Finnish Sports - Mobile phone throwing141 viewsMobile phone throwing is an international sport that started in Finland in the year 2000. It is a sport in which participants throw mobile phones and are judged on distance or technique. The phones used vary not just between events but between competitors, with any phone that weighs over 220 grams being acceptable. At some events, the choice is down to personal preference from those provided by the event organisers, while others provide only one model of phone.Nov 07, 2020 at 12:24 AM

Sauna, Olut Ja Terva263 viewsThe left sign says "Sauna, Karjala (a finnish beer) and tar".
The right sign says "All you need to stay healthy".

There is actually an old saying in Finland, that goes like "Jos ei viina, terva ja sauna auta, niin tauti on kuolemaksi." meaning "If booze, tar and sauna won't heal you, you'll die." As morbid as it sounds, it was actually meant to encourage a patient, and remind them that most diseases will heal on their own.

You can get beer almost anywhere in Finland184 viewsBut only between 9am and 9pm. And no grocery can sell you anything with more than 4,7% alcohol in it. To fix that we have Alko. Alko is a state owned monopoly with high prices, made even higher by taxes. If you ever need to buy larger quantities of wine or drinks, it easilly comes cheaper to jump on a boat and go shopping in Estonia. Nov 07, 2020 at 12:22 AM
