    Would you put your brain in a robot body?

    Oh my, I loved that show, but I loved that episode in particular.

    But I'm already a robot, so no.

    Only if I ended up super bad ass, like Caroline did. So yeah, I'd do it...for science.

    Yes. Only if I still had the sense of feeling (touch) - otherwise. OF COURSE!

    Depends on the stipulations, if I wound up like Metallo then god no. If I was Krang that'd be kinda cool, minus those meddling teenagers screwing up my plans.

    My brain in a robot body is actually the end-game for my immortality plan. Step one: full body cryo freeze until science can safely bring me back. Step two: brain in robo bod. Step three: profit.

    I do a kick-ass Baxter the Fly impression, we should team up and do a show built solely on the villains perspective.

    In all seriousness, would you augment your own body a la Deus Ex or Six Million Dollar Man? Do you believe that such artificial editing is a good, ethical thing? Discus.

    It would be amazing for curing cancer, blindness, deafness, amputees etc.
    But stuff like faster reactions, guns on arms...I think we all know only Barrett from FF7 can handle that shit. I think that stuff would kind of be self-destroying if it's given to the wrong person.

    Yeah you were pretty clear... :roll:

    Anyways, yeah I'd probably do it. The mental augs alone would be worth it. I probably wouldn't apply it so dastardly but I'm sure it would help in a variety of ways. Also convincing people would be cool.

    No need for augs; I'd opt for the the full on body replacement. I'm thinking kinda Terminator-ish with a human looking appearance. My brain in the body may work at first, but I'd probably have some nanoscopic machines convert it cell by cell into something more sturdy and efficient.

    And it's my body so ethics can bite my shiny metal ass.
