    You love celebrating those who disagree with you politically getting killed. I’ve never heard of such a thing except on extremist boards like this.

    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    It's easy to not be afraid of tigers when you're sitting in your living room watching a television program about tigers. When you're in the jungle where the tigers are, it's quite a different story.

    Also, Finnish people are not prepared to have strangers walk up to them and start chatting. They don't seem to care for that at all. It's important to let them know you are an American right off, then they can manage to barely tolerate you when you do crazy stuff like laugh in public or smile at people you don't know.

    This is true. We do not talk to strangers, we just go to sauna naked with them.

    Unless we're drunk. Then we talk more. However, when we get too drunk, we stab our spouses in a jealous rage.

    I want to experience Rovaneimi which is right on the arctic circle and is the official home of Santa Claus and don't care how cold it is...I may go in the summer time though so it's not 346º below zero.

    Logistically, It is much, much easier than it has ever been. I have actually had a recurring dream about driving to the end of the earth since I was a kid. It wasn't until a couple of years ago that I realized that Tuk may be that place.

    Cass, it can happen anywhere. But I was in a place that has been a sh*thole FOREVER. If you've lived in hell Cass, anywhere is a step up. I guess I have a different perspective than most. I've lived here for over 40 years and take nothing for granted. I'm thankful for the little things that most people don't give a second thought (running water, air conditioning, toilet paper). Ok, maybe not toilet paper anymore. Some of these things my friends and family still in that country don't have access to. A car? You'd have to be rich to own one there. Or a crook.

    I feel guilty sometimes that I was lucky enough to be able to come here and make something out of myself. This country gave me that opportunity. Don't get me wrong. I worked for everything that I got. Harder than most because I'm a foreigner. But I didn't complain because I didn't want anything handed to me. No freebies. No food stamps. No government aid. NADA. And I wouldn't want it any other way.

    If the Dems get their way and gain power in the Whitehouse and the Senate I am actually afraid of where we are headed as a nation. You have vocal minority mouthpieces like AOC and these idiots in charge are letting her and people like her dictate what the policy will be. Ilhan Omar wants to turn this country into the same sort of Somalian $hithole she escaped from.

    Thanks Fish. Like I said, this country is not perfect. I think the two party system divides the people. Hell, it divides families. Too often, you are so blindly biased to your own party that you can't see (or refuse to see) the other's POV. The health care system leaves a lot to be desired. Elderly care is severely lacking. No place is perfect. But some are infinitely better than others.

    I'd rather not say Corbi. I know it's ridiculous but I am still paranoid to speak out against my former country 40 YEARS LATER. There was a reason why we left that godforsaken place (beyond what I've stated) that I don't care to divulge. Even in this seemingly insignificant forum. But I will tell you this. We take a lot for granted in this country. For some people it's because it's all they've ever known. Young kids who feels entitled. Older folks who should know better.

    I urge everyone to take a step back, specially now with this chaos all around us, and take a long, hard look at your life. What you've done, what you have, your family, your job, your health. You may find that you're doing ok after all.

    In America, April showers bring May flowers. In Finland, April showers bring freezing rain, misery, suffering and death.

    The highlight of a Finnish persons day seems to be sitting around in a sauna staring at the floor.


    Also, Finnish people are not prepared to have strangers walk up to them and start chatting. They don't seem to care for that at all. It's important to let them know you are an American right off, then they can manage to barely tolerate you when you do crazy stuff like laugh in public or smile at people you don't know.
    Also, Finland makes the best sniper weapon system in the world. .338 Lapua. BOOM.
