People rented hotel rooms 16 years in advance to see the total eclipse on the Faroe Islands, so the people who were too slow had to rent rooms with private people, which didn't come cheap. And to top it off, it was overcast on the day of the eclipse.

How the North works  I found this lying unfinished around on my computer, and because I’ve got no comic today you’ll have to do with this.   Being the Dane I am, I of course forgot the Sami People (the Nordic "Indians").  EDIT: Yes, Sweden got Norway later on, but that is not what the bottom picture is about. For many years the Nordics were separated in West-North and East-North. When Sweden got Norway that messed up the separation of West and East and marked Denmark’s decline from power.

A lot of British soldiers were stationed there, and got quite popular by behaving nicely and exchanging chocolate for lighters. They were so well liked the Faroese people often gave them food for free and invited them to dances. The Norwegian soldiers however made themselves unpopular by behaving less polite and taking lighters without giving anything in return. To this day some of the older generation on the islands still dislike Norwegians for this chocolate betrayal.

The facekini was invented as protection against the many jellyfish along the Chinese coast, but the women quickly learned that is was also excellent for not getting a tan. Light colored skin has traditionally been considered the prettiest in large parts of Asia, so the facekini was godsend for women who wanted to stay traditionally pretty while also enjoying trips to the beach.  Today facekinis are mostly used by the older generations. Younger Chinese people don't get the hoha about light…
