A few days ago a German speaking man accidentally rammed his yacht into the pier at Scheningen. In the dead of night he accidentally mistook the brightly lit pier for the harbor. Opps? The ship is most likely total loss. When he rammed into the pier it also knocked over some of the fencing above. Oh, and he is responsible for getting it towed.
And in other news:
- Weed artwork which took three years to grow is accidentally cleared in 15 minutes from dutchnews.nl. An honest mistake, really. But three years to grow, 15 minutes to burn away with a weed burner. Also opps? (Actually, it sounds like a good way to decompress. Die weeds, die!)
- 3D printed home in Eindhoven welcomes tenants in European first, also from dutchnews.nl. I wonder if I can burn it down with a weed burner. …I kid, I kid.
- Miljoenen klompen in de opslag door corona: ‘Ik heb mensen moeten ontslaan’ from omroepgelderland.nl. In English: Millions of clogs in storage due to corona, ‘I had to fire workers’. No tourists, no clogs being sold. It makes sense. Come to the Netherlands, buy our clogs!
Happy Friday, everyone.
