    Chernobyl

    It is. For me the finale episode, when everything is explained in a way that even layman like me understands how and why this all happened, was the best of the bunch. But all in all a very good series, indeed.

    Chernobyl

    As for CO2 emissions, it's sill one of the "cleanest" energy sources. As for nuclear waste, we will have to see if those molten salt reactors are a solution. And of course, nuclear power has been a solution for taking care of that nuclear weapon stockpile.

    Chernobyl

    That's just a fact that needs to be considered. Not that I am in any way against renewable energy sources, but wind and solar still have their limitations. Especially in countries like Finland, where the sun won't come up in months and most of the spikes in energy consumption are during the coldest winter days. Which sadly have a couple of things in common, usually there's no sunshine and there's no wind. Battery technology, as far as I know, isn't really even near to cover this gap. We need CO2-free 24/7/52 energy. There is also hope that the latest types of reactors would reduce nuclear waste, there are talks about small reactors placed alongside wind- and solar farms to moderate those spikes solar and wind makes and so on. But of course, safety should always come first. Nobody needs another catastrophe like Chernobyl was.

    That jet stream keeps meandering all over the place in Western Europe. If it hits west, more on top of Ireland, it's sunshine. When it moves more inlands, it's rain and storm. It's basically cooler Arctic air and warm tropical air colliding. For storms, optimal environment. Finland has been on the border of this as well. April was very dry and sunny and warm, May was very rainy. But the drought is also a problem here. In the south-eastern parts of Finland groundwater is now very low, since it hasn't recovered from last summer. Most of our lakes are also lower than usual, even if they have controlled the levels since last summer. Algae starts to form when temperatures hit 22-23 degrees. Finnish lakes are pretty shallow and warm up pretty quickly. And then there are of course nutrients from agriculture, which are also causing this problem. Cycle +100 kilometers and the queue for I don't know how long to have a couple of minutes worth of thrill and then cycle +100 kilometers back home. Done.

    Or Rome. And yes, Deadwood was also a great series.

    And here we go again. Heatwave hitting Finland. +30 C temperatures to be expected all over Southern Finland. Not quite all time record, which is 33,8 recorded way back in the 30's, but it going to be very hot and very humid for the next couple of days. And after that, somewhere around Saturday, it's time for big thunderstorms. Moved the lawn yesterday and I have a day off. Just finished twelve week long training cycle. So, maybe it's time to hit the beach. The waters are still rather cool and we don't have that usual blue-green algae problem in our lakes, yet.

    Chernobyl

    A very good series, indeed. Though some bits might be a bit "dramatized", but all in all a very solid series. I also have to give credit for the music by Hildur Gudnadottir. A very creepy ambient-type soundtrack, which is kind of like listening to the sound radiation would make. Band of Brothers just had a serious competitor for the best HBO-series of all time, IMHO.

    Good old Peoples's Party. Another more Hockey-related. As we remember what happened to Finland in Vancouver semifinals....

    THE LAUGHING THREAD

    Watching Office Space again and the scene where the boys avenge the always malfunctioning printer gets me every time. Now, who doesn't have piece of crap equipment in their workplace, which is always crapping all over, when you have to do your job?

    The final was played in Stockholm against the Swedes. Finns won 4-1 and the game winning goal (2-0) was scored by Ville Peltonen at 37:39.

    That version is better. Just something odd: 2011 World Championships, final played in Bratislava, Finland scored the game winning goal at 42:35. 2019 World Championships, final again in Bratislava, again Finland scored the game winning goal at 42:35. Also, 1995 Finnish Centre Party lost the Parliamentary Election and Finland made it to finals and won 2011 Finnish Centre Party lost the elections again, Finland made it to finals and won. And guess which party lost the elections this year? Universe is clearly trying to tell Finnish people something. And that is: DON'T VOTE FOR CENTRE PARTY.

    How on earth you keep finding gems like this???? @suomi usa, Dängjuu, dängjuu (in rally driver English) You can imagine the feeling here right now. Nobody believed in this teams chance to win anything. And just like that, roughly 250 million dollars worth of Swedish, Russian and Canadian stars had to bow to this team. Canadians twice. This is unbelievable. Games recaps by legendary Finnish commentator Antero Mertaranta. This guy probably lost ten pounds during his screaming in the commentators booth: As for me, the last month of hockey has been something I will never forget. The team I support, HPK, winning Finnish Championship. And of course by beating last years champion in game seven overtime. And now this. Last couple of months has been hockey-thriller after hockey- thriller. Now I need a vacation from hockey.
