This Day In Scandi Infamy

MattM. delivers this whole post.

On this day in 1947, Thor “Icicle Chunker” Heyerdahl completed a 101 day, 4,300 mile journey from Peru to Raroia (which I think is the Norwegian word for “Peru”). He made the entire journey in a balsa wood raft. He claimed it was for science*, but it turns out that it he’d merely been chasing after a fish he wanted to marry.

*The Scandi word for “science” literally translates to “magic herring.”
