Norway launches campaign to give Finland a mountain
Quote:Oslo would lose only 0.015 square kilometres if it gave Finland the peak of Halti mountain, say campaigners

A group of Norwegians has launched a campaign to shift their country's border by 200 metres to bring the peak of the Halti mountain into Finnish territory as a gift to their mountain-deprived neighbour for the 100th anniversary of its independence.

Moving the border between Norway and Finland just 490ft (150m) to the north and 650ft (200m) to the east would bring Finland a new highest peak while losing Norway just 0.015 square kilometres.

At 4,479ft (1,365m), Halti does not even make the list of Norway’s highest 200 peaks. But one of its lower spurs, Hálditšohkka, marks the highest point in Finland, at 4340ft (1,324m).

“My idea is that this should be a gift from the Norwegian people and I feel sure that the Finnish people would appreciate it,” said Bjørn Geirr Harsson, the retired geodesist behind the Facebook campaign.

Norway, you're the best. <3

At the Mountains of Madness.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

Well, that is just 200m shift of the border, at a peak, right at an area full of the descendants of ethnic Finns and Sami people.

Whilst earlier in the Russian lead (supposedly sovereign) Soviet republics....

It was just Khrushchev (Ukrainian Slav) stealing clay from Russian Slavs (who have stolen it from Tatars), so I fully understand his motivation. Never give up clay without a sound reason and the intention to take it back, though. That's just such a Germanic thing to do, ewww. Tongue
