Asked in Norway, Fairy Tales

What is a norwegian troll?

User Avatar
A troll is the norwegian word for an ogre, but can not really be compared to anything. It is a beast often living in the woods, scary but it can have nice sides as well. Trolls are most often mentioned in norwegian tales or fairytales. They are big and stupid, easy manipulated. They are filthy and some of them have trees growing on their head. All of them have long hair. One do not believe that trolls exist, but rumor has it that they used to, but when they got hit by the sun, they turned into big rocks. That is the explanation why large rock can be found on weird places (they used to be a troll). The most famous troll in Norway can be found in Hunderfossen Familepark in Lillehammer (yes, that is the olympic city) three houres away from the capital Oslo.

Asked in World War 2, Norway

How was Norway affected by World War 2?

User Avatar
It was occupied by the German Army. The king and democratic elected government took refuge in allied countries like the UK, the US and Canada and organized sabotage and psyops from there. Many people were tortured and died fighting the German forces. Known communists, jews, gypsies, homosexuals and people opposing German rule was sent to German ran concentration camps and POW camps in Germany and Poland. A traitor (Vidkun Quisling) perpetrated a coup during the German invasion and installed an illegal traitor government backed up by the Germans. Quisling was convicted of treason after the war and was shot. Food, fuel and other resources was in short supply during the war. People ate fish and vegetables, drank artificial coffee and smoked rationed tobacco. Cars ran on wood pellets instead of gas. In the autumn of 1944, people in the far North of Norway was forced to evacuate to the south by the German Army and their homes were burned to the ground to prevent Russian forces using them as they advanced on the German forces. But the Soviet forces advanced only as far as Tana in the far north-east region. After the war ended, the British, Norwegians and Germans expected a Soviet occupation of Norway's far-north region, called Finnmark, as there was nothing to stop them. But the Soviet leader, Stalin, ordered a withdrawal and the Soviet forces left Finnmark on September 25, 1945.

There are many ways in which this question can be answered, first and foremost, there is only one actual way this can be answered. If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? Cheese on toast, this is the other way of answering the question.

Asked in Science, Norway, IQ

How does the average IQ of Norway compare to the average IQ of the rest of the world?

User Avatar
Quite frankly, this is a question that is not possible to answer with current technology. While Norway tested higher in earlier parts of this century the rest of the world has been catching up since 1991. It is suspected that Norway simply has better environmental conditions for learning thus allowing students to give better answers resulting in an apparent higher IQ. In theory IQ should not be affected by education but in practice we have not achieved that state as of yet.
