QuoteWhat does Nokia mean?The origin of the name Nokia is obscure. In modern Finnish, noki means soot and nokia is its inflected plural, although this form of the word is rarely if ever used. The most common theory claims the name actually originates from the archaic Finnish word nois (pl. nokia) or nokinÃ¤Ã¤tÃ¤ ("soot marten"), meaning sable .After sable was hunted to extinction in Finland, the word was applied to any dark-coated fur animal, such as the marten, which are found in the area to this day. The sable is enshrined on the Nokia coat of arms. However, later research has appeared to indicate that sables never inhabited Finland in the first place, and the name nois may actually refer to the beaver.

Quote from: SGOS on August 09, 2020, 09:27:31 AMThe first Transformer movie was worth watching. As sequels kept coming I wanted the franchise to die, not for my sake, but for the sake of the franchise.
