To Sigvald and Anders,
Are you guys sure you were on the same trip together? I have to say, Sigvald, I think you're
being a little obsessive about meaningless details. For one thing, the word "marine" can be used
in English and The Marines and The Navy are two different entities (at least in the US, an
English-speaking country. I know, I know, countries don't speak). Perhaps the Norwegian word
for navy is Marine and that is what Anders was trying to convey. But again, a minor detail, which
really does nothing to derail from Anders' original account of his trip.
Furthermore, the words "slicer" and "cutter" are virtually interchangeable when preceded by the
word "cheese." A cheese-cutter and a cheese-slicer serve the exact same purpose: the slow,
deliberate destruction of delicious cheese for consumption. -D.
