I' ve been here for two months and I already heard at least five times that all the soil around Gouda is so consistent it's called "thick water"... the city is basically floating in the middle of the Randstad pond
At first, I just assumed he was joking.

Trust me, he's not joking. A joke normally lasts for a few minutes only, he's been at it for years now. He has come to Europe with a vision: one big suburban area with lots of stacked motorways.

After years of reading, I seriously can't say if he's trolling or he's serious, and I like the mistery about it.

Either way, I sincerely admire him for his constance and for the consistency of his arguments. Never seen a half assed job from him. Also never been rude.

I think it's important, in a discussion, to have a moderate but constant flow of wrong or absurd ideas. Starting from Subi's deranged visions a lot of interesting explanations were expressed over the years.
"Obvious things need to be repeated, in order to remain obvious"

And if he's a troll... well, the best troll ever seen in the Internet. The border between insanity and genius is always thin...

NL is ideally suited to suburban development though, it is the only country with essentially limitless landmass

I don't think he's a troll. He's intelligent and knows are thing or two about roads and railroads. It's just that he has a very bad taste in society, in where he believes in concrete and futuristic progress without room for nature and beauty.

By the way, do you think he can hear us?

Could have been self-parody. :-)

Or self-trolling

Btw, it's late night here, we are justified for this incontrollable flow of inane chatter. What's your reason?

I can chatter inanely on demand, at any time of day.

And also, my sinuses are killing me.
