*GOLFCLAP* submitter. That is one subtle, yet in-your-face headline.

Whoa, that is so "Eyes Without a Face".
2005-12-01 08:00:30 AM  
Make that, "Les Yeux sans Visage", and not the Billy Idol song.
2005-12-01 08:03:03 AM  
Am I the only one who noticed you have to take the "donor" face off a LIVE person.

What a horror movie nightmare.

Can you inmagine walking around with Terry Schivo's face?
2005-12-01 08:09:16 AM  
"Complications also include infections that turn the new face black and require a second transplant..."

What do they have against black people?

I'm surprised you're the only person who's mentioned that show. The similarity between that episode and this procedure is almost eerie. Life imitating art maybe?

/Tell me what you don't like about yourself.
2005-12-01 11:20:26 AM  
Michael Jackson unimpressed.
2005-12-01 11:23:21 AM  
I work for Mr. Garrison.

So I am really getting a kick really .

Some of you guys are very good at making it sound like you know what you are talking about.

But trust me.... You don't.

I think you just want to make yourself sound smart, when in reality you dont know what you are talking about.

This is how bad info gets passed around.

If you dont know about the topic....Dont make yourself sound like you do.

Cuz some farkers beleive anything they hear.

//I'm sorry. I don't really work for Mr. Garrison. I'm just trying to sound like the guy in the Jessica Simpson thread.

Even if it can be done, I wouldn't want to know I was kissing using someone elses lips

Bravo submitter!

An excellent source of face transplant donors is retired politicians who no longer need their second face.
2005-12-01 12:09:00 PM  
Soon, you too can look just like everyone else

And all this time I've been shopping at Abercrombie and Fitch.

on cnn, some yutz doctor said: "oh yeah, what the frenchies did, uh, that don't count. it's gotta be the whole face, or it don't count!"

the objectivity of science...
/can't wait till they perfect it
//can you imagine the celebrity face black market?
///'hey, i got michael jackson's face AND the elephant man's skeleton inna 2 for 1!'
////(quietly suggests problems with different skull structure/ skin fit. even more quietly wishing for someone here, more savvy than me, to organize THAT photoshop contest.)

pghjetta: I refuse to believe it... if Macnamara/Troy couldn't do it, then it can't be done

That's exactly what I was going to say!

Have at em, CastorTroy.
2005-12-01 02:10:45 PM  
You want a good John Woo movie where the good guy and bad guy steal each other's faces? Go rent Mission Impossible 2.

Off-topic for this thread since it involves latex masks and not face transplants, but much better than Face-Off.

"No more drugs for that man!"

Reminds me of this saying VW people like to throw around.
"Drive a honda and be an individual, just like all your firends."
