  •  I was thinking the same (6+ / 0-)

    thing until I remembered I get really cold when it's 60 in L.A.

    What is the ratio of tall, well-endowed men to women in Iceland?

      And yes, this diary does make Iceland sound like paradise on earth. Which is the only planet I have to judge things by, so Iceland must be wonderful!


      When the government wants to keep something secret, assume the protected information would either embarrass officials or outrage people -- or both.

    •  Iceland is surprisingly warm, at least in winter (2+ / 0-)

      But it would still be cold by LA standards, and it never really heats up in summer, either.  

    •  Slightly higher ratio of men to women. (2+ / 0-)

      Not an anomalous ratio, though, it's still pretty close to 50-50.  I imagine it's shifted in favor of males to the degree it is because of people who came looking for jobs in the construction and fishing industries.

      Here in Reykjavík, the average January temperature is just a touch below freezing.  The average July temperature is like 60 or so, maybe a little less.  Things have of late been a couple degrees F higher than "average", though, year after year; the arctic is warming pretty quickly.
