Well, I suspect that stems from the fact that we Finns tend to be an insular lot, not caring for the world at large, instead concentrating on our own petty politics and drama. It takes a certain degree of critical thinking, determination and wit to break out of that mindset, and the necessity to learn a different language to communicate effectively with the world at large ensures a capacity for learning and creativity. This all adds up to a much greater chance for a cool person to emerge.

But I digress. Nice to know at least some folks appreciate my scribblings. Unfortunately, after this I need to finish off a couple of mandatory Swedish courses, which are a repugnant stain on the otherwise passable record of the Finnish educational system, that I left hanging. So, no freedom for poor old me. Ain’t I lucky?
