acebutt:

- Kekkuloida = to prance or just hang around naked (yes, the word includes the presumption that you are naked)

- Örveltää = to be really drunk and do whatever you do when you’re really drunk, like crawling in a ditch somewhere on all fours

- Perskärpänen (literally “ass fly”) = a person who keeps following you without you wanting them to

- Röhnöttää = to sit with a bad posture or lie around because you are bored, lazy, or tired 

- Paskahalvaus (literally “shit paralysis”) = the state of being really fucking scared or startled

- Änkyrä = a person who’s very reluctant to change their own, usually backwards and bigoted views

- Änkyröidä = a verb derived from the previous noun

- Raivoraitis (literally “rage sober”) = a person who never drinks alcohol and might be very passionate about it

- Yrmy = a person who’s always grumpy or angry

- Perskannikka (literally “ass end-of-a-loaf-of-bread”) = a slang word for “buttock”

- Vongata = to repeatedly and annoyingly ask for sex from someone who’s not interested (i.e. to be a Nice Guy)

- Könsikäs = a big, handsome, masculine man that you find attractive

- Puliukko = a man who spends most of his time wandering about drunk, smells bad, and might be homeless

Feel free to add to the list. :D

I’d add there one thing that’s common word in my family but I’m not sure about the others:

-Örnöttää = being alone in a very distant place such as a summer cottage, not wanting to anyone disturb and being really grumpy even thinking about the possibility of anyone to come visit you.

bless u finland

my thor art is just getting more ridiculous each time i draw him

can you imagine though…
one day thor is reading up on currents and he sees an article about captain america playing ball with a kid and its the make-a-wish foundation
so thor gets curious and interested and asks Steve to get him involved and they find out a little girl with cancer just wants a tea party with a real prince and thor is like “i am a prince of asgard” and he goes and has a tea party with her and brings apple tarts “because, little midgardian maid, i am told it is tradition to have sweets with tea” and the apple tarts are made with the mythical apples that keep asgardians healthy and after the tea party, the doctors are mystified how she is miraculously healed.

This is how I like my Thor

I nearly scrolled past.
And then I read it.
Those aren’t tears they are liquid feels.

Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 

HEY FUN FACT: pole dancing is known as something strippers do because strippers invented it. And that’s okay! It’s okay to have respect for strippers and the hard work they put into what they do! Let’s stop trying to take the stripper part out of pole dancing so upperclass white girls can do it without being ~stigmatized~ because god forbid women be sexual.
