I´ve rarely heard people saying their opinion of Finland,..and some people don`t even know where it is..

so I`m curious to hear your opinions of Finland.

If I had to some things that comes first to my own mind, when I hear the word " Finland ",.those things would be ;

1. Ievan Polkka (= Ieva´s Polka ) sung by Finnish folk song band " Loituma " ( and written by Eino Kettunen)
2. Sauna
3. heavy Metal
4. Lapland
5. Cold and looong winter.
6. Muumins

I've been there to see the awesome Finnish metal band Nightwish in concert. it was brilliant.

öö,.you mean like " I will be " ? we do have that.

in finnish it´s " (minä) tulen olemaan "

or if you say " I`ll come there "

in finnish = " (minä) tulen sinne " ( well it´s same as " I come there ", if I`d wrote it in english )

Oh Yeah, I just saw a video on youtube about Finland and it said it had no future tense, but I also hear a lot of Finnish people know Swedish too!

Home of the great Sibelius who wrote amazing music back in the 19th century. I hear that there is never a dry eye when Finns listen to Finlandia.

*looks it up* So it IS in Europe.

Well that's my summary, but let me ask, can you name every state in the United States? And what would be the answer of others near you? No? Then isn't it fair that others don't know every nation in the area of Europe? (If you answer "yes", then why on earth did you need to learn that?). Much less knowing every nation in the world? That's difficult to have such a library of information like that when you have no need to apply it. I design games. Does it help my line of work in anyway to know where the nation of Gabon is? *looks it up*
