    Pleasantly surprised to find this as I was out exploring old stomping grounds today.

    That’s harsh.

    Why? It's a huge decision to make, and isn't the whole point of the thread emphasising the need to ensure that the people doing the dying actually do really want that?

    I don't think parents should be able to ask for euthanasia on behalf of a child. How could a child have enough life experience? Or reasoning ability? I would set the minimum age of consent for euthanasia very high - I'd take the Confucian standard of 30 being when one reaches adulthood as the absolute minimum, but I'm not sure that would be old enough.

    In this morning's Dominion Post. I find the attitude problematic, but he does make a good point about the lack of privacy online.

    Welcome to the Panopticon.

    In Auckland for a couple of days, then down to Wellington as home base while we settle in, but going where the work is… Arrived AKL this morning, it’s beautiful here.

    Oh, and 1 last shot from HKIA, our conveyance homeward.

    Hebe, quality’s fine, love the surfboards and that ocean.

    Nora, cool lanterns. Seems I’ll miss them by only a couple of days this year, though the festival proper is not till March 5. Leave Hong Kong tomorrow…

    Great sunsets indeed. A little more ominous-looking at Hong Kong Disneyland yesterday afternoon.
