We born in the 1970s and 1980s are probably the last ones whose maturation was determined by the rituals of turning, Riku Rantala writes in his column.

Last over the weekend, the work took me on a little Christmas cruise to Stockholm.

I didn’t buy the strongest possible beer from taxfree and chilled it under the tap in the cabin sink, and I didn’t clog the sink drain with toilet paper to promote cooling.
