Mixed Feelings


Mixed Feelings

Some different relationships between the Scandinavian countries. I tried to pick three that each would have a different country in centrum.

The first is how things goes whenever talks of a united Scandinavia comes up. Sweden and Norway starts fighting, while Denmark cries in the middle.

The second is about how Swedes and Danes seem to be fighting over who the Norwegians like best.

And the last is the result of history because the last wars to be fought within Scandinavia was Denmark vs. Sweden and Norway vs. Sweden. Sweden won both and thus became very unpopular, which can still be felt.

@MarcusZMonkey: No. Just no. The Finns invented the word "molotov cocktail" after Vyacheslav Molotov, who claimed that Russian bomb planes were delivering food (Molotov bread baskets). They naturally needed something to wash down all that bread.

The actual device was first used in the Spanish Civil War, which predated the Winter War by three years. While The Spanish Civil War isn't well known today, at the time it was studied by every military with the slightest ambition. Additionally, the war was joined by some Finnish volunteers, that later returned home as veterans.
So no, Finland didn't invent the molotov cocktail by any means... but they did refine the design and took its use to a much higher level.
