The Big Moose in Sweden. Stoorn.

One thing I'm thankful for this Thanksgiving.
From the Youtube description which I will look up:
Stoorn är ett kul älg projekt som förhoppningsvis ska byggas på en kulle som heter Vithatten.

What I do know, is that it is a big moose. If I remember correctly, Stoorn means "The Big One" in Swedish and it is big. You don't even have to understand what is being said in the video to understand that.

And these things are big in real life too. I saw two in northern Canada and I was on a train in Sweden when it hit a moose in the middle of the night, woke everyone up, I remember it sounded like we had hit a house. These things are big. I also remember looking out at the night sky and seeing the northern lights for the first time.

Anyway, it's Thanksgiving and I'm thankful to the Swedish people for honoring the moose with such a grand construction.
