    High suicide rates? That's all that really comes to mind.

    Ditto here. It's always entertaining to hear what others think of your country.

    Harsh. So harsh.



    Anyway, I know this is something edible in Finland called mämmi, but I've no idea what it consists of and I'd be too scared to try it!

    We're barely in the top 20 though. What I've noticed is that the murder-suicides are becoming more and more common, i.e. a father sick of life kills his family and then himself.

    Edit; @ Everything Nice, mämmi is awesome with a lil' bit of honey and milk <3 Granted it looks like sticky diarrhea. It's made out of ryeflour, malt, water, syrup, salt and bitter orange zest.

    Simo Hayha. That's all I really need to know to stay on the good side of a Finn.

    My Finnish friend really seemed to be into Conan O'Brien a few years back since they said he looked like your president at the time... who was a woman. Ouch.

    I treat Finns with the same amount of respect/fear I'd treat a Russian or Australian.

    I hate mämmi with passion. Might not be very Finnish of me, but even the smell of it makes me gag a little.

    Totally understandable, I reckon it's kind of like Marmite, you either love it or hate it.

    Unfortunately, when I think of Finland or Sweden my initial thoughts are of vikings, but I know that's definitely not true. I don't really know much about your country really, but would love to do some research.

    They stab eachother for fun - and when they are done stabbin' they kick eachothers asses with birch branches!

    - The biggest Finnish celebreties are The Dudesons, a metal band that cuts themselves -Nightwhish, and Jari Litmanen.
    When they dont cut eachother, they get drunk, and then start to cut eachother.

    - Sometimes they even shoot the ppl they are in school with.

    - You love the sauna
    - You get drunk beyond reason, no such thing as moderation when it comes to drinking
    - High standard of education
    - Finish winter war, beat the communists
    - Swedish-finish history, quite a bit to be said here, Russians came in 1918 I think it was and ruined it all, damn them
    - Love to hate us Swedes when we play eachother in (ice)hockey, or anything els sports related, but generally good relations
    - Had some brilliant car racers
    - Weird, weird language
    - Swedish is still taught in schools(weird imo)
    - Mumintrollen(no idea what you call it)
    - Finish stereotype about Swedish men is that we are all feminine and homosexual

    Yeah thats some

    I sometimes work with a finnish woman. She's really cool, digs old-school rock and metal, and has a relaxed attitude towards alcohol. One of the things we've talked alot about is the differences between the finnish-finnish and the swedish-finnish areas, which i find very interesting. It's kind of like the flandern/france-division of Belgium.

    High frequency of suicides, dark and cold place half of the year, has too small population for interesting tv shows and people don't get long prison sentences in finland.

    That they have awesome metal bands like Nightwish. Also that they kicked Russia in the ass even outnumbered in a war, I thought was pretty damn badass. Also that there are some really hot girls down there and it's apparently really cold too. I would really like to visit Finland one day.

    Oh yeah also this guy from the Winter War, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simo_H%C3%A4yh%C3%A4 << real life Rambo.
