where the drat does it say he was an idiot, it could have been an accident, a pure accident, if u had both ur arms blown to smithereens in an accident would u want people telling u that it was ur fault?

Very nice, but as they said, incredibly expensive.

Funny, years ago I had an idea of prosthetic limbs connecting to nerve endings to fully simulate original movement, I never knew they already existed ^_^;

"They should give him a bionic head instead"

I`d rather have my own arms. But it`s pretty cool that this stuff is possible, makes life so much better for people who lost a limb.

Btw, the msnbc player works fine for me (I`m also using Firefox).

Oh, and, LMAO at Neilthesheep. Orphans are so cute and cuddly and greasy, it`d be awesome if he saved some.
Stupid frat boy nonsense.

Sorry for the double-post.

I need some of those! I mean, look. You can open up Burger King Chicken Fries. And regular fries is even MORE impressing. All the ladies would be on me!

What a dumb idiot. Watch him blow up those arms and his legs too this July 4th. And I will find him and laugh at his idiot face! HAH!

cool! it`s like that guy in Mortal KombatII..except he can`t shoot missiles out of them....yet.
On the other hand (no pun intended) my feelings on this kid revolve around how his hand got blown off. For instance...if he picked up the firecrackers because he was saving a box of kittens and orphans...then he`s cool. If he was just a drunk jackass injured on a bet from some friends...then he sucks...and shouldn`t have awesome robot hands.
