Ukraine should suck up their pride and go back into Mother Russia. They would both benefit, just make it autonomous state within russia.

no more tariffs.

After all, they are orthodox brothers.


(now, you serbs and bulgarians and romanians, suck up your pride too and join greece so it can make an emperor again. Greece, stop thinking bad things about your orthodox neighbors, since you are nothing compared to your archnemesis the turk, you would need them)

The United States is an example to be followed eh!!!



South America, quick running around in puny countries, form together as a country of the entire south america, you would be very powerful

Remember The Ukraine = The Borderland. We cannot further diminish the importance of its meaning any further!

I'm on a team with a Ukrainian guy. Should I greet him with Christos Anesti?

Yes.  He will then speak to you in flawless Koine Greek with a few smatterings of Aramaic.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Having a non-Finnish flatmate is great but it's somewhat depressing to notice how bad I really am at English. I've never had much day-to-day use for any other language than my native language so I've never had much practice with this kind of everyday communication either.

Speaking, reading, listening, writing are all pretty much different skills. Be glad that you have a high reading and writing fluency at least. And I would guess listening as well.

Now there's an oxymoron  ::) ! Alpo has said he wants to improve his English. Truth be told, foreigners tend to speak English more perfectly than most native speakers. Though that is likely true of most languages.

Is it normal for a washer and/or dryer to rip your towels in half?

Unless my housemate had intentionally done it himself I think this is what might have happened. I don't remember us having two halves of a white towel.

Failed in my attempt to attend an Orthodox church today.

On the bright side, had I succeeded I would have likely missed my father's phone-calls completely and wouldn't have been able to get the metric ton of free groceries that I did. At least there's that.

Your washer is angry for your lack of sacrifices, so it took a towel as a warning.   Feed it weekly without fail and you'll see your towels become cleaner and softer.

What i like about Catholic Churches here as opposed to the orthodox is their usually grand scale and the utter anonimity it allows. Plus nobody will ever ask you if you are catholic but some orthodox. Parishes have people at the door for that very purpose .

Americans are weird. Our parishes are quite small but they still allow utter anonymity. Nobody will ever ask if you're an Orthodox or not.

I agree. It's really odd when visiting a different parish to have people needing to hear your life's story.

For one like this I'd suggest something that tastes sweet but goes down easy--maybe some priests holding kitten or monks holding guns. Let me think on this.

Most people don't realize that Midol was originally marketed in 1911 as a cure for headaches and toothaches, and then they tried to market it as a cure for hiccups. It was only later that people realized that it was effective at dealing with menstrual cramps. To this day, it can still be used by either sex for dealing with headaches and other assorted pains. There is nothing female-specific in the drug, so remember that next time you have a headache or some ache. Its ingredients consist of:

Acetaminophen 500 mg--(aka, Tylenol)
Caffeine 60 mg (!)
Pyrilamine maleate 15 mg (an anti-histamine)

This ad advertises Midol for its original use. http://www.mum.org/midoslog.jpg

I'm surprised Turkey is marked as more religious than other countries like Iraq and Iran. I was under the impression that, at least as far as predominantly Muslim countries go, Turkey was comparatively more secular. ??

Also surprised to see that the US isn't more religious according to this.

It is kinda sad that the Orthodox world is the least religious part of the world, although I suspect that has something to do with its history with the Soviet Union.

But, but, but ... Religious Revival! Restoration of Orthodoxy! The map is all American lies!
