Sadly Taarapita wasn't the Oh God of hangovers, which would have been awfully apt.

I thought it funny in conjunction with trehvi's post.

From my "little book of misery" (kept while I researched the life of Estonian street children):

According to reports made by the Swedish government up to 25% of Estonian children live in families whose income in below the poverty line.

and while we are at 25%... according to an Estonian Government report 25% of the app. 1.000 sex workers in Tallinn are under 18 years old. Some being as young as 13.

In a 2002 UN debate about child poverty, the estimates on the number of street children in Estonia ranged from 200 to 10.000. Neither of these being correct if you ask Estonian social workers or the Children's Support Center in Tartu. But no official number exists.

The island of Saaremaa is also known by the meteor crater called Kaali. The exact time of the fall of the meteorite is not known, but it is belived that it fell when Saaremaa and mainland of Estonia was already inhabited. There is an old folk song called "Burning of Saaremaa" - it is belived to originate from that time.

The meteor that created the Kaali crater is quite a prevalent feature in the mythology of Estonia, Finland and the rest of the region, including the Kalevala and Comet in Moominland.

Since the Russia invasion of Crimea, attention has switched to Estonia where "Vulnerable Russians" make up 25% of the population. Significantly a NATO member, a Crimea style "solution" in North-East Estonia on the part of Russia would almost certainly cause all out war.

The case of Narva is interesting. A town sitting on the Russian border with a large Russian majority.

The case of Narva is interesting

Protecting the Russian majority was just an excuse. The area was more important than the people. In a way the people were abused (democraticly justifying Russia's power) instead of protected.


"could". It's clear the author didn't read or fully understand NATO's article 5.

Outside of Japan, the country that consumes the most pornographic manga is Estonia.

I learned this in my job as a manga critic. The company that publishes the most pornographic manga or "Hentai" (Japanese for "Perverted", but in Japan they call it "Ecchi", their pronunciation of the letter "H") in English, Project Hentai (owned by Digital Manga Publishing), issued a press release contain this information.

The email contains an infographic listing several pieces of information. One of which is "Which country spends the most time enjoying hentai?" and top five are Estonia, Ireland, Slovenia, the USA and Denmark. The US state that consumes the most hentai is Wyoming, followed by Wisconsin, Hawaii, New York and Missouri.

I would display the infographic but I'm not sure if I'm allowed. There are no rude pictures on it, I'm just worried that it might be considered a bit off limits - mind you, so might this post.

Of course not. We've seen much worse. :-)

In that case, here's the infographic.

Just to explain some of the jargon:

* Waifu: A fictional character, such as one from an anime or manga, that you are attracted to or even love like a real-life partner.
* Oppai: Breasts.
* Paizuri: Breast-fucking.
* Netroare: Cuckold.

Estonia is unique in that it has several capitals that change throughout the year:

Tallinn is the official capital.

Tartu is the cultural capital.

Otepaa is the winter capital.

Parnu is the summer capital.

Turi is the spring capital.

Narva is the autumn capital.

Additionally, Kuressaare is the capital of weddings and sunshine, Jogeva is the capital of frost and Saku is the capital of beer.[/i]
