Is Finland Real?
By Madeline B.
As we all know, the internet is full of weird things that make more sense. Some of the best weirdness that the world wide web provides is conspiracy theories. Basically, my favorite things in the world. The gem I found this week was simple, yet extremely confusing. Finland doesn’t exist. Or, at least it doesn’t according to Reddit user "Raregans".
The theory evolved on Reddit, after someone suggested this, “Finland was a fabricated landmass, dreamed up by the Japanese and Soviet Union during the Cold War in an effort to secure fishing rights in the Baltic Sea.”
But what about the citizens of the supposed Finland, you ask. Reddit actually answered it. Apparently, people who live in the nonexistent Finland actually belong to the real countries of Estonia, Sweden, and Russia.
Some find this explanation rock solid, but what do you think?
