grammargirl: (This will make a great livejournal entry)
I know it's bad form to post here for the first time in more than a month with a link, but this Vanity Fair article about the insanity that is Iceland is so awesome it needs to be shared with people outside my Google Reader contacts. I don't know what's better: the bit about the necessity of hiring people to ensure that Icelandic construction sites are elf-free, or the following assertion:

Because Iceland is really just one big family, it’s simply annoying to go around asking Icelanders if they’ve met Björk. Of course they’ve met Björk; who hasn’t met Björk? Who, for that matter, didn’t know Björk when she was two? “Yes, I know Björk,” a professor of finance at the University of Iceland says in reply to my question, in a weary tone. “She can’t sing, and I know her mother from childhood, and they were both crazy. That she is so well known outside of Iceland tells me more about the world than it does about Björk.”
 

Anyway, the whole thing is fantastic and you should all go read it immediately.
