Thoughts on Finland:
- Very high rate of suicides
- dark and cold
- very technology-friendly
- Linux

Well, almost everything I think of has been said already.

Alcohol is expensive (as in Sweden), I think? Maybe being drunk is reserved for wealthy people then?  :lol:
Grey weather, grey moods, high rates of suicide, SENTENCED (fit perfectly in the drunken suicides thingy ;) ), lakes, forests, cold... humm, we probably only have a limited view into the real Finland there, hehe.

Ok ok, we got lots of stuff already !  8)

I suggest we give it one more day and then Virvatuli could give us some inside views about Finland and the way of life !!
Now only hope Virvatuli is still with us ??

Thinking of Finland, Nightwish comes to my mind.
And I'd somehow like to know if this Terva icecream really does exist.

Greetz,

I have developed a daring theory why none of the Finnish blokes want to write a comprehensive statement about their country.
I believe they do not do it because they dont know what to write about. If a similar topic was to be started about Germany and someome asked me "Hey Sir Birdhead, write us something typical about Germany" id be like "uhm... they already brought the clichés - beer, oktoberfest, evil past, origin of gothic, rammstein, etc - now what am I supposed to write: well i listen to metal, many germans dont, many germans listen to other music and/or crappy music, most go to work, many cant find any, we have men and women, good and bad people...
do you see where im going? my theory is that aside from stereotypes most countries (or lets say western countries in the widest sense) are pretty similar when you go beyond the special characteristics that are already embodied in the clichés!

 :hammer:

But this is only what my warped brain mixed together when I was trying desperately to find a solution for this dilemma. poor shadowman must be having a nervous breakdown since noone will inform him about Finland (or Suomi as the Fins call it)...

I am very eager of course to hear alternate theories!!
Or does any of the Fins want to crush my smart-ass theroy by burying us neath a huge heap of information about his country?
Im out!

Hold your horses there Horus ! :wink:
As far as I know there are only a few Fins on this board and that is what makes it the more interesting for us to find out a bit more of Suomi.

Guess the minute we are speaking Virvatuli is preparing a smashing entry about Finland !
And be sure : Germany will be on the list as well.
After all, wouldn't it be interesting to find out what Americans or Australians think about your home country ?
So hush... Don't give it all away yet !!
