We want to move to Reykjavík, Iceland, which has the coolest mayor
ever. Jon Gnarr, an actor, comedian and philosopher
elected as head of his own Best Party, offers a singular
"Welcome to Reykjavik" in which he ponders
existence, Schrödinger's cat's name, elves, the EU and other mysteries.
His campaign video - "We want a city that's cuddly and
clean and cool" - is also the bestest. In his platform: free towels in
swimming pools, an end to mediocrity and a drug-free Parliament by 2020.
"The odds of you being in Reykjavík are not great. The greatest part
of mankind is elsewhere...Does this mean that I always existed, or that I never existed and do
therefore not exist now? That can't be! If I do
not exist, then neither do you...I hope these thoughts shed some light on the history of Reykjavík and
