Thanks, Norway. You just one-upped my studio apartment with a prison. Halden Prison is a posh palace for the societal refuse of Norway. And it contains the following items:

Training room; chapel; library; family visiting unit; football/soccer field; a school; sound studio; and $1 million in art (most by Banksy-esque graffiti artist Dolk); private bathroom in every cell; window with view in every cell; and a flat-screen TV in every cell.


To be fair, Halden Prison is more for rehabilitation than punishment (as is the Nor Way… Get it?), but come on! I almost want to go rob someone in Norway just so I can finally get a flat-screen.
