Well, in fairness English is not his first language... that's where some of the confusion may have come from.

We actually discussed over this with Michell yesterday, apparently Dutch language has same word for steam and smoke, so I guess it covers it.

And naturally, it's our fault as English speakers that MitcheLL misinterpreted our words.

Even though I had said literally nothing in this thread, it's still somehow my fault that our esteemed Dutch Man-God MitcheLL3000 felt put-upon since he did not understand the difference between smoke and steam in a foreign language.

Steam and smoke are the same word not even in dutch.

Steam = Stoom
Smoke = Rook

Probely some kind of misunderstanding between the USA and the Netherlands here:P

All credit to our Dutch,Spanish,Italian and any other members to whom English is not their native language.They are all more educated than me as I only speak/write English, most of the time badly.

I'm not knocking anyone who speaks English as a second language... they're doing a hell of a lot better than I would if I had to try to speak Dutch.

Rather I'm giving MitcheLL shit because frankly, he is a moron of the highest degree who needs to just go away.

Oh, you think that because you had a conversation with Gollevainen that you're suddenly untouchable? LOL.

@ Colosseum: If we hadnt sold new york to the brits for 1 guilder (0.61 Dollar) a long time ago you would speak dutch instead of english:P

Maybe its just better to stop this ridiculous ''language battle'' it would be better for the atmosphere in the bucket.
