Oh, and in other news, apparently Iceland is now ruined and no longer the special wonderful place it used to be.
The real reason Iceland was a Better Country Than All Other Countries, is it had no mosquitoes.
It still doesn't...
But apparently now Iceland has biting midges, which are even more annoying (although less deadly, they don't spread Malaria).
We had a good run, but I guess we may as well just all move to Europe now.
@LeoKnepper No, Malaria isn't nearly everywhere the mosquitoes are. But since I was hyperbolically suggesting an insect might be worse than mosquitoes, the qualifier about deadly diseases felt kinda important...
I don't actually know how obnoxious the midges are, its a new development that the news is reporting on this summer.
