Scandinavia and the World

Swedes are the stereotypical geeks of the North.

"Perkele" is one of the most common swearwords in Finland. In this case, the only word Finland can (or will) say, and he only say it on very special occasions. I’d sleep with one eye open tonight Sweden...

And it’s probably best you don’t ask what Denmark and Norway are up to. If Sweden isn’t with them and is willing to talk to Finland, it can’t be good. :XD:

I dont know whose interest is try to make Finland looks always like a total idiot.
Here is two comparisons ; Global Information Technology Report 2014 and The World’s Leading Nations for Innovation and Technology 2011.
These comparisons shows that Finland is much more than "neandertahl" :)

The Networked Readiness Index 2014 and the winner was "surprice" Finland :) (link under) . There was 148 countrys in this competition.
"This year marks the 13th edition of the Global Information Technology Report, which provides a comprehensive assessment of networked readiness, or how prepared an economy is to apply the benefits of information and communications technologies (ICTs) to promote economic growth and well-being. Using updated methodology that was introduced in 2012, the report ranks the progress of 148 economies in leveraging ICTs to increase productivity, economic growth and the number of quality jobs".

@udac- Finland is voluntarily mute: he can talk, he just chooses not to.

That one time when your Russian friend beats up his computer with his pipe: "...Ivan, you expect ME to fix THIS?!" (Points to smoking pile of computer pieces)
And the other when your Swiss friend shoots the computer: "VASH, GIVE ME ONE REASON YOU WOULD SHOOT A COMPUTER FOR GOODNESS SAKE?!" (Flails arms in exasperation)
