    I don't even know what to say about this.......

    A Finnish programmer who lost his finger in a motorcycle accident has now replaced it with a prosthetic finger that has a USB drive built in. Jerry Jalava can now peel back his "nail" and reveal a 2GB "finger drive" for storing photos, movies and software.

    Jalava had his left ring finger amputated last summer after crashing into a deer with his motorbike near the Finnish capital Helsinky. Given his profession as a computer programmer, the doctors treating him joked that he should have a USB "finger drive" and Jalava went for the idea.

    Jerry Jalava's 2GB USB finger looks like a normal finger, but it's detachable and he leaves it inside his computer's slot while using it. The Finnish programmer plans to "upgrade" his finger in the future with one that has a removable fingertip, an RFID tag and more storage space.
