Acupuncture for the 21'st century

The News of the Truly Bizarre broadcast this morning included a story about a woman who went for acupuncture treatment, and found herself somewhat deflated when the practitioner punctured one of her saline implants. Vanity of vanities, etc; I still chuckle at the story. But somewhere, probably in UC Berkeley, there's a student who has just decided to write his thesis on how to reroute the lines of qi when there are foreign objects in the body, like a plate in a hip, or implants (and the differences between saline and silicone), or pacemakers. He can't lose: fame and nobody to prove him wrong!
