First off, check out this article on the Panama Papers if you need some background on this.  Amongst the reams of data on offshore monetary sneakiness was some really pertinent stuff on the current (and probably about to be ex) PM of Iceland. As one might imagine, the population of same are understandably even MORE pissed after the endrun around the events of 2008.  So there was this rally in Reyjkavík, about one fifth of the population OF Reyjkavík in number (I daresay some came in from elsewhere in the country) in the central square outside the governmental buildings brandishing homemade signs telling him to quit, now, in most colorful terms, and tossing eggs and skyr (Icelandic equivalent of yogurt) and probably less mentionable items to make their point.  I can only say I wish them better luck this time... and wonder what fun we'll have when the folks digging through this trove get around to the US...  Yes, the author is the same Rei as the one with the great volcano reports last year... And there are photos. BOY are there photos.

Oh fungus - I'd have to quote a huge chunk of this so I'm not going to bother - here's the title, (and a representative photo) click on it and you'll get the whole enchilada.
