hagalaz [Note] - added vacuum nanodiamondoid circuitry note to 'EMP/taser effects section'.

   * //​Cybernetic technology, while impressive in some cases, has not advanced to the stage where it can replace damaged/​missing brain tissue or otherwise enhance or replace the brain'​s functions. ​ Likewise, the contents of your brain cannot be uploaded, destructively or otherwise, into a computer. ​ Brain death is still permanent at this time.//   * //​Cybernetic technology, while impressive in some cases, has not advanced to the stage where it can replace damaged/​missing brain tissue or otherwise enhance or replace the brain'​s functions. ​ Likewise, the contents of your brain cannot be uploaded, destructively or otherwise, into a computer. ​ Brain death is still permanent at this time.//
