This looks amazing! A demonstration of the kind of life-like graphics we'll be seeing in games in the near future...

Italian surgeon plans to attempt world's first human head transplant

I find this quite interesting and am fascinated by the possible advances in medicine. The procedure is most likely going to fail with the body rejecting the new head. But the Russian volunteer suffers from a rare genetic defect which will make him die anyway. Even if he won't survive the procedure he'll give his life for more medical knowledge. 

The planned transplant is scheduled for some time in 2016...
Earlier this year, an Italian surgeon announced that he’ll be attempting the world’s first human head transplant, that despite the hurdles, a human head may actually be attached onto another person’s body in two years. This week, a donor was introduced, but according to at least one expert, this man might be facing something that’s “worse than death.”

Human head transplant? Crazy. If it were me, I don't want anyone else's body. I'd rather die.

Sounds like a movie I really need to see!
Suspenseful, stylish, and refreshingly smart, Alex Garland's Ex Machina is the sci-fi film we've been waiting for. Garland made a name for himself writing movies like 28 Days Later, Sunshine, and Dredd, but this is his directorial debut — a chance for him to execute his own vision on screen — and he ably takes on the challenge, forging an impressive first feature that tackles the idea of artificial intelligence with some actual intell...

Wow! What a ride this song is! From the Big Bang and creation of our Solar System to life developing on Earth, evolving into Dinosaurs and their subsequent extinction, followed by the rise of Humanity and eventual fall again. 

I had goosebumps multiple times along the way! Great visualisation of this beautiful Nightwish song!
 
A very beautifully composed video to go along an epic story told by the song The Greatest Show On Earth by Nightwish

Nice math question that needs logic thinking to solve!
SINGAPORE - A Primary school mathematics question has been making the rounds on Facebook and stirring up debate.

It occurs to me that they know the other doesn't know because they know Cheryl would not have told them enough information for either of them to know. They know it's a puzzle to solve, so if either of them individually had enough information to know the answer right off the bat, it wouldn't be a puzzle.

So the only thing you actually need to know is that the other person doesn't know; which you can assume from the fact that you're in this position in the first place.

Provided that is a valid assumption then Cheryl has set up the puzzle so neither of them actually needs to talk to the other at all. They only need to realise this epistemological solution to the problem to solve it.

Just watched this gripping heartfelt movie. It comes highly recommended, but do bring tissues when watching together with an emotional woman...

+Margaret Donald​ I could blink them away. They weren't so profusely I needed tissues.

A movie that did make me cry is a Dutch movie (based on a Dutch bestseller book, about a woman who gets breast cancer and her husband who can't handle it) is called Stricken in the international release:

+patrick kanne​ right. If "he" is a good being, why "create" such selfish creatures? On a serious note, it all comes down to how we were raised as children and the environment we grew up in. Greedy parents are more likely to raise greedy children. A greedy environment produces more greedy people. It never ends.

Strong warning to all young & (yet) childless parents, how your life together as a couple will change dramatically after children arrive, and how this is a severe threat to your marriage or partnership.

Babies and young children, especially the ones who are less than 'perfect' (cry-babies, children with ADHD or Autism, etcetera), put a significant strain on the relationship of the parents and many couples ultimately find it too hard to handle. If couples get a divorce or break up, it is often because of this strain that babies and young children pose on the parents. 

For parents with young children this article probably sounds quite familiar!
We used to be one of those couples, annoying in our insularity. Then I fell into motherhood as if into a well

Story
Tagline
"Live and let live!"
Introduction
Short Intro
Mostly your very average guy with a wife, a son and a daughter. Working full time to provide a decent living and enjoy a good life in my spare time.

A little bit of a geek, a little bit of a nerd, a little bit of a gamer, definitely a movie-lover. But I also love to read good books (sci-fi and fantasy mostly) and take long walks in nature (preferably in the mountains of Austria and Switzerland).

My Google passion
I love to keep updated on new technology and the ongoing developments in social media. I'm a big fan of all things Google: Gmail, Google+, Android, Nexus devicesIngress, and I use all of it on a daily basis. In Ingress I chose the Enlightened faction because it suits my progressive outlook at life and my sense of optimism for the future of Mankind. :-)

Travel
I like to travel to new interesting places to experience different sights, sounds and cultures. But I also love to return to my own cosy comfy home again. Countries I've visited so far are: Belgium, Germany, England, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Jordan, Singapore and The Philippines.

Photography
Late 2011 I bought a mirror-less interchangeable lens camera, the Sony NEX C3, which sports an excellent APS-C sensor. Some nice photos taken with it are shared in this G+ photo album here. Please feel free to visit the album and leave comments on my photos there.

My old hobby: pencil drawing
Some 20 years ago I had a hobby of making pencil drawings of beautiful women. Recently I scanned them and put them in an album. A selection of these drawings are visible publicly here. The full album is not publicly visible because of some nudity. Anyone who likes to view all of the uncensored drawings can just ask me for full access to that album.

Belief, or rather lack thereof
I've been born and raised into a Humanist family. I've attended a Protestant-Christian elementary school, not because of the religion but because their education quality was higher than that of the Catholic and the Public elementary schools situated next to it. 
For the same reason I attended a Catholic secondary school because it was better than the Public secondary school. During my teenager years I got involved with the Pentecostal Church but realised it's not for me. I've also studied about Zen Buddhism which is more a philosophy than a religion. More recently I read an abridged Dutch translation of the Quran to know more about that religion as well. 
But all these ventures into different religions make me realise only more that I am an unbeliever to the core of my being. I can't accept or believe in something that denies or conflicts with scientific findings and generally accepted scientific theories. I also don't entertain superstitions or other irrational fears. I prefer rationality. :-) So if you want to classify me, I'd say I am a Secular Humanist.
For any theist (religious believer) who has questions or doubts, this is a good website to visit and read up about it: God is imaginary.
I'm also not interested in engaging in debates/arguments about religion, for all the possible arguments that theists can come up with have already been countered by far greater minds than me, and in a much better way than I ever could. So, any theist who feels like arguing about his/her faith, please go here instead: So you're a theist who wants to comment on an atheist blog, read this first.

Aardig museum. Aantal mooie stukken in de collectie maar ook heel veel moderne kunst die mij niet aanspreekt. Met museumkaart gratis toegang en dan is het wel aardig om eens bezocht te hebben.

Prettig hotel. Vriendelijk personeel. Nette kamer, hoewel het nog wel iets beter stofgezogen zou kunnen worden. Mooie landelijke omgeving.
