OpSec warning, Open Street Map, doxxing, privacy
A warning to folks! It's kind of stating the obvious, but if you use your internet name e.g. Puffinux as your profile name on OpenStreetMap, and make changes to OSM in your local area, people who are aware of you online can pretty quickly figure out your exact location or at the very least your local neighbourhood. Couple this with any pictures you post online, and it isn't hard to build a profile of where you live, where you go, and what you get up to.
Use a name on OpenStreetMap that does not tie you to any other service!

"Also you can't go outside without putting on four layers of clothing or you'll die."
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.
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.
