Writing Literary Fiction
so my plan for halloween is to dress up as a Nazgul with my black horse and go trick or treating but instead of saying “trick or treat” i’ll either scream or hiss “Bagginssssssssss, Shhhhhhhire” and then ransack their villages in my search for the One Ring
i was joking

HOW MANY PEOPLE DID YOU TERRORIZE
There is no Dana.
And do you want to know something else?
I never liked your spinach puffs!
Yzma! Put your hands in the air
Forabout a hundred bucks, this man and a friend made a simple prosthetic hand. He can hold a phone, pick up a water bottle, grip a steering wheel, more easily dress himself, and most importantly, he is more comfortable with himself than he was without.
A medical grade prosthetic would work better. He would be able to do more things, more easily. This does not matter, because, even with insurance, he can not afford it.
after the initial cost, any time his hand swelled, or he lost weight, it would not fit properly. If any changes needed to be made it would require am expensive trip to a specialist. With his diy version, he can do that himself.
On the one hand, this is a frustrating example of state of the art care only being available to those who can afford it. On the other, it is a wonderful example of human resourcefulness and ingenuity. The fact that the creators share the plans online makes it even better.
