Hey there soldier, not so fast. You're a big boy/girl now and you've made it to Tinder, congratulations on that. But there are a few things imperative to making it in the tinder scene here. First things first, if you're under 6ft. your chances are fucked. A successful Tinder profile requires your height to be neatly displayed at the top of your description. Especially in the Netherlands, they're the tallest kids on the global block and fight pretty hard to keep them monster viking genes.

Coming soon to a tree near you, TreeWiFi. Yes that's right, a WiFi router lodged into a bird house that hangs from a tree. And yes, it's free! Founded by the bright spark Joris Lam, this initiative just took away first place and a €1000 prize at Awesome Amsterdam (a foundation to make the city more awesome). Not only do these birdhouses lay down strong WiFi beams fit to turn your regular router green with envy; but also test the air quality of the area and offer this information online as a comparative tool to incentivise air cleanliness between Tree WiFi locations.
