In Holland, even the boondoggles are adorable!
News out of Holland that a pedestrian bridge costing 150,000 euros has only been used 5 times in two years.
By red squirrels.
On reflection, I'm not even sure this is a boondoggle. Lets say 3 squirrels a year use the bridge and it lasts for 30 years with no maintenance.
That's 90 fuzzy lives saved for a lousy 150,000 Euros, or a smidge over 1,500 euros per squirrel.
So tell me again what the problem is.
Rock on Low Countries. Rock on.
