The Public Disorder Committee of Denmark hereby declares, that if you are planning to do criminal activities in Denmark in the near future, you should do that on Friday between 7am to 3pm due to the fact that the entire Danish police force will be gathered in Copenhagen at that time. (This is of course not the case in Copenhagen, where criminal activities should be conducted between the hours 4pm and 7pm where the police force is heading back home again, or debriefing).
All this because some president is visiting Copenhagen.

I remember when I was a very young man - in the late seventies.
My father said to me: "Son, think of all that fuel we burn off each day all over the planet. I can't understand why the air isn't getting warmer because of that. All that heat, all that burning".
My dad didn't think about CO2 and the greenhouse effect. He was thinking in more simple terms. And I remember thinking: "That silly old man. He must be daft. I choose not to comment on his silly thinking at all".
Now we're in the middle of it, and it turns out that he was more right about things than at least I thought. He died in '97 and never knew how right he really was.
Dare I be the very first to wish you, the regulars and irregulars alike, on Allan's Weblog a very happy Christmas?
To get you in a proper Christmas-mood as soon as possible, I would like to introduce you to this Finnish short-movie. If you use the required 8 minutes, I promise you, Christmas will never more be the same.
