I agree that he likely wouldn’t be interested in learning Norwegian or about Norwegian culture. He seems to be very much the type where everything has to be done his way.

Didn't he claim that he had Norwegian ancestry? Regardless of whether or not that's true, it is a much-employed tactic of people trying to assimilate with other cultures/nations, for example medieval rulers trying to legitimise their claims to thrones by means of ancestral links etc or Franz Joseph claiming he had Hungarian ancestry around the time of the Austro-Hungarian Compromise in 1867.
 
It wouldn't surprise me if one day he makes a speech or something in Norwegian and thinks it's perfectly pronounced and is the dog's b******s, yet his grasp of Norwegian is worse than Mary's grasp of Danish  Laugh bounce

But i agree with Harley and Principessa, I don't think he has any intention of learning the language or culture of Norway, which is a shame because it means he will miss out on a lot of interesting stuff!!

True. Narcissists don’t worry about inconveniencing themselves by doing things like learning.  Other people should adjust to them.

He doesn't need to learn plain old norwegian. He speaks the godly language of the universe and the angels and can communicate with your heart silently but powerfully. Also he can read your aura. So compared to that what are mere .."words" ?

Only if Harold gives him a title. Since Ari Behn didn’t get one, then “Shaman” is the only title this grifter will get.

It is good to see her looking good and out and about. But ... with her FIL seriously sick - I haven't noticed her doing any official engagements in ages (maybe it was just not covered in the international press) - it is always a bit strange that her illness is used as an excuse for her not working but then you see her skiing, attending private parties ... it is like her fear of flying that never stopped her going to New York for private matters.

I can really see her daughter in her face in this picture!  Usually to me I-A is all Haakon, but something about this picture really makes them look alike.  Side note...how do you pronounce her name?  In my mind it's "Mett-uh Muh-REET" and I'd imagine I'm completely off-base!

METT-uh MAR-it. Mar rhymes somewhere between car and door. Ish 

Of the whole name, the main syllable that should be stressed is MAR. So mett-uh MAR-it.

Thank you! It is certainly interesting!

When on holiday (a group camping travel tour) in Norway I was fascinated by some names; the nature the culture and such. We all soon learned Tusendmal Tak (forgive my spelling Wink ). It would be nice to visit Norway again, as this visit had been about 10 years ago already
