Themed for Valentines day, it was inspired in part by the Tin Man’s song in The Wizard of Oz.

There’s another great line in that song that goes:

“When a man’s an empty kettle, he should be on his mettle.”

And it couldn’t be any more true than in this amazing story from the Engineer where a man designs and engineers his own heart implant:

This real life tin man knew there was no one behind the curtain that was going to do the job for him so he went out and made his own heart.

We can too.

Now if we only had some brains.
