You are very welcome, hope you will have a nice stay here :-)

Thank you. I plan to and you're sure making me feel welcome. As far as I can tell, NL seems like a great country, great culture and I'll be glad to get out of Babylon (USA)!

Hope more Americans come here :-) :5a:

No, lOl

But not too far away from CS though. I work for Shell. About 10 min away from CS.

You work for one of the ministries?
 Quoting: Psych


Shell is in Rijswijk right, near the Patent office (Octrooi bureau)?

Yeah, I work for NL Agency, just 5 min of CS.
 Quoting: MOUZTY_NL


I live on the other side of that street, I see that building when I walk out of my door. lOl

In Rijswijk there is one too but I am at the headquarters at the Carel van Bylandtlaan.

This building. lOl

[link to www.greenpeace.nl]

This was last week on Friday. They barricaded two entrees so we couldn't get in. But the dummies forgot there was a third entree.

Hilarious stuff. chuckle
 Quoting: Psych




LOL! It looks like some of the greenpeace are on zip lines too. Did cops haul them off?
 Quoting: aNONaMITTy


Well, the cops first removed the barricades and then sorta waited for those on the zip lines to come down. I was already at work when that happened so not sure how long it took but what I have been told, they were down pretty quick.

lOl

Gotta say, they really put in some effort this time. This was the third time this year and the other two kinda sucked.

Re: The Netherlands next superpower
I love the Netherlands, but They have a serious sea level problem.

Atlantis ruled the world at one time, but they couldnt stop mother nature.

I dont wish anything bad to happen to them, but they are too vulnerable to terrorist attack to be a superpower.

One bomb against one of the levies... would be worse than hurrican Katrina.
 Quoting: chris999


You don't understand our state of the art water management. A lot of our land is designed to be able to be drowned. There are a lot of safety nets so to speak. We always have been sea people and changing our land to be compatible with as well the sea as the important river and canal routes.

In fact in the 80-year war with the Spanish we drowned our land on purpose for a succesful defense.

We had a flood in 1953 tho, in Zeeland after a SW floodstorm, and thousands of lives were lost. We learnt from that and we finished the Delta-Werken sea-barriers.

Nowadays we claim land back of the sea, by dumping billions of tons of sand. We just completed Maasvlakte 2, another expansion for Rotterdam seaport.

OMG we're good.

You don't understand our state of the art water management. A lot of our land is designed to be able to be drowned. There are a lot of safety nets so to speak. We always have been sea people and changing our land to be compatible with as well the sea as the important river and canal routes.

In fact in the 80-year war with the Spanish we drowned our land on purpose for a succesful defense.

We had a flood in 1953 tho, in Zeeland after a SW floodstorm, and thousands of lives were lost. We learnt from that and we finished the Delta-Werken sea-barriers.

Nowadays we claim land back of the sea, by dumping billions of tons of sand. We just completed Maasvlakte 2, another expansion for Rotterdam seaport.

The sea has always been our biggest foe, and friend!

While visiting a friend who lives in Badhoevdorp I asked to see where the little Dutch boy had stuck his finger in the dyke. I had heard this story as a littel boy. My friend and I drove to a very rough area near Amsterdam where there were ships and he showed me a bronze statue mounted on an old brick dyke of a little boy with his finger stuck in it.

I think so. I remember reading in a thread recently that some of the GLP'ers have never met another. And you two are within what....a mile or so of each other? LOL!

Re: The Netherlands next superpower
I love the Netherlands, but They have a serious sea level problem.

Atlantis ruled the world at one time, but they couldnt stop mother nature.

I dont wish anything bad to happen to them, but they are too vulnerable to terrorist attack to be a superpower.

One bomb against one of the levies... would be worse than hurrican Katrina.

You don't understand our state of the art water management. A lot of our land is designed to be able to be drowned. There are a lot of safety nets so to speak. We always have been sea people and changing our land to be compatible with as well the sea as the important river and canal routes.

In fact in the 80-year war with the Spanish we drowned our land on purpose for a succesful defense.

We had a flood in 1953 tho, in Zeeland after a SW floodstorm, and thousands of lives were lost. We learnt from that and we finished the Delta-Werken sea-barriers.

Nowadays we claim land back of the sea, by dumping billions of tons of sand. We just completed Maasvlakte 2, another expansion for Rotterdam seaport.

OMG we're good.

Where do you get the sand to do that? I do have to say when I look at NL from GoogleMaps, it does look like it would be easy for it to sink under water.

By dredging, we are kings of the dredge too!

The sea has always been our biggest foe, and friend! For sure we're vulnerable to a 100ft high tsunami/huge meteor in the north sea, but for most other stuff we're pretty much well protected nowadays. Again, many parts of our land have been designed and engineered to contain a lot of water in times of need. Rising sea-level will make for more innovative water engineering...

The Netherlands is one big water machine!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 972619




Very interesting. So how did the Dutch drown the land to win the war against the Spanish? I guess I could google it.
