I've got my voice back, I've started the Daredevil recaps, and I've reported on the mad bomber and the long-overdue departure of Megyn Kelly from NBC. Now, it's time to loop back around to a weird, but potentially very important story that I wanted to touch on before the news cycle starts over again: the booming trend of microchipping humans. As NPR reported, it's all the rage in Sweden and if there's money to be made, and convenience to be had, you can bet it's going to make its way to America before long.
It's time to re-watch Blade Runner, because the future is coming and we're all going to be cyborgs sooner or later. Might as well get the details of it now, while it's still developing.
