Hi Guys, I'd like to ask you a favor of helping me on some company research. Not selling anything here, not going to tell you what company it is, unless you really want me to. The thing i'm…Continue

Introduction

Gentlemen,As it seems to be the tradition to introduce oneself in this thread, here goes.My name is Victor, and i am a 22-year old student of Business Administration.I was born in Oman, after which i was quickly spirited away to live in lovely Malaysia for six years. After that we went to my home country: The Netherlands.Apart from my study, i now mostly concern myself with the finer delights in life: cooking, eating, drinking, smoking, reading and dressing. As a hobby combined with a job, i work as a (very amateur) small arms historian in the Delft Army Museum.You will notice that sports is, unfortunately, not on that list.I used to be somewhat fanatic, mostly in sailing, golf and hockey (fieldhockey that is, you freezing North-American types!). On a beautiful morning in march, due to an unfortunate tactical decision on the field, my head was ungently contacted by one of my team members knees. This resulted in lots of sanguinem (blood) and cruorem (gore) on his part, and a whiplash on mine.That pretty much rendered me useless for, well, everything, and so the recovery started.Now, a year later, i have just completed my first round of golf, and i hope this summer will prove i'm fit enough to sail a boat, and teach that too (one of my fondest hobbies).On the Art of Manliness i hope to find answers for my questions, questions for my answers, and a good place to improve and practice my grasp of the English language.Furthermore, i'm absolutely delighted to find a community of people who would not regard it as 'weird' or 'over the top' to dress well, behave well, and discuss the fine things in life ranging from a good shave to the sweatiest, done to earth, nature-people things.Sincerely,The Dutch Dastard

Silly Netherlands

This is planet earth

And this is The Netherlands and this is Holland. Many people think Holland is the capital of Amsterdam. So if you think so right now, you are wrong.

Since ancient times we have survived on cheese and stamppot and selling slaves and spices. Stamppot is a dish where you take good food and potatoes and mash it to a pulp and eat it with a plastic sausage that you buy at a clothing and utility store.

Then in the 1600 we invented making land with windmills…

The girl: Part two

Posted on November 19, 2012 at 3:59pm 0 Comments

Rather taken aback, but not without my wit I told her she could have my number, or have a drink with me now. She opted for the latter, and we chose a semi-quiet place at the far end of the bar. She drank wine, I drank beer, and we both drank like sailors. Somehow we were familiar with each other, and before long I told her the things that I know put off most women, and enthrall another kind. I told her about how at age 18 I had an affair with a 39-year old woman, married with two children. I…

The girl: Part one

Posted on November 18, 2012 at 3:13pm 0 Comments

I was bored, looking around. The formula of the student bar was good; open early, serve cheap beer, close early. The beer was exceptionally cheap today, as they were being paid for by the university to encourage first year students to get to know each other. My class mates were two or three years my juniors, and we were right on the edge of ages where those numbers still matter. Conversation died down to my so called mentor and I. In age my peer, in this study my senior, but socially an…
