Most ladies find it interesting, but are sexually ambivalent to it. My present crush has said it looks hot on one occasion, which made me really happy.

Had to remove my left leg because of a tumor in my left thigh which was spreading up to my lungs.

Yes. Get weird looks all the time.

How does walking feel like? Is it very different from using 2 natural legs?
Also how did you lose it bud
>>
>>719904609
Yep. They keep me seated in a room while they remove it and run it through the scanners. Then they hand it back to me. There's actually a protocol and everything, whole thing takes about 5 minutes and I'm on my way.

What is the equation for how much force is needed to killer a nigger by clubbing it in the head with your fake leg
>>
>>719904901
Thanks anon :)

>>719904866
Walking feels pretty different. Instead of weight being distributed across the whole leg and all the joints - heel, knee and hip, everything comes down hard on just the hip joint. But the machinery is meant to mimic a human gait in principle. So it looks exactly like normal walking.
>>
>>719904961
Sorry to hear anon. Hand prosthetics are frankly still pretty autistic but have hope, with the tech that's coming out lately as well as 3d printing tech it'll soon be dank and affordable.

Do you believe bleeding-edge mind controlled bionics and artificial muscles would benefit you?
Do you follow the advances in bionics/robotics/bioengineering?
>>
>>719905424
I don't plan to try. Much easier to crack a skull with just about anything else really.
>>
>>719905506
I have several friends in an amputee support group with prosthetic hands. They are constantly telling me about their limitations and how their expectations got dashed pretty hard. Mimicking the intricacies of 5 different finger ball joints is pretty fucking intense.

Note that I said that present level of tech is autistic. In a few years, there will be monumental steps forward, and robot hands will soon catch up with, and then exceed, human ones.
>>
>>719905523
I could do that, but like....I have different pairs of shoes and want to wear different kicks at different times no?
>>
Does anyone think bionics will ever surpass our biological muscles and organs?
Will people eventually hack their arms and legs off willingly to gain an advantage a la deus ex?
>>
>>719905530
Yes I do believe they would benefit me, and I am following bionic tech development and neuroscience pretty closely. The disadvantages of analog stuff are subtle, but they add up.
>>
Do you get phantom pains at all?
>>
>>719906068
At present state of technology, it is unthinkable that people would be intentionally replacing perfectly fine biological limbs with prosthetic ones.

That having been said, 10 years ago it would have been unthinkable that someone with my level of amputation (leg removed hip down) could get a prosthetic.

So you see how it goes.
>>
>>719906229
Bumping for interest
>>
>>719906229
I get phantom sensations, but not necessarily pains. That is to say, I can feel my left leg at all times despite it not being there. However the leg isn't hurting, it's just...there.

Hey OP,
Do you know if you have to have some fucked up condition to get a prosthetic? I'm down for joining the cyborg army
>>
>>719906431
Hmm Alright and yeah I meant to say sensations, I only associated it with pains because being military you get a lot of guys who get pains from thier missing limbs sometimes
>>
>>719906716
Yep I do. Answered that question already, see above.

They never freaked me out. They always felt logical and natural to me for some reason. I know many amputees do get freaked out though.
>>
>>719906702
I stick a small portable WiFi router to it.
>>
>>719906818
You need to get a limb removed. No doctor would do that without good reason. Easiest way to get an amputation would be to get yourself in an accident.
>>
>>719906786
Not a knee or a bionic, but gauntlet.
>>
>>719906729
I really hope that is the case. I also hope space travel improves greatly at some point too. That'd be nice.
>>
>>719906819
Yep I feel you. I did get pains very early on (like the first week after the amputation. But at that point everything was hurting and I was high on morphine and couldn't tell what was phantom and what was real. It was just a blurry mess of agony)

>>719907637
They occasionally spring back up but never ineed terrible or debilitating amounts. Usually just sudden pangs or mild aches.

As for the sensations, they are there 24/7. I feel as though my leg never left, it just became some sort of airy incorporeal ghost thing. The term "phantom" limb is so terribly appropriate.

>>
>>719908646
Do take precautions to limit the damage though. No point turning up at the morgue rather than at the operating theatre.
>>
>>719904071
Why didn't you decide to wear the same colour socks?
>>
>>719908682
Nope. It's a ghost leg, remember, the dog would just pass right through it.

Although I do occasionally feel a variety of sensations - heat, cold, itchiness, etc. Identifying what triggers specific sensations is quite tricky. They seem to pop up rather arbitrarily.
>>
>>719908006

Accelerated healing is possible, but it won't be like wounds instantly regrow perfectly. Plus it would also dump truck your metabolic systems, as you would expend so much stored energy in such a short amount of time. There's also a good risk of developing cancers.

>>719909144
I can't move as fast as I could with my flesh leg. That's because the tech hasn't yet matched the biological counterpart's capacity just yet. But it reaches closer and closer to doing so every year.

There are some advantages though. A flesh leg would get tired and start to hurt after intense exercise because of anaerobic respiration building up lactic acid. This obviously doesn't happen with the metal leg. So the leg never hurts after strenuous exercise.

I recall not really being bothered by the fact that my leg was missing, for a number of reasons

1. I was fucking thirsty after a 12 hour op and was literally begging for water
2. Everything everywhere was hurting and I couldn't locate or specify the pain to parts of my body
3. I'd been preparing for the amputation mentally for a long time so the missing leg was pretty meh
4. I adapt to situations unusually fast

Useful for some positions (for instance doggystyle, or taking someone from behind while they are bent over a table for instance). And a hindrance for some positions (anything that involves lying flat).

It takes like 30 seconds to put on or take off, so whenever I change positions I can strap it on or off as required.

Some chicks dig the whole robot thing, which is great.

Most are sexually ambivalent. That having been said, non-sexually, they get all sympathetic and interested in my life story and inspired by my courage to live with disability etc. so on balance, the impact is positive.

Never could believe how expensive every tiny part is. On avg legs like yours are about $30,000 is parts alone.

Don't underestimate human longevity research. Aging is a symptom of our degrading DNA over time and replication and it is a problem we'll solve soon.

Now as for is both biologically immortal and will voluntarily crew a ship for 40 years of spaceflight, I couldn't say. What good is biological immortality if you're going to serve a decades long prison sentence?
