Happy 17th of May!

Today the Norwegian Constitution is 199 years old - and according to some ways of looking at it so is Norway as a country... other ways of counting puts Norway at 1089 years (in 1905 the parliament told the Swedish-Norwegian king that they figured he had failed to fulfil his duties, so bye!), or at 1141 years (Battle of Hafrsfjord, which may or may not have taken place in or around 872).

At any rate, Happy 17th!
