I guess our bogs are the wrong kind? Not acidic enough or something to preserve bodies, I guess. That, or the peat harvesting industry has been real quiet about any archeological finds that would get in the way of good ol' old-school surprise sex of natural resources.

Friendly reminder that the loving VIKINGS of all people were uneasy around finns.

Traditionally finns took a live pig with them in the sauna, as a kind of biologic chronometer while they were drinnking themselves stupid with hallucinogenic reindeer piss.
When the pig fell over, it was time to get out.

This is too awesome not to be true.

Perhaps you too should be more accepting of their cultures


Iku-Turso, ijn poika. Appeared in Donald Duck.



Incidentally, I feel like the english translation doesn't really do justice to the orginal poem.

Although I guess you have a point in that a successful invasion of Finland ultimately nets you, at best, dominion over a few inbred Finns and/or some lovely Finnish bogs.

A poor prize if ever there was one.

Let me axe you just one question.

Fighting a war in Finland is much like interacting with Finns in peaceful situations.

They wont be better at it than you are, but it will still be thoroughly unpleasant for all involved.

all you need to know about finland at war is that 75ish years ago they lost a war against the shoddiest, most incompetent army ever fashioned from a country that couldn't even help its people modernize without getting tens of millions killed

to this day finns still brag about that loss with a twinkle in their eye

Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.

The only time swedish has to deal with finns is on the booze cruise across the sea to buy tax-free alcohol and tobacco. But you are so drunk on that boat and so are they (no kidding) so it's alright.
