http://www.dailymail.co.uk/ is quickly becoming my favorite website. I should I say favourite.

I love the "US Showbiz" tab, and I get to keep up all the crazy gossip in Hwood. The comments are usually on point too.

Why the abbot of the Trinity Lavra? That is Patriarch Kirill, and I think that this is more likely one of the wooden churches in Kizhi, Karelia, than one of the properties in the Holy Trinity- St. Sergius Lavra.

The priests there are assigned from the Lavra.  Yes, it is in Antarctica.

So I guess my Sony headphones are BUSTED. They no longer play that tight bass like they used to. Lost its steam.

Back to Thailand! And back to my other cans.

Holland is only one region within the Netherlands. It really grinds the other regions' gears when people use Holland as a synonym for the Netherlands.

In my humble opinion all OC.net posters are in some sense orthonormians, all their posts orthonormianistic, because each, knowingly or not, professes the not-yet-defunct creed of orthonormianism.
How can we be orthonormianistic (sic) if we don't understand what orthonorm is saying for most of the time?

Well actually you are. All our understanding of his posts are nothing but misunderstanding.

We never understand each other.

It is around here. "Alankomaat" is only for written and/or official language. Colloquial form is "Hollanti".

But then again the same logic applies to many other countries too.

UK = Englanti
US = Amerikka

etc.

In Spanish, Netherlands is "Países Bajos", but I have never, ever heard anyone refer to it that way.  Always "Holanda."

I was playing Civ V a few months ago and I didn't like the fact that the nation ruled by William of Orange was called "The Netherlands." It meant that he would come up as William of The Netherlands, which bugged me immensely because of the unnecessary capitalization. However, if I renamed it to "the Netherlands" it would appear in lists like that, with the first letter always being lower case. This bugged me just as much.

So I just called it "Holland." ;D

There's more in their channel and here.

Watching the video where they take Saraa to church, and apparently they're Catholic?

Maybe it is fake.

I'm pretty sure it's L'amour est un oiseau rebelle, que nul ne peux apprivioiser .
