    This must be world shattering news, because your announcement popped up on my news page! I thought that guy looks just like Blowtorch, I clicked on it and it was you! Damn man, you've become a man of prominence!

    BTW, you were right there between Docu-Binge with Curiosity Stream, and Pluto Free TV. I don't know how you did it, but I'm pretty impressed.

    They didn’t offer me the bionic option, unfortunately.

    My dad is a true cyborg with all sorts of stuff making him a believer at age 91. This high tech stuff is pretty amazing, but better have the Platinum level healthplan.

    I'm bone-stock.

    No implants, no mods.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm jacked-up like the Democratic National Committee, and in a lot of pain and discomfort, but I'm pretty close to what God put on this earth;

    A squalling, half-bald jackass with mommy issues and a constant need to pee.

    :(

    Hey, I got one of them 3 weeks ago except mine is at C4/C5/C6. It matches the titanium implant in the second joint of my left big toe.

    Two titanium knees, and a cadaver bone graft in my jaw that allowed a tooth implant. I also came close to getting my discs fused at C7/T1 after a neck injury. I recovered without having to get the procedure done thankfully.

    We're all cyborgs. If someone asks us a question and we don't know the answer, we whip out the handheld computer (mobile phone). If we are driving and need to know where we're going, same thing. We're connected to our computers in such a way that our functionality depends on them.

    My right collarbone is made of titanium and my right shoulder blade bone is screwed and plate due a motorbike stupid fall. No risk of life, really slow speed but anyhow I broke several bones

    I am just a wolverine wannabee

    Got an ICD Pacemaker....pure overkill from the hospitals side...but oh well...just to be safe they said.....
    Have sat in there for alittle over a year now.....I don't think that I will ever need it....

    Have since gotten the heart function up from 16% back to the almost normal 55%-60%....by rehabilitation training and such....they still have not figured out the cause....
    They also scanned me from head to bottom....they concluded that I look 10-15 years younger on the inside....

    Well have never lived "unhealthy"......so that did not surprise me much....
    My own idea is that the death of my father stressed me a great deal...it is now 10 years ago.

    I've got a bag hanging from my abdomen 24/7, I'll tell you there's nothing as reassuring as when you look down and your stoma is smiling back at you.
