You're joking right?

Brussels, capital of Europe, you know, is a densily build area, everything
is asphaltized ... Underground rivers, were something unknown by previous
generations of stupid contractors in this marshy area, and underground
rivers-to you may call the vision of clean water running in caves- but their
sisters in this family are: slow moving mudd streams some f.e. 3-5 meter
below the ground, you don't SEE them.  Why they run just there and not 5
meters more to the left ? Serious geology and hydrologist need to come at
rescue to explain this.

Respectfully Yours,
