Remember, its not quantity, its quality.  So don't look to me as a good source reference ;)

I got myself a new car the other day (well, newer) and the sound system in it is so bassy it vibrates right through my chest like nothing else. I had Whiplash on just now, turned it up and it don't half sound good.

Speaking of cars and vibrations:

Yesterday I was going to drive a friend from his flat to the train station. After a few hundred meters, I heard some noises that nearly sounded like something had suddenly loosened from the car and hit the ground. It persisted for seconds, and I was about to stop and check what was wrong, when I realized that it was some massive fireworks going off just a few hundred meters away. What was it?

This.

They were obviously finishing their set just as I was driving nearby.

Yeah, that keeps me busy- but summers harder, cause there are always kids around. Laugh if you will, but I'm trying to start up my own computer repair business. I'm advertising and going to schools looking to get clients. I have a lot to learn, but working at it seemsa the best way. I want to learn to repair Macs, cause no one around does.

Foro, what are the common titles for people in Dutch, like Mr Mrs Dr etc

Meneer is more when speaking.
When writing it's mostly "De heer"

When abbreviating that it goes like this > Dhr or Hr

Mr is something else, see below*.

Women: Mevrouw -> Mw

We have many titles in e.g. higher education. Unfortunately not much time to list them.
Is there a particular you want to know, then I'll certainly look it up. :)

Meanwhile, here is an English wiki page on Dutch academic degrees, which should provide a lot of info.
There are Dutch page on titles, (click and click) but I can't translate it all now. :/

I copied this from the English wiki page, it might be interesting to compare with the English rules:

...

For medical students the "doctorandus" degree is not equivalent to the MD (Medical Doctor) degree in the Anglo Saxon culture, but it is comparable to a MSc. Subsequently, it does not give the medical student to opportunity to treat patients. For this a minimum of two years additional study (internships) is required. The correct notation for a Dutch physician who did complete his or her medical studies, but did not pursue a doctor (PhD-like) study is "drs." (e.g. drs. Jansen) and not "dr." in medicine, as often used incorrectly. The professional notation "arts" (= physician) or similar can be added behind one's name, e.g. drs. Jansen, arts, or drs. Jansen, surgeon. This last notation is extremely rare, since Dutch surgeons commonly are only granted access to surgeon training/ positions after completing a promotion (PhD) successfully. In the old medical curriculum the title doctorandus (drs.) is obtained after at least 4 years of study, with the completion of 240 ECTS. After obtaining a physician diploma, Dutch physicians must still work as residents for two to six years in their preferred field of expertise to become a registered medical specialist.

A doctorandus in law is allowed to carry the title "meester" (master, abbreviated as mr*. Jansen) and some studies like for example physics grant the title "ingenieur" (engineer, noted as ir. Jansen). Not uncommon, the Dutch "drs." abbreviation can cause much confusion in other countries, since it is perceived as a person who has a PhD in multiple disciplines.

I simply cannot keep up with the explosion of posts in the Maiden Chat section of this forum. It's like Maiden have got a new album out, or something.

By the way, I quite like El Dorado. And contrary to what some say, I sort of like the artwork for the album as well. But the artwork on the single is very good.
