I have two questions for you:
1. Why didn't you do what Nils suggested?
2. Why do you write your answers at the top, not below the questions?

By the way, when Nils says that you are lazy, I don't think that het
litterally means that. In fact, perhaps it is even better to make a
(high-res) photo. That way you don't make writing mistakes.
But if you have text, and it's a lot, don't put it on the list either. Put
it on and post a link to it here.

Kind regards,
