I don't get why it's so much more ridiculous in Finland. Is Finland the opposite of Florida?

The main killer was paroled from prison on 1 murder conviction and 2 attempted murder convictions.

Good job there Finland.

someguy945: I don't get why it's so much more ridiculous in Finland. Is Finland the opposite of Florida?

Actually, it kind of is. Finns tend to dislike confrontation so much that if you talk to one on a bus, he'll get off at the next stop. I'm not talking about threatening him -- asking him the time will do.

I'll leave this here before people start making lots of uniformed evaluation of the situation.

Yikes. When does shooting a car in a drive-thru even begin to sound like a good idea?

This is what happenes when you have a gun-fellatiating culture. When everyone has to carry a big gun (you know it's to compensate for a small you-know-what), then killings are inevitable and common. If you could move pass the cave-man attitude of solvng your problems with violince, then you will see you dont need guns.

This happened in my hometown. The second car was pissed that the second car was taking too long, it escalated and someone got killed.

Worst part? It wasn't their fault. That restaurant ALWAYS takes twice as long as any fast food restaurant in the city, minimum. And it never sped up after that either....

Yeah don't fark with finland. Seems like I read about the Finnish being descendants of the Huns? no?

The polish weren't so lucky with invaders. But at at least they didn't lay down and lick their nuts. Got a bad rap with all the Pollack jokes 'cos they fought against tanks and guns with sticks, rocks, and pitchforks.

How do you get a one-armed Pollack (hope I'm spelling it right and not making references to some artist) to drop his pitchfork?

Wave at him.

arr aarrr ar. humor.

yeah but his victims were from Finland so they had it coming.

There were so many things wrong with this headline when I saw it on CNN.

McDonalds, in Finland?
Guns, in Finland?
Guns at McDonalds?

OK, the last one I understand.

Christ, I wouldn't f*ck around with the Finns. Push too hard, and they'll push back. I get the feeling that beneath that thin veneer of velvet politeness is a steel hand ready to biatch slap their enemies ruthlessly.
 
2010-07-06 07:30:57 PM  
Basically the only weird thing is that a repeat offender was released on parole.
Then again he got his hands on an illegal semi-automatic faster than a cheseburger at McD's.

Lifetime for murder equals 4-5 years in finnish prison, it seems now.

1) They have guns in Finland?
2) What kind of convertible holds 4 dudes and 1 pregnant chick?

desertfool: Guns, in Finland?

zepplinrules: 1) They have guns in Finland?

Finland has 32 legally owned firearms per 100 residents. Iraq has 36. The US has 90. So, they've got a long way to go before they catch up, they they definitely likes them some guns over in Finland.

I stopped reading at that point. How is Finland supposed to defend itself against pushy kings of England with only 32 guns? Please limit your answer to 6 words or less...

No mention of alcohol or intoxication of any kind?

I doubt anyone but the drivers were sober, and then possibly only the pregnant chick.
