I take any comp requests

STAR WARS EPISODE V:
THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK
The shots where Luke uses the force to retrieve his lightsaber
from a distance were achieved by having Mark Hamill throw the
lightsaber away and then running the film in reverse
Mark Hamill had to bang his head 16 times on the ceiling
of Yoda' s hut before the director was satisfied
In an early outtake, when Vader entered the Hoth base
he tripped over a cable and fell down
During the filming of the Battle of Hoth, the Echo Base troops were
actually Norwegian skiers. In exchange for participation
in the film, Lucasfilm made a donation to the Norwegian Red Cross
George Lucas was so impressed by Frank Oz' s performance as Yoda that
he spent thousands of dollars on an advertising campaign to try and get him
an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Lucas' s campaign ultimately
failed because it was felt that a puppeteer wasn' t an actor
With the exception of being sucked out of a Cloud
City window, Mark Hamill did all of his own stunts
one of the first ideas for Lando Calrissian was to have him as a clone
who survived the Clone Wars who leads legions of clones on a planet
they settled on. Another idea had Lando as the descendant of survivors
of the Clone Wars, born into a family who reproduced solely by cloning.
Originally, his name was "Lando Kadar"
George Lucas decided that a battle on an ice planet was necessary because
he felt that it was easy to "cheat" in space, because the background was
black and you could hide errors easily. With a white background, the effects
crews would have to work much harder, and the effects would be more impressive
The scenes where is submerged in the mud pool were shot in
George Lucas' unfinished swimming pool. Most of the crew were hidden
under the water and the entire sequence was shot by George Lucas himself
When shooting on location in Norway, a snow storm hit the hotel where
the cast and crew were staying. This halted filming, but director Irvin Kershner
thought these weather conditions were an excellent opportunity to film the scene
where Luke wanders through the snow after escaping the Wampa cave.
He did this by sending Mark Hamill outside into the cold, while he and
the cameraman stayed and filmed inside the hotel' s front hall
The concept design for Cloud City was originally created for
Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope as a floating Imperial prison
but was never used. The design was recycled for use in this film

Isn't it kinda sad that every Norwegian I spoken to only speaks about their oll?

Well yeah that too, but aquaculture involving salmon is Norway's second biggest "thing" right under the oil.

Well, almost everybody has heard of Mayem, Burzum, Dimmu Borgir or Mayem. Just to name some of the most notorious bands.

Well, we do have this one other thing we rarely talk about because we don't want people to look at us weird, the annual Viking day, or as we call it Den Nasjonale Viking Dagen
Where we basicly just role play vikings in a village for a day, where we mostly do everything a viking would do except murder of course, so we have some girls gettin married to some guy because their parents wanted them to, and they have to have sex, it's really fun, when the day is over everything is broken so marriage and stuff like that was just for one day! it's really fun, 23. august every year, come on up to Norway and watch the fun!
User avatar #50 to #34 - Shramin (05/07/2014) [-]
Norway has oil, fish and potatoes, and history involving exploration.
User avatar #61 to #50 - garaichu (05/07/2014) [-]
I get it. this is norway
User avatar #54 to #50 - reginleif (05/07/2014) [-]
"exploration".

Is that what we're calling viking raids now? ^^ joke.

User avatar #82 to #54 - Shramin (05/07/2014) [-]
Hah, the vikings known for Raiding were commonly Danish, the Norwegian vikings are the once responsible for the discovery and settling of Iceland and Greenland.

There are also the more modern explorations, such as the trek across the Antarctic, and that guy with the Kon Tiki.

The petroleum industry is so huge here, it's ridiculous. Because of the state's pension fund (where we save all our money earned from the petroleum industry, we're able to run the rest of our country on the same investment-based rate (the country without the oil is running a deficit, while with the oil it's a major surplus) for 70 years without taking up loans - that is if we stopped extracting oil today and didn't invest the pension fund into anything, and just used it to even out our deficit.

Apart from petroleum, we're really proud that we're ranked #1 in the all time winter olympics table, and we really like ships.
