'Buffy and Angel had gone out before and Buffy wasn't really comfortable talking to Spike and Angel at the same time, because now Spike and Buffy had been going out for 6 months and Buffy was afraid that Angel might tell Spike that him and Buffy went out, but it turns out that Angel had told Spike that they went out, Spike was heartbroken that Buffy never told him that they went out, so Spike broke up with Buffy to get back at her for not telling him that Angel and Buffy went out.'

Seriously. No matter how much I love FMA, some things aren't meant to be in our world. It's anime, no matter how you look at it. Poor cat.


How dare they try and develope help for those who lost limbs rolleyes.gif

I don't get why this is being called automail though..it's just a prostetic limb FFS. And don't moan about the cat, Animal testing is very usefull. If it had been tested on a human and killed said human you would be more pissed about that.
I say bring on the Cyborg kitties.

Human testing would probably have been better.

It would have given the scientists a better idea of how 'Automail' on the scale for a human would work, not to mention it would probably be consensual.

You wanna be the guina pig for that one?

I've oft wondered if Auto-Mail could work in our world. I mean, it's really a good idea, fandom or not. I should think it brilliant if we could get this to work out.

Attention Manga Lust fans:
Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction.
In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

Honestly lots of our current technology came from old science fiction, nanotechnology, lots of computer stuff, weapons of all kinds, and AI. Just watch "How William Shatner Changed the World" if you don't believe me. Also, testing on animals occurs in most everything we create. It is a necessary thing. Also, if it weren't for such animal testing my dog may have died years earlier than she did. They used new treatments that were being tested after being hit by a car.

THat's pretty cool ! The only bad thing is that, what if the injury was serious (ex. burned by fire, etc) and the nerves doesn't work or remain? (remember Falman (was it him?) in the manga. He couldn't use automail).

So did the cat have pain the WHOLE time or did it go away?

The point of using other mammals is that if something bad happens in an experiment involving a technique or drug that could possibly be used on humans it's better that a human not die/suffer for it.

Intriguing! I'd like to back up Sensenic's request for a source smile.gif

I was thinking... Did anybody here ever watch Dark Angel? It's just that the topic reminded me of Phil (later, Logan's) exoskeleton and if that had any merit in reality, either.

Actually, I read in Popular Science that a man who had lost both arms in a an accident was fitted with robotic arms which use nerve links like in FMA, and work quite nicely.

It's a very interesting thing, and I'm wondering if anyone else has heard of it.

I saw something like that on Discovery some time ago, but its nowhere as sophisticated as automail. And it looks pretty ugly.

The whole cat thing requires a full debate on ethics and animal experimentation to resolve, man.Check out Wikipedia.

And I'll put some other banner up when I feel like it. Until then, be content to stare at this measly little paragraph.

I see what you mean there. Then the "automail" wouldn't have a place to connect the nerves to. It could be connected to nerves FURTHER into the body, if it was possible, but then automail wouldn't funtion properly.


And it was Havoc that couldn't get the automail.

<Hi Greed貪欲, I tool out your gif image from your sig because the linked site benjamin.baudrit.free.fr
is known to host malwares. Since, apparently you probably visited this site to get the image you used
for your sig, you may like to check your computer for possible spywares, just in case. ^^ ~ Tombow>
