I hate them. I hate the drawings the tv show, the damn name, the damn annoying way trees are drawn, i hate their house, i hate the town here that has claimed them as their tourist thing, i hate my city library for having those damn white hippos on display, i can't stand the translations and i can keep on telling more of these!

It is a completely irrational hatred towards them. I'm pretty sure no moomins have ever done anything bad to me, but even if my kids friends have moomin crap on, i end up hating the friend. One of my dear friends found himself a girlfriend who likes moomin coffee mugs so i haven't seen my friend in five years. There is no reasoning with this all consuming hate.

The worst part is that those books are quite good and the writer is the hero of all women in Finland. I still can't stand them at all.

I need coffee (we finns are the biggest consumers of the black gold in the world!). Clearly i am missing a filter.

Awesome rant. That's like Pepa Pig and Paw Patrol for lots of parents.

Who is Lups? She is supposed to be Finnish. Some say her father was German. Nobody believed she was real. Nobody ever saw her or knew anybody that ever worked directly for her, but to hear Kobayashi tell it, anybody could have worked for Lups. You never knew. That was her power. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world she didn't exist. And like that, poof. She's gone.

Do you believe in Lups?

Keaton always said, "I don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of him." Well, I believe in God -- and the only thing that scares me is Lups.

There is no proof in regards of my dad being a german. I always assumed he was a finn since he communicated by grunting only.

Yesterday was an epic celebration here! All of Finland tuned in to watch our president shaking hands with two thousand people, and most of us visited a cemetery. I didn't see even one firework, and because this was a full hundred we celebrated all year by voting a dark rye bread as our national bread.

We are real party animals for sure! Not only did we fuck up by declaring independence in the middle of the winter to ensure maximum coldness for our special day, watching people shake hands is us polishing our dancing shoes.

I swear we are the most boring nation in the world.

I don't remember if it's official but we sure as hell voted for one. I'm not even sure if that one won and i won't check since that could ruin a good story.

It fucking sucks man! We have hockey as a religion and we suck at it. We've finally learned how to cook and we then vote a known laxative as our national bread. Our national animal is a fucking swan known to be the angriest animal in the world.

Will see how your team does without Crosby in this year's Olympics
I was being sarcastic. Of course juniors hockey matters, even more than any other type imo. Myself and my businesses are heavily involved in sponsoring and supporting our local and national teams.

Speaking of Olympics, I beleive we will dominate as usual whether Crosby is in or not. Actually Canada probably can field two or three teams and they'd dominate most if not all. In Canada, hockey is not merely a sport it's a way of life.

Have a cheerful day..

That Finland participate in the Olympics. There was a Finish lady at a sailing olympic event and I thought... I wouldn't mind finishing with her!

Otherwise I know SFA about the country, where it is on the map... so educate me with this thread.
