    Dutch people: We don't sleep in mills, 💤 we don't wear clogs, 👞 we don't have tulips everywhere 🌷 & not all of us do drugs. 🙅
    Me: The real question is..
    do we ice skate to work? 😱😱
    (Greetings from the Netherlands)

    Im Dutch. I dont have a job. I cant skate. But if I had a job and could skate, I surely wont skate to my job. Too many Dutch skaters on the ice skating to their job..... hahahaha.

    Such a non-apology. "I was trying to salute the Dutch. Didn't come out right."
    Maybe because you were making it up without research... How is this acceptable?

    To be fair, lots of people did use to skate on those canals and go from place to place when most waters would freeze over. Those things happened some 100 years or more ago. But they probably didn't go to work with skates... very unlikely!

      1. Dat heb je fout
      2. Ik snap je vijandigheid niet helemaal
      3. Ik heb duidelijk een gevoelige snaar geraakt. Ik laat je maar met rust. Fijne avond verder, Berend.

      Berend Kuipers Alleen omdat ik je Engels verbeter, wil nog niet zeggen dat ik Amerikaans ben. Geboren en getogen in Zwolle :P

    "One Nation Is Single-Handedly Inventing the Future of Transportation". Yeah, right. Until we have to build something as ultra-modern as a subway...

    YEs we do wintersport, but we don't have mountains in the Netherlands, so we have just ice tracks .

      Uhm everybody I know is hyped for ice skating this week. University, friends, family and work. Everybody is going to skate? Where do you live that they don't like ice-skating

      They maybe can learn this week again. It's very cold.

      Peet ive been thinking about our conversation and talking to some friends, I must say you might be right. Younger generations have little experience with ice in the Netherlands and hardly know what it is to skate from village to village. The last time it was possible was years ago. My experience is most likely outdated.

      Serious, me ?
      Not really, but i thought that was obvious.
      (except the jeebus part)

    • Vincent Campaert

      I would if it only meant seeing your beautiful face when I step outside my door. ( Please don't sue )

      It was a joke. Don't take this serious.

      That's hard to say since nobody even knows when that was.
      And if he really did, all those religious people would for once had a real argument regarding jeebus to be real.

      Damn you must have witnessed the birth of Jesus if you're that old.
