Re: Married man affair and police

I guess that is exactly the reason Sweden is now, as we speak, changing the law in that matter, in Sweden you will need explicit consent for sex, otherwise it will be rape. This might prove to be a problem for a lot of people in case they need to provide evidence of this consent. I remember a movie...

Re: Married man affair and police

I believe one or more sex-under-false-pretenses cases have been won in Sweden but I don't recall the details nor whether the concept was plain fraud (receiving something of value by deception) or unlawful sex, of which Swedish law recognizes a number of varieties.

Re: Tori.fi fraud and police response

If a scammer hides behind someone else's real identity and you publish that information tarred as a scammer, you have indeed defamed an innocent party who would justifiably want reparations.

Re: RP Rejected: Reason Low Credits

Or if you did very well in the credits you completed and you can make the case that one of your subjects was especially difficult for you and temporarily slowed you down. They like people who make good progress or possibly also people can show they have worked hard at making good progress. The worst...

Re: Someone can translate this?

It sounds like a Finnish rendition of the usual "second-quarter earnings didn't quite live up to investors' expectations." I say "sounds" but I'm going only from what's written here, can't go to the audio right now. If you must say "earnings period" at all, rather than just naming the quarter (the m...

Hello, Dear Friends :) I also have a Translation question. :D I wanted to ask what's the difference between Myönnän sinun olevan oikeassa. and Myönnän, että olet oikeassa. I admit that you are right. I think difference is between feelings, but how it works, I see that this remains unanswered. Summe...

Re: How difficult would it be to adjust?

I think that if you had what's needed to succeed in a move like this over 40 -- self-starting, skilled at ferreting out hidden opportunities, immune to obstacles, quick in language, mentally flexible -- there is no way you would now be stuck somewhere you're trying to escape from. You wouldn't have ...

Re: ‘Ethical/compassionate’ milk and dairy products?

I am interested in buying ‘ethical/compassionate’ milk and dairy products around here. When you account for the effects methane produced by cows on the climate, I doubt there are any ethical dairy products. http://timeforchange.org/are-cows-cause-of-global-warming-meat-methane-CO2 Maybe you could h...

Other compound verbs like nauraa hihittää?

Can anybody think of other compound verbs that work like nauraa hihittää ? (Tyttö nauraa hihitti, tytöt nauraa hihittivät, tytöt juoksivat nauraa hihittäen...) I have a vague sense that I used to know at least one other example related to a manner of walking, but I'm thinking this probably isn't all...
