the troll factor.

"Do I contradict myself/
Very well then I contradict myself
(I am large, I contain multitudes).
As a bit of an Americaphile, I love this sort of thing - even if it is bollox in part. But how about 338 out of 853 Nobel Prize Laureates - don't often hear that one.

I drink all of my wine while driving my Ford Excursion SUV 500 miles each weekend to my 6000 square foot vacation home in the mountains. I need the room for my 2 teenage daughters and their 8 babies. The house has extra outlets to charge their iphones.
