That's a good point. It depends on the material. Things like surgical steel, gold and silver, and silicone, are already inert in the body and dont get the same reaction. You see this with joint implants and such. Bullets tend to be made of more "reactive" materials like copper and lead that the body doesn't like. That's not to say there won't be issues with NeuroLink, but the material rejection aspect is a solvable issue.

does the same apply to hot air balloons? They're cheaper and you don't have to have a license.

Contrary to popular belief they dont usually pull bullets out unless it's either very close to the skin, and thus easy to pop out, or if it (or a fragment) is dangerously close to a vital organ. The wound itself is generally sterile considering the heat of the round going in and bullets (even lead ones) are essentially inert in the body, since the body will just calcify, if walling it off from the rest of your insides. They've found that really you're just introducing bacteria and contaminants, and creating a larger wound, when you root around, so simply closing and bandaging the wound if necessary is usually the best option. Now if they have to open you up to fix internal damage they'll take out anything they find, but they rarely if ever go digging just to get the bullet itself, and often there are fragments left.

Back in the day most cases of infection were from puncturing of organs that they didn't have the technology to fix, lack of sterile procedure, lack of general care, poor hygiene, dirty water, and doctors putting his fingers in you bullet holes right after cutting off a gangrenous limb from the poor bastard who was in line before you.

The whole "you gotta remove it or they'll die" thing is mostly a movie trope.

I would counter that they would be saying "I told you this exact thing would happen" if they were alive today. There isn't anything new about what our government is doing other than the level of technology. They knew and they told us so. Look at Rome, look at Europe, look at the Middle East, and Asia. There's nothing new under the sun in this regard.

he shut down a good portion of his business while he was in office. Most of what he lost was opportunity cost. But while his net worth went down in office, he's made up a bunch since then.

Have a link https://www.contemporaryobgyn.net/view/first-menstruation-average-age-and-physical-signs

Relevant paragraph referencing a chart in said link

"Your actual mileage may vary. So, the chart below gives the events and their ranges. The average age for periods in the U.S. is 12.16 for black girls and 12.88 for whites. By age 11, 28% of black girls and 13.5% of whites menstruate. By age 12, 62% of blacks, and 35% of whites."

This is probably bullshit, but if anyone wants an argument as to why this would never happen.

Pregnancy at age 10 is considered inherently very risky due to lack of development and reduced size of the mother. (taking nutrients from a growing mother, guaranteed C-section, etc.) You would be hard pressed to to find any medical doctor would NOT recommend terminating, especially if it was only 6 weeks in.

They're playing with the facts. It's true that there aren't baby stem cells actually IN the vaccine. However we use fetal clones (cells from dead babies) to TEST vaccines and all sorts of things. So it's factual, but not truthful.

OK being objective, I kind of dig the outfit. Got a New Orleans Voodoo vibe to it, but more importantly, blacks didn't vote to end slavery, white people did, and women didn't vote to get equal rights, men did.

I see this as an absolute win. I'm not a Jake Paul fan at all, but I see what he is in pop culture right now, and he's huge with kids. If he's genuine or not, him talking like this to kids (Zoomers) wins them to our side. Hell, it's probably better news if he IS grifting, because that means this is the message that is selling, which means we're winning.
