Yeah, the highest natural point is some 170m, reaching 180 something as a result of a structure built on top of it. The highest structure is a radio mast reaching some 400m.

Sent from my phone.
It was the Danish Ministry of Environment that made this. The gist of it all is supposedly to bring attention to the possibilities present in free geodata, or something.

Read an article stating that though you have all those benefits most are still not happy with the system. Was it all a lie?

It was just one of the sources that I had to rewrite into a story so I guess they gave me bad sources... So glad I'm done with Dutch. What good is a course of a language I already speak yet the average English level her in NL is so low it is just stupid. And then we have that accent that makes it even worse.

I can still see us at the world championship soccer we had assembled a team the best of the best.
On paper we were the best! but despite the carnage (Click to show)
We were playing on grass not on paper

You call that spoiling? A government is supposed to serve its people, and that's what it is doing. That's only right and well.

Considering some of the BS that governments spend money on, this one does not look so bad.

if that happened here, the koch brothers would be making some kind of propaganda commercials against it.

"even more than we do"
Everything is relative

And yes paying an education up to a high level and even paying thousands of dollars just for studying is spoiling relative to other countries.
Par example studying here or in Britain costs thousands if not tens of thousands a year all which will be collected from you once you graduate and find a job it is just a loan to us. The Danish on the other hand get it funded for them and get money for studying.

I would remain in uni till 35 if they'd pay me to study biggrin.gif

That may have worked up until a few years ago when they changed the law regulating the study-support (loosely translated). Nowadays you have 72 months of secured funding. After that you would have to send in a request, which needs to be evaluated and accepted by the Ministry of Education.
Up until this law, many were "fund-riding" or freeloading on this funding, applying for simple courses, which granted funding, and would come once or twice a week, and get your ~5000DKK ($900+) a month.
