Oh! I think you'll probably get this one, but it's intresting, and about the only thing I know about the Netherlands in the 2nd world war...

How long did the Netherlands hold out for before succumbing to Germany in the 2nd world war?

The German plan was to capture The Hague with paratroopers, capture the queen and make her to surrender. So the plan was to defeat the Netherlands in 1 day :wink:

Um...capt....you do know Sjoerd is Dutch and is studying history at uni? :lol:

It's a bit like me asking you questions from the Bible (except that you wouldn't know the answers :lol:)

In fact here are three questions from the Bible for you to answer. As my knowledge of the Bible is shaky (though probably better than yours :D ), I can't guarentee my answers are correct;

a) At what exact time was JC crucified?
b) Why did Judas kiss JC in the Garden of Gethsemane?
c) What did Paul think of long hair on men?
