    We're all just tribal... eg... we're just sacks of DNAs that favor other sacks of DNAs that are related to us.

    I prefer it when my sack of DNA favors someone who isn't related to me.

    LOL this is funny and informative. I really didn't know the difference between the 3 words until today.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    I don't understand the relationship between Scotland and England. England conquered Scotland? That can't be true because the Scots don't seem to be the type of people who take well to being conquered. They have separate parliaments, but Scotland does not have a prime minister? My guess would be that England has used its financial dominance to keep Scotland from declaring full independence, and the Scots don't mind because they see themselves as equal partners in the country.

    @Bas: Proves that Seinfeld isn't a reliable source of information.

    For those who don't know:
    the Netherlands = the country, consisting of 12 provinces
    Holland = two of the provinces (North and South Holland), which together encompass the "Randstad", the most populous urban sprawl in the Netherlands. Amsterdam is in North Holland.
    Dutch = the people and the language of the Netherlands; the word comes from Diets, which shares the same roots as Deutsch (German for German).

    So while I can say I'm both Dutch and from Holland (South Holland to be exact), being Dutch doesn't necessarily mean you're from Holland. Smiley

    The England/Scotland wars rampaged for quite a while, but England did win, and took the Stone of Scone away from the Scots and brought them under the English monarchy. Then there was a few be-headings. The Scots don't see themselves as equal partners now, they keep complaining about their status, even with their own parliament. Some claim the oil revenue would be enough for them to go it alone, but yea, it'd be financial suicide
