Yurrp Is Odd

The other day on the radio I heard two stories that reinforced to me just how odd Europe is.

One of these reports was a refutation of the notion that women on corporate boards do a better job of governance than men, but included in the analysis was the fact that in Norway, 40% of the seats on corporate boards are reserved for women, with the result that in Norway you find women who sit on the boards of 8 or 10 companies, which is apparently rather a lot of work.

The other report was a mention of a brothel in Germany (where prostitution is legal) that offers a 5% discount if you arrive by bike or public transportation.
