Dutch Word of the Day
gek: crazy
Dit is te gek.
This is too crazy.

Some cocaine addict in Dussen, Netherlands, was leading the cops on a high speed chase through a cornfield. This is the pattern in the field he left behind. It’s like those atrocious Family Circus cartoons that trace the steps of the little boy through the neighborhood. Except, of course, on cocaine, which is a helluva drug. I’m just amazed by the amount of overlapping swirls, like some kind of avante gard spin on Celtic iron work.

I hadn’t heard Dussen mentioned all the time I was in Amsterdam. You don’t really hear much about the rest of the Netherlands when you’re in Amsterdam. It’s in the southeast, closer to Zeeland than Amsterdam. But I’m sure this’ll put them on the map. This is probably visible from space.
