They love their throw rugs to an obsession.
When I was there I saw the best looking tall, blond Finn on his sailboat washing his throw rug in his swim trunks . Hot furry blond!

Finns are not "greasy" in the slightest.
Pickle breath -- or maybe more accurately brine-y breath -- is common.

Why are fire engines red?
Because there are 12" in a foot.
A foot is also a ruler
Queen Elizabeth is a ruler
Queen Elizabeth is also a ship
Ships sail the seven seas
The seas have fishes
The fishes have finn
The Finns fought the Russians
And that's why fire engines are always red
Because they're always rushin'

Finns are Scandinavians.
The Finns I know are terrific. They're liberal politically, humane, very interested in the environment, and gay-friendly (and they have been so for decades).
However, their movies & food leave a little to be desired, though they do have some foods that are terrific. Helsinki is a great city.
The Finnish language is virtually impossible to learn, though. IMPOSSIBLE. Try to learn it. You'll see. It's the hardest language on earth.

[quote]In Finland swimsuits, towels, or any other garments are rarely worn in the sauna. Families often go to the sauna together, which is not considered eccentric since family saunas are an old tradition. In these private saunas swimsuits or towels are never worn. In public saunas it is more common that men and women go to the sauna separately, although people of both sexes may sometimes bathe together, for example in student clubs. Still, saunas are not associated with sex and sexuality. Quite the contrary, historically saunas have been the most sacred places after the church, and most houses which could afford to build a sauna had one. In older times women also used to give birth in the sauna because it was a warm and sterile environment. Children were occasionally born in saunas still in the beginning of the 20th century. Ancient Finns even believed saunas were inhabited by spirits.

The Finns are NOT Scandinavian. They're Nordic. There is a difference to us.
There are many Swedish Finns, thanks to Sweden's occupation of Finalnd, but the culture is different in ways not well understood who lump us all together.

Finland is not considered to be part of Scandinavia, either by Finns or by Scandinavians. I am half-Finn and have spent enough time visiting relatives to be very fond of the country. Politically progressive, ecologically-minded and technologically savvy, Finland is terrific. The language is difficult but anyone under 40 speaks English pretty well (required in school beginning about 4th grade). I know of no other country where the president was an active demonstrator for gay and lesbian rights prior to her (Tarja Halonnen)election. Finland is the only country that repaid its debt to the U.S. following WWII.

I thought Scandinavians were Norwegians, Swedes, and Danes. Finns were called "Nordic" upthread, but I am not sure what that is.
Estonians, Latvians and Lithuanians are Baltic.

R39 the Nordic Region is what is everyone in Europe knows is Scandinavia plus the non-Scandinavian nations Denmark and Sweden once occupied. We are united by our shared history, whereas as Scandinavians have commonalities among our language, culture and deeper historical ties.
Finland and Iceland deserve respect for independent cultures, never fully assimilated, that don't have Scandinavian features.
Not hard to understand.

While Finland did associate with Nazi Germany during WWII, it never signed an axis agreement and was more or less forced into some arrangement in order to preserve its independence from Russia, as no other country was coming to its aid. Finland only gained its independence from Russia in 1917 as a result of Germany's defeat of Russia during WWI. Stalin was keen to regain Finland and the Finns would do anything to maintain their independence. This could have been predicted given the outcome of the Winter War (1939-1940), where Finland was willing to sign a peace treaty with Stalin surrendering the province of Karelia in order to maintain their independence as a country. Finns hate Russians. Period. Cannot be overstated. Beyond the long stretches of occupation prior to 1900, prior to WWI the Red Army had a nasty habit of showing up at Finnish homes in the middle of the night and taking any able-bodied Finnish men with them.

Hungarian and Finnish are very distantly related, there is no mutual intelligibility, and no closeness in the DNA.
But remember this about most east European languages: they were mostly formalized and standardized in the last two hundred years. Thus, whatever ancient roots they might possess have been straitjacketed by the romantic nationalism of the early 1800s.

A hundred years ago native Swedish speakers were a much higher proportion of the Finnish population. The people have adopted the Finnish language as a symbol of national pride.

Extremely big penises. Almost no body hair. Very good at ice fishing. Decent at waxing skis. Solid diesel mechanics. Weak air force. OK Navy.
The women DO NOT shave all the hair on their pussies. I don't know why. Great bodies. Very open and healthy sexually, not like America. Not into anal at all, but take pride in their oral. Doggy style is by far the most popular position. They hardly do anything else. Group sex is common.
A high standard of living.

Also: The men love to jack off. They do it in groups after a good day of fishing. Total alcaholics, but not as bad as the Pols. Anal sex is normal among men. It doesnt make you "gay". Its done in a clean way with good humor. I once pounded a Finn for several hours and then he brought the days catch back to his wife and kids. He was like "we had a good shag". Its not this whole DL thing with all the drama. Very evolved people.
The women are very open sexually. They prefer multiple men at once. Very few adult women it seemed had never had a threesome. The downside is that no women shave their pussies bald. I dont know why, since its so common here in the US. Odd. But, they make up for it with their emphasis on cock sucking. Its like the national womens sport over there. Very athletic and thorough in their dick sucking.
