  I flew over Greenland a few times, it seemed really nice.

  Uhh...that's not true, actually. I got jumped by a couple of (Inuits) Greenlanders last week after a party. I'm not down with Greenlanders at all.

  You might have been having a bit of a Boston Tea Party thing going on there; where it was actually a bunch of non-Greenlandic people, putting on false ascents, wearing seal skin coats, and vocalizing a throat game, whilst attacking you. This would then make it obvious that it wasn’t Greenlandic Inuits at all but in fact people who had done poor research not realizing that the throat songs come from the likes of the Netsilki of Canada. Yip the ol’ Boston Party –dress up like indigenous peoples and let them get the blame- trick. I bet that was what happened. Its okay, it happens to the best of us.

  That happened to me once on the savannah. I was set upon by a herd of wildebeest and I hated them for years until I was in a pub and this guy overheard my story and started laughing. Apparently his brother was part of a Boston Dress Up Like Wildebeest thing, and they used to maul people, because they didn't like the way wildebeest were always seen as fragile, edible animals... wanted to give them a harder edge.
It didn't work. Cheetahs still ain't scared of them and I think his brother is a fool.

Goes to show, though...
