That’s it, I’m moving to Finland.

When I was last in Finland, I heard this Finnish joke (and I have to say that after four visits to Finland, this is the only Finnish joke I’ve ever heard): a Finn sidled over to me, looking at the floor, and said: “Do you know how you can tell a Finnish extrovert?” I said: “No, how can you tell a Finnish extrovert?” And he says: “When he is talking to you, he looks at your shoes instead of his own.”
