As I'm sure you all know, while Denmark no longer owns Sweden, Norway and Iceland, it is still one of the larger countries in the world, due to its ownership of Greenland (which is three times the size of Texas - just to give an idea of scale).

Apparently, Denmark is NOW trying to see if they can claim the area around (and including) the North Pole - and the rights to any raw materials found there in the future. It seems that Danish scientists are trying to establish that the continental shelf under Greenland extends to (or is connected to) the North Pole area, which would allow Denmark to legally claim it.


Hahahahahaha - our plan of global dominion is slowly taking shape. Once we have the north pole, I'm sure we'll build some diabolical device to stop the earth spinning on it's axis or something (flinging everyone off into space) unless the world pays us ONE MILLION DOLLARS

(Actually, I'm not sure I really see why anyone would care who "owns" the North Pole. even if there were resources there, like natural gas or oil, I'd imaigne it would be prohibitively expensive to extract)

I'm not sure the technical word was "plate" - the article was in danish, and the world used woudl directly translate to "conntinental base" (as in the base of a column) - so maybe it's more technical that just being part of the same plate.

Apparently it's some technical issue related to how things are connected underwater, but I'm too stupid to understand it . Probably some obscure legal/technical point anyway.

Hell, give em' the north pole.

As long as they bring those tasty little butter cookies with them, they can have Canada for all I care.

What does Greenland have, about 85 people on it?

At least that many Americans (only U.S. base on Danish soil)

During the cold war, there were rumors in Denmark that we allowed the U.S. to put ICBM launch sites in Greenland, but the government has never admitted it. It sure would be an ideal place to launch from against the Soviet Union.

I suppose "technically" everyplace is connected to everyplace via plates or Foundations as they put it, Besides Im sure they would'nt include you in the diabolical plans simply because of your Damn Red Commie leanings. You have been banned by the Danes! Which is damn funny if you think about it.
P.S. I thought you were Sweedish anyway.

Beware the beast man Dane, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him, for he is the harbinger of death.



You damned dirty Danes!

I heard William Tell is the father of Denmark; shot the eye out of a Hapsburg lackey, captured all his womenz, and started a new nation from their offspring, or some such story.

The Danes are sneaky. They have been trying to kill us for years with their damn canned hams and Danish Wedding Cookies. That, and Victor Borge was a Danish spy.

Claiming it is one thing.
Keeping it is another.

I think the fact that nobody cares (other than Santa) will make it easier

Tell ya what...I'll just sell you the North Pole for, oh lets say, $65,236,942.17, 4 P-38's and 1 B-17. I have the deed right here.

Dan Rather can vouch for it's unimpeachable authenticity.
