/me is tempted to make the obvious response, then thinks better of it. Wouldn't touch that line with a ten foot Pole.

Friendly forum this is... *shrugs*

And yes, the process of sticking a finger in dykes is an art that we Dutch people understand better than anyone else... that's why there's a lot of them in this country. [evil]

amazing how you can figure out most of what's going on when reading Dutch, but you can never understand it when you hear it.

voorstellen: mijn naam is Anna. ik ben 24 jaar.

hey "Meer regels zijn er hopelijk niet nodig." means
more rules are hopefully not needed here. Am I right? What a cool language, Gilraen!

I'm not entirely sure if you were being sarcastic or not... But yes, you translated that sentence correctly.

Well good luck, then. People tell me it's not an easy language to learn (to speak).
