Switching sinuses out and getting new filters instead of drainage and pneumonia when the temperature keeps sliding up and down the thermometer?

That's a "yes, please."

I'd like a series of nozzles that allow me to change the sound of my farts.

That depends... would these parts be inexpensive by dint of being shoddy and prone to breaking quickly?
 
2019-03-06 05:20:28 PM  
Hell yes. New right foot, right thumb, left shoulder and maybe a more pronounced jaw.  Are eyes included? I'd like better vision and maybe a more interesting color than brown.

I'm going to save my parts for when I need them.

I read this book once where people were born and died to serve as replacement parts. After the fourth or fifth transplant, they died. They were just ordinary people other than that. They didn't have much, but of course they were taken care of, because they were valuable. They all lived in these little communes. Villages.

It was strange book.

That's either way too soon or you should look up last nights sad news.

If I can keep rolling on after market parts, why not? If it works for a Dodge Dart, it could work for me.
Hell, maybe I'll swap out my K frame and drop in a big block...

I'd like my eyesight to be better and not need glasses/contacts anymore. Some new knees that got messed up playing soccer and softball. And in true Fark fashion, a new liver, just in case.

Left shoulder.  Fell in January and I most likely have a torn rotator cuff.  Extremely painful...definitely makes me aware of my posture because if I even think of slouching it makes me pay in pain.  And tylenol, advil, and ibuprofen don't do tidily squat.  Go for MRI on Saturday morning.  I have a 25% co-insurance on the MRI...which is apparently $804 bucks.  They are charging my insurance $3200 apparently.  After they told me the amount I will need to pay, they went through a list of payment options.  The last option (other than pay partial, get a loan, etc) was to pay the flat rate as if I didn't have insurance.  The cost that way?  $700 total.  This is insane pricing.

I have so many failing parts even a cheap, chinese knockoff that I could replace every couple of years would be nice. Back, shoulders, knees, hands, kidneys, the list goes on and on. At this point it would be like nirvana just to be able to wake up and not have everything hurt. And, what doesn't hurt usually doesn't work... I just love getting old.

I don't know about the inexpensive part but yeah, I have an idea.

Yep.

Ears, left arm, guts. I would gladly swap them out for something that actually does what it's supposed to dk.

They had a few movies like that as well where rich people would clone themselves and get parts from the clones.

I wouldn't mind getting new hips and a lower back and a knee. I would like them to have guns placed inside so I can have them pop out when I need them. Possibly replace an eye with a laser.
