This quiz will tell you: you will only pass if you grew up in a Dutch family.
 
To my surprise--no, astonishment--I did.  
 

100% - You're Definitely Dutch!
100% - You're Definitely Dutch![/size]

An alternative explanation is that I am reasonably well informed. And anyone who has watched soccer can surely tell you the Dutch national colors.

Just so you know, you didn't link the quiz (that I can see).

I think I found the quiz.

 

If that's it, I have no idea how Wilf scored 100%.

OK I got a hundred too but I consort with the practically Danish and there are a lot of similarities.

Me, too.    The above quiz (Wilf's) is more a test of general knowledge of Dutch culture.    Or good guessing.

I guess it's good guessing. I got a hundred also and guessed at least half of the answers :cool:

I also got 100%.  I have a feeling they give 100% to everybody.  (OTOH, those questions did not seem very hard.)

Have you all considered the possibility that we may all actually be Dutch?

They're either blue (home) or orange (away), so I answered red. :o 

 

Also answered ten kisses, guess they figured it was a make-out session.
