I would like to formally apologise to all the people of the Netherlands for absolutely butchering the pronunciation of your language.

Looks like it would be fun to run in the opposite direction. Tailwind all the way

Is that really the correct translation?

Physicist here: the F=k×v^2has nothing to do with turbulence. Each air molecule impacts a force proportional to it's speed (momentum conservation), and the number og passing air molecules is proportional to the wind speed. Therefore the total force is proportional to v^2

Only a billion Euros? That's nothing compared to Olkiluoto 3 in Finland. The construction began in 2005 with an estimated cost of 3,2 billion Euros. In 2012 it was estimated that the final construction costs would be 8,5 billion Euros. The reactor was supposed to be completed in 2009 but it is still under construction today. In December 2019 it was estimated that the reactor will be finished in November 2020 and power generation will start in March 2021.

Dear Netherlands,
Please never change.

I'm from not that far from there (zealandic flanders, 1 island over), we have a proud tradition of going to the beach in really bad storms to call the sea an impotent watery peasant, be sandblasted, and complement the lack of Germans on said beach.

What if you got like, a mini parachute or something and put on some inline skates going the other way

Tom, professional audio-video technician spent his professional life painfully aware that the worst thing for a microphone is wind. “Today, there’s an insane amount of wind.” Instant reaction: Let’s go where the wind is unabated and ask people who are completely out of breath how they feel.

Is there not a slight irony in mastering the tide while elevating lifestyles such that our emissions will inevitably rise the sea level to inundate the lands of their descendants?

Is the wind here stronger than the jet blasts from that famous beach?

I got to be honest we all love cycling videos this is just what I need to get it going the blood I love it. I always watch these before I go out and get my body moving. I love when I always watch one of these, and then put up my heavy playlist I love like Delta Parole and then I just go haaaaard!!!! Tactic hasnt let me down yet.

I do this every single day on my way to work and back. I'm really sure that I would win these races, with my years of experience with headwind, wherever I go.

I love Dutch cycling culture, loved visiting Amsterdam, but cycling into a 100 kilometer wind just doesn't sound very fun to me.

This actually felt more like a Tim Traveller video. You're different creators with different styles in different niches, but there's definitely an overlap.

Your translation of the poem is correct but missed the double meaning of the literal "traveling across" i.e. the dam has created a bridge allowing travel across the tides. I think in English "stand over" could be used in a similar fashion to indicate both a physical and metaphorical higher standing, although that too loses the sense of movement.
