Frelsi til a drekka

BBC greinir fr:

In 1985, the then Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev drastically cut vodka production and did not allow it to be sold before lunch-time.

Researchers say alcohol consumption fell by around a quarter when the restrictions came in. Then, when communism collapsed, people started drinking more again and the overall death rates also rose.

. . . "When President Yeltsin took over from President Gorbachev, the overall death rates in young men more than doubled. This was as society collapsed and vodka became much more freely available.

Frelsi er vandmefari og stundum er a leiin til nauar.

Yeltsin gat skvett sig, eins og menn muna. egar hann var kornabarn drukknai hann nstum v skrnarfontinum egar fullur prestur var a skra hann. Eitt sinn, eftir a hann var orinn forseti, var Yeltsin ofurlvi fyrir utan Hvta hsi. Hann var nrbuxunum og var a reyna n leigubl. Hann var svangur og langai pizzu.

Edward Gibbon skrifai hi frga sagnfririt The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (1776-89). eirri bk kemst hann oft skemmtilega a ori. Hann segir meal annars:

The northern countries of Europe scarcely deserved the expense and labour of conquest. The forests and morasses of Germany were filled with a hardy race of barbarians, who despised life when it was separated from freedom: and though on the first attack they seemed to yield to the weight of Roman power, they soon, by a signal act of despair, regained their independence and reminded Augustus of the vicissitude of fortune.

Um Skotland hefur Gibbon etta a segja:

The masters of the fairest and most wealthy climes of the globe turned with contempt from gloomy hills assailed by the winter tempest, from lakes concealed in a blue mist, and from cold and lonely heaths over which the deer of the forest were chased by a troop of naked barbarians.

Gibbon var Englendingur.

A lokum er hr lsing Rm og eim trarbrgum sem ar tkuust. Segja m a etta s dmi um forna fjlmenningu:

The policy of the emperors and the senate, as far as it concerned religion, was happily seconded by the reflections of the enlightened, and by the habits of the superstitious, part of their subjects. The various modes of worship which prevailed in the Roman world were all considered by the people as equally true, by the philosopher as equally false, and by the magistrate as equally useful. And thus toleration produced not only mutual indulgence but even religious concord.

Svo mrg voru au or.

Drama

a verur spennandi a lesa etta. Eirkur Bergmann hefur skrifa greinar fyrir The Guardian. ann rettnda aprl 2010 skrifar hann meal annars:

And then came the Crash. We now know it was inevitable. The truth committee's report has turned a mirror on us. Once so proud to be the home of the oldest parliament in the world, we now have to face the embarrassing fact that we allowed a handful of businessmen and corrupt politicians to turn our established democracy into some kind of idiotcracy.

But today we begin the process of taking our country back.

a er hugavert a bera etta saman vi sguskringar Hannesar Hlmsteins Gissurarsonar, sem skrifar grein sinni Five Years On:

The 2008 collapse of the Icelandic banks has already generated some myths. One is that the Icelandic banking sector was overgrown. There is no such thing as an overgrown banking sector. All depends on the area which the sector is serving and the institutional support it can expect to receive.

Sar grein sinni segir Hannes:

The problem was not that the banks were too big; it was that Iceland was too small.

Samkvmt Hannesi voru bankarnir ekkert of strir. sland var bara of lti. a a ra a eitthva frekar? :)
