I also like how they combined Belgium and Switzerland into one!

OUCH!

That one really, really hurt!

Usually when it is recognized that Finland is ignored it calls for a national emergency and the cabinet is summoned up expecting a plan by Prime Minister on how to deal with the issue.

I have heard about a story from Capri, Italy. A Finnish woman and his Italian Stallion are looking the sun setting down to the West. The woman says in her native language "katso merta".

:lol:

Freudian slip, NOT. :lol:

In Finnish language the third personal pronoun does have gender. When I am little "tired", I often make the same mistake.

And why in the world the logical choice for the common white man lingo can not be Finnish language; written as pronounced, not need for the little words like in, on, at, etc... All this information can be implied by inflection.

Though I more into formal languages; who says that one can not express anger in C++?

So it goes.

When I've asked native speakers of ANY language ... how to pronounce words in their native language ... they invariably say "pronounced as written" ...

Like "Smolensk" ... Pronounced "Smahl - yensk" ...

:D
