    And health monitoring systems are totally legal, if your doctor estimates you need one.

    That's why I must conclude that what this guy did is just a sadomasochist prank. It has strictly no technical or medical purpose, except that he must think his phony "biochip" is more hype than a gothic tatto.

    You didn't watch the video.

    The modchip guy stated at the beginning that some medical procedures are legal which, according to the same standards used against him, should be illegal.

    No, it is not worth the pain and even if it were painless, I wouldn't do it. I refuse to wear anybody's technology in my body for the sake of "keeping track" and anybody's mark on my body. I like to think of myself as "no man's land" and unless it signified my tribe, faith or clan, I wouldn't have anything to do with it. I think it's foolish.

    It's bullshit designed to impress gullible internet fools.

    Duh.

    In fact, a few months ago I watched a similar video from a guy who implanted magnets in his wrist to hold his ipod or something. I decided it was bullshit. I get to decide what's bullshit.

    Even a "cyborg" cockroach sparks a moral debate in the crazy Puritanical US.

    Cool concept, lame execution. I like that people are starting to embrace this kind of thing, though. It won't be but a few short years before it is pretty common to see biochips implants and such (minus the freakishness and impracticality). Am I scared of the disappearance of privacy? Na, I really just don't give a shit. Really, I think it'll be good.

    I think I'll try a similar thing, but with a chocolate bar.

    See if I eat my own arm after a few weeks.
