I always wondered how these things worked on Facebook. You know the ones where some kid at deaths door is on the photo with the request for likes. Now we know.
Don't think those likes are  unimportant... remember, every single one of them is working for the good of someone.... somewhere.

When I read stuff like this I always Google it. Turns out they mixed up two facts. While the Grand Station has a whopping 120 mrem it's The US Capitol Building in Washington DC that would fail the nuclear power plant test.

While this is very cool from a science perspective I can't help but think about the hundreds of ants killed for each "artwork".

their is estamated 321,035,624,829,901,000 ants in the world. their are 7,227,014,817 ( subject to change every minute ) people in the world. killing a small fraction of the ants isn't wrong, besides it's for science, and i bet you kill ants in your house.

A multilingual technology consultant, born in The Netherlands, worked in London and now living in Japan.
I keep procastinating what to write here so I thought I would write a few points on things I care about bullet points
  • technology, all of it, if it eats electricity chances are I like to play with it
  • Apple, the technology company, I also like IBM, SGI and some others but Apple is my main intrest
  • the 3 main abrahamic religions, judaism, christianity and islam. I think as they currently stand they are a dirty stain on humanity and if we are to progress upwards in our evolution as a species it needs to radically change or simply be removed
  • The Netherlands, United Kingdom and Japan, the countries I have called my home
  • humanism, you know, be good to your fellow human beings, for no other reason than it being the right thing to do, no gods with rewards or punishment required
  • fairness to all, we are all human beings and deserve to be treated humane, regardless of gender, race, age, appearance. As such I rejoice in victories of the suppressed, be it  females, Gay, Bi, Lesbian, Transgender or people of the various races
Just a little history on myself. I was born in Utrecht, Holland way back in 1971, attended a school for the print industry where I encountered the first Macintoshes back in 1985, that pretty much changed my life as I was convinced at that point that computers were the way forward. Seeing that teachers did not agree I left school. Then while working for Apple Benelux I was told I was fired due to them outsourcing my job to the UK who then hired me back at almost 3 times my salary as they could not find qualified Dutch speakers on their little island, thats how I ended up in London where I worked first for Apple and then as IT Manager for several global design firms, ending in one of my best jobs ever with MR Systems, not because they paid well but because they really cared for their clients and are basically a bunch of swell guys, sadly it was not too last. My wife wanted to move back to Japan as she thought it would be a better place for the kids, now living here I have to agree.

Might elaborate on some points later, im not a big writer ;)
Bragging rights

If you have ever been to an IKEA you know what to expect, it's exactly the same as any other IKEA anywhere in the world. If you have never been to an IKEA. Its a large and spacious store with cheap wooden furniture. The restaurant stocks decent and relatively cheap food and staff is friendly and fast. Only negative point, for me as a foreigner, is the lack of Swedish food in the food store. Many items you find in the Swedish, UK and Dutch stores are missing.

My wife was booked in for a caesarian, just before we were scheduled to go into the operating theatre they had an emergency caesarian to do so told us to wait. 4 hours later I decided to venture outside only to find a shocked nurse exclaiming "oh you are still here?". Surgeon was brought back in, caesarian performed and we thought our misery had ended only to find out he had made a mistake in the stitching resulting in them having to cut my wife open again to redo it a week later. I'm not even talking about the mixed up paperwork with another patient on our visits.

Large park spread over 2 levels separated by large trees and connected with 3 stairs and one path for wheelchair or pram access. The top level has a big field where you will often find families having a picnic surrounded by a soft jogging track. There is also a brand new set of workout equipment, a large baseball and football field, a community centre, a tennis club, archery club and 2 clean public toilets. The lower level has a stream running through it with 4 water features, the stream is often filled with small children playing in it. At the back of the park is a large Japanese temple.
