Branko’s favourite 24 Oranges’ postings of 2012
Here are some of my favourite stories of the past year.
This is one where we went out and got the news ourselves.
It could have happened anywhere on the globe, but Dutch telly had it on tape. The video link is broken though, here is a new one.
We had a whole raft of postings about the ‘sailor girl’. She lives in New Zealand now. I wonder why…
Although euthanasia is legal, some doctors refuse to perform it. Mobile units run by the Dutch Association for a Voluntary End to Life (NVVE) help the patients of these doctors.
I am not convinced, but it is a plausible explanation. What do you think?
Although professor Post said in February he would have an artificial hamburger ready in October, I haven’t actually heard about him (or his burger) since. Could in-vitro meat turn out to be the flying car of science?
In this home people with dementia live in a fake village in which the staff pretend to be shopkeepers, friends, servants and so on. Really cool, and do check the video if you are not afraid of a bit of German.
Turns out that our micromanaging politicians were too busy ‘solving’ other tiny problems and forgot to forbid voluntary cannibalism between two consenting adults (does licking count?).
Lovely story of a guy who chose his own path.
