Security guards, screens, and Norway

When I first became a professional (i.e. got paid for finding my way around a file cabinet) in California, the stereotyped security guard posted in the reception area would watch TV on the one screen not watching the building. Yesterday, when I left work, I heard our security guard chuckling at his single screen and since I knew it wasn't TV (we don't have any), it had to be the internet. Ah, yes, times have changed.

Upon inquiry as to the source of the merriment, I was informed that Jeremy Clarkson's description of Norway was an absolute riot. It is. See for yourself. (Don't let the part about the Mercedes throw you.)
