Once upon a time there was a fairly large man who liked to hang out next to bridges, cut people's hands off and throw them in the river. This went on for quite a while, but then this other guy came along and cut off the first guy's hand, and then he threw that guy's hand in the river as well! So this river just had way too many hands floating around in it. And that's all you need to know about Antwerp. Super crazy place. Really big on the chopping-off-hands thing. They also have a lot of diamonds, but I'm not sure what they do with them at this point.
Because no one has any hands left.
