Ok Fort, that was hilarious. Dead on too.

It makes me wonder why you have an English spoken video on a Dutch site though. Are you Europeans just naturally multi-lingual?

Heh no not really but everybody learns at least a bit of english in school.(from age 10 or 12 or so)

Beside that , if you want to communicate with people around the world you need to know a bit of english.

Manuals of machines and stuff are allways in english , german and a dozen other languages except dutch128

But unlike germany or france we don't have those voice-overs in movies but subtitles so we allways hear the original language wich is usually english........or 90% of all popsongs by the way.

I wasn't very good in english , german or even dutch in school because there is not much logic in any language.

However if you know just a bit and use your hand and feet to fill in the gaps you can make people understand you.

It also comes in handy if you know what your neighbours are talking about.(england on the west and germany on the east border)

You are being modest, my Dutch friend.  You speak (write?) English as well as I do.  Most european countries teach English as a second language from a very young age.  I was an exchange student for a VERY short time in Germany, and everyone spoke English quite well.  I spoke NO German, tho!  The funny thing is, students are taught "English", not "American".   So, when they speak, they all have english accents and different ways of saying things.  I have travelled extensively in Europe and found that the farther north you go, the more this is true.  It is actually somewhat true in the US.  The farther south you go, the heavier the accent, even to the point that people can be hard to understand.  A little social studies trivia for the day.  That is all.
