Dynamic culture? No offense, but I would suggest reading upon Norway again. Pretty much everything new, exciting or innovative simply gets banned here. I doubt you will find a less dynamic people in the western world. Coming home to Norway often feels like going 20+ years back in time.

^I find it odd, the Norwegian law that every car must have its headlights on even in broad day light when having your headlights on is obsolete and pointless. Cars their automatically turn the headlights on when started.

To be honest, that is something many countries elsewhere have started adopting too, so I guess we could be called rather innovative on that field. However I'm rather thinking about the poor assortments of groceries we have in our stores, the fact that they close so early and are closed on Sundays, our very conservative laws on alcohol, sex and cigarettes, low speed limits, generally little competition on many business fields and lots of other stuff many countries have tried to reform it away from.

Yeah Norwegian stores close very early compare to American stores, in Stavanger stores in sentrum would close at 5pm! Though bars and nightclubs are open pretty late past midnight, which is nice. About the speed limits I agree with you they should increase the speed limits.


Where in Norway are you from?

Really amazing scene here I waited for a break in the clouds so the sunshine could illuminate the skyline.
