    i would consider getting a tattoo but i'm a loser who can't deal with pain. also the only place i'd probably get them is on my arm and i have an arm condition.

    tattoos can be cool though. i think the idea of being inspired by something enough you're willing to (semi) permanently add it on your body is really cool. even if they're bad ones. i'm not into sleeve tattoos and the like, though, just judging from looks. not that anyone should care.

    I couldn't stand getting a tattoo
    Not because of the pain (which isn't that bad I've heard) I just think its incredibly retarded to permanently scar yourself. To me, its just not worth it one bit.
    maybe it's because we mod smart people and smart people tend to share a lot of the same characteristics.....

    I used to debate about whether it's worth it to put something on my body for the rest of my life. But, y'know, I work with people who are dying. Life is incredibly short, and at the end of it all, some ink in your dermis really isn't a big deal. If it's nice to look at and it makes someone happy, I don't think it's "retarded" at all.

    Transplanting olfactory cells from a paralyzed dog's nose into its spinal cord initiated some neural regeneration, allowing the dog functional use of its hind legs once again.

    Understand that.

    Though we are lightyears and millions of dollars away from applying this in the human arena, we have made the lame walk once more. Miracles become reality in the hands of neuroscience. My professional field beats all of the rest of yours. Haha.

    I dunno about lightyears. I mean, vet medicine and human medicine are pretty similar. The millions of dollars thing... Yeah, probably. Everything costs money, unfortunately.

    Or maybe I just saw the lyrics and maybe saw a butterfly somewhere iduno.

    Edit: So wait, nose cells were put into a spine and created a re-working leg?

    Good job using ableist language to insult other people in this forum! This is, like, silver-star level dickheadedness, at least.

    But...does it rock? Because mine does (lolzlolzlolz).
    But seriously that's really cool.

    Although you know that lightyear is a measure of distance and not time, right? I'm assuming you do. This is more for people who will read that and perpetuate the misconception.

    Animals like cats, with their spinal cords severed just above the hind limb extensions - so motor messages from the brain cannot reach the legs - reflexively perform the walking motion when placed on a moving treadmill (I assume the same goes for dogs). Paraplegic humans can't seem to manage this same interesting feat. It's also not an answer to more particular disabilities that come with nerve damage in the spinal cord, like fine motor articulation or bladder control. Maybe lightyears was too strong an estimate, but I'm being cautious. =P

    I've known it ever since the first Gym in Yellow version.

    So I don't know why I used it to imply a timeframe. How inattentive of me. (Though time and distance - space - are really the same, just different forms of the single spacetime continuum, so... *nerd nerd*)

    Well you are right and all but for me it just doesn't sound appealing at all

    You of all people should know lightyears are a distance of measurement, not time.

    I wonder... Do you think maybe it has something to do with us being bipedal? The reason in my brain is way simpler than me trying to explain my thoughts so I'll just leave it at that question. You have a way more extensive knowledge of this kind of thing.

    In other news the weather is nice
    It's fine if it doesn't appeal to you. It doesn't make a decision "retarded," though. =)

    Good news is it was an experimental trial, not just a one-off thing. Link, along with a before-after video of one of the successful dogs.

    I really don't know. I guess it certainly could be. I was sort of wondering if it had anything to do with our greater reliance on the neocortex. I mean to say, our brainstem and hindbrain still manage involuntary life processes, and humans do still exhibit some mild forms of motor decision-making and control at the spinal level, but we're all tied up to the cortices. Voluntary movements depend on the neural networks that begin in the primary motor cortex (we may coincide theoretically here, since bipedalism and our developed brains are evolutionarily linked). Besides that, the link mentions simple distance as an obstacle - some axons travel all the way down the spinal cord, after all (not necessarily ones relevant to this study in detail). The regeneration in the study didn't extend across even the full distance from brain to spinal cord.

    Anyway, I don't -

    Actually, it looks like the full-text journal article is accessible. Score! Link.

    Guess I am one of those "retards" then... ಠ_ಠ

    I suppose one could say it's "retarded" (how clever) to have such a silly viewpoint, Zenotwapal.
