    So yeah......
    Perhaps in Norse Language, Iceland is Traditional... But which one between Danish, Norwegian and Swedish will be the Simplified one?

    Kongou... oh Kongou...
    There is no word to describe my desire to rip off your rigging.
    No poetry to describe how much I want to ram my bow against your aft.
    No amount of shells will ever be enough for me,
    for it delights me to continue firing into your hull.
    No amount of happiness can be enough for me,
    as I strip you of your 8.3 inch Vickers Cemented steel armour,
    and see that which you've been keeping secret from me.

    My love, I assure you,
    there is nothing more I'd like
    than to fire my Vickers 14 inch/45 Naval Guns at your beautiful body
    and bury my cannon shells deep inside your munitions deck.

    Seeing your explosion of burning love brings me so much happiness, my Kongou.

    As i know , Hong Kong generally uses traditional Chinese characters, and the Chinese mainland uses simplified characters

    Oh my... I'm curious, where is the source of this poorly made joke?

    Because wow... Really, to call languages that were the same some 500 years ago, and ended up going through different paths altogether as "traditional" and "simplified" is just... Wow.
