No man should know the exact date of his death. But when you have access to an electric network 300 years in the future, a network which contains extensive articles on your life and death, it's hard not to peek. In nine days, I will feel a pain in my left leg, a leg which will...

I created a Youtube channel with "educational videos for aliens" where I pretend to be an extraterrestrial explaining humans, earth and the human condition to aliens. The first video came out sunday. Check it out:



It may not be a very "royal" hobby and it's also somewhat anachronistic - but it's certainly fun. Besides, it allows me to take an "outsider" pespective on humanity...
