Peggy Hill said the city of Phoenix is a testament to man's arrogance. I feel like the same is true for all of Northern Europe.

"Welcome to Finland! Now remember for half of the year you will suffer from Vitamin D deficiency and get depressed. You can take vitamin supplements, but we can't do anything about the second thing."

"Wow. How did the ancestors deal with this?"


Also this is not an opportunity to plug that other phone operating systems exist, those are irrelevant to this

When trying to attach files in any app, the "Recent files" list that opens is just always empty (or the built-in gallery in apps like Telegram or WhatsApp), and taking screenshots doesn't work ("Couldn't save screenshot")

Sweden and Finland are so much more similar than what the stereotypes make it seem like.

Like, if you think of pure stereotypes, Sweden is like some happy utopia in the countryside in summer with meatballs and IKEA, while Finland is a rainy, dark depressing empty field where people drink and commit various acts of violence.

In reality, when you go from Sweden to Finland it's like going to some parallel universe: everything is exactly the same except they speak a weird foreign language.


Apparently someone in Russia built a fake Finnish border and charged migrants over 10 000 € to take them across

I can't get over how the first high-speed train in Germany was called the "Flying Hamburger"

planning to travel to FOSDEM and back using only trains and one ferry, because of reasons

last few times I've been going by FOSDEM and CCC events by flying, but I just realized an Interrail 3-day pass can get me pretty far without flying

Still, you see pages and maps listing high-speed rail systems around the world categorizing Pendolino as high-speed while IC isn't.

In Finland, the only difference between "high-speed rail" and normal trains is that one of them is called "high-speed" while the other one isn't.

Seriously. There's 75 whole kilometers of track (Kerava–Lahti) in the whole country where the "high-speed" Pendolino trains are even allowed to go faster than their InterCity counterparts, and even then they only go 20 km/h faster. At other times they go exactly as fast, cost as much, and stop at the same stations. And they're more cramped.
