Oh, come on, we'll throw you into the sea to cool down.....
Things are very bad for us, from a financial and political point of view. I cannot see however how someone could be afraid to come here....the islands rock as always...tourists might have a problem only in the capital during demonstration and strike days... in the islands you are in a different world....but for us it will not settle for many many years to come.Goodnight now....

Don't say a bad word about Antti - F~0~M deletes them and he has one site where they are all but will have to look for the address.

I don't know how many times F~0~M has deleted them from YouTube but Antti just keeps on putting them back there.

But will get back with the address to his blog later.

I think that redstorm's reference to 'the dumb little troll' was referring to Bernie Ecclestone and F~0~M, not Antti. :)

I took a look in the Finnish forum to look for the place where Antti puts his videos, didn't yet find it but here is a preview of his amazing Ayrton Senna Tribute:

http://www.veoh.com/browse/videos/categ ... 95E6khTQnr

Antti himself wrote the following:

Surprise surprise, my Youtube-account is gone again. I think the text I wrote in the last part was too much for the FOM-men since five minutes later my account was gone:

"I have a feeling they don't want people to see the final lap onboard, but that's too late now as they themselves released it (after cutting the end of it of course) in 1994. Also in here it is shown in a respecting manner and removing it doesn't make any sense. I guess some people are still paranoid and wanting to desperately cover up whatever happened in Imola that day. While the best solution for everyone would be to come clean and finally reveal everything so all this bulls** about different theories and covering up could stop.

So if someone from F~0~M reads this, think about that and the fans for once. I didn't get paid anything for doing this 45-minute video and it probably even promotes your sport. This video celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Ayrton Senna's birth and to me your obsession of removing this part shows complete lack of respect."

So I guess I'll have to start waiting for the FOM-men to come behind my doorstep now that they know my full name. I mean, making videos like these is such a serious crime that nothing beats it.

Which brings me to another matter; copyrights.

My friend has been foaming over them for years, he thinks that the media should understand that just like a c-cassette the cd is already history and that they should start thinking differently.

Take musicians for example; what better free advertisment would they get than having their songs on YouTube?

Same goes for F1 - who gets hurt if people want to remember and replay old and recent races?

This is why I'm putting my hopes on WRC; they have already said that they will use internet as their media in the future, hopefully this is true since WRC will get a boost for free if it's made easy to watch the races.

In Finland we have to pay 20 euros per month during the whole year if we want to see the F1-season. At least 50 % if not more stopped watching F1 right away. Take it too far and you lose :<>:

There's a lot of unjustice in the world and things are changing, little by little. At least in Finland. It isn't that long time ago when women still were at home so the changes come little by little.

Did anyone of you ever think about the energy that swept over the world in the 60's? The hippie-movement?

That changed many people and started somekind of a revolution, women were liberated and objected to the patriarchy and hopefully we will someday find the balance between matriarchy and patriarchy.

Just remember that a long long long time ago women ruled and men were their slaves - now the patriarchy is slowly dying and hopefully we will experience equality someday :)


Oh, boo hoo! Women in Afganistan have reasons to complain, but not in the western world. I won´t say that there aren´t any problems but to say that women are not equal is BS. Why don´t women want to be equal and work as many years as men to get a pension (when they retire). Women live longer and yet they work less. Why is that?
About the hippie-movement. Hippies are the laziest, work hating douchebags the world has ever seen. Why would taking drugs, sitting on your ass and having unprotected sex save the problems of the world. That just doesn´t makes sense. For some women the idea of freedom was not wearing a bra and not shaving you armpits. :huh: If you think that this makes women free then the women in Afganistan have been free for hundrets of years.
I think the real problem is in respecting each other. Man (or woman) should respect the work the other is doing at home, with the family. Stay at home moms (or dads) are many times looked down upon by those who work in "real" jobs. But they have a real job-raising children, the same children we hear all the time are our true wealth and yet we let them be raised by their teachers, nannys, the streets...just not their parents.
