Kurt Broz
THE Kurt Broz is not just a personality for Nerdbot, but he's also the editor-in-chief and a real live scientist! Born on the snowy shores of Lake Erie in good ol' Cleveland, Ohio, Kurt Broz has been there and back again, now residing in sunny Southern California. You can find THE Kurt Broz in cosplay, buying comics, hiking, and even writing for Nerdbot and WLFK Productions. He may be a child of the 80's but he is certainly a man of the world.

Archaeologists in Italy uncovered an amazing find: A man with a knife hand.

According to a paper published in Journal of Anthropological Sciences by Micarelli et. al., a Medieval Italian man likely in his 40’s was uncovered with an awesome, unique feature. He lost a hand to blunt force trauma and had it replaced with a freaking knife prosthesis. That. Is. Awesome.

This man was likely a warrior or fighter, living between the 6th and 8th century AD, and he he this – or another – prosthesis for a while. The bones showed healing and his teeth showed wear from pulling a leatherback arm strap. Aside from having the best fake hand ever, having a healed prosthesis showed that his culture had a relatively high level of care and medical tech. History is awesome.
