I’m a teacher and today two new students signed up at my school - three year old identical twin boys. Their names are Sora and Riku.
That generation is here.
Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.
For the record the Icelandic police are probably the best police force in the world, There has only been one instance where an officer shot and killed a civilian in the entire history of the country (which is nearly a hundred years) and everyone was completely devastated by it, the police especially — because, as made clear in their statements after the incident, they understand their function is to protect the people. Not to mention that their general police go unarmed except for special squads.
Let’s run through some more facts while we’re on the subject: Compared to 31,000+ shooting deaths in the US in 2009, Iceland had… 4, because they have very rigorous screening processes for gun permits. There is very little economic disparity between upper, middle and lower classes, and social welfare programs take care of their people. Drug use affects less than 1% of the population between 15 and 65 years old, and 90% of drug-related court cases are settled with a fine rather than jail time. Violent crime is virtually non-existent. [x]
Iceland is like if you took the entire idea of chill and personified it as an country, and this exemplifies that.

I love this
pure, uncut, bottled-at-the-source, industrial-strength cringe
please don’t insult space dandy’s narrator, he is just doing his job
you literally cannot say this is cringe
space dandy is the epitome of excellent line delivery in a dub
God is so out of touch after 14.8 billion years
he’s a keeper
My eyes are leaking and I have a lump in my throat. This is so so cute
Living in your own personal hell makes you wonder what it would be like to escape from that life even for a minute
