Just seems a bit ... inefficient. Who's gonna grow these brainless bodies for 20 years? No religious wackjobs are going to find a problem with this?

Anyways, this stuff is decades-old.

If you read TFA they mention about the monkey heads, but they also mention that the spinal cord couldn't be repaired. Supposedly TFA is saying they can repair the spinal cord now, or at least are on the way to being able to.

Fark the religious whackjobs.

If it can be done for a profit, and if it actually becomes feasible to do the transplant, you know damn well there will be some company out there salivating like Pavlov's dogs at the dinner bell to start growing bodies at a huge customer cost.

Do I have to keep the whole head?  Would putting my 40 yr old head on my own cloned 20 yr old body rejuvenate the wrinkles and grey hairs?

So many questions...

Finally someone who isn't deluded about his 40 year old self.

I have this theory. It might be nuts but bear with me.

The human body is an almost water-tight bag of protein, fats, and carbs that keeps itself at 37C +- 2C for decades.

This is called sous vide cooking.

I think one of the main mechanisms of aging is the accumulation of biochemically inert AGE molecules.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_glycation_end-product

These are just harmless enough to let you live a few decades and let you reproduce. There's no evolutionary pressure to get rid of them.

These molecules "gum up" the works, so to speak. You lose elasticity in your skin, for one. I suspect that they also represent 5-10% of your body mass as you age.

We have chemicals to break these molecules.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alagebrium

They don't seem to work as well as expected, but why we aren't dancing in the streets that we can even contemplate doing this baffles me.

I'd think that getting a new body swapped in would feel great, but maybe won't do much to get rid of the AGE molecules in your face and brain.

That's why I prefer that we actually understand what the hell is going on in aging before swapping Hugh Hefner's head onto a teenager's body.

If the point of the break through is being able to repair spines, then why not start with paralyzed folks? There so many people that could be helped so much faster than a head transplant. Besides, we already have a place growing headless bodies. We call it government officials.

I could suspend disbelief about the cloning and the undiscovered secret community-college campus, but I couldn't get past the part about them not being used for menial factory labor.

Good idea. Thing is, some paralyzed people are happy the way they are. Really. It's hard to understand. There is a wheelchair athlete in Quebec that was asked this on TV. If we could fix her problem, would she do it? She said no.

I have believe she only said that because we can't actually fix that yet.

That's a good point, of all the obvious plot holes in the film I never considered that one.

Did anyone see Michael Bay's remake? Did he resolve the plot holes, or did he just add explosions and car chases?

If they can transplant my head onto a robot body when I'm dying, thus saving my life and allowing me to live another 300 years, I'd be happy to go through the procedure.

If they can upload my consciousness into the Internet when my body gives out, I'd be happy with that, too.

If we can accept that atoms don't have an age and therefore biological "age" is a construct, I'd be happy to keep my body young.

Before reading the article and comments, I am just coming to say I hope this is about shipping human heads (and shmnan farms heads of lettuce) for research.

I think having someone else's organs would be weird enough.  Having a body part, like a hand, would be even weirder.  Having someone else's entire body...the implications are brain-busting (but all the weirdness is probably better than the alternative).  You'd have scars you wouldn't know the origin of (well, drink for long enough and anyone would).  Would you try to learn the donor's family's medical history (orphans may not even know their own)?  A homophobic head-transplantee could never masturbate again, he'd be jacking someone else's (but it's someone else's hand doing it, so it's okay...as long as he doesn't look)!
