2022.01.27 19:59 Grouchy-Apartment-33 Dwarves in Norse literature offensive?
I wonder what Norwegians think of this article.
Dwarfs of old fairytales have nothing to do with little people in everyday life. Dwarfs were in old Norse mythology, legends and folklore. They typically were ugly and mined underground. I remember reading somewhere that they mined underground because they descended from maggots in the flesh of a frost giant whose flesh became the earth. The Poetic Edda apparently does say that dwarfs came from the giant and that the giant's flesh became the earth: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ymir
This is consistent with the depiction of dwarfs in the story of Snow White. Dinklage calls it a stereotype, but I don't think anyone over the age of three would believe that modern-day little people live in caves.
I think the problem is that little people in English-speaking countries chose the term "dwarf" as their preferred term even though it came from old European folklore. I'm wondering if Norwegian depictions of Nisser will come under fire someday.
I'm noticing various cases where historically oppressed Americans impose their views on non-American cultures. For example, Americans condemned Japanese ganguro, yamanba and manba, which have nothing to do with minstrelsy or with people of African descent. Instead, these Japanese styles are based on the traditional mountain witch Yamanba, who is depicted in Noh theater.
It seems like there should be a better solution than censoring literature and arts from non-American cultures that existed long before America and its domestic problems. Otherwise, it would only be fair for other countries to censor American arts for reasons that are offensive to those countries but unknown to Americans. I don't know the solution. But I am curious what Scandinavians think about this article.

2022.01.27 19:59 Character-Block6211 Second hand smoke showing up on drug test?
so I have been testing negative for the past 2 days and was around my boyfriend who smokes and now I tested positive. I am a smoker but I have naturally been testing negative as I haven’t been smoking. My pee was a lot clearer for the last 2 tests compared to this one so maybe that had to do with it? Im just wondering how long it will stay in my system if it is due to second hand smoke. I am relatively tall and have a low BMI. I have a drug test in a week so I’ve been testing myself everyday and now these results just made me anxious. Any tips or advice would be helpful. Thanks!

Any time I have to update a game, it’s always a bigger update than it says, it makes my games so slow that I can’t even play them, and it take twice as long to do the finishing up thing than to update

2022.01.27 19:59 Slimsta Are there any indications of the price being lowered?
I have been looking at Spy Party for a while now and it something my friends and I would definitely enjoy playing every now and then. But at £20 it is a bit too much for the kind of game it is. From what I've seen it is never on sale and my friends and I don't wanna be spending £20 on Spy Party. Is there any indication from the devs that the price may be lowered or go on sale anytime soon?

2022.01.27 19:59 Wit-wat-4 Bending down suddenly much easier?
This is so odd but I can find nothing in my kindle books or google about this.
Today, suddenly, at past 37 weeks, I find it a thousand times easier to bend at the waist. I noticed when I picked up my shoes without much thought. Then said “well that was easy”, so I tried bending to actually put them on without sitting down and… no problems??
Has anybody else had this?
I thought maybe it was baby dropping/lightening but I can’t see an obvious drop in the mirror, wish I’d taken a picture yesterday to compare.
For reference I haven’t been able to bend down comfortably for weeks now, sitting down even to put on thin socks because belly used to get in the way.

2022.01.27 19:59 FruityWelsh Minimum packages for Cockpit-machines to display VNC in console page?
A recent deployment of ours uses we would like cockpit-machines for managing a small number of VMs, but ran into an issue with the console page never connecting to VNC or Desktop viewer, only the serial out. After troubleshooting, finally tested on a "Server with Gui" deployment, and it just works with that.
That said, we do not need the whole desktop environment and was curious if there was already a paired down list of dependencies on this feature to reduce our utilization and number of services to secure.
Any help would be appreciated, if I find anything myself I'll be sure to update this thread.
