virtual miss germany

Which of these women do you think is more beautiful? At the 2002 Miss Germany pageant, the eight finalists were photographed from the same angle without makeup. The portraits were then mixed into a virtual Miss Germany using computer graphic techniques. The picture at right is of the woman who later won the competition. Decide for yourself which beauty pleases you most. The research was conducted by Dr Martin Gruendl of the University of Regensburg.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
