You got a point. But then again did I say I think I'm not? I think in the contrary.
I was just glad to find a fellow freak. (If not freakier... )

Companies such as Google, Facebook, Twitter,...have joined forces, trying to curb government spying (NSA in particular).
---> pffft...bunch of hypocrites. As if they give a damn about such things as privacy and gathering of personal information.

Noel Gallagher (from Oasis) on Miley Cyrus:
(interview with The Rolling Stone)
Quote:
"I think there's a trend, unfortunately, of girls desperately trying to be provocative or desperately trying to 'start the debate' about some old sh*t or other.”

"Because, really, they're not very good. I feel bad for 'em. It's like, 'Write a good song. Don't make a provocative video - write a good f**king song. That'll serve you better.

"I think ... It's a shame, because it puts all the other female artists back about f**king five years. It's just embarrassing. Be good. Don't be outrageous. Anybody can be outrageous!”

"I could go to the Rolling Stone office and sh*t on top of a boiled egg, right? And people would go, 'Wow, f***ing hell, that's outrageous!' But is it any good? No, because, essentially, it's just a sh*t on top of a boiled egg."
Eloquent, isn't he?

However, I do agree with him.
If she actually could write a decent song to begin with, she wouldn't need to be so desperately provocative and it's a shame that it works because it's putting good female artists in the shade.

To be honest, I don't listen much to those present-day 'produced' pop-starlets, must be getting old.
And I agree with Noel Gallagher too. Great comparison btw.

Haha Hilde taking offence when people say Holland instead of the Netherlands. I will definitely call her a Walloon from now on

I'm correct and you know it.
(or you should know it, living with a "Nederlandse" although if I'm not mistaken, she's from Holland so perhaps she clouded your mind in this regard...Juist, Eva?)

Holland is not a country, it's part of a country. Call somebody from Friesland a Hollander and he'll be insulted.
The country's name = Nederland.

In Estonian both names "Holland = Madalmaade Kuningriik" are official (parallel use allowed).

I've studied ethymology of certain words. Btw Estonia in Finnish is named after one of ancient Estonian districts or regions, and it's official, the name Eesti in Finnish is unofficial (acceptable but not official).

That's the point. I think in most foreign languages we refer to Holland rather than the more complicated Netherlands.

Nederland is not complicated to say, though. It's not more complicated than Switzerland.

The use of the term "Holland" for the entire country is a lazy mistake made popular. It's as if the entire United Kingdom would be called Wales because that's easier to pronounce.

People who are from Nederland speak Dutch and they are referred to as being Dutch.

Interesting from where this reference comes as actually the Netherlands is not that much more difficult to say, just longer. Maybe Holland sounded nice to our predecessors. You know we had (trade) relations in the Middle Ages already.

We have Holland too( Olanda )

I didn't even know that Holland was actually called The Netherlands until years after I started working in an Import-Export Department and we got our first Netherlander customer

It used to be Pays-bas but now it's Olanda

The Switzerland, the same, it's Elvetia in Romanian.

I guess we got all the names through the French filter, I can't say Brussels for the life of me

"The United Kingdom" is "Apvienotā Karaliste" in Latvian but you will never hear anyone say it. "Great Britain" is a more commonly used term but still not very often. People usually say England or Ireland But you can be happy, Hilde, because we commonly say "Nīderlande". On the other hand, the language is called "holandiešu". Go figure
