"Replace my right hand by one of their technological toys? Never!
Nothing is better than a good old hook to quell a balky cabin boy.
And at least, it's enduring, it rocks and it does not fail.
Everyone can see that I've fought, I'm not a weakling.
If I lose an eye, I'll not replace it, it's an honour to lose an eye in battle.
Then all this stuff they graft instead, it's not good...
It brings bad luck."
