Guys, guys. I see Finland is losing.
Look, I understand why you might dislike the architecture. It's a huge, scary, ugly block. With columns. I realize that.
But Greece? Greece's building is just kinda... there. Oh, and there's a fountain. Whoop-de-fucking-doo. What I'm trying to say is, the Greek architecture is a prime example of artistic cowardice. Seriously, what is there to say about it? There's nothing to say about it. I'm trying to find another sentence to describe its blandness, but this is the best I can come up with. Need I say more?
By contrast, the Finnish are making a fucking statement with that building. That building says, "Don't even think
about fucking with this."
You know, the Russians probably didn't pay much attention to the attitude of Finnish architecture when they invaded in 1939. In case you're not aware of how that turned out for Russia, just look at the statistics:
That building says "Finland: Be afraid. Be very afraid." You don't need to speak Finnish to understand that.
