I Got the Mark of the Beast – And It Will Hold My Bitcoin - CoinDesk

I have no words for someone who would revel in what he describes as "taking the mark of the Beast" upon himself. This is part of something they call the "trans-humanist movement" where humans are augmented with tech to be pretend cyborgs. The Bible actually mentions something eerily similar to this in "the last days". Article below:

And just like that, I was now officially a cyborg.
