    Might want to find a better video source, if that’s not available even in Finland.

    It’s easier for Finland to keep an airport open during a snowy winter, than for an American to pronounce ‘Helsinki’ or ‘Vantaa’ decently :-P

  • ***infinndel the jenkki dogg***

    @7…THANX for the great video link! ;)

  • winter (Still alive… I think)

    the war was lost, the snow won, all the money ended last autumn, it served to pay the endless vacations to the politicians, those polluters.

    Has anyone heard of this?

    More than 600 Finns, with just basic knowledge of French, hired to work in DisneyParis as receptionists, cleaners,ticket vendors, shop assistants etc.

    Well, well, how come the French hire Finns with just basic French to do these jobs, but the Finns do not hire foreigners with basic Finnish skills to do these same jobs?

    See, the French, and the rest of the world DO NOT DISCRIMINATE AS MUCH AS THE FINNS!

  • rumpelstilzchen

    @winnie#18: So we get to keep all the oil? Is that a promise?

    Protons are heavy, thus has mass, they can cook you more….

    I did 3 months inside the microwave oven, and was cooked most efficiently.

    At the time I did that, the evil USA had 3 proton centers, now we are aproaching 8.

    A bit surprising, really. First really interesting election for twenty years approaching, Nokia in freefall, Joe Bidet in town, North Africa in flames, and no blog update with a riveting clip of Conan O’Boring playing lifesize Angry Birds with the pigs hiding in Ikea furniture.
    If I didn’t know better, I’d say this blog is losing its edge.

    Thank heavens Winter is still around to amuse us.

  • ***infinndel the jenkki dogg***

    #22…I miss the good ole days when Punter and I would battle it out in endless flame war.I also enjoyed throwing politically incorrect statements,that would upset many people on this blog…it was like
    comedy political mash up and I enjoyed the sport of agitating
    other posters here at F.F.T.
    well maybe I can stimulate some comments here….how about!?

    ***FINLAND IS A RACIST COUNTRY!*** ;-)

  • winter.. not dead yet

    ***FINLAND IS A RACIST COUNTRY!***

    stop it

    FINLAND is a regestered “French White Flag of Surrender” country

    you can’t be RACIST if all you have is a white flag…. you need white hoods and white robes for that….. geeeeeeeeee

  • Nate

    Wrong, Finland has only surrendered when it was under Swedish rule. They abandoned Tavastehus when they saw the Russians coming, built and gave up Sveaborg also to the Russians, they actually lost even Stockholm to a small Russian contingent. It is Sweden the one with the Flag of Surrender.

    And now a question: Is it the “Castle of Finland” or the “Castle of Sweden”? I think the name Sveaborg should be removed. Or maybe anyone can lay claim to it, I’ll call it CastleNate.

  • winter (Still alive… I think)

    True, if you don’t look at History in the last 20 years. You had the opportunity to go into DARFOR and save a Million from the axe. You did not.

    Shall I name more, of your White Flag of surrender opportunities?

  • Nate

    No, Finland is no longer racist, they changed the name of their KKK Market to just K Market… And no, they have neither hoods nor Apu…

Most avid gamers believe that so that you simply can develop to be  http://www.montblancpens-shop.com/montblanc-pens-online.html abundant from the game, you need to hold out each and daily to probably the most element in the day. nicely that isn’t true. There is for the most part a way by which anybody can farm gold  http://www.montblancpens-shop.com/montblanc-meisterstuck/montblanc-mechanical-pencil.html in WoW without any getting to hold out for extra than 30 mins and won’t even need a greatest level character.

    Now i am aware many people nowadays http://www.montblancpens-shop.com/montblanc-boheme.html ask for themselves, why need gold from the game? just one of the finest products should be gained from PvP and raids. getting honest, the abundant people nowadays say that. however the relaxation in the avid gamers http://www.montblancpens-shop.com/montblanc-starwalker.html  need gold to purchase much better provides which they have right up until they obtain a specific thing from the raid, they need gold for consumables, plus in addition they need it for repairs and such.
