} There isn't a simple answer to your question. Let's look at some of
} the options and see if any suit your needs:
} 1) Join the Air Force or NASA as a test pilot, and get
} severely injured crashing a prototype. This method is not
} recommended, due to the high costs, starting from six million
} US dollars.
} 2) Join the police force, and get severely injured during a
} drugs bust or other operation. The drawbacks with this one
} include the obligatory traffic duty and the fact that certain
} types of women are highly attracted to you afterwards but the
} police designers see no reason to add "those extra bits".
} You'll probably also have to fight a giant android police
} robot to keep your job every so often, and there's often
} various classified software "features" written into your Prime
} Objectives by programmers who ought to know better.
} 3) Become a pirate and have your hand blown away during a
} naval action. This can then be replaced with a hook or a pair
} of pincers. This method is frequently used to obtain
} biomedical engineering, especially among villains in Bond
} movies, but it is probably not what you are looking for.
} 4) Join the Beresford University of Medicine and volunteer for
} experimental research. While you may be disappointed with the
} results, there is a finite chance that you will be selected
} for the cyborb vats. Here your brain will be mounted in a
} machine and you will find you have the strength of ten men,
} etc, etc. Note, however, that there are likely to be side
} effects of an unpredictable nature. Beresford University of
} Medicine are currently under investigation for unethical
} behaviour, so you will need to be quick.
} 5) Find the yellow brick road. At one end you will find the
} Wizard of Oz, who conducts biomedical experiments. Be warned
} that you might end up with certain behavioural deficiencies,
} such as a lack of courage, educational difficulties, obsession
} with rainbows or an overwhelming tendancy to wear red shoes.
} 6) DIY, preferably with a group of like-minded friends is an
} option. A life of crime-fighting is often selected.
} 7) Join Knight Industries as a janitor. Not everyone realises
} that Kit, the Knightrider car, was once Eustace Stuckley, an
} ageing site maintenance man.
} 8) Stavros (S.T.A.Vros@dalek.supreme.headquarters.edu) may be
} worth contacting now that all public buildings are required to
} have disabled access ramps.
} 9) Startrek (TNG) have some unfinished projects on the slab.
} That should be enough to be getting on with. You owe the
} Oracle an arm and a leg.
