* In 1896, Norwegian explorer Fritdjof Nansen tried to reach the Norht Pole by ship and failed. He and a loyal sidekick, Hjalmar Johansen, bravely tried to reach the pole on foot, carrying a sled and provisions. They failed again, and ended up on Franz Joseph`s land, waiting for their rescue.

* This may possivbly be a Scandinavian trade mark. During a crucial session in the Norwegian Parliament in 1958, the Labor Party had to accept a strong resistance to the suggestion that Norway should deploy nuclear weapons on behalf of the NATO alliance. A freshly minted politician, Berge Furre, managed to turn the tide, and made the party vote no to nuclear weapons in parliament. Party secretary Haakon Lie, famously known for harsh methods, strong loyalty to the US and a vulcanic temper, hissed to this young politician: "This might as well be your death sentence!" The young man calmly answered:
---> "Or yours!"
** Berge Furre was actually left alone after this, went on to form a new left wing party, [[HilariousInHindsight and survived Haakon Lie with more than ten years]].

* When trapped in Moria in the movie of ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Fellowship of the Ring]]'', Boromir looks out the door and announces, "They have a cave troll." The tone is almost conversational. The circumstances, that ''this'' is important information in an already critical situation, make it dramatic.

The tone is almost conversational. The circumstances, that ''this'' is important information in an already critical situation, make it dramatic. At the very worst, he sounds annoyed, instead of freaking out as most people likely would that something that can pick you up and throw you with one hand is about to attack.
