    Can afford to make bombs, but can't afford healthcare.
    Either the system, or his priorities are really messed up.

    How did he build the limbs when he had lost his own?

    It's easy to make bombs though. The raw materials for a crude bomb can be made from the simplest of resources.

    As far as "healthcare", his problem was with the cost of the prosthetics, which can cost several thousands of dollar more than basic healthcare.

    Probably would've cost him and arm and a leg to get his new arms; well he's already lacking arms, and i doubt he's want to give up another limb.

    Unless he built them with his feet or something lol

    Breaks my heart that my man had to endure 8 years of no arms because of poverty. Much respect to his determination and ingenuity. I hope he can find a way to help others who are suffering from the ills of poverty.
