Killer of threadsAll the MR:EDS are absolutely brilliant. Especially the one with the swear words, it made me realize that we indeed swear like sailors. I live in Alblasserdam myself: it's alright, not a lot happens, but Dordrecht, Rotterdam and Utrecht are all close by.
JEZUS MARIA PANIE KURWA BOŻEMy very first MR:EDS episode was about our love of ice skating. Let's see what it has gotten us... Men

The Guy Who Is Anna Yet Is NotI just found this thread and I love it! Living in the east of the country, Twenthe to be exact, I've always thought it to be interesting how the country seems to be divided between three areas: the Randstad, with the four biggest cities in them; the South, with Zealand, North-Brabant and Limburg and maybe even part of southern Guelderland (Nijmegen etc.) and the North, with Overijssel, Drenthe, Groningen and Fryslân (since I live in a province directly bordering that province I am socially required to write it in Frisian). I also found that there is this thing of trusting, liking and linguistically understanding all the others within their region, but not liking people outside of it - e.g. Randstedelingen will generally considering anything at the other side of the I Jssel to be "abroad" and Southerners to be "Bourgondic", whilst the rest of the country semi-believes that the North is full of barren wastes and surly people (they're not entirely wrong on the last one). And eh, thanks for all the fun. ^^

Don't trouble trouble until trouble troubles you.
Midnight Rambler...! Where were you when I needed you?? XD As a long-term expat in the Netherlands (I am Spanish, but I have been living and working in NL for quite a few years already), your advice would have been GOLDEN when I first arrived :) Keep the good work, man — keep the good work.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
