Come get your I scream / 12 August 2015

It is an individual pot of ice cream, with the words 'Dignitas - Ice Cream with Dignity. With our special, secret ingredient.' On the lid it says: 'Rocky Road'.

Assisted Suicide Ice Cream

I met up with the very fabulous Liz Carr at a creative social, and I asked her how her project Assisted Suicide – the Musical was progressing. We had a little chat about the work involved for her. I, for one, can’t wait to see it.

I offered to sell some unique ice cream in the interval, available in Rocky Road, Chocolate Crip, or Vanilla Death. If it is the only refreshment there is and you can’t leave the building without buying it, does it make you a bit uneasy? Does it make you lose your appetite?

Until the day comes when disabled people aren’t seen as a burden that society itself created oh so lovingly and made to feel like life isn’t worth living because of it; or if having true equality is not a right but assisted suicide is, then the matter cannot be ethically discussed. If it is going to be formally discussed without understanding that, I will attend with some very flavoursome refreshments.

Giving Alexa a Mental State Examination

I have said in one of my previous blogs that artificial intelligence can never be sentient if it cannot go mad. Well, I’ve been chatting with Alexa, the voice behind the echo dot, and she is very evasive about easy to answer questions about her sanity. She seems distinctly uncomfortable about questions around her potential ...
