A math guy who lived 4 years in the US in the late 80s, but has lived in Finland the rest of his life.

  • Much of transatlantic misunderstandings originate from the common American belief that Europe is a monoculture as well as the common European belief that the US is a monoculture. Unfortunately, if you point this out at the wrong time you end up standing in the middle of a pissing contest.
