wow!

hab jetzt leider grad nicht die zeit, die story nachzurecherchieren. v.a. würd ich mir auch gern die dänische gesetzeslage ansehen, die solche enormen, schnellen fortschritte ermöglicht! mag das wer übernehmen? sind im besten fall nur einige minuten arbeit.

spannende artikel posten, oder gar, selber recherchieren und schreiben.
