What are Finn-Crisp crackers? Are they something I can just go buy at my local grocery establishment? Or must I import them?

I am leaning towards Goalies, but it's tough to say until I try some of those crackers.

The female figure skaters from Finland have to be in contention -- at least an honorable mention.

I think Finland's best exports is envy and low self-esteem.

That was during the shadow of the Soviet Union. I think the new Finns have grown to appreciate their lifestyle and the state of their union.

Lapin Kulta IV is actually drinkable. But the III is total piss. Even compared to all the Baltic beers I've been drinking (to be fair, Latvia and Estonia both have some pretty good beers, but there are a lot of bad ones as well. I don't know about Lithuania, never drank beer there).

My favorite Finnish beer is probably Karhu III or Koff IV (A). I travel so much between the two countries (Estonia and Finland) that I've had time to taste most of them. I also like Olvi and Sandels.

Ah, spending my time in Helsinki, I often go to the park next to the HIFK arena before the games because some figure skaters are practicing their jumps and stuff there.

I once saw two of them hugging each other. It was great.
