Today is also Finnish Independence Day, or Itsenäisyyspäivä, and if you think that sounds funny, imagine what Itsenäisyyspäivä would look like in Cyrillic or sound like in Russian, or what it wouldn’t sound like since Finland would still be a part of Russia.
So we extend our congratulations to Finns everywhere. We also hope Nokia puts up a good fight against Apple, much like the outgunned Finnish Army in 1939, when it taught another tyrannical one-party regime a costly lesson in sniping and arctic warfare.
The next two winners will be drawn Tuesday, December 11, so sign up if you already haven’t. Good luck.
