    Belgians eat chocolate and waffles. Dutch eat... tulips?


    (Actually, I associate Belgium with the EU and Netherlands with strawberries, but the later is probably due to a personal incident involving them that just happened to take place there.)

    Essay almost finished, but apparently I managed to purchase 3 different books by Richard Feynman while writing it.

    I bought a random book on Amazon with my phone a few months ago. Damn Amazon 1-click buying. That's one click too few.

    Yes, though it's a rather recent one... There is some kind of border (even though it's been opened since the '50's when the BeNeLux was formed).

    And we've two languages, Dutch and Frisian, and they have two languages, Flemish (which does sound awesome and is related to Dutch) and Walonian (not sure if there's a difference between it and French, just like there is a difference between Flemish and Dutch).

    Hmm, strawberries! Ours are ripening nicely. Looks like we'll have a good harvest this year. And we're the cheese heads...

    Fries, yes. Mussels, that's also the specialty of one of our provinces.

    By asking the helpdesk. And I figured it was an e-book. I've not had to do it myself, but I've heard they'll reimburse you the money and remove the book.

    I tried to find a way to un-do it, but couldn't find any. It's way too late to this anymore, anyway. Still, good to know.

    Amazon has pretty good customer service actually, you should give them call or send an email. They just might refund you. =]

    I actually delted the book, when I didn't find any way to refund. Don't think I even see it anywhere anymore. Not sure, only two books that I bought on purpose were the GW ones (using Kindle for Android). Haven't touched the service since. I will when the next book comes out.
