Norway and Denmark stayed occupied until the end of the war.
Sweden wasn't occupied because it wasn't necessary, I strongly doubt neutrality had much to do with it.
Purpose of occupying Denmark was to get control over Öresund, easier to take Denmark than Sweden, and one shore is enough for the purpose.
The occupation of Norway was a preemptive strike to take control over Narvik, the main export harbour of Swedish iron ore, before the British did. Yes, there were plans for that.
Sadly the battle of the Scheldt is not very well known, but a documentary is in the making ...
Will it show that Merkans were the true heroes, Billy Bob Buttboy was the pivotal reason they won and that Merka joined the war in 1394 and not 1943?
Or is Hollywood not involved in anyway?
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
As far as I know Hollywood is not involved and, for Dutch standards, it will be a big budget production. Of course there were Americans involved, but the main forces were Canadian, Polish and English. And the Aussies you ask ? they were nowhere to be seen of course, probably too busy drinking beer
A ghost and me from the past came to visit.
The ghost said "If you don't change your ways this will be you in the future."
"Oh my god!", I said, "that's friggin' awesome!"
They then returned to the present.
So I moved a digital clock out of the way of an impending visit by a 3yr old. As it happened, it was put next to a mirror, perpindicularly, so I had a reflection of it that appeared like an adjacent clock of the same type (mirrors tend to do that).
Then, I saw it !
THat's 99 decimal, whose digits add up to 18 and then whose digits add up to 9, again - but only one 9 !
I happen to be listening to Rush and just up the list is 'The Body Electric' from Grace Under Pressure. The chorus for that song is '1001001 SOS'. The first part is binary for 73 which then converts to ASCII as the letter 'I'. Apparently it's about a droid reaching self-awareness.
If this were the SoapBox, I'd bring up the very likely possibility that this is a conspiracy of some sort set up with the introduction of digital clocks (and that include those that worked by flipping metallic leaves).
