Guy Gets Fined for Implanting Metro Card Chip In Arm

33-year old biohacker Meow-Ludo Disco Gamma Meow-Meow (which is coincidentally what I call my cat) was recently charged $220 by transportation authorities in Sydney, Australia for implanting the chip from an Opal metro card in his arm and “using public transport without a valid ticket and for not producing a ticket to transport officers.”

It was a brilliant plan. Plus he was on his way to becoming the ultimate cyborg. Sadly, it just didn’t work out and he got caught. His lawyer argued that transport legislation had advanced to include methods of contactless payment through MasterCard and some smartphones. But the judge said that while the legislation may catch up with technology in the future, the law of the day needed to be followed. Plus, he clearly hates cyborgs.

Mr Meow Meow says that he’s planning on replacing his Opal chip with one that will hold all of his personal information, including credit cards and memberships. That’ll show ’em.

If this guy wants to be a cyborg and save time by not looking for his card, who cares? Just as long as he doesn’t become a cyborg supervillain and terrorize us all. Though we couldn’t take a villain with his name seriously.
