My texts

In this section you'll find both factual texts and fictional stories. I hope you find the fact useful and the fiction entertaining. Without further ado I encourage you to check out the content. If you find any of the pages here appealing, feel welcome to write a word or two to my guestbook.


In the fact section we currently have:

Product tests page follows old traditions and puts all kind of gizmoducts and flexolanxes to test bench. Let's see if the consumables are really worth stacking your money to the counter.

This is how our group answered when we were searching for the meaning of life in a psychology class in high school senior year (1999). Now after several years I would think people would answer differently. I probably wouldn't change my own answer.


In here you can read some of the fiction texts I've written in the past. Currently all of the texts are my own translations from the Finnish originals. As I am not a professional translator you have to bear any grammar mistakes and clumsy sentences. However I'd like to hear about any BAD grammar mistakes to be able to correct them. Let me know by email or via the guestbook. Here are the texts:
