Isn't this one for the Moron thread?

While in France the flooding is getting ever more severe, some places in The Netherlands are also having trouble; notably the Watermuseum in Arnhem. Their slogan is "Touched by water."

Reminds me of a short-story I was working on in which a dentist -over the span of many years, decades even- leaves microscopic messages on the teeth of a patient whom he sends to various other specialists to view these tiny etchings and the dates and initials next to them.All under the disguise of an acutal "dental proceedure". One big tet-a-tet. One time they play tic-tac-toe and other times they just write puns and jokes to one another; sometimes which can only be seen with infralight devices. All while escaping the suspicion of the patient. Because they have a bet riding on the outcome of who will quit first, neither dental specialist wants to forfeit to the other. It began as a simple prank but then spiraled out of control.

Lol, there is a similar story happening in the movie a serious man by the Coen-brothers: A jewish dentist discovers engravings of hebrew letters in the teeth of a goy (non jewish person).

For those of you with well-lined pockets: there's a very interesting renaissance painting for sale at Tefaf.
This portrait of Jesus was painted over in the 1800s. The initially dreary painting of a brown man in a brown robe on a brown background, turned out to be an almost modern painting of a naked savior with flashy pastel background.

Turned up yesterday at little town/ village, called Daylesford with the wife to meet my parents for lunch- even drove the Hillman there (about 50km) and low and behold all the streets were closed off so had to park away from main street. Throught something was up (we were early) when we went into a Cafe and were served by a 6ft4 guy in stillettos and a dress - local Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Daylesford
http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/rea...e42e488f33da16

We had no idea this was on luckily it had just finished when we got there for lunch with parents which was was nice but good god those lesbians were as ugly as sin- not that the guys in dresses were any better

Cool, I've brushed up against a few Hillman Hunters over the years.....The first was an old white 67-68 wagon with a weird three on the tree plus overdrive arrangement that I could never get spare parts for. I did a good 50 to 60,000 slooooow miles in that old thing. Eventually, when it was completely worn out, I filled it with rubbish and abandoned it, with the engine running at the local landfill :lol: Suddenly, and without warning I inherited a late 70's multi coloured sedan that an unknown number of fools with tools had performed extensive modifications on and to, which had made the thing dangerously fast (for those days) and due to the chopped suspension, a little vague and twitchy in the steering which made for many many exciting journeys. The novelty of the car trying to kill me when I least expected it soon wore off and I donated it to a friend to enter in a demolition derby, it met a fiery end, I took pictures.....The last and final Hunter was an immaculate gold 78ish GT which had never been put away wet. The one previous owner had purchased every accessory known to 1970's man and had polished and serviced the thing to within an inch of it's life. We did mega miles in that car, it hung around the family for well over a decade before the ubiquitous drunken nephew wrote it off in spectacular fashion. Naturally he came away without a scratch or memory of what had happened and was physically ill when I showed him what was left of the poor old GT a couple of days later. Truth be told, his unscathed escape was nothing short of miraculous, it was a good life lesson for the little punk, he lost his drivers license for a couple of years and had to go through another couple of years as a restricted (zero alcohol) driver, straightened him out that's for sure.....
I gave him the clock from that car for his 21st birthday, the clock and a hubcap were about all that was left of the old GT.

No more Hunters Eddie :( these days it's all Japanese, faulty air-bags and all.....

the motorbikes mostly British though :lol:

To honor that the city of Leeuwarden was named Cultural Capital of 2018, the province of Friesland spent 80,000 euros on a singing road: a road with stripes in the border so that you hear the Frisian anthem as you drive over it.

It was removed a few days later after noise complaints from the people in the neighborhood.
