  1. I watched Fate / Zero, which I liked well enough. Currently watching the sequel, Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Bladeworks, and I'm a bit dissapointed at the lack of connection between the two shows. Many of the characters are the same, but they never really talk about what happened before, as if it never happened.
  2. I love using Jerusalem artichokes instead of potatoes sometimes. Last weekend I made a puree of some, as well as chips from what remained. Worked like a charm alongside duck breast and a red wine sauce. Doesn't look very delicate, and I should've reduced the sauce some more, but it tasted good!
  3. They're actually less popular than they used to be. They've seen up to 15% of the votes in earlier elections, now they're polled at around 8%. As far as "far right" parties go, they're kind of mild and hard to categorize. They attract the nationalist loonies though, that's for sure, and I wonder how they'll fare with if Sylvi Listhaug ( https://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-news-from-elsewhere-36102329 )becomes their new leader, which looks like it'll happen.
  4. We all pay taxes (I'm guessing). It's completely reasonable to expect something back. Hold your government accountable if it doesn't provide good services for the money you pay them. One thing I like that's started happening here in recent years is that food stores in cooperation with the government made a pledge/commitment to massively reduce food waste. So now all food stores have big discounts on stuff close to its expirey date. Would have loved that stuff back when I was a student.
  5. Their bread has also been ruled (in Ireland) not to be bread! https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/oct/01/irish-court-rules-subway-bread-is-not-bread
  6. It's quite sad how mediocre those films were.
  7. It's not really a double taxation, the same person doesn't pay it twice - being dead and all. From a reciever's point of view - everything you earn should be taxed. Including the money you earn from your dead family members. (Edit: I guess recieve is a better word than earn here. You don't really earn your inheritance money. All the more reason to tax it, imo).
  8. A few antifa "members" might have been there to document what's going on, or to stir the pot even. 99% of the ones who stormed the building however were Trump fanatics, there's little doubt about that.
  9. Kind of ironic that they at the same time want to limit the freedom of gay people. https://www.bbc.com/news/stories-54191344 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT-free_zone Europe's Alabama.
  10. Key point underlined. Breivik will spend the rest of his life in jail.
  11. The people will do what they're told. Trust in government and in experts is very high in Scandinavia. So the problem starts when the "expert" is wrong, like what happened in Sweden. When he tells people masks aren't necessary, people will listen to that. And when no one wears masks, no one wants to stand out in a crowd as one of the few who does so. As soon as masks became mandatory here in Norway (also too late, but way way quicker than in Sweden), everyone started wearing them immediately. Edit: I believe his reasoning was that there wasn't any science that indicates masks helps (there
  12. It has been an ongoing failure though. Look at Sweden's numbers compared to Norway and Denmark. Tegnell was a fool to doubt the effectiveness of masks, and the new requirements came way too late. https://www.statista.com/statistics/1113834/cumulative-coronavirus-deaths-in-the-nordics/
  13. Will be? They already are and have been for a long time. They'd be an economical powerhouse in Europe with or without Brexit.
  14. It wouldn't be a legal transaction under this new law. Lawmakers are in a very special position, special rules should apply. There's something very iffy about being able to buy stocks, when you have access to information that could largely affect the market days before it becomes public knowledge. If the ones who enrichened themselves due to inside information were actually seized and jailed, this would be a different story. But nothing seems to be done about it?
