Did someone say TFT?

I think that abbreviation should be abolished since nobody can agree on what it really means.

Once you have to wait at a border for a long time, you will realize that you're almost there

The "Low Countries" is actually only one country: The Netherlands. Belgium has much more areas over 10 meters in altitude, including significant portions of Flanders and all of Wallonia. Not to mention Luxembourg. Personally I think "Benelux" is a better term.

He probably meant that because the Netherlands is in fact plural. Funny vid, btw.

Nether (Neder) means "low" Nederland = Lowland. The Netherlands = De Nederlanden = Lowlands.

People ask me that question so much over here. What's the difference between Holland and The Netherlands? Why is their language Dutch? That doesn't sound logical to them either because it really looks like 'Deutsch' which is German. So a lot of people also ask me what language do they speak in your country.. Pretty poor knowledge of the world.

Why should high school students in Colorado know about the Netherlands? From the US perspective, the Netherlands is only a tiny country in Europe which doesn't really differ from the other countries, just like a US state is for us here. Nothing to really care about.
