Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.
For the record the Icelandic police are probably the best police force in the world, There has only been one instance where an officer shot and killed a civilian in the entire history of the country (which is nearly a hundred years) and everyone was completely devastated by it, the police especially — because, as made clear in their statements after the incident, they understand their function is to protect the people. Not to mention that their general police go unarmed except for special squads.
Let’s run through some more facts while we’re on the subject: Compared to 31,000+ shooting deaths in the US in 2009, Iceland had… 4, because they have very rigorous screening processes for gun permits. There is very little economic disparity between upper, middle and lower classes, and social welfare programs take care of their people. Drug use affects less than 1% of the population between 15 and 65 years old, and 90% of drug-related court cases are settled with a fine rather than jail time. Violent crime is virtually non-existent. [x]
Iceland is like if you took the entire idea of chill and personified it as an country, and this exemplifies that.
Iceland is one of the most spectacular places in the world and it holds very dear to me. But also keep in mind the entire country of Iceland is no larger than the state of Kentucky, and 2/3 of their entire population is in just one city. But the thing about being chill? Couldn’t agree more.They are the definition of chill.

A man famous for directing and acting in silent films, his deadpan expression, physical comedy, and, featured above, his stunt performance. This man did all his own stunts, and they are amazing.
I’ve been reeeeally enjoying these slapstick comedies in history of film, the gimmicks are INSANE!
