  • I thought we had an old thread about our WORST SOUVERNIRS but I can't seem to locate it tonight....

    Anyway, there is a lot of truth to this.

      • Don't know where to put this one, so it goes in here.
        Monkeys hitched a ride from Malaysia to Rotterdam on a Container ship: http://gcaptain.com/monkeys-hitch-ri...Captain.com%29
        They were probably scared of flying with Malaysian Airlines??

        On a rig move with a 4-legged Jackup through the cross-over canal between Forcados and Escravos Rivers in Nigeria back in the mid 1980s we got a little close to one bank and a leg swiped into trees. When we got clear one pis*ed off monkey was hanging in a leg and made it's displeasure loudly known.
        It was eventually captured and returned to land on one of our supply vessels. (Whether it was returned to the jungle I do not know, monkey meat is popular in the Niger Delta)

        • Those monkeys must have been really hungry when they arrived at Rotterdam! I don't think there would be so much bananas growing on the container ship.

            • A fishy story:
              The recipe for longevity is obvious; live in cold deep water and swim slowly: http://bigstory.ap.org/article/44734...bout-400-years

              As an aside; Fishing boat from Sunnmore was targeting Greenland sharks in the Davis Strait back in the 1950s/60s: http://www.fiskeri.no/Reklame/Hakjer...20side%201.htm

              They only took the lever and dumped the body back, as the meat had no commercial value. They were sometime said to be swimming away with the guts trailing, after having it's belly slit open.

              It is only eaten in Iceland, after being fermented. Said to be one of the most revolting food anywhere: http://www.dagbladet.no/2016/02/15/t...isen/43158570/
              Has anybody here tried this Icelandic delicacy??

                  Yet another place I didn't get to soon enough. I'm afraid many spots in Norway are in the same boat judging by the number of cruise ships that call there.

                  I agree, pilotdane. Norway is already busy with huge cruise ships, and I do not doubt these monstrosities are excellent for the economy but what about the basic integrity of the country. Iceland is different - a country which has a long history of independence and relative isolation. Crowds in small towns in a regular basis. Then again I do not know what many Icelanders and Norwegians think about the masses of tourist ships in their ports.

              • Fidel Castro died yesterday. RIP.
                World leaders have sent their condolences: http://www.todayonline.com/world/lea...nsideTodaypage
                Most are polite and factual, with two exceptions. Maybe because they are not yet leaders, or don't know anything about diplomacy, common courtesy or manners?

                    As the coin is 100 kg, I think my pants pockets would have been quite full and my pants down at knee height.

                  • Another battle over crowed size is brewing between Trump and Obama.

                    Obama is back at the Brandenburger Tor in Berlin and drawing a huge crowed of admirers: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...ands-in-berlin

                    While Trump, who are in Brussels for a EU meeting and NATO Summit, is drawing a large crowed of protesters: http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/tru...elgium-n764231

                    Who are the winner is up for a toss.
