Proof that Finland is the best country

Who sleeps shall awake, greeting the shadows from the sun
Who sleeps shall awake, looking through the window of our lives
Waiting for the moment to arrive...
Show us the silence in the rise,
So that we may someday understand...

The link has fallen foul of the word censor list. Whoops.

The utter look of disgust on that pastor's face is because he's thinking "your little tuft of hairs on your chinny chin chin can't match my full on beard sonny boy."

My Irish heritage prevents me from placing fault on other countries for supporting the Nazis, but my Armenian heritage allows me to speak out against genocide.

Also which country was the first country to grant women suffrage, HMMMM?


NEW ZEALAND.

Sweden. But then they took it away a few years later so it DOESN'T COUNT or something

I thought this was about the Newsweek article that ranked countries based on things such as citizen's wealth, education, and health and Finland was ranked first overall.

Yes, but that classification failed to include the fact that Finland is the most MEHTUL country on earth, so that entire study is essentially worthless (though the end result is the same).

One little note though-Finland was in a very bad spot economically immediately after World War Two, being defeated by the Soviet military, and decades later, at the end of the Cold War, were again in a very bad spot until Nokia came to the rescue. Findland may be doing well now, but based on past history things can go very wrong for them at a moment's notice.

Also wait a pantsless minute, I just looked it up and while Finland did fight with Germany against the Soviet Union (who they were already fighting with anyway, and they only joined with Germany cause they couldn't get support from Sweden or Britain), they also fought against GERMANY in 1945 in the Lapland War to expel the German officers. Calling them bottom-line Nazi supporters is erroneous at best.
