Dutch railway station installs ‘transfer accelerator’ for busy passengers

“Transfer accelerator” at the Overvecht Station in Utrecht.

Commuting is typically a bit of a grind even on the nicest, newest subway or bus system. A metro station in the Netherlands, though, has sought to liven up the experience — by installing a slide that riders can zip down instead of taking the stairs. It may sound a little silly but itdoes look like fun.

At Home Noodle Shop

Fun with food!
Somen is a refreshing Japanese wheat noodle, traditionally eaten in the summer to cool off from the Japan’s humid summers. They’re most famous for being eaten as “nagashimen,” noodles flying down a bamboo pipe as would-be eaters try to catch them with their chopsticks. It’s a ton of fun, but feeling sorry for those who don’t happen to live in rural Japan, Bandai has brought the fun of nagashimen to the home, with the Home Somen Shop.
