Eating human flesh? You can’t do that on television! Unless it’s Dutch TV and you and your co-host just go for it. Sorry, Fear Factor, but with these two around you’re going to have to kick the gross factor up a notch.
On their Dutch television show Proefkonijnen, which translates as Test Rabbits, hosts Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno try to answer life’s tougher questions, such as, can you shave with ketchup? One universal, nagging question they wanted to answer? What does human flesh taste like? As two consenting adults eager to whip up some ratings, they hired a surgeon to shave off a slice of buttocks (Storm) and stomach (Zeno) and had a chef fry them up. “The chef cooked it in a frying pan with sunflower oil,” Storm told ABC News. “We didn’t add any salt or pepper because we wanted to know what it tasted like.” No word on whether they were served with fava beans and a nice chianti, though. The duo then looked into each others’ eyes and ate each others’ flesh on television.
The story has garnered a lot of international attention for a previously unheard of Dutch show. For Storm, that makes it all worth it. “It was just a few centimeters of meat,” he said. “And now I have a good story about that scar.” And we have a good story about the decline of western civilization.

“If you do not specify and confront real issues, what you say will surely obscure them. If you do not alarm anyone morally, you yourself remain morally asleep. If you do not embody controversy, what you say will be an acceptance of the drift of the coming hell.” C Wright Mills.

Google’s New Computer With Human-Like Learning Abilities Will Program Itself 2014 10 30
In college, it wasn’t rare to hear a verbal battle regarding artificial intelligence erupt between my friends studying neuroscience and my friends studying computer science.
One rather outrageous fellow would mention the possibility of a computer takeover, and off they went. The neuroscience-savvy would awe at the potential of such hybrid technology as the CS majors argued we have nothing to ...
