The Fashion Icons of Wearable Computing
I'm really enjoying the #ThisCyborgLife posts at Gizmodo this week. Guy on this left? HUBBA HUBBA. Look at that mustache. That's Dr. Mann (srsly) who started the MIT Wearable Computer team. Smart Clothes.

So. If you had $40k burning a hole in your pocket, what would you do?
I'd buy a house.

Ha! no, I'm kidding. Blond-haired slave and a dumptruck of blowpops. That shit is timeless.

Current Mood: excited excited

When I initially read this, I read something other than "blowpops".

With 40k in my pocket? Pay for school, not worry about food and, once I'm done, start working to change the world.

Geez, you're so... good.

And how!

Not with what I thought "blowpops" originally was. Besides, I never said how I was going to change the world. I might change it such that I own all the bacon and will never share.

Pay off my debt, epic trip around Europe, then back to school. Wouldn't quit my job.

That doesn't sound like "but hookers and blow" to me....

i would buy a dog for 100 dollars and pay the rest of the 40k to a reputable vet to surgically ensure that said dog never poops.

ALL PETS POOP. YOU HAVE TO CLEAN UP AFTER THEM.

You will never own a dog. I refuse to clean up dog poop.

You could save yourself some trouble and buy diapers.
Or a plant...

Have you considered just investing the money in a comprehensive biosphere for your house whereby any given animal's poop is consumed by some smaller animal on the food chain. It works with aquariums, I don't seem any reason it won't work with larger vertebrates. Especially if you have the money to throw around.

Alternatively, I support your plan assuming that the surgeon will make it so it reinvests it's own poop. That way you don't have to feed it again.
