If you bothered to read the article (or the book I linked), you'd find out that plate tectonics is crucial in the long-term carbon cycle that snatches carbon-containing minerals and, passing through subduction zones, deposits them in the depths of the Earth. (I'm not a geologist but I also vaguely recall that the hydration of these minerals contributes to the increased levels volcanic activity near the subduction zones, by means of lowering the melting point of rocks - which is how the cycle gets closed, since this volcanic activity releases the carbon back.)

And as I pointed out, there are European countries that will allow him to do exactly that - or, as you put it, "where foreign students on a student visa [are] tuition-free", which naturally includes Americans. Or are you really counting in the airline ticket? I also never said anything about number of Americans speaking Finnish, I have no idea where you got that.

"Irrational hate"? I'm just pointing out obvious things.

You were specifically asking for tuition-free education for foreign students on a visa. I pointed it out to you. Now you're moving the goalposts and making extra requests. I'm just waiting when you start asking for a free plane ticket to Europe or counseling with cultural acclimatization. Everything has its costs, direct or indirect, monetary or otherwise, including studying in a foreign country - that much is obvious, but I answered exactly the part you were asking for, no more, no less.

Is it just me, or does that guy really suck at suturing? I'm not a physician (never even played one), but I've watched instructional videos, and that didn't look like how the pros do it.

Well of course! What, did you expect to be a suturing pro after watching your first suturing video? Of course you have to learn it piece by piece, what would happen to the instructional video industry if they taught you everything instantly? Won't somebody think of the instructors?
