Nothing says Thanksgiving like Spongebob in a Santa hat.  I’m thankful that lots of you out there actually find what I have to say and share interesting enough to keep on reading.  Thanks!

    I’m thankful that Finnish parliament voted for same-sex marriage today.

    (From political science point of view this is a big thing. Finnish citizens got the right to make citizen’s initiatives 1.3.2012. After you have collected 50000 names supporting it parliament takes it under consideration. Only three initiatives before this have reached the threshold and parliament has voted them all down. Ok, now it goes back to a certain committee and then comes back for final vote but today’s vote was the defining vote.

    Also it’s kinda amazing that the citizen who started this initiative was 19-years old when she got the idea. She gathered a group of friends and they started working on it. And now our parliament voted in favor of her idea. Nice addition to her CV one might think 🙂 )
