Hi!
« on: September 01, 2008, 04:47:10 PM »
I know I've not been around for a while. I started a new job but then ended up back in hospital so I've been a bit preoccupied.
Anyway, I've missed you guys and thought it was time to stick my nose back round the door.

It looks like you have a few new members, which is good. It was also great to see some old faces.

Well, it is about time! I've been wondering about you. Hope you are well again.

Yeah, I'm getting there thanks.  Life would be great if they could invent a bionic kidney. LOL!

True. And a few other parts too.

Hey yeah, that could be a new topic.

If you could have any bionic part, what would it be and why?

I'd have a new kidney, just so it works, and bionic legs so I can run fast enough to keep up with my kids.

Welcome back 'Bob'.  I thought you'd been a bit quiet.  As an Ice Age woman you probably appreciate a bit of global warming ;-)

Bionic parts?   No thanks.  I'm rather attached to my semi-worn parts, even if my adrenal gland did try and kill me a few years ago.  It still makes a practice lunge every now and then, but I'm ready for it these days and generally parry the attacks with a deft move.

A bionic part? I was just at a sex toy party (and boy was that a mistake) and can rule out anything in that department.

I'm glad you are back and just as an aside, I believe they ARE working on a bionic kidney. But that may have been some fiction or predictive thing I've recently read.

I would like nice hair. I would like it to be a pretty color rather than turning gray. I wouldn't even mind all gray. I would like it to be sleek and move like silk when I shake my head. I don't think that would be bionic, but I would like it.

Glad you are doing better and back at the keyboard.

Welcome back, Bob. 

I'm with Gyppo.  Nothing bionic for me.  I'm waiting for them to perfect cloning.  Once I have my clone in place, I'll send him to work and take the rest of my life off.  ;D

Good to see you back Jo!

I'd like a bionic spinal column. My current one is giving me a lot of grief and making me feel like an old lady (compressed disks and nerve impingement causing sciatica and breathing problems and all sorts of old lady problems) - but I'm not an old lady!! Not quite yet I don't think...

Welcome back Jo. :-*

I'm with Sat - a new spine would be right up my street. Oh, and a bionic butt - for all those pesky injections. ;)

They already have bob...  the trouble is that the current version is a little too large (you need a trolly to move it about) and requires mains power to run.  

But it only need improvements and it will be made smaller and better...   Just look at mobile phones... started the size and weight of a house brick, now they hang on your ear. ;D


As for me... Bionic Eyes...   to be able to zoom in or record what is seen...  so useful.  ;D

Wow, I was only joking about the bionic kidney. I'm amazed that they are really working on one. They'll have to make it smaller though cos I'm only 5' tall and very slim.

To Cathy,
              a bionic butt sounds great. No more support knickers!!!!!
