Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.
For the record the Icelandic police are probably the best police force in the world, There has only been one instance where an officer shot and killed a civilian in the entire history of the country (which is nearly a hundred years) and everyone was completely devastated by it, the police especially — because, as made clear in their statements after the incident, they understand their function is to protect the people. Not to mention that their general police go unarmed except for special squads.
Let’s run through some more facts while we’re on the subject: Compared to 31,000+ shooting deaths in the US in 2009, Iceland had… 4, because they have very rigorous screening processes for gun permits. There is very little economic disparity between upper, middle and lower classes, and social welfare programs take care of their people. Drug use affects less than 1% of the population between 15 and 65 years old, and 90% of drug-related court cases are settled with a fine rather than jail time. Violent crime is virtually non-existent. [x]
Iceland is like if you took the entire idea of chill and personified it as an country, and this exemplifies that.
Why does this picture look like Obama is Pharrell’s dad seeing him off for his Junior Prom?
is he not???
do not fall in love with people like me. i will take you to mansions, and satellites, and monuments, and kiss you in beautiful places, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like metal in your mouth. i will deflect a bullet into your back and take your sister with me. and when i leave you paralyzed on the beach you will finally understand, why i’m named after a giant magnet.
people who wear pants past 7 are not the kind of people i associate with
jesus christ i’m getting hate over this because people are putting the word ‘size’ in there when thats not what i was saying
AS IN THE FUCKING TIME
I thought you meant past age 7 and I was rly confused
I am SICK and TIRED of people objecting to seeing women using their breasts for what they are actually for. BREASTFEEDING IS NOT VULGAR OR OBSCENE.
I support breastfeeding all the way, even if it is in public.
And the award winning one:
Keira Knightley talking about her friendship with Benedict Cumberbatch. Elle magazine (July 2014) (British Edition)
when: not recently (2009 or before)
who: Mark Kermode (film critic)
- interview with Mark Kermode
”Has anyone reacted badly to your reviews?”
Mark Kermode: “Every now and then you get a small bit of comeback. An actor very gently punched me on air for saying something about Keira Knightley. I called her Ikea Knightley as her acting was so wooden.” (x)
- “He is also ferociously chivalrous, old-fashioned even. After BBC radio’s film reviewer Mark Kermode poked fun at Keira Knightley, Cumberbatch — her co-star in Atonement — punched the critic when they appeared together on air. Kermode was amazed, though he later insisted it was ‘a light tap on the arm’ and ‘playful’.”
