Oslo’s ugliest metro station is called Stortinget since it’s right underneath Stortinget (the Parliament). Recently there have been these big campaigns aimed towards travelers that you should let people off the metro/tram/bus/anything to make room before you try to pry into a packed carriage yourself. Still, people (usually elderly ladies as far as I’m concerned) don’t understand this basic concept and force themselves in. I don’t even feel bad pushing them back if I’m getting off somewhere and they try to do this shit.
Today was a big rally outside the Norwegian Parliament about trying to stop the fur industry. This has been a thing for many years, but the government is too pussy to do something about it. While fur farmers are probably mostly nice people, saying that you’ll lose your job and income if it gets banned is not a good argument to continue the fur farming. “But how will I make money?” Man the fuck up, you probably have more skills than just slaughtering innocent animals, and you’ll probably get subsidized in the beginning while you reinvent yourself. Just because something is a tradition doesn’t mean it should be.
