Have you ever wondered how long your Monday is and how your weekends fly by so fast? The Dutch have brought a whole new meaning to the fast weekends by getting a complete tunnel built under a highway in one weekend.

In our neighboring state to the south, affectionately know as Taxachusetts, they could have it done in a decade with a cost overrun of only 300 percent or so.

They have been building highway 360 here between Dallas and Fort Worth since the 70's.

In 2001 about 25% of workers belonged to labor unions in that country. In 2014 it had dropped to 18%.
