Don't wish to blow my own trumpet, but there may be a small part of Sweden on this globe that was mapped by yours truly. The geology of the area in question was originally thought to have been a deep sea deposit, but I found a conglomerate there, which could only have been left in a river valley environment (flash floods and all that). My research on the area was published by my tutor as proof of that particular theory.

I know, I know, it was controversial. But you have to tell the truth sometimes, however upsetting it might be.

I'm quite proud of the fjords around Norway.

You took geology? Got any cool geology facts to share?
