  • Singapore’s prison system

    A documentary by CNA from last year. Looks like I never posted this on my blog. 4 parts.

  • Cryogenics


    Eventually, the mortician was not pleased with the other bodies sitting around on beds of ice, so a LN Dewar capsule was secured for the remaining three. Another man was already frozen and sealed inside the capsule, so it was opened, and he was removed. Nelson and the mortician then spent the entire night figuring…
