Some nice looking buildings there.
Sort of reminds me of North Korea. Maybe the same architects?

My brother recently met a woman who had lived the first 22 years of her life unable to speak, eat, move, or got to the bathroom by herself because, in laymans terms, the two hemispheres of her brain were electrically disconnected.

She had brain surgery where they essentially put in an artificial link between the two hemispheres which is powered by a battery pack implanted in her chest.

She can now function as a normal human being (eat/talk/etc).

The real kicker? She is getting a battery pack upgrade soon; it comes with a USB port in which to charge the pack O.O

The next step is to have her plug in in place of sleeping entirely!
