#644: Surgery


[[A surgeon is standing over a patient on a gurney.]]

Patient: While you’re doing the surgery, can you also implant this in my arm?

Surgeon: A USB port?

Man: Just wire it up to some nerves.

Surgeon: … This won’t let your brain control USB devices, you know.

Man: Sure – I just want the hardware.

Man: The rest is software; I’m sure there will be a project to patch together support eventually.

Surgeon: Ah – you’re a Linux user, I see.

Man: Yeah, how’d you know?
