| M'kay. You do the same, Nagster.

  Do you have a cheering bunch of similar idiots to yourself to back you up?
  The other lunatic from JPL said he received encouraging mail to keep up
  his self-annihilation.  I am very happy that you guys decide to destroy
  yourself and your credibility so completely.  Your goal is to provoke me,
  you said, and I must admit to some fascination with a person who is so
  unable to understand the consequences of his own statements as that.

| And I once thought that Norway was a civilized place.

  My God, you really /are/ retarded!  How could you possibly have come to
  such a staggeringly moronic conclusion?  Holy shit, dude.  What did you
  use to go so wrong?  Have you read about this country at all? We have an
  oil industry that has basically destroyed all other industries, we have a
  fishing industry that has been reduced to selling unprocessed fish to EU
  countries so we can buy back the processed fish from them, we have a
  prime minister who openly /sulks/ on national TV because he is made fun
  of by one of our most astute political comedians, we have a royalty that
  has decided that a loose woman who has a child with a criminal and who
  has been an avid drug user and a pathetic dandy of an "author" make for
  good royal marriage material, we are going to build a new opera house,
  but the politicians who want the building are not going to fund operas
  there, we have socialized medicine and long lines for essential surgery,
  we have a public school system that is clearly unable to educate people
  and school buildings that are falling apart, the public transportation in
  Oslo is losing more money by operating than if they shut down completely,
  we have the highest interest rate in Europe to keep all the money from
  stampeding out of the country, which is also killing out industry, we
  harbor terrorists and violent criminals from muslim countries, we let the
  Jugoslav mafia take over the street prostitution and narcotics in Oslo,
  and have more deaths from drug abuse per capita than any capitol in the
  world.  And you thought Norway was a civilized place?  Dude, where is
  your brain?  You must clearly be an astonishingly inept person, further
  evidence that JPL has gone the way of Bell Labs after the big scandals.

  But what other things do you associate with countries?  Do you have any
  similar associations based on race, too?  How about major religions?  Can
  you work with people from other countries or do they place you in teams
  where all the members wear flannel shirts and say "y'all" and "nucular"?

  Tell me more about yourself and your grave misconceptions of reality!  It
  is so fun to watch clueless people self-destruct while they think they
  run the show.
