    Clooney is too composed for Jalonen's bohemian elegance. It's got to be Gary Oldman. Tom Hardy plays Morko The Hun Anttila. Brad Pitt can try be Kaapo Kakko.

    Natalie Portman can be a "Jacqueline Hughes" character.

    I'd like to give a big shout out to the team when they stepped out of the plane today, most of them did a "Pasi Nurminen" and "stumbled" :laugh::laugh:

    BTW, not sure this is a good idea, and it may not win Palme d'Or in Cannes, but if some movie maker picks it up, it should be properly done and include a digitized Paul Newman as a Minnesotan grandpa "Urho Kakkonen" who teaches young Kaapo physical play with the help of three mysterious grand-uncles of Finnish-Swedish Hansson heritage. Young Kaapo faces all kinds of adversity only to find out he and Jacqueline were best friends after all. The plot thickens with Kaapo and "Donna Cherry" (Mila Kunis in a fancy dress) skating off into a New York/New Jersey sunset. "Morko" laughs and wrecks the nearest hockey rink just for good measure and climbs up the Empire State Building. The dramatic movie ends.

    He doesn't look like a 15 years old when he plays.

    Hmmm... What about Justin Timberlake? He looked like 25 years old in In Time, didn't he? Justin Bieber probably declines because sour Canada.

    Actually that equates 17.5 mm. You probably meant 175 cm or 1.75 m. With Anttila it's easier to say he's just short of 1 km or 1,000 m.

    Kool Aid is a drink Jim Jones and his associates gave to their followers, Peoples Temple cult members in the jungle of Guyana in 1978 while engaging in a glorious mass suicide-murder. So, yeah, it has become a "meme" once known as a saying since then.

    We all drink some kind of mixes of some kind of kool aids through our lives. The more we are aware when and what the better, but that doesn't mean we should not drink such delusional or mind-expanding and liberating beverages at all. Quite the opposite. Life is a kool aid and we drink it.

    One little stretch of springlike ice hockey, a tournament of a couple of weeks long showcasing Mr. Stretch (Mörkö's other nick name, given by Steve Kariya, lol; aka Lempaala's Gentle Giant) for the people and suddenly we have a new national icon, Mörkö (from the Moomin character of the same name: Groke) emerged from the general obscurity and anonymity to become a household name on everyone's lips, a public figure enjoying enormous popularity in Finland currently. That is the power of this annual post-wappu ice hockey celebration domestically when things just and simply happen to click. The game, the results and the (very Finnish down-to-earth, diligent, humble, congenial) personality (in a sense archetypical one, insert here a fitting fictional character (I alluded earlier to Hound of Game of Thrones as a "gentle giant", but we should be able to identify Mörkö's "real" correspondent, the respective character among such works as Unknown Soldier or even The Brothers Karamazov if only possible).

    That is the secondary but in a sense also most important and lasting legacy of these games and victories.

    Upon reflection, as a Tolstoi fan, I understood Loffer's point. I agree.

    I'll bring up and add a sometimes ridiculously glorified and sometimes ignored factor, gene superstition, from some silly study:

    To identify the ancestry of each ExAC individual, we performed principal component analysis (PCA) to distinguish the major axes of geographic ancestry and to identify population clusters corresponding to individuals of European, African, South Asian, East Asian, and admixed American (hereafter referred to as Latino) ancestry (Fig. 1b; Supplementary Table 3); we note that the apparent separation between East Asian and other samples reflects a deficiency of Middle Eastern and Central Asian samples in the data set. We further separated Europeans into individuals of Finnish and non-Finnish ancestry given the enrichment of this bottlenecked population; the term European hereafter refers to non-Finnish European individuals.

    Analysis of protein-coding genetic variation in 60,706 humans
