SVT-40

Russian semi-automatic rifle chambered in 7.62x54R, it was intended to be a replacement for the Mosin Nagant M91/30. The example above is a sniper variant; the receiver is grooved to accept the unique scope mount paired with a very specific PU scope. It wasn’t too effective as a sniper rifle, but was a capable infantry rifle if they knew how to operate it. The Germans and Finns used them to deadly effect against the Russians whenever they captured SVT-40′s. (GRH)

Rather exciting news: Finland is about to change its national anthem

Maamme-laulu, Finland’s current national anthem, has divided Finns’ opinions for a long time. Whereas there is nothing wrong with the song per se, many think it is not suitable to be our national anthem because it shares the same melody as Mu isamaa, mu õnn ja rõõm, Estonia’s national anthem. People have also complained about the fact that the composer of the song, Fredrik Pacius, is actually German. In short, Finns feel that our national anthem should be changed to something a) original and b) that is composed by a Finn. 

After numerous debates and discussions the Finnish government decided to take action and it seems that Finland will have a brand new national anthem in 2017. Mostly this is thanks to Perussuomalaiset (True Finns), a political party which greatly values Finland and Finnish culture. 

The new national anthem will probably have the same lyrics as the current one (if you’re interested, see the original+translated lyrics here), but the melody will be changed into the melody of “Hiekkamyrsky” (lit. “breath of the soil” or something similar), a composition by a famous Finnish musician and composer Ville Virtanen. Hiekkamyrsky was chosen because it’s importance to all Finns, says the committee behind the choice. You can listen an orchestral version of the soon-to-be Finland’s national anthem below:

"At the OIL FACTORY, the OPTICIAN looked for the OCCUPANT of the TRUCK. He
was searching because 3 GEMS had been ABDUCTED by a man who was hiding his FACE and EARS. A GLOSSY PHOTOGRAPH has been taken of him, but it was too VAGUE to use. He appeared to be SPINELESS and HYPOCRITICAL.“


In order, the oil factory is the olfactory nerve; the optician is the optical nerve; the occupant is the occulomotor nerve; the truck represents the trochlear nerve; the 3 gems are the trigeminal nerve; abducted is really the abducens;
face is facial; ears really means auditory; glossy photograph is glosso-pharyngeal; spineless relates to the spinal
accessory nerve; and hypocritical is the hypoglossal nerve.

anonymous asked:

i'm chinese & i find it hard to distinguish between the people of certain east asian countries e.g. i find it difficult to tell if someone is chinese/japanese/korean. i'm worried about whether or not this is problematic given the trope of 'all asians look the same' - on one hand, i find it problematic to assign features to certain countries & thus 'guess' at people's ethnicities, but i know conflation of diff asian countries is a problem. do you have any guidance about this?

in truth, many asians can pick out “our own” and differentiate because of myriad factors that are often subconscious and unplaceable, but involve a combination of not just genetic features but also general mannerisms, makeup style, manner of speech, etc etc. it’s also common to not be able to “tell apart” chinese americans from japanese americans etc because they have a shared experience as asian americans, and this may come through in how they physically present themselves.

in other words, it’s not about the inherent act of being able to tell (or not) if some person is from this country or that country. the opposing trope of “i can tell asians apart because chinese people look like X and korean people looks like Y” is not any better. the problem with the trope of “all asians look the same” is how it’s used to make us a monolith and erase our diverse identities and experiences.

white europeans can sometimes guess the origins of each other, without having douchebags proclaiming they can tell apart “the Germans from the Finns” like some sort of human zoologist. there also isn’t the same “you’re all the same anyway” trope imposed on them. they get to have a nuanced understanding of the blurry yet distinct lines between their ethnocultural groups without being subjected to dehumanising tropes.

that’s the problem with “all asians look the same” or the opposing “i am an expert at telling asians apart”, not the inherent action of identifying someone as chinese or not on sight.

Finnish Jewish Major Leo Skurnik (1907-1976). Scientist, doctor, and aspiring concert pianist, Leo Skurnik joined the Finnish Army as a medical officer when war broke out. Serving with Jakavälki Rykmentti 53 (53 Infantry Regiment), Skurnik was responsible for the unit’s medical care and welfare. While posted to Kiestinki’s Pocket in 1941, Skurnik took over part of the treatment duties for 6. SS-Nord.

By August of that year, the Soviets had almost completely surrounded both units. Under heavy Russian shelling, Skurnik decided the units’ combined field hospital had to be evacuated. At great risk to his own life, Skurnik led 600 wounded Finns and Germans through 5.5 miles of bogland under enemy fire, eventually bringing them all back safely to their own lines. For this, he was recommended for an Iron Cross Second Class (EKII). Said Colonel Wolf Halsti: "Major Skurnik did not only take care of the wounded, he also went himself to the frontline and brought them back under enemy’s fire. Whether it was a Finn or German, he brought them safe.“ 

When General Hjalmar Siilasvuo informed Skurnik that he had been recommended for the EKII, he laughed it off, saying he’d wait to see how long it took Berlin to refuse the award once they found out he was Jewish. To Skurnik’s great surprise, the medal was approved. When Skurnik learned this, he told General Siilasvuo: “My good friend, do you think I can take that kind of decoration? Tell your German colleagues that I wipe my arse with it!” The infuriated Germans demanded the general hand Skurnik over for punishment. Siilasvuo refused.
