Uh… if I had an amputated limb, I’m not sure I want the remains back years later.
What earthly legal reason did he have for keeping an amputated arm all those years? Ghastly. Why isn’t he in jail?
”Paravelo” Article and video.
In London we also say MPH
How does the robot know if you have had too much to drink and stop service??
The most popular drink at the Robot Bar is the Screwdriver.
Because the English still use miles per hour on the highway.
@AshburnStadium – unless you’re very, very old, you weren’t the first to “create” that Philips Milk of Magnesia joke.
So when people return to the US from being on deployment, whether Afghanistan or Viet Nam, there are supposed to be safeguards about what they bring back. Do you suppose the inspector approved Dr. Sam’s returning with an arm, or even the bones of an arm? Curious.
We still use Imperial measurements for a lot of things. Asking us to use metric for anything other than temperature leaves us stumped.
people are ignoring the most obvious reason why its in mph – its an american strip, not a british one. it doesnt matter where the people theyre talking about live, it matters where their target audience is.
also, forget legal issues, WHY did he keep the arm?
The paravelo looks simply like a powered paraglider mounted to a bike. hardly a big deal. They have them already mounted to unpowered trikes already, because the fan provides all the power you need. Since someone asked, they’re steered by hand brakes, about like a regular parachute.
Would an amputee be interested in having a memento of his former limb? Speaking for myself, yes. Unfortunately, I did not think to ask anyone to save a section of my humerus for me when they shortened my stump, or I would have been glad to have that as a souvenir. Was it gruesome for a doctor to keep the bones of an amputated limb? What makes you think that? How is saving a memento of someone whose life you have saved any more gruesome than having an articulated skeleton for study purposes? Was it illegal to save such? No good reason for it to be illegal!
During the Vietnam war, there were two Vietnams: North and South. My question is, was the soldier, whose life he saved from the North or the South. It may seem trivial, but during that war, it would have been standard procedure to save an ally’s life, but more difficult to save an enemy’s.
