    We don't have some sort of royalty. NL is a kingdom just like the UK. And just like in the UK our king has no or little political power. Their function is mainly ceremonial, just like for instance the president of Germany. Political power is with the parliament and the government. Of course...

    If you would go out in the streets and ask the Dutch what it is, you would find that a vast majority will not have a clue what you are talking about. And on top of that it is mostly a royal thingy.

    The fact that something is in place since ......... (fill in the date) has often more importance than efficiency. The British love traditions far more than the rest of the EU. And the parties that gain the most of the somewhat outdated democratic system will do everything to keep it in place of...

    Of course there are more items that need attention. But I have the feeling that the Brexit topic is avoided as much as possible as subject. And this is not just an election IMHO. It was mainly triggered because of te failure to solve the Brexit thingy. So that should be at least the main focal...

    Origins of the Opioid Crisis

    My dentist said to take paracetamol if needed, max 4 times 1000 mg a day, when he removed my wisdom teeth. That did not make it painless all the time during the days after treatment, but it was good enough to live trough these days. After 2 days pain was so far down that I could stop with the...

    Anyone else getting seriously worried Trump will win in 2020?

    45 holds the better cards at the moment. A second term is possible. But who knows. A lot can happen in the next months. It would be a good things if the Dems could unite quickly around one candidate and not have to fight each other until their national convention. A quick collapse of the economy...

    VVO Friendsgiving Event 11/30 11 AM SLT

    I've just popped in and out. It looks great. Nice to see that big crowd. But conversation really went to quick for me with so many people contributing. My a bit limited eyesight didn't help either. Well, I gave it a try.

    What did you pick up on Black Friday?

    Nothing, rien, niets, gar nichts, nada, niente. The Dutch retailers are trying to make Black Friday an important event as well, but I refuse to buy something on that day (except maybe food I need).
