    good for him. If I had to choose between a wheelchair and terminator-legs I`d choose terminator-legs.

    I don`t think this is an offense post at all. It`s cool. Yes... it`s very sad that this man has lost both his legs, BUT he his very fortunate to be able to take advantage of today`s technology. And he`s lucky to be able to afford them (DAMN, they must be expensive!). And, I admire his gumption to learn to walk again, instead of using a wheelchair (not that there`s anything wrong with that).

    Clearly, he`s not ashamed... would he be wearing shorts if he were??

    This is not a sad pic. If I lost my legs and could use prosthetic legs that awesome looking I would be pumped. Its much better than being confined to a wheelchair and if this guy had long pants on you likely would have no idea aside from a slight limp

    They do look pretty cool, but it`d be a hell of a lot cooler if someone designed some prosthetics based on the designs of the Transformers.

    Insensitive? Go away. Save your pity for someone who wants it. This may be a robot on public transportation as the caption implies or it may be some guy who sat on the train tracks to protest the sound of trains going through his neighborhood. From the photograph, you can only make up assumptions.
    My take: That is some kick ass tech, and this is a guy who does not mind showing it off.

    Lt. Dan! You got magic legs!

    To everyone crying "foul!", please notice the guy is wearing shorts and therefore is not likely ashamed of his prostheses. They look like they cost a fortune; I`d show those bad boys off, too. I don`t think this photo`s exploitative at all.

    @koolwalla (and all), look up artist/dancer Lisa Bufano. She`s done some amazing stuff based on her amputations and assorted prosthetics. Great sense of humor about it too. She`d hold her fingerless hand up to drunks and ask how many fingers she was holding up...

    "God bless our men and women in uniform."

    ...except the ones who went war-crazy and started killing civilians for sport. Saw some pictures of people in uniform holding obliterated heads like trophies. Horrifying stuff.

    First thing I thought when I saw that wasn`t "OMG robot hehehehe" it was "Holy poo thats awesome. Imagine 50 years ago when people still used like peg-legs. Or maybe not I`m not that great on amputee history."

    Big props to the double amp that just doesn`t give a drat what anyone else thinks.

    There`s a guy in my neighborhood that has one of those powered hand prosthetics that`s actuated by nerve input. Instead of the faux-hand they`re made with, he asked for his to be made to resemble a straight-up claw like off those old 50`s era sci-fi robots. The thing looks awesome, and like he says, he`s never wanted for a wrench since then.
