In Amsterdam, it's the best way to go.

Makes a man out of you ;-) Of course, rain sucks, but as long as it's
not raining too hard it's not really an issue for me.

Sure. I wouldn't want to bike from Amsterdam to Rotterdam either.

LOL :)

I don't mind for what reason they do it. Fact is that they do it.

Hey, I just had a three week holiday in Croatia with transportation
mostly by train. It made me a lot more positive about the NS.

Oh I agree to that. The problem IMHO is that currently the name of
Allah and/or the Islam are used a lot when people are killed, and we
don't see a massive counter-move from other (not mentally insane like
those fanatics) Islamitic people.

The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
