Now, now. Let's not start a global war over global warming. Writing off scientific studies as politics very quickly turn things into, umm, politics. And we can't have that, can we.

And how did you think the Finns do their typing?? Every keyboard in Finland comes with its own cat.

Careful. There's Yanks lurking about here and they may raise a great ballyho about spelling sledge correctly.

There is no confusion...I know of no other spelling for that thing I use for putting stakes in the ground.

I know the taste of that dishwater-from-hell all too well. I unfortunately have friends who are rather fond of it, and I seem to suppress how godawful it tastes every time I'm drinking.

My cousin just asked me if I need a resupply of Salmiakki kossua... I like Salmiakki, not too fond of Kossu however.
