Americans cannot move there. You can spend some time to visit but they don't allow immigration from the states. We're too boorish for their fey ways.

Since the second world war, the UK and Iceland have fought three bloodless wars over cod fishing rights.

Icelands national dish is hakkarl, or fermented shark meat, which is one of the foulest things it is possible to eat. The national drink is brennivin, which is made from potatoes and flavoured with caraway seeds and angelica. It's actually pretty good but it has to be served at a temperature below 0 degrees celsius.

Icelands two main exports are pumice and Lazy Town.

The national drink is brennivin

Translation: "burning wine"

EDIT: Icelandic guys all start growing beards before the age of 14. If they haven't gotten any facial hair before their fourteenth birthday, they are sacrificed into a geyser. Girls can survive until about 16 without a beard, it varies from region to region.

There's also a lot of geysers in Iceland. Some form hot pools, where you can take a swim in the middle of winter. Just remember to wear a woolen cap.

A try at what I can get:

"My Iceland"

First line, well, I have no clue
and flowers around the mountains (?)
and... swanislets, something
and something flowers... beautifully (vallhall - hall is home or some such, and I guess the vall-part is positive. So...)
and something waterfall something sea (ferocious, dangerous, powerful or something in that direction?)
and broad Jökull skulls (the Jökull is the trolls or whatever that's in opposition to the gods, right?)
... fuck it; "deep hens blows the queen away"?
In the day, everyone comes home


it's always fun to read something that split away from your own language about 800 years ago, but still sounds (at times) fairly similar.

EDIT: It's basically a homage to the Icelandic nature (and culture?), and a description of what the author associates with his/her homeland.

A Toast to Iceland
   
Íslands minni

Our land of lakes forever fair
below blue mountain summits,
of swans, of salmon leaping where
the silver water plummets,
of glaciers swelling broad and bare
above earth's fiery sinews ---
the Lord pour out his largess there
as long as earth continues!

I got teargassed there and my photos were published in an English language paper. I got drunk in a bar called Boston with Sigur Ros.  It's hella cheap in winter, but don't expect to leave Reykjavik.  I find Icelandic women very attractive.

Oh, and Blue Lagoon is for tourists, there are better hot springs spas to visit.

I'm going back for Airwaves in October.

They don't go in for guardrails and safety fences. Cliffs? Geysers? Waterfalls? You can walk right up.

They react unpredictably when you try to speak their language but the most common response is pleased surprise followed by an immediate switch to English.
