Weird Or Cool?

WETA Workshop (of Lord of the Rings fame) turns a legless woman into a mermaid (sort of).

You gotta love random stories like these. I never know whether I think they are cool or just plain weird. The part of me that thinks it is cool is the part that likes unique creations and explorations in art and science. The other part is the one that wonders why on Earth this woman wanted to be a mermaid so badly. That is a little creepy. Anyway, weird or not, I'm glad that WETA was able to help her fulfill that dream.

My lifelong dream has always been to be a centaur. Do you think they would make me prosthetic hooves?

Is there any video of her swimmming around in that?

Where was I when you posted this?! How cool is that...but it is kind of creepy that she would want that.
Oh by the way...I tagged you. Just go to my blog for the rules. I'm really interested in seeing what picture you use.
