Hartelijk welkom Grecco!
Mijn familie komt uit Zaandam, hoewel ikzelf in Leeuwarden werd geboren terwijl mijn vader in de KLu diende. Toen ik drie werd, emigreerde mijn familie naar de Verenigde Staten. Meer dan vijftig jaar later, hier zijn we!



These guys around here are mostly pretty alright, though I'd not leave a tasty sandwich untended were I you.

and for some reason you're not allowed to drive as fast as you are allowed to on the German Autobahn

There's a very good reason - most Americans drive like shit; keeping speeds down keeps them from killing even more of their countrymen.

They had a Tiger II over there.

Oh, she's a beauty. I wonder if I could slip her out in my pocket and nobody would notice?
