I've never been in Denmark myself but I remember a punk song from the
seventies called "I hate the Dutch" (so obscure I can't even find it on
Google). It went on for minutes about how bad the Dutch are and then the
finale came: "There's only one type worse than them and that's the...

Yes, that is what we have been talking about those students in Germany.
It has become apparent that more and more students are becoming
'perpetual scholars'. They would study for 10 years or so and achieve
PhD only to work fewer years before collecting their pensions.
It has become a problem in Sweden, too, with more and more people
'slacking off' and taking up more of welfare system.
Well yes we have seen some of those. But you can not get more that 6 years
of "scool aid". So if you wish to spend more than that you have to pay your
And yes we do have a lot of people on medicalcare. But I guess that this is
one of the things you get with a full blown welfare system...
I am happy with the system. It has helped my wife since she had a whip lash

Hi, I have a 2000 Mercedes S500, I had the same problem, change over to

they are an utterly superb match for the S class. They are much quieter
and hold the road wonderfully on the 18" wheels from Mercedes. Cost me

Have a try of a CL600 and see what I mean, the dealers are doing deals

is a dream and makes the V8 look a little jumpy, 500 horse power and
yet smooth as silk, the car of kings.
