Jude April 16, 2019 at 12:43 am 6 days ago If the day ever comes that some maniac slices off my arm, I hope I can stay as stoic as Mr. Zorilla has, with a mere “ow!” I also hope that a skilled medibot’s on hand to re-attach it as I’m sure Mr. Zorilla’s will be. Owen Smith April 16, 2019 at 9:11 am 5 days ago Don’t be so sure Mr. Zorilla is going to get his own arm back. Other options could be much funnier. Evyl Keith April 17, 2019 at 8:07 am 4 days ago Indeed (evyl chuckle and smyle that would make Headly La Marr envious) indeed, funny. Yes, funny…and other things. Must make a note to have that right arm replace with a cluster of tentacles. TB April 16, 2019 at 11:50 am 5 days ago Yeah, this would be a lot more horrifying in a world where spare limbs aren’t practically dispensed in vending machines. Mic April 16, 2019 at 2:04 am 6 days ago Well, fuck. Did not see that coming D: KQY April 16, 2019 at 10:18 am 5 days ago This really is going down the road of Monty Python’s Black Knight! 😛 PeterK April 16, 2019 at 11:14 am 5 days ago Welp. Dad actually managed to do something kinda right there. Good for him. Tobias April 16, 2019 at 8:00 pm 5 days ago Well, he’s now missing a left, so right was pretty much his only option. AlInfamous April 16, 2019 at 2:39 pm 5 days ago We know what happened that last time a matured person talked to Medibot. Peter Rogan April 16, 2019 at 5:47 pm 5 days ago Ahem. “It’s all fun and games until somebody loses an arm.” There. I said it. That said, it’s going to be interesting to see how Mauricio’s psychosis processes maiming the dad he wasn’t really sure he had. (P)ause, (R)ewind, (U)ndo, (D) Redo? Also, Hypock is right. Mauricio IS disarming. FlySwatter April 16, 2019 at 7:03 pm 5 days ago I can honestly say “I didn’t see that coming”, despite the fact that you clearly (in retrospect) telegraphed the joke. I’m unsure if this qualifies as a “bravo” or “golf clap” moment. Take both Chris. Christopher Baldwin April 16, 2019 at 8:01 pm 5 days ago Ha! Thank you, @Flyswatter! 🙂 Herb April 16, 2019 at 8:02 pm 5 days ago Good luck tying a tourniquet when one hand is a buzz saw. Muzhik April 16, 2019 at 9:20 pm 5 days ago @Herb, no, you simply get Hypock to use the laser blaster to cauterize the wound. Randall R. Besch April 16, 2019 at 10:36 pm 5 days ago In that world cutting off an arm is a flesh wound. I really thought Mr. Zorilla would get a more grievous wound like in the heart or cut in half… Though reattachment could be possible if they are good at regrowing and mending nerves. Though he will bleed out in seconds if they don’t get him in a medibot triple time pronto! If not used more carefully a LASER can just turn you to exploding vapors. But when my middle toe was amputated they did us heat to cauterize it closed. Another one of those open mouthed scenes that have a humor chaser. OH!!! Gregg Eshelman April 19, 2019 at 3:44 am 2 days ago Have to have a bit of a stump to apply a tourniquet for a severed arm to not be very quickly result in fatal exsanguination. The left and right brachial arteries are up there with the descending aorta to the legs and the carotid arteries for fast bleed out. That’s what Otzi “the iceman” died of. Stone arrowhead that cut his left brachial artery. Surfer Bethany Hamilton got her left arm bit off by a shark, fortunately leaving just barely enough for another person at the scene to get his belt on for a tourniquet. Gregg Eshelman April 19, 2019 at 3:46 am 2 days ago Bethany lost 60% of her blood in the short time between the shark chomp and having her arm stump constricted.
