Who is that?!
That man can't see. The designer should be sacked immediately.

Future Economics
I wonder how our Cyborg lives [already here, on some level] will inform traditional Economics: supply, demand, value.

As a practical matter, I have already begun my Cyborg journey and I look forward to its future.

Here's a taste of it:

It's just a nano-dress*

 

*disclosure: It's not made of nanobots, it's just really really small.

- I knew a man like you, it was worth like 6 million dollars, how about you?

- Nah, I'm just a million dollar, baby.

Affordable At Last
Well, it's not all bad, the Affordable Health Care Act helps pay for most of the procedure

pay for themselves
Don't worry. The retrofits pay for themselves within 5 years.  I'm way more productive on the assembly line. . . and i cut my risk factor for melanoma in half.

Re: First time that expression actually made sense
One myth is that the phrase comes from portrait painters charging more for paintings that include more of the subject's body in them. Head and shoulders is cheapest; then one with the arms in; and then the whole body. It's a fun theory but I reckon it's a myth as I don't see why "arm and a leg" would come out of this. If the saying was "It'll cost you a pair of legs" then I think it would make more sense.
