Did you play that game, @Tim ? Imagine that's right up your alley...
I'm still working on it, actually. I have a love/hate relationship with it. Awesome gameplay and a really deep story. But the story depressing as hell as well, and I tend to waste a lot of time just exploring the countryside or engaging in mundane tasks.

Same here. Our highlight is the "hill country," for a couple of bumps on the map (though it's really beautiful there). I love Texas for it's varied cultures, but in terms of scenery, it generally sucks

Jeff might like this. I don't even know why this was recommended by YouTube (I swear, I've barely looked up gun vids lately, and none that involved, uhm, Asian shooters who identify as female)

There's apparently a village in Holland called "Made".

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Made,_Netherlands

If you're a male who's from there, would that make you a Made Man?

Is it true that in 1672 a group of angry Dutch citizens killed and ate the Prime Minister? epic.

Yes, it happened right here in The Hague. He and his brother were tortured, lynched and their bodies torn to pieces, sold as souvenirs and even eaten. The prison where Johan was locked up prior to his execution is now a museum. Ironically the house where his brother Cornelis lived is now a restaurant.

People were in a frenzy because of rumors about the De Witt brothers' involvement in a Spanish plot against the Dutch royal family. The problem was that both brothers were innocent. But that only became apparent later.

To make up for it, the City erected a statue of Johan and named a street after Cornelis.

I need to visit the Netherlands some day . Our plans are to visit Germany/Austria next year because we have several friends/relatives there so maybe we'll swing by the Netherlands.

Holland is one of the better countries in Western Europe, I think. It's pretty stable here. So far we've managed to avoid the sort of problems that our neighbors struggle with.

We had a Dutch guy come work at my place for a couple of years several years ago. It was part of some exchange program that my work had with his work. Nice guy. Tall. Probably could have used a more frequent shower schedule though .

Disgusting! He should have had his passport revoked. We cannot have people like him giving us a bad name abroad!

It may have been an April Fools joke gone bad.
