Maybe a bottle of water instead of something RED for trying out the new arm.
It's ok. We're laughing *with* the disabled person.
Went to school with her. She is super upfront about not having an arm and she would play pranks on people.
She had a normal prosthetic and would tell her RA that someone stole it and threw it down the trash chute.
She was also great in haunted houses. Very scary to see an arm actually come off someone.
It's interesting that she still naturally clenches her left hand when she panicked.
My buddy was one of the first soldiers to receive the robotic prosthetic arms now commonly used by the VA. Early on, when they were fine-tuning it, he would have these kind of problems.
He dropped drinks all the time. One time it was so powerful that he crushed a beer bottle when trying to grab it with the hand. That day he took it off until the techs could examine it.
To quote him, "Fuck me. It's a good thing I didn't start the day by jacking off."
edit: (no, he didn't really jack off with it according to him. They did warn him about that.)
Upside of having a cyborg hand with articulated digits: No skin to get scratched or injured.
Downside: No skin means your palm won't mold to whatever you're holding onto.
I would like to upvote, but that hand isn't shitty at all. Really cool.
The title starts with her name like we're all supposed to know who she is. What am I missing here? Who the hell is Nicole Kelly?
I'm actually impressed she knew she was dropping it before it was fully out of the robotic hand. She wasn't exactly staring at it so is their some sort of feeling in that arm?
