Amsterdam has a lot more to offer than drugs and $25 (or €25) hookers.

I was quoting Rollah, and it went haywire - I was indicating his lack of mastery of the quoting system as further proof, and I should have been more careful - d'oh!

It has been the standard and proper procedure on previous instances of such remarks with a hint of sarcastic nature buried within the semantics, for me to respond in a manner not atypical of the greatest civil servant of them all, the late Sir Humphrey Appleby, whose character was rendered so flawlessly two decades ago by Sir Nigel Hawthorne; such a procedure generally involves the intentional elongation of any and all words applicable to the situation, and generally making as full a use of the English language as is humanly possible, within the confines of the relatively miniscule discitation - of which I am uncertain of the precise spelling - in such a way as to use many more words than are of the utmost necessity to the explanatory remark. However, on this specific occasion, I have made a decision to act contrary to the normal and established ritual proceedings, as there are question marks raised over the worthiness of the subject whom I am causing the subjection of such a discourse.

Oh, I see. In that case, I'm in full agreement. Just got a little paranoid . . .

Right. About half of the regular posters on this site know a lot more information than this guy thinks. Only an idiot will play others for idiots.

Agreed - I guess I was just worried when I saw that Rollah's misuse of the quote thing had caused it to happen on my post as well - duh!

Yes - Raw sewage in the canals! Just kidding, Thomas. (Although it is true) Actually, Amsterdam is a beautiful city with beautiful architecture, etc. It's too bad that all most Americans think of when they think of Amsterdam is the Red Light District. I must say it is a sight to see, however. [:0]

Is it really that unique for Holland? For me it's no big deal tyo have a red light district. There was one a few hundred meters from my school... guess where we went during breaks [}:)]

Brains,

You have to remember we Americans and a few Brits tend to be the biggest prudes on Earth. Sure, we have prostitutes and illegal drugs, but we like to pretend that we don't. In other words, we don't put them out in the open. It's just kind of shocking at first from the American perspective to see it right in front of you. I know Copenhagen has a "Red Light District" area as well. It seems to be contained a little better than the one in Amsterdam. (I didn't even see it when I was there - and I walked all over town)
I must admit the Red Light District seemed a bit dirty. (Literally - not figuratively) I did like Amsterdam on the whole, however.


Just my impression. Maybe I'll have to spend some more time there. When's Paul playing there? [;)]
