It doesn't have much to do with anything, but I found this story fascinating. It is about a 15 year old kid who built a functioning nuclear breeder reactor in his mother's garden shed, harvesting components from clocks and smoke alarms, and sweet talking the Nuclear Regulatory Committee into giving him advice. He did it in part to earn his boy scout merit badge in Atomic Energy. ... Of course this is all a very bad idea, but I'd give him a lot of points for guts and persistence. He might not live very long, but he did pretty much what he set out to do.

Als üreh-40-jäbriger Autofahrer und kaufmännischer Angestellter ohne Bezug zu Rettungs- oder Sanitätswesen sieht die Bilanz etwas unausgewogen aus. Das erste Mal freiwillig bei den Johannitern, nochmal in der Schule, 11. Klasse, dann nochmal bei der Bundeswehr und bei den Führerscheinen (Auto und LKW). Also zwischen 16 und 22 hab’ ich 5 Kurse gemacht, und seitdem keinen mehr. Ich glaube, das sollte ich ändern – und den Organspendeausweis habe ich auch seit Jahren nicht besorgt…
