Finland’s Ministry of Health wants to ban “Share” button from Facebook

Next year is going to be sad year to bars, restaurants and breweries in Finland. The public advertising for alcoholic drinks will be cut down to minimum and the breweries can’t even have can shaped decorations near their place of business.

Also, if you, as an individual, go to their Facebook site and write that “These guys have awesome selection of quality beers!”, you’re committing a crime. Or the company is if it doesn’t remove the comment, I haven’t quite understood who is the one making a crime here.

Anyway, now Finnish ministry of health has been contacting Facebook to ban “share” button in Finland so nobody can share any content from companies that have something to do with alcohol and secretly advertise the alcohol consumption.

Is sunrise avenue popular in finnland too? because they are from there but i got the feeling that no one actually knows them there, while they are one of the most successfull bands in germany

They were popular few years ago but now it seems like the hype has passed in Finland since the rap and reggae have gotten more popular.

I personally have some kind of unexplainable antipathies towards their lead singer so I don’t mind them being not-so-popular at the moment.

Glow-in-the-dark reindeer.There will be about 300 reindeers in Lapland who have their antlers sprayed with glowing paint. People hope it will reduce the car accidents as the drivers notice the animals earlier.
So, if you drive in Lapland and see ghostly pair of glowing antlers on the road they’re probably attached on the whole animal and you should start slowing down.

Finnish man choir Huutajat (The Screaming Men’s Choir) is a choir where nobody sings. Everyone just screams and shouts. Here’s their rather interesting versions of Starspangled Banner and State Anthem of the Russian Federation. 

Minun kultani kaunis on - Finnish song for praising loved one

I saw a mention of this song in the reblog of the mulkvisti -picture and I just had to make another post. There’s an old folk song that is about a loved one and basicly the whole song is about how ugly the loved one is.

The translated lyrics are “My loved one is beautiful even though she/he has narrow bones. She/he has blue eyes but they’re crooked. She has quite a nice mouth but’s it’s wide as two cords. And when I take her/him to the market square even the horses are laughing”.

Listen the song here

It’s clear that Finns care more about the inner beauty, don’t you think?
