Spain has been and will always be better than the Netherlands. With a more widely used language a better soccer team, years of culture, much variety of food with better taste, better traditions and the list can continue. Many say that Spain has been in a "siesta" for three centuries, I beg to differ. Spain has, yes, remained neutral in most wars, but what is war but a bunch of people killing each other. Spain is very diverse with Spanish as a predominant language, but with many different languages to add to the culture and history of Spain. Spain is also one of the oldest founded countries in the World. What is netherlands but nothing but a territory previously owned by Spain until we gave them their independence. The Netherlands is nothing.

This is a very humerous statement and therefore I will have to inform you that this is the most false statement I have ever heard in my life. Now first let me get to the negatives of Espana. First of all, the majority of its citizens are pretty smelly. Most Spanish people smell like they haven't taken a shower in days, sometimes weeks. My next point is what I say to all my friends when debating this. Spain has been in a "siesta" for 3 centuries and it is funny you bring this up. Spain was the greatest power in the world at one point in the 15 and 1600's. Today, however, the drowsy Spanish people lack the energy needed to wipe out an entire native population, would rather bum around Europe then conduct a brutal Inquisition and it lost the contact information for its colonies centuries ago. I have been to Spain. Everyone wakes up at noon and goes back to bed at 3. They just decide to sleep whereever they can. This results in a terrible economy and widespread poverty in Spain. Its people just take too many naps.
Another thing, Spanish cuisine is a joke. Its "national" dish, which they stole from the ARABS, paella is Spain's sole cultural contribution in the past 500 years and is a fried dish consisting of rice, shrimp, pork, lobster, sardines, beef, squid, rope, Cornish game hens, more pork, goose, antlers, liver, baby back ribs, babies, snails, lasagna, paper towels, wristwatches, vegetables, and anything else in arm's reach that's not too heavy.
Now to Holland. Holland is glorious in everything. Although they have never been the greatest empire in the world, they have remained a reliable go-to country. They are among the most foward thiniking countries in the world, legalizing marajuana and prostitution where these usually serious issues, are simple there to Dutch citizens and are "no-biggie". Holland has given us Santa Claus, clogs, dykes, dikes, space cakes and plenty of other great things. Plus there people are not extremely ugly and smelly like Spanish. Although Javier Bardem, damnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.
