Random Thought

I know I'm supposed to be smart and all, and this question may be idiotic... but I'm going to ask it anyway:

If they're going to insert titanium pieces into my spine to prop my vertebrae up to the appropriate height, do you think that will make me taller?

I find it interesting that you're focusing on the height thing when you should be talking about the bionic thing.

You're about to be that much closer to The Six Million Dollar Man.

You will be a cyborg and excellent theme music will accompany you when you run or jump.

True. Do you think I get to choose the theme music myself?

I doubt that you get to choose your own music. If bionic superheros got to choose their own theme music, then surely supervillains would get to choose their own, as well.

Now, if supervillains got to choose their own music, there would be a common problem: Many supervillains think they're actually the good guys. So they'd pick music that didn't jive with the way that society was meant to feel about them, and everybody would be confused. People are not confused by such things because supervillain music is always evil regardless of the villain's perception of his or herself. So, by applying the contrapositive, we prove that bionic superheros do not get to choose their own theme music. Q.E.D.

BUT - if others of us get some kind of say in what gets chosen for you... do you have any requests?

And... as I was reading your post again, the following insight occurred to me: I ain't no doctor or nothin', but I'd be willing to bet that the nerves in your spine are a perfect length for your current height. If I was your surgeon, I probably wouldn't risk stretching out those nerves any more than necessary, even if it meant giving you an extra inch of height.

--But definitely worth asking anyway...
