Does Keebler Make Popsicles?

You're on an island. Thousands of miles from the nearest civilization. The terrain is rough. Not easy to grow crops. But you prevail. And you create something out of your island.

But I guess anyone that isolated would go a little crazy.

Looking for elves in Iceland

Belief in the unseen runs so high in Iceland that the Public Roads Administration sometimes delays or reroutes road construction to avoid what locals believe are elf habitations or cursed spots.

Search "elves" and "Iceland" on Google and you get 846,000 hits, nearly triple Iceland's population.

Wow. Good thing "elf habitations" wasn't one of our issues in the past election. But then again, Perot could run again.
