Talking From Canandian - Norwegian Moose Feud - to war

Earlier:

1984: City of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, erects the statue "Mac Moose", along the Trans Canada Highway
1984-2015: This the worlds biggest moose statue and rapidly becomes on of the most photographed attractions along the highway
2015: Storelvdal municipality, in our Great Eastern Valley, erects a moose statue i chrome/silver, overlooking National Highway 3, and quickly become a much photographed attraction along this road, connecting southern and middle parts of Norway. This is 12 inces taller than the Canadian one!
2018-12: Moose Jaw and Canada finds out about it and immediately starts getting jealous!
2019-01: Moose Jaw starts crowd founding campaign to enlarge their moose!
2019-01-25: Storelvdal and creator of the Norwegian statue checks the price of erection an even bigger moose, this time in gold.
2019-01-26: Elon Musk, the famous entrepreneur, who alllegedly wants to put a moose in space, goes out on Twitter supporting ...... Norway!

So now war has gone from ice cold to hot. The Norwegians initially had plans for peaceful negotiations and solve the conflict, but lately has come to the conclusion that the only way to negotiate is on neutral and moose free grounds, like in Greenland!

The Canadian reply to this is just that, blaaah, Canada is bigger than Norway anyway. Seems they lost it ...

Link (one of hundreds, even mentioned in China!): https://edition.cnn.com/travel/artic...ntl/index.html

The Ioniq connection: On my very first trip with my Ioniq, August 2017, we passed by the Norwegian one on our way home, stopped, photographed it and had moose meat for a meal at the nearby roadside restaurant, as we immediately got so hungry. And Musk makes the other car brand, you know.

I would have hoped that Musk has better things to do than idle Moose chit-chat - like making cars, rather than talking about making them and laying off several thousand workers.

Not a fan of any self-promoting oligarch when the products don't match the hype. His sense of personal responsibility seems inversely proportional to his ego... Look at the components used in the Tesla, and then price them independently - `someone` is either not telling the truth about his company and its profits, or else its so badly run that there's no way `someone` that incompetent should be in charge.
The latter seems likely to be the truth when his offered solution for the `Wild Boars` cave rescue was so pie-in-the-sky it bore more relation to a Gerry Anderson creation than real life. And now there's this, to all employees: https://www.inc.com/justin-bariso/el...-of-tesla.html

Looking forward to `Sir` James Dyson producing an electric car that also doesn't meet the hype so I can dislike him as much. His pathetic, overpriced, under-engineered vacuum cleaners are a triumph of marketing over function...

for non UK members who are not of advancing age, google "thunderbirds", "stingray", "joe 90" or "international rescue"

and you will find a kids program from the 60's / 70's with puppets using all sorts of strange machines of fantasy written / produce by Gerry Anderson

Probably over priced and over hyped . If the price is in line with his £400 for an average vaccuum cleaner , £300 for a Hair Dryer or Hair Curling Tongs , I don't think he'll move many cars .
And P.S. , I already have a healthy dislike of James Dyson

We Finns are very practical, so we concentrate in hunting, about 55000 moose every autumn.

God forbid we Brits start harping on about how the only good Moose is a dead moose... apart from getting in the way on the highway, they walk pissed (eating apples that ferment in their stomachs), they are so stupid they make a Dodo look vaguely intelligent and they serve no useful purpose to the ecosystem...

Ah wait, that's why they're a fave rave of Ego Musk !
