Homo Sapiens 14 May

Did you know that Google Translate will translate Latin into English?  Not needed very often, but sometimes in Amsterdam.

Did you also know that Nederland is one of the windiest countries. They even have a verb for blow over (omwaaien), as in de truck omwaaien.  They sometimes close roads, reduce train service, and issue warnings when there are high winds. Speaking of trains, last year the Dutch train company announced that they generated enough electricity by wind to power 100% of their trains, which I think are all electric. The people here have no trouble understanding the relationship between wind, fossil fuels, and sea level rise, a matter of great interest. No time for nonsense about sea levels.
