Doctor Invents Machine That Helps People Die Painlessly and Peacefully in 5 Minutes

Dr Philip Nitschke believes euthanasia should be available for everyone who wants it.

With a nickname like ‘Dr Death’, you can bet Philip Nitschke isn’t your typical doctor. In fact, he is the founder of Exit International, a non-profit organization that advocates euthanasia legalization, and has written The Peaceful Pill, a suicide handbook.

As if that was not enough, he has also invented the Sarco, a machine that allows people to die peacefully – without any pain – in just five minutes. The said creations can be printed using a 3D-printer and uses liquid nitrogen to kill the person using it.

Sarco, the death machine.

The capsule, according to Unilad, administers the gas, “killing the person over a period of five minutes” which makes death a peaceful and painless process.

Furthermore, we learn that Sarco has “safety mechanisms” in place to ensure that it wouldn’t be used to kill people and that the user “can stop at any point up until the point they lose consciousness”.

In an Exit International post, Dr Philip Nitchske described the Sarco as sleek and “luxurious”.

The site further tells us:

“Its base contains canisters of liquid nitrogen and a removable capsule compartment that can be repurposed as a casket. The whole operation will be open-source and could theoretically be 3-D-printed anywhere in the world. It is, in short, the Model S of death machines.”

Potential users are required to fill out an online mental fitness test and will be given an access code that will work for 24 hours if they pass.

Then this is the part when death happens.

“After the code is entered and an additional confirmation is given, the Sarco capsule will fill up with liquid nitrogen to bring the oxygen level down to about 5 percent. Within one minute the user passes out, and a few minutes later, death comes.”

The 70-year-old doctor from Victoria, Australia has since sparked controversy after introducing his creation.

Nitschke, who is a believer that euthanasia should be available for people who want it, explained why he holds the view in the first place.

He shared:

“When I was working to legalize euthanasia in Australia, I met more and more people who wanted to die but didn’t have a medical reason.

“One of them was a French woman, a scholar, who had planned to die at age 80. Not because she was sick, but simply because she thought that was a beautiful age to pass away.

“When I responded with initial skepticism, she answered—and she was right—that it wasn’t my place to judge her. She said it was her decision, one that isn’t bound by the rules I follow as a doctor.

“Partially due to her, I changed my mind. I became convinced that death should be a right for any sane human.”

There is no announced release date for the Sarco yet but Nitschke hopes to make the machine available soon.

Japanese Hotel Uses “Self Parking” Slippers Created By Nissan

No more losing slippers in this joint.

Slippers that "park" themselves at the hotel entrance for guests to use? If it's in technology-crazy Japan, it's totally possible. In a collaboration with Nissan, a company that goes beyond manufacturing cars, ProPilot Park Ryokan inn will be featuring self-driving slippers that operate at the push of a button.

The slippers use Nissan's ProPilot Park technology and are each equipped with two tiny wheels, a motor, and a sensor. The technology used for the slippers is the same as the one in Nissan's latest version of its all-battery electric Leaf vehicle, which come with high-tech sensors and cameras that allow the automobile to locate and park driver-less.

Guests will be greeted by these slippers at the entrance.

So how does the ProPilot techology work? According to Daily Mail: ...

10 Proofs That Convinced People The Moon Landings Were A Hoax

Gathered by the theorists, examine the evidence and see if NASA really staged the moon landings.

Apparently, not everyone in this world believes that the moon landings are true. The theory suggests that the US government staged everything in order to win the space race against Russia. And over time, this “conspiracy theory” has grown in popularity. In fact, 20 percent of the Americans, according to a recent survey, believe that NASA never landed on the moon.

While this continues to be debated up to this day, it cannot be denied that evidence gathered by conspiracy theorists are quite interesting. In this list, we present to you said evidence suggesting that the moon landings were merely faked.

#10. The Waving Flag

Moon landing deniers pointed out that when the landing took place – which was televised, by the way – the American flag can be seen waving. This happened right after Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong planted it. There were also photos showing a ripple in a breeze, thus somehow showing a fold in the flag. NASA has since denied the allegation, saying that the flag was kept in a thin tube. This reportedly led to the ripple effect seen by the audience....
