A government investigation carried out by the Fljotsdalsherao municipal council in Iceland has ruled that a legendary sea serpent named Lagarfljotsormurinn, which is rumoured to inhabit Lake Lagarfljot, actually exists. According to the Discovery News, the commission ruled that a 2012 video of what is claimed to be Iceland’s most famous lake monster is authentic.
It’s not clear whether the “truth commission” was originally a serious study or a tongue-in-cheek stunt, but in the end it doesn’t matter. The local government paid out about $4,000, but it’s a tiny fraction of the money that monster tourism will bring

This will disturb the peace of the invisible elves residing there.
Not that I have something against elves, I like the fact that they include these kind of magic stuff in their decision making. Just take whatever comes from that country with a grain of salt.
