Today, on the way home from work, we (Andreas, Oliver and I) were listening to the radio. The talk show host was interviewing an alumni from McGill (not even in biochemistry but political science, in case you wanted to know) that was now a co-founder of a company that makes diamonds from dead people's ashes (seriously... here is the link... and I must emphasize that this is NOT a paid advert 😉). Oliver got very quiet and then asked about HOW they make the ashes into diamonds. I started to explain that we are made of carbon... and so are diamonds... and.... and.... Anyway, he then interrupted me and asked- of course, when I am dead- if he could make a diamond out of me (WAY too much Minecraft, if you want my opinion)... and only in a long time from now because I am not that old (gee, thanks!).
Our conversation just added a whole new meaning to "Shine bright like a diamond" 😉
Happy Thursday evening!
