    Having just seen the movie 'The Man With No Past', I'd like to hear your thoughts on this movie, and what it says about these issues in Finland.

    Lawry's question hasn't really been answered with these lists of places
    (one's homeland always seeming to be the first choice), because, he said 'what if?' not 'where is?'

    So- 'what if?'

    What if there _were_ such a place (because, IMHO, there ain't). Would we know about it...? How would we get there...?
