In 2189 it is a social norm to have your legs amputated and replaced with even better top-notch artificial legs. This can increase a persons speed by 75%, make them jump 360% higher and allows even the old to do parkour. This has no long term consequences as technology to regrow limbs has existed since 2066. Although the first ampuatation of legs optionally for artificial legs happened in 2035, and over 385,000 between that time and 2066. These people went into the operating room sacrificing their legs for something as trivial as wanting to be taller, shorter, faster or to jump higher.
