Aftermarket Body Parts

by on May 19, 2011

If your hand was busted to the point of uselessness, would you prefer to have this?:

The issue that’s arisen is one that’s happened twice thus far in Austria, where two guys have elected to have a hand amputated and replaced with a bionic version that lets them do things like pinch and grasp and tie their shoelaces. One guy’s had it done, another’s in the process.

So, if you could have a body part cut off and replaced by a bionic version that works better, which one would you… oh, come on, not that.  You guys are sick.  Besides, I don’t think hydraulic technology is quite at that level yet.
