Up until the 20th century windmills were mainly used for grinding grain. There may have been other uses, but I don't know what. Today in Holland they're not use as a machine for grinding or pumping, only as an attraction. The last time I was there there are areas where the different types of windmills are only as a tourist attraction. But they never were used for energy. Too out dated now for the modern windmill.
And I not only ask questions I answer people as well, answering the questions will get u more points, so I actually answer a lot more questions than I ask
The windmill was use to drain the land. The Netherlands, a great deal of it, is below sea level. They built dykes and channels to feed the water to sea.
I do think this question and answer site has been cheapened a little by the point for cash program. it is an eperiment in human behavior for sure. :)
LOL, Hey Just asking. I dont even knoe if you can still get money for points. Never mind me, I am grumpy this morning.
Dunno, but I crave knowledge so I ask questions, it is better than assumeing things right
What are you going to do with all of that money from asking all these retarded questions?
Yes u still get paid, and its cool everybody has a bad day once in a while right
geographically neatherlands is a suitable place for wind energy
R thr any other uses? Like yaar said for energy?
Ok thx so much
