When I was in the military, we would call the situation a “clusterfuck - a disastrously mishandled situation or undertaking”.


Seems appropriate!

oh I remember that word when I was serving as well. "rush to wait and wait to rush" ends up causing most clusterfuck

@Giles out of curiousity, is the EU being set up as a seperate entity the way you guys did with IH America?

Not quite.  We are in the process of setting up a taxable presence in the Netherlands, but the Netherlands is unique in that we can do that without registering a company.  In the US, we had to do both...

@Giles how’s the progress coming along learning the 27 languages?  Are you going to learn them all or split them up amongst the crew?  I may have found a chart that could be helpful.  Delete if needed:

ahh right. I'm guessing it's the same as what a few major companies like nike do. I did notice that some of their worldwide sales are billed through the Netherlands.. I'm assuming the process would be somewhat similar to that?

I'll let you know when we'/re large as Nike.....

Seriously though, the Netherlands has always been a trading nation and it is well-positioned to ship to the whole of the EU.

not  to be one of those people but in the interest of clarity the French quote is "go fuck yourself."
should have connard at the end.  Tradition is important.
Those are my principles, and if you don't like them...
Well, I have others.

I'm going to be that person too, with a cherry on top.

The Norwegian phrase used in the poster actually means "To the devil with you" or literally "The devil [Faen] take you [ta deg]". It is especially incongruous here as the Danish have the same phrase, "Fanden tar deg", but in the above poster they use the anglicised "Fuck deg", which we also use in Norway "Føkk deg". The same options are available in Swedish, but the poster suggests they use "knulla dig", which is entirely inappropriate as it it describes the desire to make love to someone, as opposed to the desire for them to disappear into the pits of hell.

Teacher by day, teacher by night. Being an irritating twat is just a hobby. Sorry  ;D

Imagine the horror of trying to tell some government tax official to go to hell and you end up on a date with them!  :D

Even "I love you" sounds like a threat in German.  ???
