    Well they used to rely on fishing and wool industry, and had to import almost everything. Their economy was very closely tied to the US from which imported much. I'm totally familiar with today, as this was about 30 years ago. I assume it is similar. I know they are experts at geothermal energy technology and I think they sell that too.

    Here is a photo of Iceland Moss on the volcanic ash.

    Oh, this is true. They're a kick-ass people and it's a kick-ass country. They just really, really, really screwed up when the privatized and deregulated their banks and let greedy people kill their nation.

    I hated to see them go from the happiest nation on earth (I would think not easy to do when the sun doesn't rise for a long time); to a near third-world nation.

    They'll make it back out, I'm sure. They're creative if nothing else and they produce great cinema and music. They could do more of that, and I'd happily help them out buy buying tickets and downloading songs.

    they should start exporting Asdis Ran clones, people would buy her for millions of dollars each
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Holy crap.

    This is what I was talking about. Long, long ago, the Vikings kept raiding the mainland and stealing all the beautiful women.

    It paid off.
