    I was reading this headline from today's newspaper:

    Kepeät mullat konsensukselle

    What does "kepeät mullat" mean?

    I had to look this up myself, too. Apparently its meaning is the same as R.I.P. "rest in peace" and it originates from the Latin phrase Sit tibi terra levis "may the earth be light to you".
