Let's see how smart DACers really are smile

What do these things have in common?

-------------------------------------------------------------


- Major Larry Alan Thorne, US Army Special Forces, Vietnam war hero.

- Linux, an operating system some call "the window shaker" and the best O/S ever made.

- One of the few governments in the world that've managed to hold on to a considerably clean democracy + allowed women to vote earliest in the world, right after New Zealand of course.

- Max Payne, first person shooter best-seller, some even call it "revolutionary".

- Xylitol, sweet bubblegum that doesn't contain any sugar or fat, but is in fact healthy for you and your teeth. Made of a sweet liquid collected from birch trees.

- Sauna, a hot steam-bath taken in a small, usually wooden, room in temperatures between 60 and 100 degrees Celcius.

- A military force with a long and deserving history in UN Peace Keeping work and staff that has been ranked as the best in the world several times in a row.

- Jean Sibelius, a composer ranked amongst the 12 best ever walk on Earth.

Well, this one's quite easy, but I think some of our more "ingrown" friends, who haven't ever left their home state might have a little trouble icon_mrhappy

I could say the same about you, atoga, you just channel your frustration at me, because you're so dumb that you don't even know the answer to such a simple... well, you can't really call it a puzzle, but yeah, puzzle.

No one forced you to write in this thread, save it if you don't have anything else to say than blow off your angst steam.

Oh for chrissake, Kash, quit masturbating your collective national ego. Yeah, Finland has done some great things, yeah Americans can be dense. Drop it. Do you see me or atoga parading the various good things that Canada has managed in our history? Do you see Megatron or Ray bragging about how great the UK is? No! Why? Because nobody gives a damn. If your country is so goddamn great, we already know it. Viva Finland and shit, but this topic is just asking for trouble.

I dunno, I still think constitutional democracy, the transistor, McDonald's, and the ability to grind entire countries to paste for less than 1% of your GDP are cooler.

OMG TEHY"RE F1NN1SH! I hate to shatter your ego Kash, but I kind of picked that up...

Now do you want me to go around flaunting how good Canada is? OH, and Canada has a *far* better peacekeeping record than Finland. We're #1 in that area.

Haha, I guess that pin blew that balloon called "your ego", Spazmo! Hey, Canada's ok as well, don't get me wrong icon_wink

But then again atoga, how many peace keeping areas/groups are canadians leading at the moment? Yup, that's what I thought. Big parts of problematic Kosovo and Lebanon are currently under finns.

Hammer, his real name is Lauri Törni, if you didn't get it.

------------


But you guys are right. I'll drop this stuff now. Finland is a small country and all and without raising the "nationalistic voice" in every turn nobody would know about us. And it seems I've been raising my voice a dozen times too many in these forums.

Sorry, mates. I'll quit now. But if you have something to ask about those goofy pictures I found, blast away.

I considered that, but then again it would've been too obvious... Or do most of the people still think Nokia comes from Japan? If that's the case, then my work isn't done yet!! :p


I've been trying to promote Cameron, but they're just too good in Soccer, so there's no need - everyone knows them already.





Yeah, right.
