Hi folks!

Three Belgian cubers (Geert Bicler, Lars Vandenbergh and Ram Steenhaut) appeared on television and did an awesome job introducing the Belgians to our beloved sport. I'm so proud of it that I decided to add English subtitles so that the entire speedcubing community can enjoy the video. :D

Enjoy the video!

Pretty cool. But why is 'Glow in the dark' teh same in belgan!
In beglian ! Haha !
That's dutch, there is no such thing as belgian language :p (but as most dutch people speak good english it's not so uncommon for the to use a few english terms).

I watched it at Geert's place, and my dutch is good enough to understand but it's still cool to see some english subtitles.
I especially love Laure's comments :p She told me at Zonhoven Open that when we (cubers) go out in the world that everybody is like "waaaaw, you can solve the cube ! Amazing ! Those people are crazy !" but she was at the cube competition and she couldn't solve one she had exactly the opposite reaction : "Whaaat ? You can't solve a cube ? Really ? Not even a cross ? And you don't want to learn ? O.O You are crazy !" => totally loved the way she saw this ^^

I think it's a very good video!

It gives a very positive image of speedcubing, and whats most impressive: It gives lots of informations and a touch of spirit of cubing!

Good Job!

@Zoe, yeah i liked Lauras comments too, she told me mainly the same :-D

I don't think Flemish can really be considered as a language, it's a dialect. A Belgian one I must admit, but there are also a lot of dialects in the Netherlands... If you ask someone from the north part of Belgium and ask him what language he speaks he will most likely answer you : Dutch, because that's the "main language" that everybody uses to get understood everywhere ^^
Just as we have Walloon in the French part, but nobody will ever tell you "I speak Walloon" ! (Besides, not so many people actually really do anymore... dialects tend to be replaced by the official government/TV/school/internet language).
