    WTF. That's just . . . awesome. While it's kinda creepy to wear a dead mans arms, it beats not having arms at all.

    Now i wonder if the "he's excited for the future" means he's really looking forward to his first wank after loosing his arms

    That is ... impressive. For some reason I get visions of Battle Angel where you have people using bionic replacements and you have the upper class using more expensive organic replacements since it would appear that we might have both in the future.

    Time for bear arms! RAWR!
    'Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead
    Or a yawing hole in a battered head
    And the scuppers clogged with rotting red
    And there they lay I damn me eyes
    All lookouts clapped on Paradise
    All souls bound just contrarywise, yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

    If he works one arm with the other. Technically I'd be Dutch rudder.
    Vote with your wallet if you don't like something. Otherwise just keep your mouth shut.

    It's still very impressive, it's one of the only double arm transplants iirc (There's been around 10 worldwide right?)...

    But dayum, he must be extremely happy.

    Im not sure. I believe i read about the first one in Science Illustrated. I believe he was a trucker or something who had lost both arms when a container had fallen down or something.

    Robot hands aren't too bad either. At least there won't be rejection problems with tissues.

    God this comment reminding me of the scene from "Dylan Dog: Dead of Night" where his friend becomes a zombie with a missing arm only to wake up with a black mans arm later they gave him. Reminded me of the scene at the end were he said he wanted to keep the arm now and how it kinda smelled like Old Spice.

    On topic, great to here this. Wish the man luck and as full of a recovery as he can possibly get.

    Wow, this is amazing, one day we will be able to replace the limbs of even people who are born without any. I'm happy for him.
