    It’s funny how they say “It’s green in Iceland, and icy in Greenland!”….

    As a Finnish horse, he’d be better off playing an Estonian or Magyar. At least the languages would be similar.

    re: iambluejay

    it’s weirder yet that Greenland was actually green when Eric the Red got there. When the Little Ice Age began around 1300, by 1350 between the pugnacious innuit arriving and the ice forming, the Norse had to leave. Pretty hard to farm in ice and invading tribes made it untenable.
    .
    It’s also why I laugh when someone tries to claim an ice core from where the vikings used to farm is “100,000 years old” when the oldest ice in the coring is ~650 years.

    The accents used indicate sounds unformable by the human vocal system.

    The way I heard the story (and I’m not saying it was more accurate) is that, when Eric founded the Greenland colony, he observed that colonists were discouraged from moving to (the significantly greener) Iceland because of the name. The book I have agrees that the Little Ice Age made that barely habitable fringe of land into something incapable of supporting any kind of agriculture and the colony disappeared. Greenland is said to have had forested land back in the 12th century, though, and that certainly has not come back… So who knows?

    @androgenoide

    Some of the history I’ve read claims the last settlers in Greenland either starved to death or married into Inuit families. Who knows…

    The Icelandic Horse is a recognized breed. They’re pretty hairy.
