The picture looks like a home of some sort, during winter, probably in Scandanavia, the upper north of the US (Minnesota)/Alaska or Canada and the Northern Lights in the background

Sorry, I have no idea wtf you are going on about.

The picture is about true Finland, sauna and a hole in the ice.

As for the google translate, nobody's perfect.

It was a joke in Finland decades ago. But these Ylläs and Pallas are ski resorts in Lapland. Ylläs being more modern, easy going plase and Pallas more traditional. It is like you start thinking in Pallas, you already score in Ylläs. ;)

Not necessarily true.

While I have lived in warm and sunny Florida for the last 17+ years, I am familiar with winter.

Chicago has had bad winters. I have been outside when the temperature was minus 28 degree Fahrenheit (not much different than the coldest recorded temperature in Helsinki -34.3 C/-29.74F)

When we were children my brother, sister and my cousins would spend our winter school break at my grandfather’s 2nd home northwest of Chicago. We would spend our time sledding down the hills for hours , and I would go out on the frozen lake with my grandfather ice fishing.

When I was in grade school my school/church youth group made several trips to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in northern Minnesota. We spent a week there each time canoeing though the lakes and rivers and camping in the wilderness. One of the highlights was seeing the Northern Lights.

When I was in high school I made several trips to northern Wisconsin to go downhill skiing.

Winter can be fun, but probably moreso when you are a child than when you are an adult. ;-)

:P

Given the topic of this thread, I'm guessing Nero is trying to tell us those are the Finnish shitholes?

Only problem I have with northern climates is that the winter lasts too fucking long. I can take the brutal cold and enjoy it just as much as an fucking eskimo, but after 3 months of cold, short daylight, snow, ice, sleet it gets annoying.

I actually enjoy the bitter cold and snow. It is fun for about a month or two. But anywhere that shit tends to happen in sufficient quantities to really enjoy it, it seems to come in around late October early November (or even earlier) and doesn't leave until April . . . and then the mud season: like mother Earth shat herself . . .
