    Yes and no... The microchip inside of him was infected, but it proves a point that you have to be careful with networked medical devices.

    Never judge a man, untill you have walked a mile in his shoes...
    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.

    Haha, true. I'm also against a giant border wall... You want less violence from drug cartels leaking into El Paso? Legalize pot. Not only can you then tax it and pay off a big chunk of our national debt, but you won't have to waste resources fighting drug cartels, and you can also have our own legitimate farmers growing things, make more jobs, and lower demand! Of course, you'd still have the coke and heroin traffic, but that won't go away ever. It's a good product, people will keep buying, legal or not lol.
