Did you know that Vader means Father in Dutch? I do, because I am in Belgium. So suck on that, bitches. Sheds a whole new light on Star Wars.
This keyboard is even worse than the last one. Salut or whatever.

Happy headcold birthday! Always jealous of anyone who isn't in the states right now. Belgian beer is primo! See if you can find Maredsous on tap anywhere.

If you go out for dinner with friends, be sure to split the bill according to what each of you ordered.
They have name for this practice in countries that speak Dutch. I just can't remember what it is.

LOL, sure does shed a new light on Star Wars. Have fun!
jake, I'm pretty sure you're referring to "Eternal Egypt" and that's also where we got the phrase "going Dutch" from (even though that was probably painfully obvious)!

Umm dude, you only JUST worked that out?
It was pretty obvious. I'm pretty sure I worked that out when I was about 12.

Oh, and apparently Darth is an abbreviation for Dark Lord of the Sith.
Which does not shed 'a whole new light' on Star Wars.
Darth Vader is the 'Dark Father of the Sith' who happens to be Luke Skywalker's daddy.
So in essence all his name does is point out something thats pretty obvious if you read the books or watch the movies.
Maybe you should stick to beer and chocolate sampling while your'e in belgium - and less fussng with foreign keyboards.
And stop calling us bitches...bitch.

Did you know that when the Frenchs translated Star Wars in the seventies, they transformed the name of Darth Vader into Dark Vador because Darth was to close to “tarte” (a common adjective for something dull) and so, distributors were afraid that the character made french-speaking people laugh instead of scary them!!!

De Douche.......is Dutch for douche. Dan is Dutch for Dan. De Elf is Ducth for Fairy
Vetig is Dutch for Fatty

your blog is getting lamer and lamer. Its not bad enough that you never update it, now you just talk complete shit!!
By , at 7:58 AM
What's up with all the negativity toward Dan? His site is still funny. He's on vacation, so I don't expect the site to be updated every day. Sometimes people have other stuff going on in their lives & don't have time to post a blog every minute. Plus, with all the dicks on here lateley, I'd retreat away from them too.
Dan, I hope you have a great time in Europe & keep up the fun when you get back!!!

Yes, apparently the wrong crowd has discovered dan. Bummer. Maybe it's time to use one of those "approve this comment?" features?
We still love you dan. Even though you get to travel to foreign countries and we're stuck here in our real lives.....

Man, when did someones blog become other peoples daily life? Well mine of course but geesh, you have to come on here and talk crap... geesh... I am not dutch but here in texas we just call people like you meanies assholes.
By , at 10:23 PM
Does that mean that in the future the Dutch are the first people to colonize outerspace?

How come other people can post anonymously and I cannot. Not that i want to, it's just my log in seems to be all messed up...
Hope You're having a great time. Happy birthday!!!!

Oh look it finally worked!

Happy b-day, Dan. Hey, weren't you just in Europe, oh, a year ago or so? Am I imagining things? Who gets to travel so much? Europe, Vegas, Europe again...sometimes I wish I were single again.
Where are you off to next? You should let us guess...sort of a Where's Waldo kinda thing. I'm thinking you'll continue east and hit Germany next?

I agree with cutting the gay euphemisms and general 'put downs'. They demean us all and really reflect the purile state of mind some people choose to adopt.
FATTY (and anonymous fellows of similar charming identity) - how about leaving an intelligent opinion once in a while? All you succeed in doing is sounding about as advanced as cro-magnon man.
Constructive comments please!

Being nice....so easy even a caveman can do it!
By Michelle, at 6:29 PM
Yeah - I guess that was pretty mean to poor old cavemen.
At least they had the excuse of ACTUALLY having a tiny brain as opposed to just being pathetic.
Sigh...and thats even more depressing!
Apologies all cavemen!
