Observations about the universe, life, Lausanne and me

Step lightly

around me, for I am following a new course here at the EPFL: Impact of environmental pollutants on human physiology by Dr. Caroline Vandevyver, or, as I like to call it: How to poison somebody and make it look like an accident.

When we did the whole introduction/why am I here-spiel I said: "I want to learn how to poison people, just in case."

Dr. Vandevyver's reply? "I can teach you that no problem!"

I love PhD-courses!


  1. Well, you must give a "top ten list" when you have finished the course. Just in case. ;)

  2. Right now methyl isocyanate looks like a good bet. Not so much for the "accidental" part, but definitely for the poisoning!
