Characterization of discs
There are still counter-examples with the formulation "open set homeomorphic to the disc". For example, start with the unit disc and remove a segment between a point in the boundary and a point inside. You can then remove a small disc centered at the interior endpoint, and so on. In these examples, the boundary contains the unit circle so the property holds as stated. You need to assume that there are no other points on $L\cap\partial D$. |

A Converse to the Gauss Bonnet Theorem
For example, contract a hemisphere to a segment by contracting each radial circle to a point. The resulting space is a bouquet of a sphere and a circle. Place the segment to the sphere by an injective map. This can be made smooth. |

A Converse to the Gauss Bonnet Theorem
Take a point with the highest $z$-coordinate. If it is on the boundary, take one with the lowest $z$-coordinate. Since the entire boundary is on the same level, either a highest or lowest point is in the interior. |

Example of non-closed convex hull in a CAT(0) space
Thanks, now I understand. Indeed the Euclidean intuition fails. |

Example of non-closed convex hull in a CAT(0) space
@Anton, I don't get it. In any manifold, take a point $p$ and a nearby small ball $B$, and connect $p$ to all points of $B$ by geodesic segments. I believe the resulting set is convex if everything is small enough, yet the conical part of the boundary is filled by geodesics. |

Tverberg's theorem in CAT(0) spaces
Answering my previous comment: see Theorem 1.1 in arXiv:1011.1802 for $r=2$. (Thanks to Roman Karasev who informed me about this reference.) |

Definition of self-dual polytope
Judging by Google search results, self-dual cones were studied quite a bit. Since self-dual bodies in $R^d$ are precisely compact hyperplane sections of self-dual cones in $R^{d+1}$, it should be possible to translate many results from one context to the other. |
