Sorta off topic, but I never thought I'd live to see the day where someone compared what our Nordic friends have done for their countries, with what Thatcher did for the UK... and in the same article at that.
'The Nords have it relatively good, with stable economies and happy citizens' is what I read from the OP's quote. You won't find a Brit alive who'll say what Thatcher did was good for the UK. The vanguard they speak of may have been of new ideas, but they weren't good ideas and people knew it. She got to power by going after Women voters by showing how much money they could save on every day things, but obviously didn't mention her plans to kill off Mining and Steelwork. In the end, it gutted the north of England for well over a decade and destroyed 2 entire industries in the process.
I guess, with it being the same party in power now as back then, it's a case of "Fool me once - shame on you, fool me twice - shame on me" if you consider the economic problems the UK is facing right now. Triple dip recession - Because some people want ketchup, mustard, AND mayo on their fries.

Are Norwegians the Scandinavian rednecks?

Then there's people still believing in everything politicians says, being as anti-swede as possible thinking even our national day is an abomination. The "weak" kind of people.
We are a tolerant people, we dislike going to war and we like to help others. We also like metal, snuff and things that goes brutally fast.
You don't needs to be from any Nordic country to be considered a "nord" it's just the way you behave.

Meh. Finlands economy wont last with the way it's going. Nokia is going down to shitters aswell as the ship construction, farming is on the edge of being unproductive... not to mention paper production outsourcing plants.(Even with a 30% profit marginal). We are starting to lose the income needed to uphold our social programs. With a housing market burst in Helsinki coming to the equation, we will be fucked. Oh and now we have Euro and are a net payer for the EU and PIGS. That article is just fluff that scratches the surface when it comes to my country.

Molde area; Hvilken (pronounced 'Karshin')
Generally though people in Oslo/Kristiansand and the like tend to be obnoxious, rude or arrogant; not explicitly but in terms of attitude.

Shit like this actually goes through your fucking brain?
There are just a few helmet findings from the viking age, mostly due to the cost of iron was very high even though norway at least was a giant in iron exports, we just didn't afford to spend the iron on ourselfs, so we used mostly leather caps.
the helmets found look like iron caps with a nose protector so that the helmets front gets formed as a cross.
Edit: The idea of horned helmets came from a painting or drawing of the norse halfgod Loke, who was wearing a horned helmet.
