something that really bothers me about the biohacking community is the cavalier attitude to which people seem to treat the idea of an "upgrade". We still have a limited understanding of phantom limb pain, but that doesn't stop these white-dreadlocs types from wishing they could just swap out limbs and accessories like clothing, nerve damage be damned. So while the lack of research and general dumb shit going on in the ep is stomach-turning, it's been selected for from the top down. I love the idea of biohacking and self autonomy, but this shit is just too fucking dumb to countenance, even for the sympathetic.
Jackal Flapnasty hits the nail on the head - the established tech in this sphere is for people with disabilities. Oscar Pistorius' blade legs were better suited for competitive running than my 'stock' ones, and that's pretty cool to me in a way a magnet implant just isn't.
