This happened to me few months ago: I was in a lecture where the lecturer was an American. After he had finished everyone politely applauded and then he asked if anyone had any questions or would like to give feedback to his lecture. The whole auditorium went dead silent.
The lecturer was clearly abashed. After a while he asked ”Was it that bad? Was it shit? You can tell me. I don’t mind”. Then everyone shouted ”No no no!” and someone even dared to yell ”It was great!”.
Settling with this the lecturer ended the lecture. And right after when people started to leave about 50% of the students set in line to ask questions from the lecturer in person.
This seems to be one of the ultimate horrors in for Finns. I've got over 20 messages from my fans and readers about this. I can't lie, it's horrible. Why it's horrible? I can't really explain. Can you?
I got mail last Friday. Someone had reported Finnish Nightmares to SoMe Awards 2016 and from all 600 reported social media phenomenons it was chosen as one of the finalists. I will be shy and uncomfortable to go there so let's make it double as uncomfortable and make me go to the stage as everyone's watching me to get the 3D-printed statue.
Dear people who use Instagram. I just joined in instagram by name finnishnightmaresmatti. The "finnishnightmares" username was already taken on instagram and the user of that account was not me despite the fact he/she's using my pictures.
I got the situation handled and to prevent any further random copycats on Instagram, you'll find me behind the name finnishnightmaresofficial!
