    "Orange coloured carrots"
    See here is the thing, there are actually so many vareties of Carrots and the Dutch essentially forced all the others out of the major market.
    We shouldn't be thanking them, we should be cursing them for reducing the variety of carrots that are commonly available
    Is this still revelant?

    Just about EVERY DJ who's making electronic music these days is Dutch.
    It's actually a running joke with my oldest son, where "DJ's" means Dutch people/things in general. 😂😂

    Informative Take :) Would you please elaborate on the orange-colored carrots? Hahaha I just find it strange that it made the list because orange is the general color for carrots.
    • A long, long time ago corrals were all sorts of different colors which you can still find but orange carrots were cultivated by the Dutch

    So they invented capitalism, donuts, gin l, and the thermostat. I do enjoy donuts. But I always thought the Russians invented Gin. Or is that Vodka? Anyways, gives a good insight on who really invented things people enjoy
    • I am pretty sure the Russians invented vodka. I don't know when though.

    Haha cool. I'm dutch and even I didn't know we invented gin 😂 and I live in a farming town and no one here, except for the farmers of course, wear klompen XD don't even know what you'd call those in English lol

      We know gin as jenever. Kleine stadjes als Schiedam floreerden hier destijds in.

    The Olympic flame is Greek, it's been there since the start of the Olympic games. However, the Olympic torch relay was actually invented by a German man called Carl Diem.
