    Crazy! I am dissapointed with that statement! Do you speak from experience? If not, I thought we would cease the bashing of one's residences. :D (Funny that Basher is my gamerz nickname.... :rolleyes: )

    Amsterdam has a LOT to offer. Much more than any study can! :( In our 198? bid for the summer olympics, the Amsterdam Olympic Committe came up with the slogan: AMSTERDAM HAS IT! Which, you guessed it, has since been twisted into AMSTERDAM HASH IT! No offical endorsement for this slogan, but you see it a lot on merchandise in the souvenir shops.

    Carl, I see what I can do, my friend! And....No way I am sending illigal substances to the US. I know about the US methods of investigation and their hard line stance on dealership: Lately the papers have been full of stories of misguided Dutchmen trying to sell/transport drugs in/to the US.

    Anyway, way off topic.

    Stefan: What kind of Q do you mean?

    Stevin, Martin (I think) suggested a non WW2 quiz and I thought we should keep it going.

    As for Amsterdam, probably my all time fave city, it is a fantastic place. I think the only word that can describe the atmosphere is 'gazelling' (I hope that is right, its what my dutch mate uses). It is really fantastic, the people, the sights ;) , the American tourists walking into your bed ;) , and as for the women....

    Sorry, but i am a teenager;) Anyhow, it was a fantastic city that it is impossible to come away from without some great memories and fantastic stories, Stevin I love your home.

    I have never been there unfortunatly, I would very much like to sometime but I want to travel around Holland and Germany first (I have only been to Amsterdam, the Hague, Cuxhaven, Bremen, Bremehaven and Hannover in those 2 countries) and I want to go to Scandanavia too. I thought Paris was ok but it doesnt have anything on Amsterdam, it isn't all that romantic either. If we are having favourite cities how about least favourite too, I didnt like Hong Kong, the area around it was great but exploring the city was like being trapped in the exhaust pipe of a car. Though I must admit it does have some pretty beautiful bits (the peak, WOW) but and a thunder storm over the city is something that you have to see.

    It's all too much - if anyone posts a poll for 'most hi-jacked thread of all time' this one gets my vote ! :eek:

    PS : The 'poll' idea is a joke !! [​IMG]

    (we should get back to WW2...but this is too funny!)

    Carl, no funny substances? Sheesh, you just insist on taking the fun out of things, don't you? I'm sure Stevin would love the "thrill" of mailing illegal substances. Ones that are easy to smell. Ones that get you in trouble.
    Oh, wait a sec... I see... :D

    Stevin, I humbly correct myself!

    my source ;) - "but you need to go to Amsterdam for Crazy's favoured weed", Martin Bull, 1/16/03, ww2forums.com.
    :D :D

    And on this minor point, I would cite as evidence for the comparable quality of the "materials" in my possession, my buzz last night, this past Sunday, and for further reference I would include my years in college!
    (Geez, is Crazy really making that much of an ass of himself?)
    (Yup... sure looks that way)

    (On the serious note, my girlfriend has spent time in Amsterdam, and the coffeeshops are certainly not the only offering from that city!)

    Gee, Martin, thanks. Really, thanks alot... ;) Boy those are nice looking cigars- cigars we can't get in the US!!!
    Man, those look good- and frustrating!

    Oh dear - one of those Black Helicopters is probably on it's way to your address right now, Crazy.....

    ( Sorry - 'Conspiracy Theory' with Mel Gibson was on British TV yesterday evening ;) )

    You are not allowed to bring peanut butter or coffee in your luggage when you fly on American airplanes... while we're talking of "illegal substances" (what are we talking about, here?)

    That film is quite entertaining but not all that good, funny though and I just love that song:D

    As for Amsterdam, I thought the coffee shops were the worst bit, cant stand the smell of weed. Amsterdam is one of the least threatening places I have been to, I didnt go anywhere were I was worried about my safety or anything (mainly because everyone was too stoned to be a problem after darm). Saw some pretty funny stuff though like the big american tourist who stumbled into my bed in the hostel and said sorry, I said 'its ok' and he said 's**** the beds talking to me' and collapsed, then his girlfriend turned up and didnt realise I was in the bed, sat on me and then collapsed on top of the other guy on the ground. Then there was the elderly gent in the RLD who turned to his wife and said 'dont worry dear, just keep looking straight ahead and we will be out in no time' whilst staring through windows. It is a really cool place.

    I know, Martin... I'm really worried, seeing as how the "War on Drugs" is going about as well as the "War on Terror"...

    :D :D :D :D

    ;) Peanut Butter. That's it Knight, that's what I'm referring to- Peanut Butter. Love the sh*t. ;)

    :more laughter. Crazy is rolling at this point:

    Stefan, coming from someone who is admittedly a regular "smoker" (Unless any of you are in Law Enforcement near Boston. In which case, I'm just kidding. It's all an act.), that kind of stuff would piss me off to no end!!! The ole' wacky tobaccy is essentially, in my opinion, the same thing as alcohol. If used within one's limits, it can be an enjoyable diversion. And since I don't drink alcohol (nope, not really at all), I find other diversions. Although I would not encourage anyone to break any laws, or encourage ANYONE to use drugs, I think the classification of mj as a drug should be the same classification as is given to alcohol- something illegal for minors but accessible to responsible adults. No one is debating that mj is a potentially dangerous drug- but so are alcohol and tobacco.
    :Crazy apologizes and steps down of his soapbox:

    Coffeeshops in Amsterdam to most American tourists (including my girlfriend, from what she told me) are an excuse to get WAY too lit up and essentially waste most of a vacation.
    In my case? They would merely allow me to briefly enjoy my vice while travelling abroad. An after dinner coffee, with a nice little accompaniment.

    By the way, Martin, yes, this one is. The most hi-jacked thread ever. I'd be willing to lay money on it. Now we're on Amsterdam, a certain evil weed and the drug laws, and peanut butter.

    This thread deserves a medal all by itself!

    KNIGHT--its a Flanders Rampant Lion.

    Stevin--no problem there--I think the Securite Screeners would gladly accept the smokes--might actually help them gain some brains when doing their jobs. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: Yeaaaahhhh Riiiiggghhhtt--i'll believe that when I see it.

    Hi Crazy--OK--i'll let you have the Marijuana-laced Brownies that they sell in Amsterdam. :cool:

    Stefan--if you liked the German coast areas--try Wilhelmshaven, Bremerhaven, Laboe and Moltenort--ahhh all great places to be. :D

    Hi Knight--if it is for a Belgian unit--I cant as I dont know much on them BUT--if it is for Legion Wallonie or SS Sturmbrigade Langemarck--I can tell you some about them. Their most famous Commander was Leon DeGrelle (SP?)

    Also--if thet poster never arrived to you--I do want to make sure you got something for your answering my quiz correctly--are you in the market for a VHS tape of a war movie--that came as a 2 tape set? ill send that to you as a consolation prize if you want it? It was only viewed once and is in excellent condition. I already gave the othe rmovie away to Steve in Florida.

    Anyway--please let me know on both these things--best wishes--Carl. [​IMG]
