experiment failure


okay so the pirate box experiment gave its best shot but ultimately failed. things were fine from the installation in May 19 but at the end of December i whacked it on the door of a taxi, which hurt a lot but didn't worry me too much. however it got red and irritated looking and ultimately, i called the 111 service (free medical advice line) and they told me to go to hospital. hospital docs were pretty skeeved and clearly thought this was an utterly bizarre thing to have done, and immediately admitted me for removal. they insisted it be removed and at this point a hole had opened up over one corner of the device, through which a lot of nasty goo was issuing, so i went with their opinion and let them take it out.

so i spent New Year's in hospital, and now i have a second badass scar to show off. there's also a bit of nerve damage to my right hand which will hopefully heal up over time (it's pretty damn irritating, i have lost the grip strength in those fingers and it makes it very hard to type right).

so, cautionary tale. don't put enormous devices in your arms, folks.

"gave its best shot but ultimately failed."

That HAS to happen, sometimes, percentage-wise. Not everything is gonna work.


"clearly thought this was an utterly bizarre thing to have done"

Ha! I'd love to have seen the look on their faces. They can't even conceive of individuals trying to augment our biological inheritance.


"nasty goo"

Ok, I think I'll stop reading now.

Maybe not...



"there's also a bit of nerve damage to my right hand"

Ouch. Ok, that's definitely not good news, and there's no way to sugar-coat it.


"don't put enormous devices in your arms, folks."



Roger on that, Lepht.


Ok, I hope it heals up, thanks for the update.


Take care.

Hi!


Long time lurker here. I hope nerve damage heals (I had some minor issues several times, mostly from putting magnets inside my fingers and it healed fine), I hope the scar is truly badass.

Better luck next time!

androgynous meatsack commenting again after a couple turns around our ball of nuclear fire.

Sucks to hear about the failure. I'm at least learning from it though.

As expensive as this might sound, it could be a good idea to impregnate your buddy's proprietary barrier material with atomic silver to act as an antimicrobial in case of damage. Side effects of turning the area slightly blue can't be too bad a trade off... You could make it on the cheap out of old second hand store sterling cutlery with a bit of youtube chemistry lessons.

Other notes: PCB can't be fun...if you ever get that subdermal MCU itch again ribbon cable and in-line parts would probably do you better for durability and flexibility. More soldering and fiddly bits but also probably something that would survive a few bumps in the night.

Side note: Apparently some bots crapped over your old blog posts comments. Well, unless you WANT ATM scam card stuff plastered there.

Be well.

I hope you haven't been getting shit for this.

I've been following you since like the early 2000s, and it takes guts to do what you're doing.

This is our future (within the next 10 years) and you're at the absolute forefront of it.

If you look at the current scenario with regards to the grants for small business expansion, the federal government actually offers no direct grants. There are however, some programs by the government, through which grants for research and development activities that a small business might carry out are provided by the SBA. Then there are indirect grants in the form of small business loan guarantees as well as subsidized loans, wherein you get loans at reduced rate of interest from the bank as the government pays some part of your loan. Or if you default on your loan payment, the government pays the bank on your behalf. As you can see, there are opportunities galore for small business funding and grants through Mr Pedro and his funding company. They offer a loan at 2% rate which is very affordable. As a start-up business owner you just have to make an effort to find the one that is most suitable for your business goals.
Contact Mr Pedro on pedroloanss@gmail.com for loans.
All the best!

I'm so Happy to write this article because I know it will help a lot of people who are suffering from Herpes. I am here to testify about the wonderful and most safe cure for herpes . I was positive to the deadly Virus called herpes and I lost hope completely because I was rejected even by my closest friends. I searched online to know and inquire about a cure for herpes and I saw testimony online on how Herbalist called Dr Osamu who cured so many people from Herpes virus and other similar diseases. I decided to contact the great herbalist because I know that nature has the power to heal everything. I contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will help me with the natural roots and herbs. After 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure is ready and he sent it to me via UPS and it got to me after 4 days. I used the medicine as he instructed (morning and evening ) and I got cured. it's really like a dream but I'm so happy that's the reason i decided to also add more comment of Him so that more people can be saved just like me and if you need his help, contact him via Email: dr.osamuherbalremedy@gmail.com or WhatsApp:+2349012406016
