Hi I'm Stew. I like Graff, Street Art, Music, Toronto, Metal Gear Solid, ArmA / DayZ, Community, Ravens, Cats, Weed, Veganism, shit like that. Expect lots of shit like that. Also sometimes my original music. Also the occasional insane rant and boring details about my life no one cares to hear.

My gods. These are amazing. For those who have lost limbs or been born without, these are an AMAZING advancement. 

… I do however have a qualm with their website saying “towards an end to disability”, because - while these are amazing, they don’t address disabilities other than loss of limb or use of limb. Even something like EDS wouldn’t really benefit from this… To say nothing of something like my narcolepsy. 

What strixus said.

Other than that, I am a happy thing, right here and now.
