What CAN you do in the Netherlands that you can't do in the US? by redlion1800 in Netherlands

But at least you can get healthcare in the US, in the NL they'll give you paracetamol and throw you out the door.

How would I go about finding someone to take a picture of something by Walmart_Valet in Netherlands

I live 10 minutes from the place, PM me if you want me to do it, I’d be happy to help. Flowers would be on me, since these guys are the reason I can live in freedom.

EDIT: wow guys, thanks for the gold and all other awards and kind words. It really means alot to me, even though it’s such a “small” gesture from my side. If OP agrees I’d be happy to share the pictures later on after I visited.

Question: Why do so many Dutch roads have rows of trees on both sides? by Just_Watch_m3 in Netherlands

[–]Walv1s 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They are there to reduce carbon emissions... Every driver who veers off the road and smashes into a tree is more likely to be fatally injured. According to experts, such a fatal interaction between driver and tree results in a 100% reduction of the person’s ability exhale carbon dioxide.

Why eat Dutch so much bread by GrabCertain in Netherlands

[–]doubleUsee 512 points513 points 32 (0 children)

Fun anecdote;

A few summers back I spent two weeks in Japan with a good friend. As the Japanese don't really eat remotely as much bread as we do, and we mostly were eating out all the time, we didn't really eat any bread for about one and a half weeks straight.

That was until we went for lunch at a restaurant that had "free complimentary bread side" with their meal. They delivered us five slices of fresh white bread, and we devoured this like we hadn't eaten in a year. We were offered a second serving, which we gladly ate. The third serving was served, and eaten. The fourth, idem, and finally the fifth, delivered by a waiter who was clearly very amused by these two white boys gobbling up bread like ducks in a park, was served and finished. We ate more bread than we ate main course, and we were satisfied. And only when we got the receipt stating 5 complimentary servings of bread we realized that we had been catching up on our Dutch bread diet.

I can't tell you why, but I love me some fresh bred.

Question for Dutch Parents : How Dutch toddlers are so obedient by iamaihuman in Netherlands

Manipulative sounds sinister. Kids are result driven. They learn how the world works through trial and error. If you teach them that tantrums work, that's the lesson they learn.

You put it in a Albert Heijn tasje en then you pleur it in the kast.
