Casting aside our memories of all the rude people who have taken a call in the middle of a crowded or quiet ____________ (I'll let you fill in your own blanks), let me just say that this cell phone-throwing stuff is taken very seriously because the Finns tend to be oddly-serious people about solo, endurance-riddled competitions. (Biathlon and cross country skiing, anyone?) Finland has been hosting the Mobile Phone Throwing World Championships for twelve, uninterrupted years. We're talking a lot of broken Nokia phones here. This year, a Finn named Ere Karjalainen smashed both his phone, and the world record, with a throw of 101.46 meters. Now that's phoning it home.
By the way, the emphasis in Finnish is always on the first syllable, so it's KAR-ya-lai-nen not Kar-ja-LAY-nin. It doesn't matter how long the word is, either. Good luck, and kiitos for getting it right.
