Twisted society

It depends on the society you live in. When i grow up in East Germany all the athlets were heroes for us and we were fucking proud of every gold medal at the oplympics etc. In some countrys the success of the athlets is still very important for the national identity.

Nowadays in western countrys sport has become less important. A few sportsmen are still national "heroes" tho. Michael Schumacher, Jan Ullrich, some of the ski jumpers etc. Also athlets who win at the olympic games become often very popular in germany for example.

Yeah, I guess it is mostly Finland then, we suck at many sports but kick ass in information technology.

How do you know Finland kick ass in IT?

They got any IT olympic medals?

Nope, but I don't think that it is anykind of problem, becuse, u know ... there is no such thing as IT Olympics, it's just a figment of your imagination.

It is widely known that Finland is full of IT companies, and we have Nokia one of the biggest players if no the biggest player in the cellphone game, all of our universities are studying new information and communications technologies. Our largest industries are Steel, Paper and IT, I just don't know what more I can tell you to make you happy.
