    @persevere67 Luckily some people live in countries with good healthcare systems so stuff like this will eventually be state sponsored where I live and countries like mine.

    @xDarkside101x my god, why are you getting worked up on this, who cares

    Wallace & Gromit: The Wrong Trousers, much? o_O

    @GrinningTurtle42 How do you know he doesn’t know when to go? Just because you can’t use your legs properly, doesn’t mean your bladder and dick have automatically fucked up too. Completely different bodily system

    1:14 that’s a tad uncomfortable, don’t you think lmao

  13. xDarkside101x says:

    @mrtitanic2 No I didn’t misinterperet what you said. Basically I made your comment out to be that “this guy with the exoskeleton isn’t normal”.

  14. mrtitanic2 says:

    @xDarkside101x  nothing is wrong with mis interpreted what i meant, what i was meaning was if anyone could get this or do you have to have a disibility

  15. stickZrock says:

    @bs000 nope. but eventually the battery will run out . 8 hours goes by very fast if you are walking alot. but yes i know obviously you wont walk to much with this new machine so its a good battery life.

    @Lokim23 First of all, wheelchair-bound people don’t automatically gain weight like they can’t help it. They can eat right just like any other person. Second, it’s funny because it was a perfectly executed dark joke. Sure, it’s gonna offend some people, but some people just like getting offended no matter what.

  17. MrNosfaratu says:

    @GrinningTurtle42 Oh they do, they do. It is really just a matter of priority for the government. Spend millions of dollars to billions on things that MOST people can do without. If a government truly had the people in mind they would take much better care of us. For all the expensive tax’s we pay, to all the companies that gain our hard earned money and keep it for themselves. Take from the rich give to the poor. You get the picture.

  18. GrinningTurtle42 says:

    @TheRickychengshow Uh, the same way he would in a wheel chair? It’s not like he would know when he had to go, so he probably wears something like a diaper for adults…..

  19. GrinningTurtle42 says:

    @MrNosfaratu Well, how the hell will the governments afford it if they have no money to pay for it???

  20. Lokim23 says:

    @GGov86 How is it hilarious when a person can’t walk.. and they gain weight because of it?

  21. Lokim23 says:

    My brother hasn’t been able to walk ever. This really brings hope that one day.. he’ll be able to walk just like everyone else..
