Rube Goldberg was Dutch?

You may not know this, but I was born in Holland. It's just one of the odd things you wouldn't expect to be true of me. But there you have's both true and odd.

So I feel an odd (what else?) sort of pride in this site my dad sent to me - it's the product page of the Dutch department store, HEMA, which was founded over 80 years ago, according to this picture. Once you get to the page, just watch.

(Note - the page is in Dutch, which I can't read. And you can't buy anything on it. Then again, the page is in Dutch, so what do I know?)

(Second note - I have no idea whether or not Rube Goldberg was Dutch. I doubt it.)
