AINIRO.IO is a 100% Norwegian company. If you knew anything about Norwegians, you'd know it's "not cool" to be patriotic or brag too much about our country. Today is the exception. Today it's the 17th of May, and on the 17th of May it's perfectly legitimate to wave our flags and celebrate our country.
Today is the only day of the year it's OK for us to inform you that our ChatGPT website chatbot technology is created by Norwegians. To understand why, is to understand our history.
Between 1940 and 1945 Norway was occupied by Nazis. My grandfather, Aria and Tage's great grandfather was in the resistance movement, and helped smuggle hundreds of escaped concentration camp prisoners over to Sweden into safety. This was in Narvik. If you knew anything about Narvik and the war, you'd know we are rightfully a 100 times more patriotic than the rest of Norway. Half of Germany's Kriegsmarine can be found at the bottom of Narvik's fjords, and Narvik was the first place on Earth where Hitler lost a fight.
When Norway surrendered to the Nazis, there were 5 star generals seriously considering refusing to surrender North Norway and Narvik. The Nazis were given a whoppin' up there! And Narvik never surrendered because of losing anything, Narvik surrendered because they were ordered to surrender by the Norwegian Government who was fleeing to England. We were the bad asses of the Norwegian war efforts, the A star team, together with allied soldiers from England, France, Poland and a lot of other countries. Narvik was the place where the soldiers of other occupied and pillaged countries were taking their revenge!
My favourite story about Aria and Tage's great grandfather, was how he met Josef Terboven with a loaded shotgun on the lawn when the Nazis wanted to take his house and use it as their HQ in Narvik. Terboven had 50 soldiers armed with machine guns behind him, and an additional force of 350,000 soldiers in total. Terboven tried to explain my grandfather why the Deutsche Reich needed his house. My grandfather's reply was ...
That'll be over my dead body!
On the scale of stubborn Norwegians, between 1 and 10 - My grandfather was at level 100,000. After a couple of hours of negotating with my grandfather's shotgun, the Nazis were forced to simply leave. After the war my children's great grandfather used to explain the situation as follows;
I just pointed my shotgun at the schmuck with the most rubbish on his shoulders
That schmuck was Josef Terboven, Hitler's right hand man in Norway. A general with 350,000 soldiers behind him. My grandfather's response was "only 350,000, maybe you should gather some more friends and come back later". You can see Terboven in the picture below.
Psst, kids, be proud of where you're coming from. Your origins are from an unbroken chain of bat shit crazy motherpips, and we expect nothing less but greatness from you too 😁
17th of May
The 17th of May 1945 was the first time in 5 years we were allowed to wave our Norwegian flags, and it instantly became a really big deal. Max Manus, the guy sitting with the machine gun in the front seat with the Norwegian King, was single handedly responsible for killing roughly 4,000 Nazi soldiers. 20 more men like Max Manus in Europe, and the Nazis would never have been able to even leave their country in 1940. Max was the number one bad ass of all the bad asses in the world! They made a Hollywood movie about him some 10 years ago for those interested. A spectacular movie based upon true events.
Gunnar Sønsteby Kjakan, another bad ass Norwegian, was the sole reason Hitler never got the Atomic Bomb, together with a handful of friends, as they blew up Rjukan. These were "simple farmers from Norway, and Hitler thought he could bully us" - Well, we showed him where David bought his beer!
It's OK to be Norwegian
Today is the day we remember that sure, we might look and act like a bunch of sissies during peace time. However, when needed, we're Vikings - 100% pure blooded berserkers, with boiling blood, capable of giving entire empires a whoppin', that'll hunt them in their dreams for a 1,000 years. Bat shit crazy berserkers, drawing our line in the sand like my grandfather did 83 years ago as we say out loud to everyone trying to rip us off.
Here but not further!
Anyways, these are the guys creating your ChatGPT AI chatbot, and in case you wonder where our quality and bad ass abilities originates from, now you know! Today is the one day of the year when we can proudly say; "Your ChatGPT chatbot is 100% Norwegian made!" And of course, since I'm from Narvik, I intend to use it to our benefit to its maximum extent 😁
Happy birthday Norway. 78 years ago, on this day, you were born - Congratulations to all of Norway! You're the bad asses of the bad asses. The people who gave Hitler a whoppin' - Never forget that! Hipp, hipp hurra!!
