Default For you Amsterdam lovers

So i've been addicted to this A-Dam webcam for about a year now. Any time i'm feeling PADS (post Amsterdam depression syndrome), I just pop the webcam on and listen to the trams go by. Do you think I love A-Dam?

Thanks for dropping that link Marc. Seems like the town is very busy! Also after about 15 seconds the screen goes green and inverts?

That's strangely addictive.

Marc, I'll meet you at that intersection and we can have the first ever TPunk meetup to be broadcasted live!

Now theres a fucking idea. But the challenge is to actually hit a timeline for an online venture like that while in Amsterdam. I've seen others do it on an Amsterdam board.

Yep, sure is. They keep those out most of the year and in the summer months there are more of them. GREAT to be a man when drinking in Amsterdam. Nothing like taking a wis on a sidewalk and no one cares

It looks like somebody spray painted a little graffiti near the bike rack.

I saw that too. Its new. Wonder how long it will stay there. The way I see the city of Amsterdam clean up, I bet its not there too long.

that's rad man. I have yet to hit up NL but when I do I am going to try to stay long enough to get citizenship. I am full blooded dutch but unfortunately too many generations in the States to claim it that way.....

Dude if you have a chance of getting an EU citizinship in ANY country, I am SUPER jealous. Having Dual citizinship is a dream to me.
