Default Icelandic Translation

Just saw this a few minutes ago. Thoughts and opinions?
I personally would have the site in Icelandic by default, then have a big button at the top with English text saying: Translate to English! When it is translated to English, the button would read: a til slensku!

Happy April fools day!

Apparently it was done entirely by hand.

[02:23:18] @amr97: Modern art includes artistic works produced during the period extending roughly from the 1860s to the 1970s, and denotes the style and philosophy of the art produced during that era.
[02:23:20] @amr97: The term is usually associated with art in which the traditions of the past have been thrown aside in a spirit of experimentation.
[02:24:26] +Superbird: opinions, amr97, not definitions
[02:24:49] @amr97: oh
[02:24:52] @amr97: i don't get it
[02:24:56] @amr97: is my opinion
[02:25:04] +Superbird: oh ffs
[02:25:28] +Superbird: maybe i should give up and try a different room
[02:25:32] @amr97: probably tbh
[02:26:19] @SamVGC: i think this chatroom

[02:27:02] @amr97: dong-for-dinner lmao
[02:27:07] @amr97: that had to be intentional
[02:27:18] +Superbird: 100% wasn't
[02:27:28] +Superbird: i'm so used to typing dingram's name that
[02:27:45] +Superbird: anything starting with the same first letter
[02:28:17] @Dog-for-Dinner: why is it not a thing to be googled
[02:28:23] @Dog-for-Dinner: google is the story of my high school
[02:28:33] +Superbird: you dont google opinions
[02:28:36] +Superbird: you google facts
[02:28:52] @Dog-for-Dinner: seems like a science student is trying to study humanities

Pranks aside, I've wondered why Butterfree hasn't translated the site into Icelandic and had the option to read as English or Icelandic.

I'm terribly amused at the idea that Pokemon has inexplicably become super-popular in Iceland, and I have this mental image of literally everyone in Iceland walking around with pokewalkers and plushies and sitting around playing their DS.

that's a pretty accurate depiction of my high school starting in 2010 actually I knew like five people who brought their Pokwalkers to school on a daily basis and there were countless loads more. and nowadays a bunch of guys I know in the band will pull their DS's out of hammerspace when bored and it's always Pokmon.

There actually really has been a resurge in Pok-love in Iceland in the past few years. Colleges have gotten taken over by it!

Last year's joke was two fake first chapters of the supposed sequel to Morphic. You probably mean the forum joke, which had absolutely nothing to do with the site or with me. Why does everyone keep connecting them together? :(

Because Icelanders like their complicated grammar.

And I like the language.
