While submitting a tax declaration in the rest of the world requires hiring an accountant, Estonians are done in flash. Jump online, log into the web page of the Tax Board, do couple of clicks, press enter and you are all set. This is not a joke—in Estonia, tax declarations practically fill themselves and it never takes more than ten minutes.
So Estonia is a country of the future that is far ahead of the rest of the world and cannot be caught unless a lot of effort is put into it. At the same time, however, Estonians can behave and—what’s even worse—think like real cavemen.
Thereby they worship of all sort of soothsayers, clairvoyants, fortune-tellers, witches and healers. Estonians won’t make any important life decisions unless a man with a pendulum has not examined their energy fields and given his blessing. Although soothsayers are glad to help Estonians out, the purse will get considerably lighter, since not even witches can get without a car lease, unless they ride a broom of course.
