Comments on: Iceland’s long night http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/12/07/icelands-long-night/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: TinyTim1 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/12/07/icelands-long-night/comment-page-1/#comment-9680 Tue, 08 Dec 2009 12:56:23 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/12/07/icelands-long-night/#comment-9680 Felix, I am sure you realise that what goes around comes around: long nights become long days.

We played footy until well past 11pm.
