TFF16 : I'm from the Netherlands and I didn't even know this...

hornylink : "we're humans, we'll stop the wind." that's great and all, but can you make people behave reasonably on the internet. and will it blend?

canukforce : The Dutch built a wall and made the wind pay for it.

Shzh : More about the Netherlands. We like people talking about us

Thomas Lynn : The walls to my house stop 100% of wind. Beat that, wind walls.

KasabianFan44 : Finally a British person who doesn't call the Netherlands "Holland"...

Huntracony : "God created the earth, but the Dutch created the Netherlands."

Sander Geraedts : Our country is the goddamn Avatar.. Raising land from the sea (Flevoland), building walls to protect us from the sea, pushing the sea so far back that 50% of the country is below sea level and even calming the wind. If the Vaalserberg was an active vulcano, I'm sure we'd made sure it would only erupt on Germany.

Theo Jessop : Don't underestimate the Netherlands. As a great man once said: 'God made the world, but the Dutch made the Netherlands'.

Joppe Kroeze : Somehow i feel like if the netherlands was on a fault line the dutch would just fix it as well

mark. keilys. : that sun peeking in over your shoulder made what you were saying just so much more impactful.

RancidMarshmallow : pretty sure tom gets off to mankind's achievements.

ashley : the netherlands masters of the water stoppers of wind

12Me21 : Trump would be proud

Sky Lord Panglot : The key is "What humans can do when they want to." But most of the time humans dont want to. Unimaginable amounts of resources are thrown for wars, control, greed, manipulation... if we had these things invested in our future we probably would've colonized Mars up to now and maybe got out of our solar system. But why not, lets start another war. Its near. The children that rule us stomp their feet and say "Thats mine!" and the other one stomps even hard and answers "No! Mine!" and we kill each other like mindless idiots for no reason...

Thomas Joosten : The Netherlands VS Nature The Netherlands wins

phillip stafford-dafoe : this is Donald Trump's dream but the Netherlands use it for good

ViolettaSachra : I should read more carefully. Because I was really amazed that the Neanderthals were somehow able to stop wind.... :'D

Harry : He gets around a lot.

Speckledpears : Awesome! I live in the Netherlands and never knew we had such a thing. Also its pretty ironicall that there is a windmill in the background.

manzilla48 : Central and Northern Europe is such and advanced place

Fenno : That's really neat! I live in the Netherlands and I had no idea this was a thing, I'll have to visit sometime for sure.

Ali Jardz : "We're humans. We will stop the wind!"  Kinda want that on a T-Shirt :P

Collin M : That wall's not going to stop the wind. The wind will just use a ladder or dig under it.

Das Neko : ... You could just make a better bridge.

Entropy Zero : "We are humans. We'll stop the wind."

Masre Super : All Dutch people say hi Hi

ticklestick : im from the netherlands and i've been here once, i thought it was some kind of abstract piece of art or something!

cubedude76 : Yasuo has nothing on this wall!

Kishore Shenoy : I am blown away by this video, or rather not blown away thanks to the structures

Ovenman940 : Even that basic graffiti looks better than the grey concrete. They should decriminalise it in that area, they're basically giant canvasses that could attract some skilful artists.

Spunktastic JismMonkey : My family would have loved to have had one of these walls around me growing up, especially after eating a plate of baked beans on toast with cheese. :o)

frollard : I wonder how much of it is archimedes valve action and how much is just 'hemicylinders are stronger and cheaper than flat walls'  Very cool.

rohan1970b : You should come to the plains of the US. It was done 80-90 years ago. They just used wood (aka trees) instead of concrete and planted them by the dozen or hundreds of miles and around most buildings... They're called shelterbelts

Fotografieren mit : This thing is wonderfull and ugly at the same time!

sion8 : So, is that a way to stop the Air Nomads from escaping?

RKH1502 : Soooo... linguistics videos soon? :p

Hardcore Bob : Tom it's crazy that an Englishman teaches me the most about my country.

aKillerSandwich : this makes me want to be a structural engineer

Lukaaz : I literally drove by there every week for the past 15 years, and I only just learned what they actually are xD

Vin Sad : I prefer Yasuo's wind wall

Drakinite : That's amazing, oh my god.

Bacon Wizard : *a flood happens “Don’t worry we’ll just block the ocean” *wind appears “Don’t worry we’ll just block the wind” In the Netherlands nature doesn’t stop you, you stop nature.

Ganja H.E.R.B Dinosaurus : Netherlands be prepairef for a airbender attack

jaziel tan : They need to get some artist and do something to it. It'd make something so amazing even more marvaleous.

woutertje62 : cool to see A video of something I see every day. it is called Rozenburg though

TheFrosty : I wish you would bring back your old outro when you used to say "and that, is something you might not have known" :'c

RoomWithAMoose : see socialism is soooooo bad..............

daemonCaptrix : Most of these comments written in Dutch read remarkably like awkwardly-worded English. I didn't know the languages were that similar. Must be the Germanic roots?

suncu91 : im going to the rotterdam tomorrow for the first time. im going to convince my girlfriend to take me there
