Axe-man arrested

I told you about the man who chased the woman with an axe. Well, now he's arrested, and will be put in jail for 4 weeks, while the investigations continue. He claims he's innocent.

Republican leader, attacked!

Reblican leader, Høgni Hoydal, got punched in the face, when he was in an hotel in Bergen, Norway, tuesday night. Another person from the Faroe Islands hit him in the face. This person has later apologized, and claimed the incident had nothing to do with politics. Høgni Hoydal, wont press charges against this man, and ends by saying, "I was just standing in the wrong place".

Hans F. Hansen

I'm not getting any percentages or anything for plugging this, but. Hans Fróði Hansen, goes under the artist name, Hans F. Hansen is launcing a skincare collection for men.

I remember a YouTube segment once, where he was mingling with Pamela Anderson, while she was shaking her groove.

Check out his page here:

He's put alot of effort into his business, i hope it goes well for him.

Bits and pieces

Sorry for my awol's inbetween, but i am afraid they will occur from time to time.

Now for what's happening in my country.

The coalition has agreed to further their term with 2 weeks, shortening the election campaign from 6 weeks to 4 weeks. Republican leader Høgni Hoydal is furious at this decision, saying that only in countries we don't want to compare ourselves with, would such a thing like this happen.


This next piece shocked me.

In a store in Tórshavn, at night, some people were at work. A woman sees a man she doesn't know at the counter, she approaches him, all of a sudden, he lifts an object, which she thinks is an axe, she runs off, he starts chasing her with this axe... she manages to escape. The man is not caught yet, but there is video footage of the incident.

A user on said that this has to be a sign of we're a part of the globalized world... he was joking ofcourse.


I see we're mentioned on - Make sure to check that out. He gives a near to perfect picture of the Faroe Islands.
