"So, in the US there's an issue that in the ads the women are pretty/above-average, look-wise?
I can kind of understand why that miss didn't get to serve because she's too pretty. I, not knowing the entire story, think this is to…"
"On the other hand, how can you say they're a bad thing when they kill murderers everyday? War sadly costs lives of innocent people and that's one reason why I hate war and also the drone strikes, but the Taliban must be stopped, if you ask…"
"Well, that's less than 7.1 million for the monarch. Still a lot of money, I can't deny that, but it's less than the 31 million you mentioned earlier.
From what I read Queen Beatrix had a salary of 830.000 euros. A lot of the…"
"I'm a Dutch monarchist.
I honestly see no reason why the Monarchy should vanish. It's an important source of income, by far exceding the costs.
A monarch has more psychological power than a president. Presidents are equals of each other,…"
"The Netherlands has welfare. I might understand your concept of wellfare incorrectly, but in the Netherlands it also means that people who were fired from their job get money, people with children get some extra money to lighten the burden, and…"
"Democracy is often the best way, I suppose, but sometimes it can be really bad for a country. I suppose the Roman system of democracy and dictatorship is pretty good. In times of crisis, a dictator is democratically elected. If one thing is bad in a…"
"If it happens here, they'll hang, figuratively. So, nope. In a more corrupt country, maybe, but for as far as I know, here in the Netherlands, they get punished. Not enough, though, very often, but they do get punished."
"People. People are shit. I think even Nerdfighteria might be corrupted in time, if it were a country. There are a lot of exceptions, but there are also a lot of people who have an opinion and would kill people for it.
Talking about the…"
"One thing that inspired me and I still think about, especially when I'm raging over something, is what an old lady once told me. I didn't know her, I doubt I'd ever seen her before, but she said: "Never change who you are"…"
"I have the same problem. I have a lot of ideas in my mind, but somehow I can't write a story around it. It wouldn't be much more than an incoherent history book used at school, but minus the pictures."
"I think you're right. THis is the first time since half a year, if not more, that I'm online, and the rest of the community on this site has the same problem, it seems. The Dutch nerdfighter community is very active though. We are on…"
A dutch nerd, whose passion is history and addicted to books, TV, and computer.
I'm Daniel and like I already stated I love history and actually want to be a history teacher. I'm somewhat addicted to gaming. And I'm a somewhat sportive nerd. I cycle quite a bit and next Summer (2013) I want to do a little tour in England to meet my English nerdfighter friends. :)
I'm a vlogger, since recently. I play the harmonica and talk about about... stuff. I also intend to do 'let's plays' and maybe sing? http://www.youtube.com/user/DanAndHoe/

What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
My helmets, and tissues!
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
Well, I added you because I'm looking to make some new nerdfighter friends and you seemed to have a lot in common with me. :) I love learning about history, and books are my most favourite thing in the world! Also, Hugh Grant is brilliant.
