Conquering Iceland - Meeting #1

Jimmy (reading Wikipedia) -  "Icelanders are avid consumers of literature, with the highest number of bookstores per capita in the world. For its size, Iceland imports and translates more international literature than any other nation. Iceland also has the highest per capita publication of books and magazines, and around 10% of the population will publish a book in their lifetimes."

Jake - "Read this. To prevent the Germans from conquering Iceland and getting too close to home, the British government decided to invade Iceland. Operation Fork took place on the 10th of May 1940 with an invasion force of 746 marines."

Vernon - "The article adds 'ill-equipped and only partially trained' - And this - British Under-Secretary for Foreign Affairs Alexander Cadogan's  diary entry for May 4th 1940 : 'Home [at] 8. Dined and worked. Planning conquest of Iceland for next week. Shall probably be too late! Saw several broods of ducklings' (34 second silence) Sounds easy"

Jake - "According to the Global Peace Index, Iceland is the most peaceful country in the world, due to its lack of armed forces, low crime rate, and high level of socio-political stability"

Vernon - "Jakes, Jimmy, I want to recap the Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) - By the end of 2014, we have succeeded in changing the Icelandic space, both mental and physical, hence re-designing history and reaching a self-emergent society model where each and everyone attends to the unaddressed business of filling his or her soul"

Jake - "Yes. Well put. Vernon, Jimmy, we have enough men for the invasion and to keep the bombings in the continent going"

Jimmy - "And we have a nuclear submarine! Jake, Vernon, let's conquer Iceland !" (Jimmy draws his gigantic smile and waits for the others to smile as well)

Vernon draws his faint but genuine smile. Jake smiles. His teeths show. He heads to the submarine dashboard and chooses 'Akureyri' on the GPS screen.
