    Shouldn't there be a minimum amount, so no one takes advantage? Like $20? $5? $40? I'm someone who likes to see the good in people, but I …don't.

    :abyssgazer:

    Why don't they take the dead ones out?

    If you got hungry enough, could they serve as a food source?

    Well, organs aren't just lying around disconnected in your body. Even if an organ isn't working properly any more, I suspect it is still "connected" to the circulatory system among other things, so removing it wouldn't be as easy as just keeping it in there. I guess they would remove them only if he was running of out space ("I'm sorry, Mr. Alexander, but all your organ slots are full" :lol:) or they started causing actual harm.

    Bingo. The kidneys are actually located in a pretty protected spot. They can remove them more easily with minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery now, but trying to implant one in that area, they would have to open it up wider, spread some ribs... a mess. Unless the kidneys are causing harm (as in Polycystic Kidney Disease) they just atrophy and basically calcify and don't cause any harm.

    As for a minimum donation, QFI:RtR is definitely not as large as QFI was, so if someone where really wants to scam the game for a dollar pledge... their dollar and the small want to help out is enough for me to give them a copy of my game.

    Money better spent than Wasteland 2, that's for sure.

    Have you considered seeking refuge in Europe?
    We have this thing called healthcare. Should last and keep you healthy until the illuminati have finally managed to eradicate socialism communism.

    Might want to train on a new accent so we don't notice you're American though... Folks nowadays take less kindly to y'all. Don't hide it with a fake British accent either, we're all pretty happy to finally be rid of those.
    Canadian accent would definitely work... but you best come up with a damned good cover story, because leaving Canada, what's that all aboot eh? Maybe claim a maple syrup allergy or something...

    I think an American accent will do just fine. The picture of the US within Europe at the moment is somewhere between Idiocracy and Escape From L.A.
    Everyone will believe you wanted to escape. Refugees welcome, but really this time.

    Man, I live so close to Canada, it's like home. It's just a short car ride for me to go get some Poutine. And apparently now legal weed. So Canadian accent? No prob, I basically already have it.

    I think we'll easily beat the $5k goal. Where are the stretch goals? Maybe some extra augments.

    You've got me figured out. I've given my wife instructions to spend the money on booze, and one t-shirt that says, "THANK FUCK FOR THE CODEX", and to send you all a pic of her wearing it by the seaside somewhere.

    You gotta have plans.

    hey man, are you sure you still have enough Essence points left for one more bio-modification? i know they lower it less than cyberware does, but still... (btw, if you "chrome out" on too much cyberware, what is it called when you overdo it with bioware?)

    anyway, best of luck

    Did we agree if the operation was performed turn-based or real-time w. pause?
