  • Norwegian in underwear clings to car roof to stop thief

    A man clad only in boxer shorts stopped a thief from stealing his car in southern Norway - by clinging on to the roof in a hair-raising ride at -17C.
    Police say the owner was left "pretty bloody" after the car crashed into a safety barrier on a bridge. A suspect has been taken into police custody.
    The owner, 25, woke up in Kristiansand in the early hours of Wednesday when he heard his car engine firing up.
    He raced out, grabbed a car door-handle and refused to let go.
    The thief tried to shake him off by driving into the snow, but the owner clambered on to the roof of his VW Passat and clung on to the bars as the car sped off.

        It was a Passat though. A missed opportunity to claim on the insurance and buy a decent car.

            Not only did he manage to hang on but he broke the rear window with his knee, got in and grappled with the thief who crashed the car.

              By and large the Norwegians are a distubingly fit lot.

                  A strange quirk about them is that they seem to have no word or phrase for "excuse me,coming through" or at least if they have they choose not to bother with it.
                  My work frequently used to take me to Stavanger and a Norwegian friend explained all of this to me so I decided to watch the locals in the bars and clubs one night and sure enough,if they wish to pass through a space constricted by other locals they say nothing and just barge on through, shoulders straight,knock each other flying and nobody seems to mind.

                  I found this fascinating and decided I would try it myself, after a few more sherberts of course,.
                  Well off I staggered aimed full on at a bunch of blokes jamming a passageway in a bar,SMAAAAASH!!!
                  They were only a bunch of Cloggies weren't they, BIFF,POW,KABOOSH!!!

                  I was the talk of the rig the next day among the Noggies.

                    The Norwegians I met, you'd've suffered less damage walking through a wall. Generally nice guys, but BIG.

                      I'd confirm that, last full time job I had before going into semi retirement was project managing the porting of the Opera browser onto a Nokia smart phone. Opera is a Norwegian product so made some visits to Oslo. Norway definitely has a different culture to Sweden and Finland.
