Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

Three seconds, not counting the second it took to close the tab.

Where does that thing come from?

I've seen commericals here in The Netherlands promoting it as a mobile phone download. Is this one of those "it's-a-hype-let's-all-follow-like-sheep" things?  ::)

way i understand, the song is a humorous twist to a piece of some opera or song or musical or something in the netherlands or some other place on your side of the ocean.  I'm pretty sure it's netherlands though.

You're kidding? Well I guess that's another succesful export product (next to xtc, weed and heineken)... ::)

I'm close to ten minutes so far, I'm wondering if I want to shoot for the rest of the night.  :D
I may try to help you if I think I can, but remember I am just a n00b!

Yea, I'll have to jump on with the possibly quite catchy group on this one. It's not something I'd sit and really listen to (obviously), but it's not like one of those incredibly annoying things that you could have running over and over... besides, I've just had it going barely under 3 minutes so far ;)

It's catchy enough that I've actually given thought to trying to learn the lyrics lol... now that would cool since I could then annoy others whenever I wanted!  :o

OK, I shut it off at 23:15. I could have let it go for a bit longer, but I had to do some other things that required sound :P hehe. Honestly, if you get going on something else, it's not that hard to block it out and use it as white noise.

Here's one way of keeping track of how long you listen:
