It sounds like the most American thing you can imagine: a majestic bald eagle, swooping out of the sky to seize an evil terrorist drone in its mighty talons, shortly before downing a burger and landing in a Trans Am, and doing a burnout. Well, this is all happening in the Netherlands. Except for the burger and Trans…
The Netherlands has an ambitious new energy goal: The country wants its entire electric rail system to run on 100% wind power within three years.
What goes up must come down, and when it is your aircraft’s turn to land, you definitely want everything working properly. Unfortunately for a pilot in the Netherlands this week, the nose gear on his Diamond Katana somehow became stuck. The pilot was seemingly aware of the issue and handled the situation as gracefully…
I don't care that this is technically an ad for a Dutch real estate company, or that it's also technically an ad for a guy selling his house. This is the most genius bit of real estate advertising I have ever seen, because they put an ACTUAL ROLLER COASTER IN A GUY'S HOUSE.
A driver crashed his monster truck into attendees of an automative exhibition, according to multiple Dutch media reports. At least three people are dead, one might be a child, and dozens of other adults and children are injured.
The concept of glow-in-the-dark roads is an incredibly simple piece of safety infrastructure that feels like it should have been implemented years ago. Finally, it has been—on the roads of the Netherlands
It's time for another one of those PSAs that I can't believe I have to say but holy crap why do I have to say this: do not, under any circumstances, try to beat a train at a street crossing. Ever. Doesn't matter if you're on a car, bike, plane, foot. Don't do it. You could end up like this Dutch woman almost did.
There's a famous scene from the movie Hot Fuzz where the characters fear that an old sea mine will detonate, so they run about 20 feet and jump over a low wall. Lucky for them, it doesn't explode, but after seeing this World War II sea mine explode on the beaches of Katwijk Aan Zee, Netherlands, I think they'd be…
This Porsche 964 RSR was pounding down the course of the Rally Hellendoorn in the Netherlands when it overcooked a corner, locked its brakes, and slammed into the barrier, sending it high into the air before landing upside down in a canal. What's that they say about old Porsches and murder?
Inexperienced drivers probably shouldn't drive fast, but even experienced drivers can find themselves in scary situations from time to time.
Hyundai's new ad campaign for their Santa Fe uses a tried-and-true sales tool—sex — but in a creepily delusional way. Seeing their latest ad, classily named Upskirt, is like decoding the MRI of a masturbating junior high boy and converting it into video.
This is why you always look twice before crossing an intersection. Just as a light turned green in Rotterdam, a gigantic mobile construction crane cam barreling through the intersection at high speed, collecting a little econobox in its path. Jeepers.
Dutch hoons do it right - they do it Bad Boys style. This time they got a Daihatsu Charade and it's going down. Hear its three cylinders of fury cry in vain as it flies to its death.
Remember the scene in "The Empire Strikes Back" where Yoda raises Luke Skywalker's X-Wing from the swamp? This Nissan GT-R owner staged a real-life reenactment in the Netherlands, after a misunderstanding with The Force.
The folks at TomTom had good intentions when they shared anonymous traffic data with the Dutch government. They'll use it for improving roads and light timing! Oh, they used it for installing speed cameras? NO MORE DATA FOR YOU!
Once again, Dutch engineering has come to humanity's aid, showing how anyone can turn a VW Golf into a human hamster wheel.
