That ain't so bad. I would have called you The Flying Dutchman.

But everyone is a Dutchman over here. Except for the women, they're Dutchwomen.

Yes, but you are the only one who is flying  :P.

Come on Cyrillic, don't ruin my nickname. I spent like two minutes, coming up with it.

But that friend I talked about is called seagull already. If anything he's the flying dutchman.

Alright, alright, I get your point. What about... the Orthodox Tulipe?

You mean Orthodox Oranje.

Had to do a system restore this morning on my computer, thanks to a lovely message accusing me of doing something illegal (they weren't sure what) that wouldn't go away.

I'm wondering how they found out about that one...

Shame when that happens. At least I feel flattered that they were impressed with my clock weights to such an extent that they made a commercial about it.
