    Well, you certainly sound like you had some.

    -Buses are on time
    -Half the people complain there's immigrant bus drivers now, a change to what we had 20 years ago
    -if someone drinks some candy & alcohol cocktail mix and dies, the first idea everyone has is how to regulate the damn thing
    -the bureaucracies work almost exactly as told to every minute detail
    -if there's a situation that existing rules don't cover, people extrapolate from existing rules and demand a new rule to be created
    -people maintain an efficient working schedule day to day, extremely low key, unless if it's an aspect of the work to be seen and noticed
    -efficiency drives everything
    -people are generally assumed not to waste things unnecessarily, not to break the law, and very surprisingly, that works for the most part, even though this is capitalistic and consumerist society
    -if the government rips you off, you still pay your taxes, go complain on the interwebs how things should change, eventually noticing that the collective bunch of you won't have enough guts for change
    -if someone organizes a loud party, your first thoughts center around the decibels, plus if there was a proper permit applied for the party
    -government officials won't take bribes, but they won't take sensible reasoning, either
    -the first person to be quoted in almost any news story for an unusual happening, is a government official
    -changes of 1% to age old shit make the national headlines
    -half the people think what can be done to regulate themselves
    -people maintain a stoic character for the most, but loosen up when drunk - more than people in other countries
    -ranking of #2 in international rankings for governmental stability

    I'll tell more stories later. Or, better yet, you tell national tales of type land XYZ.
    Why the lights on the roads are on when it is sunshine? All days long.
    Not only in the summer. They were on today, too.

    I have seen this spectacle only in Finland. Other people would put a stop to it.
    Not the Finns.

    Is it because of the stoicism? It is unstoic to complain, so everybody pretends they do not see the lights that should not be there.
    Yes, I think it is.
    And that is why they refuse to give morphin to the people who are dying of cancer.
    Let them suffer. It would only please the dear Lord.
    And the sufferer does not ask for painkillers. That would be complaining. Very unstoic.

    I wanted to make a title that shows entirely in the main page Couldn't find anything sensible, so I put what we have now. Countries aren't types, yes.

    The land who's inhabitants are closest to cro-magnon, genetically (if you would believe).

    So you live in Vantaa, now? Have you used the buses in the last few weeks?
    I use the bus every day to get to school or to Tikkurila to shop. I only use the train to get to Helsinki. The buses arent -exactly- on time, but within 2 minutes of the posted time at the stops.

    I asked, 'cos I've been doing a research project for the bus lines. I might have handed you a survey form in some of the buses in Tikkurila or the whereabouts
