Things just keep getting better for Lordi - the heavy metal winners of this years Eurovision song contest.

Rovaniemi - their home town and regional capital of Lapland (meaning it's Santa's home town too...) - have decided to name a city square after the band. Lordi Square :p

Finnish Square Named After Lordi (BBC News Online; Monday 22nd May 2006)

Also, a quick question for all of you. I've known a few (a few, but not many) Finns in the past and have this to ask:

"Have you ever met a Finn who is not completely insane?"

I'm really not sure I have...

No, I haven't, either.
Antti, a former colleague is currently travelling all around the world with his girlfriend. They left early May last year...
Previously, he gave up his cushy desk job to work for the UN in Middle East war zones...

Sami, the current Finnish resident at work plays in a really obscure band but is otherwise not that bad. I don't know him that well, though.

My brother has met a few sane Finns. But he's my brother, so I wouldn't really accept his view of sanity.

Personally, I blame the strange daylight.

They're not insane; it's just that they're all space aliens. Finnish behaviour is perfectly normal, where they come from.

I've known a few Finns socially and they were all insane (and very cool with it). I work with a *lot* of Finns at the moment. They are insane too - some are cool but a significant number have sense of humor failure - YMMV.

The only Finn I have ever consciously met was bonkers - in fact there were barking (romford and dagenham)...
