Grow-a-NanoRaptor

Now here is an example of the fusion between the made and the born, most kids would crave for. Much better than the robotic dino toy. Designed by evolution!

Hopefully this genetic surprise doesn't grow genetically wild and eats its owner. Luckily it is just an imaginative product – so far.

Koert, zal Jesse een leuk idee vinden ... maar ja helaas, haha... zul je hem toch even moeten uitleggen dat het helemaal een onzin verhaal!

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.
