Fun Fact for the Day
So in the late 800's early 900's the Vikings found Iceland and named it such so that no one would be interested in going there. This was because it was a rich agricultural area and they wanted to horde it. Many years later a man by the name of Eric the Red was exiled from Iceland for murder and other mischief. He found Greenland which had been rumored about from various fishermen. He named the area such because it sucked and he wanted to encourage others to come live there and help out the economy. So now you know why Iceland is green and Greenland is ice.
