Brake-testing the SuperBus in the snow

Superbus Gullwing doors

We all know metro buses to be fairly dull and boring, but a group of student engineers from Holland figured that this isn't how buses have to be. From there, the SuperBus concept was born. Although the SuperBus does not follow a set route, you can send it a text message with your location, and it’ll come pick you up. The bus runs on electricity, features 16 gullwing doors, and is set to run about 155 miles before charging is needed.

So what do you do when it snows in the Netherlands? Whip the SuperBus out and conduct more testing! Check the video out after the jump.

On this week’s episode of , the four remaining ladies - Analeigh, McKey, Marjorie and Samantha - got to to take things to a whole new physical level. When they weren’t learning to sell products with gestures and facial expressions, they were busy planting their lips on a hunky male model. One girl even spent some of her free time kissing someone who wasn’t in the industry. But we’ll get to that drunken story a little later…

For this week’s lesson, the women got a little more one-on-one time with . It was the former supermodel’s job to show the ladies how to sell products without using their voices. How does a spokesmodel sell fish when no one can smell it? How can they make toilet paper look soft when consumers can’t touch it? How can they make phone conversations seem exciting when the reader can’t hear them?

After weeks of lessons, runway shows and photo shoots, we finally got to “see” what the ladies of were made of tonight. Followers of the show know what that means: it was time for the Final 5 to go on their go-sees.

Before heading out on their journeys, the models met with Frederick Koster, the managing director of Touché Models. After explaining the evaluation process - the girls would be judged on their portfolios, their walks, their appearance and their personalities - Koster gave the women maps and directions. The goal was to meet as many designers in the allotted 4 hours as possible. If they did not make it back to the agency on time, they would automatically be disqualified.

CoffeeCompany Curbs WiFi Freeloaders

CoffeeCompany Screen

We suspect there are a lot of people who hit up their local Starbucks to take advantage of the free WiFi and sip the same cup for hours. The Holland based CoffeeCompany has come up with an idea to curb the practice. They change the name of their network with such passwords as “HaveYouTriedCoffeeCake?,” “BuyAnotherCupYouCheapskate” and “BuyaLargeLatteGetBrownieForFree.” While the message is comical and subliminal, the guilt factor must be worth the effort.

I was starting to feel like this day would never come. The day when only six remained on America’s Next Top Model 11.

Just as a reminder, the girls chosen to represent America in Amsterdam were Analeigh, Elina, Marjorie, McKey, Samantha and Sheena. Did anyone manage to embarrass us on their first day there?
