100 in European years


Shut up, Denmark. You waited longer to give Iceland independence and you still got Greenland and the Faroe Islands (though neither is fighting for full independence at the moment).

But this is the extremely high price you have to pay for being an independent nation who's doing pretty well for itself: You will be teased mercilessly by your Nordic buddies.

Congratulations Finland. May it be several hundred more years.

Americans make fun of Europeans for thinking 100 miles is a long distance.

Then, a few seconds later, Finland sent them to the nearest hospital.
Nothing serious, just some black eyes, a cracked rib, a broken nose, busted lip and swollen cheeks.
He was a on good mood, after all.
EDIT: What? He's still a violent sociopath. He considers beat-ups like that the equivalent of hickeys.

Also, rather than focusing on how young an independent country Finland is as compared to many other countries, Humon could've focused on how precious independence is and how high a price Finns have paid for those 100 years & how much work went to keeping the independence and building the country in the first place. I mean, this had potential of being a touching -
yet entertaining - SATW moment instead of a little joke.

Thanks for saving Finland from getting facial cramps. He's simply not used to all that smiling.

"American Football of the North"? I'm confused by this. Does this mean that roughly a third of commercials involve Norway in some way, and everyone is expected to love Norway in some way shape or form, and compared to other countries people that like Norway tend to be portrayed such that loving Norway is the defining characteristic of their lives?

Because that's what American football is like over here. Every other sport is like "yay, basketball!" or "all right, baseball!", but it's always, always, ALWAYS "FOOTBAAAAAAAAAAAAALL!!!!! WOOHOO!" *cue the music* to the point where I'm pretty sure my own house is the only place where I'm safe from it. Football is love, football is life. Foots for the foot god, balls for his ball throne.

Finland -- an undeveloped, poor country divided for decades by a brutal civil war grew into one of the most secure, happy and successful countries in the world in a span of mere 100 years -- that's impressive.

There should be another one, where other countries that got their independence from Russia would react. They probably would be a bit more... amazed.

100 years of independence - and they even fought off the Soviet Union to keep that independence. Can any of you others claim to have done that? No! Congratulations Finland - don't let your "friendly neighbours" talk you down!
