OT: Nominations PLEASE! Face transplants!

You heard it here first folks!

Here's the FoxNews article: Face transplant. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/headspin.gif[/img]

<font color="purple">Fact truly is stranger than fiction.</font>

Psuedo-poll:

Just for the heckuvit, 'WHO?' would <u>YOU</u> want to look like if you could? (If someone famous, at what age of the individual would you want to 'purloin' his/her appearance?)

I would not mind having John Wayne's looks, but don't really have the height to do it justice. Age-wise, probably his late-30's/early-40's.

Re: OT: Nominations PLEASE! Face transplants!

I read that yesterday. I think its a great idea for people who have been severly disfigured. For the non-disfigured though I think its foolish. The article also said that facial features would remain mostly like the person the face is being transplanted onto since facial features are not held in the skin but below in the bone and muscle. Its really nothing more like a skin graft from a dead guy to your face.

Now who would I want to look like? Nobody but myself. I can't imagine looking in the mirror and seeing someone else.

Re: OT: Nominations PLEASE! Face transplants!

OUCH!

could you imagine how much that would hurt to have your FACE RIPPED OFF??? sweet mother of pearl! hook me up to the morphine drip please!!!! I got punched in the eye once (i know, hard to believe someone would do that to ME, smote him good though) and that wasnt so coool.....I imagine this would feel like someone just spend a few hours beating your face with a 2x4

ugh! no thanks!!! prolly look lovely when you're healing too! all purple and black and blue.......

then imagine if your body rejects the tissue! it could REJECT YOUR FACE! normally only girls do that!

Man! thats messed up....i'm done

Re: OT: Nominations PLEASE! Face transplants!

Hmmm, my face is OK for now. I'm waiting for the perfection of the operation to LOWER my sex drive.

From my head down to where it belongs!
