Ah, I was going to mention something similar . . . irrespective of whether it is a big or a small country, the Dutch countryside consists of nothing but flat . . . and it smells from all the manure used. It is boring as shit to drive in . . . the only thing nice in this respect are some of the inner city areas with their old buildings . . . very pretty.beppi wrote:Why didn't you mention the wonderful trekking and rock climbing opportunities in the Dutch mountain ranges - that would have made up for the lack of a <sarcasm> tag in this forum!aster wrote:The Dutch are better in every way, why should they have an inferiority complex?

Stats or links?
Yes, they are -due to massive hormones in their food - yuck!
, have better looking women
Sure, if you like 6'4 200lb flatfeet
, a hugely superior sense of humour
True, you are showing it with this line!
, better footballers
Yes, hence the cabinetload of trophies . . . how many World Championships? European Championships?
, more interesting cities
Huh? Like what compared to what? Amsterdam to Munich? Rotterdam to Berlin?
, a better airport than their neighbours are able to provide in a much bigger environment
How many international airports in Holland? How many in Germany? Schiphol is pretty good, but how you can say it is better than Frankfurt . . . Kaaskop~!
, better rail system
Really? How so? Deutsche Bahn is brilliant, as is the Dutch version . . . both very good. I guess I could use your specious arguments about size etc . . . but that would be childish.
, better banks
, rank much higher in the global economic freedom index, have a higher GDP per capita, etc., etc., etc.,
Now you're really taking the piss . . . the old statistics argument . . . Kaakop!
Beaches? Zandvoort? Give me a break = miserable places. Let's face it, Holland isn't much to look at, nor eat nor have good beer . . . worst of all was the weather, though SG mentions that it was quite good this year.
Grolsch from the tap is ok, aside form that give me any Belgian or German beer, whether it is Koelsch, Bit or any of the hundreds of others.
Food? German food can be excellent with many, many varieties according to the region . . . though I must say that my favourite cuisine is Belgian . . . mmmmmmmmm and yummmmmmmm
