Sauna for a king

Sauna for a king

A Burger King in Finland has a sauna in it because of course it does.

All the American fastfood chains had to make some major changes to their recipes to be allowed into the Nordic countries. Burger King definitely isn't the worst offender. So be warned if you ever visit a Nordic country and craves fastfood: it's more healthy here but also more expensive because not only are the restaurants expected to use better ingredients but they also have to pay their employees proper wages.

Star Invaders

Star Invaders

Usually there's so much light pollution in big cities that people can't see the stars at night, so when they experience major power failures and suddenly see the Milky Way for the first time they have no idea what it is. In the US people even tend to call the police on the Milky Way.

Stumbled across a Finnish site selling mobile saunas. Finns will indeed bring/build saunas everywhere, even war zones.
