Fear of $topic_du_jour

Ignore this post if you do not speak Dutch.

For some reason, the Dutch government has decided that it should outperform Fox News in creating a sense of fear in its citizens. For this reason, they created the site Nederland tegen terrorisme. On that site, the governments warns about all the bad things that could happen, and the things that you should do when you are a victim or a witness. While this is a commendable initiative, most of the information offered on the site does not surpass that of elementary school.

David Rietveld created another site which targets a much more important question: What to do against bad weather?. The site is extremely well-made and excellently mocks the terrorism site of the Dutch government.
