Was SoS, Drop or Bikini, which I knew would be a HUGE SHEEP.

My grandfather prepped the sites on the Rat Islands in Alaska while he was in the Navy. I couldn't recall the proper name of the island (Amchikta) when I was answering the questions though.


also, LMAO @ Japan.

The thing about Norway and EU is pretty complicated though, they are not formally an EU-member but they are in the european economic agreement, they follow all EU-regulations and participate in the schengen-agreement. For all intents and purposes Norway is an EU-member in all but the most formal way, they are not represented in the EU-parliament and they are allowed to overlook certain laws particularly relating to fishing-laws within EU.

stupid spain i knew i should've gone with UK

edit: this might hurt me but i'm pretty sure norway is a constitutional monarchy.
We all thought different. :( I also wish you'd gone with UK if it's any consolation.

Yeah had just visited Alaska but also couldn't come up with it. CM was looking for questions, and this was one I had actually suggested, and then I was angry at myself for only being able to think of Bikini and Christmas Island. I knew Bikini would be a major SHEEP, and I was just hoping I could escape with some holiday spirit.

I think Criminally Stylish hit it on the head with the fishing laws. I think they overall agree with the philosophies the EU supports (green energy, avoid war, etc) but they're wary of some specific regulations/euro. Acordding to wikipedia it's this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Fisheries_Policy

Iceland and Norway apparently have big fishing industries (makes sense) so their industries would suffer a lot if they joined the EU. (ctrl+f norway on that fisheries page)
