country located in the north of Europe, wedged between Russia
, and tends to experience particularly cold winters. Finland is also known as 'The Land of a Thousand Lakes', due to much of the country being lakes. The main tongue of the country is Finnish (surprisingly enough), but a minority also speak Swedish. The country's capital is Helsinki (located in the south of Finland). The country is well known for a variety of things, including but not limited to: fucking
bands (such as Mors Principium Est, Amorphis, Wintersun, Kalmah, Norther, Apocalyptica, Children Of Bodom
, Ajattara, Turisas, Ensiferum, Omnium Gatherum, Insomnium + loads more), rally drivers, ice hockey players, alcoholic beverages (such as 'Finlandia' Vodka), and locals tending to have the ability to down just about anything alcoholic with ease.
All Finnish people I have spoken to have been generally awesome, laid-back, hilarious metal heads
. They also tell me Finnish beer
, I have yet to try some.
Finland is the place you want to be.
Also home of great rally drivers and people who can drink pretty much anyone under the table.
The metal capital of the world.
Finntroll, Moonsorrow, Children of Bodom, Wintersun, Apocalyptica, Nightwish, Stratovarius...dammit, Finland kicks ass!
The country that invented malotov cocktails then with skis rifles and malotov cocktails kicked the ass of a country 100 times their size. Russia got owned 8 casualties to 1.
Holy shit did Russia get its ass kicked by Finland again?
A country that is NOT a part of either Sweden or Russia. The home of the greatest people on the face of the earth. And of Matti Nykänen but lets not talk about that...
Been to Finland? Whatland?
Country situated in Northern Europe in between Sweden and Russia. 2/3 of the country is just lakes. National language is Finnish (of the Finno-Ugric family of languages) although a small minority also speak Swedish. Famous for its typically tall, blond haired people, famous motor racing champions (such as Mika Hakkinen, Keke Rosberg and Tomi Makinen), Santa Claus (supposedly), good bands such as Children Of Bodom, Impaled Nazarene and Nightwish (fronted by the stunning Tarja Turunen), not so great but strangely more popular bands such as HIM and The Rasmus, Nokia, saunas, high suicide rates and getting very drunk.
Finland is a cool country.
Home of friendly people and good hockey players. Everyone I have met from Finland has been cool. The country is actually pronounced in Finnish Suomi (god I hope I spelled that right).
What's the closest thing to a fish's asshole? A Fin! (Told to me by a fellow from Finland!)
I believe Michael Palin said it best: "Finland, Finlad, Finland, the country where I want to be, pony trekking or camping; or just watching T.V. Finland, Finland, Finland.
It's the country for me."
"Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I quite want to be,
Your mountains so lofty,
Your treetops so tall.
Finland, Finland, Finland.
Finland has it all."
You're so near to Russia,
So far from Japan,
Quite a long way from Cairo,
Lots of miles from Vietnam
