We (dutch) beat Spain (and most of the catholic church) in the 80 year war.
And got very rich in the process.
Golden Age and all that.

And isn’t that the “home” of the Dutch Indies Trading Company that positively RULED the 5 seas for a century or more?  Small in size, maybe, but BIG in influence! wink

Maybe it’s actually the other way around. The Illuminati took care of all the Bavarians. Those who claim to be Bavarian are really Illuminati in disguise.  Making creme pies. Yums.

The Netherlands, of which Unfairly Balanced is talking, is definitely smaller than the UK.

Amazing. Usually males fight over who has the bigger one…

Isn’t the Black Forest in Bavaria? I suppose I could see the Illuminati trying to go in there and lighten it up a bit. But the forest was just too strong for them and beat them down.
