    They have the highest coffee consumption per capita, at 12 kg per person per year. That's 32 grams per day. The next closest is Norway at 9.9 kg/year.

    In the US, our consumption is 4.2 kg per person per year, 25th place. Damn mormons bringing down our average...

    No, there's shit loads of trees in Finland and hence we got big paper production. Almost the whole country is covered in trees and lakes.

    I really should learn to engage my brain before typing.

    +1 internets for you, sir!

    What I know about Finland:

    -Vittu
    -The Winter War
    -Finland was occupied by the Nazis during WWII but it was more a means to an end. Once the Winter War was over, the Finnish army turned around and kicked the Nazis out of the country.
    -Also there was a synagogue set up in Lapland on the Finnish front (the only one on the Nazi front) and Jews who were able to made pilgrimage. Said synagogue was also set up 2 km away from Nazi command. They weren't happy.
    -Rovio and Angry Birds which are slowly taking over the world.
    -Lots of heavy metal, a lot of power metal seems to get exported more than the others.
    -"Y" is pronounced like "u" except when it's not.
    -Written Finnish and spoken Finnish are almost two different languages.
    -Tarja Halonen looks like Conan O'Brien.
    -Reindeer sausage.
    -Salmiakki.
    -Vodka. Lots of vodka.

    I may or may not have a desire to visit Finland some day. :x
    That fabric softener teddy bear...oooh I'm 'a hunt that little bitch down.

    How do we have too small population for interesting tv shows? ;< There are really great tv shows here in my opinion! Ofc I like watching loads of US and UK tv series but we can make really good quality tv shows too! :P

    Fins are great drivers!! I saw this on Top Gear where they gave all the Great Fin racing lineage and how your driving test is vert intensive. Mika Hakkinen is one of my favortie F1 drivers. Also you guys seem to be very good at WoW and raiding in particular. So I'm going to say you guys must really be anally retentive (this is a godd thing!).

    I know they kicked Russia's ass in the Winter War even though they had to cede land.

    I certainly wouldn't wanna fight them.

    Oh, and Simo Häyhä
