    Vo, who are these names you mention? I've seeen Group94's stuff, assuming you mean the web design firm.

    Yeah, Group94 is one of the major belgian webdesign companies. And they work a few blocks away from here, and they're just cool people

    Marc Dutroux is a Belgian who took children with him, put them in his basement, raped them, let them die of starvation or murdered them. Wim Durdin and Yoko Maesen took their child to the park, tried to break it's neck, stabbed it with a knife and buried it in the park. They just went home and watched Big Brother for the rest of the evening. And Gellingen is the place where the gas blast recently occured.
    Wait, what?

    Yeah, you just get 'quietly taken care of'.

    Likes
    +Food: Mince and spuds, yum! :
    +Imported Food: We have some excellent Chinese and Italian restaurants.
    +Pretty Girls: but not those spide-y sluts (spide is a Northern Irish word for a pop culture trend follower. You know, hard lads and slags)
    +Proximity to the Republic of Ireland: Are southern neighbours are politically neutral and friendly.
    +Music: Snow Patrol and Ash are both from Northern Ireland and there are some excellent unsigned bands here right now.

    Dislikes
    -Little Racial Diversity: We don't have many immigrants except the owners of Chinese, Indian and Italian restaurants.
    -Sectarianism: The Protestants hate the Catholics and vice versa.
    -Violence: Stems from sectarianism
    -Terrorist Groups: Also due to sectarianism
    -Weather: It has rained for a bout 70% of this year so far.
    -Corrupt/Useless Politicians: The old Minister for Education used to be a leader of the IRA, a terrorist organisation, and Sinn Fein, one of Ireland's largest political parties is backed by the IRA. The DUP, rival party to Sinn Fein, is backed by the UVF, yet another terrorist organisation. Since the 60s Ireland has had three ceasefires and all have failed to lead to arms decommisioning.

    That's about it for now. I'll add more if I remember anything.
