The other night we had a house warming party at our new Kerrostalo in the Helsinki region. Quite a few people turned up early in the evening and we put some music on to get things started. A couple of hours in we noticed the party seemed kind of dead…..no one was really talking and the contrast between this and the party music felt a bit strange. Things picked up a bit later but in the morning my girlfriend (who is a Finn) agreed it could be impossible to tell if everyone was just bored or simply being Finnish….so i made this meme to sum up the feeling as party host (p.s: it was a great party anyway, after alcohol kicked in).
—- Fan submission thanks rosshvidsten! That’s awesome!

Kuulin tänään radiosta: “Suomi on paikka, johon Pohjois-Atlantin matalapaineet tulevat kuolemaan.”

"Finland is the place where North Atlantic atmospheric depressions come to die." Kinda appropriate, eh? :D:DD

In Finland when someone is a bit messed up in the head we say they don’t have all the moomins in the valley and I think that’s beautiful.

We also say that “they don’t have all the Ismo’s in the Casino” (referring to Salatut Elämät -soap opera character with gaming addiction)

The Mystery of JFK’s puukko

No one knows where Kennedy’s Iisakki Järvenpää came from or what became of it, if it was lost or stolen after the assassination, but it is told that he used it to open letters at his desk. Many in Finland and elsewhere believe it was given to him by President Urho Kekkonen, but as a private person since there is no record of it on official gift lists.
