    I just learned that Iceland's land mass is 25% larger than Ireland.

    did not know that.

    That is all.

    A friend just had a "girls" vacation there and loved it. Lots of old buildings that looked like they were dropped in from old London.

    They've been working on a hydrogen powered transportation system, but I think there have been a few bumps along the road. That's all I got.

    Good work keeping geography alive !
    It’s never to late to learn anything.

    A good portion of my generation don’t know all the states in their own country let alone about the rest of the world.

    I just thought it was common sense to know about the planet on which you live ;)

    Shouldn't be any problem providing cubes for the whiskey, then.

    Yes, but there are more Irish in Ireland. If “ire” is anger, isn’t Ireland “Angerland”? And if you added an “N” in front of “Iceland”, you’d have Niceland. If you changed the “R” in Ireland to a “C”, you have Iceland. Just sayin’.

    The Vikings took many Irish girls as slaves back in the day.

    So there is plenty of mitochondrial Irish in the Icelandic DNA.

    It’s bitcoin central now too with the ample low cost, geothermal power offsetting the ridiculous cost of mining cryptocurrency.

    They spend more energy on it than they spend on supporting the population’s needs.

    I'd love to do the Njal's Saga tour in Iceland, and also to revisit Ireland. It's been 34 years.

    I thought that the Vikings only got to the east coast of Britain, didn’t know about the Irish bit. Learnt some geography and history today.

    There's more to the Vikings in Ireland than you'd think.


    https://www.vikingeskibsmuseet.dk/e...kings-in-the-west/ireland/the-city-of-dublin/

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_of_Dublin

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Clontarf

    They also settled in France, becoming Normans, besides ranging into Mediterranean countries and eastern Europe and the Middle East.

    I didn’t know that either.
    I’m feeling slightly smarter now.
    Thanks!
