    Taartenwinkel is a small online shop that delivers cakes and pies. Heard the owner on the radio that they had an order to supply a cake in the shape of the yellow jersey for each one of Rabobanks 60.000 employees in Holland, if...

    Poor them :p

    except maybe Evans' team which is now suing Astana for millions, for loss of publicity since Cadel would have been up there on the podium to claim his TT stage win, etc.

    Sad news though for Rabobank

    out of all of this though....will people FINALLY stop confusing DUTCH and DANE??

    pisses me off to no end :mad::eek::D

    All so true.. Then again, dont ask me to identify each of your states.. When asked I usually just say I live bout 50 kM from amsterdam (which gives an whole different line of associations but ah well :rolleyes: )

    We prefer to think of that entire area as the "IKEA-land" and leave it at that. It's too difficult to get into details.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't IKEA Swedish? I'm sure there's an IKEA store in Denmark somewhere but the company itself is based in Sweden and founded by a Swede. Just a technicality.

    Thats exactly what he meant I think.. Instead of having to be able to identify and distinguish each and every northern European country he identifies the whole region as Ikea land.. Guess Ikea land starts somewhere around Estland and runs all the way down to Luxembourg in his perspective :)

    I dont think (or didnt know) Bro Deal is Russian. Anyway Russia would have been named Germany as well I suppose.

    Did you know that Norway, has the highest proportion of dollar millionaires per head of population in the world?

    15% of Norwegians have a nett value greater than $1m !
    (nett value = value of everything they own, less the value of everything they owe).
