We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better...stronger...faster.

Man Ted I used to love that show. I youtubed the episode where he fought Bigfoot. Remember that one? And I had the action figure with the lens on the back of his head that was a tiny binocular.

So a person loses one hand, gets a prosthetic hand that can be controlled with a phone that is held in their good hand...

Isn't that counter intuitive?
