Head Transplants

#1
Sergio Canavero, a doctor at the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, just published a paper looking at some recent developments in spinal cord fusion and suggesting that this means human head transplants are on their way. He puts forth a theoretical procedure that he says could enable these transplants.
The paper, entitled “HEAVEN: The head anastomosis venture Project outline for the first human head transplantation with spinal linkage,” makes a claim straight out of science fiction: that the technology required for successful human-head transplantation is finally here, and that it could be used to help people with irreparable damage to their bodies and spinal cords.

The stuff of science fiction.

What if as they search and suddenly find for a compatible donor body, turns out the be the opposite sex?


What if with good biology immune suppression drugs they offer you a body of a pig or another animal? Would you take it even as a temporary, until a better body is later found to maintain your life?

Or a black chap ends up with a white man's body and lives out the rest of his days looking like a burnt match.

You just know it's only a matter of time before fat honkers with depression will get free transplants on the NHS so they end up with a skinny new body, then 2 years later get another because the other one obviously had a thyroid problem / was big boned etc.

And at no point in time does it occur to them to stop eating processed shit and get on the exercise bike once in a while.

The idle fuckers.

I'm not sure I'd accept an animals body, even if it was temporary.
I mean, yeah, licking my own balls would be sweet for a day or 2 and just laying about doing fuck all would be cool for about a week, but I just couldn't bring myself to lick my own arse clean, and trying to wipe my shitbox with a paw, especially one that has claws on the cunt, is going to end in a total disaster.

Knowing my luck, I'd end up with my quite spectacular melon, grafted onto the body of a scrawny smackhead, I'd have all kinds of shit going wrong and all my muscle memory would revolve around swiping old ladies purses and heading off to the local drug dealers gaff........

Can I have the body of a 20 year old female gymnast? No need for a transplant, I won't need it long ... About 3.7 seconds going by past performance.

it's been happening for years. There's a slack handful of 'laydees' in the AGC with men's heads.

Can I have Tom Daley's body to use accordingly.
Congratulations Mr Jarrod, the operation was a complete success, we were surprised at your request, but we aim to please at Death Valley NHS Trust. However can you tell us why you wanted Arthur Daley's body?

My sister in law has already had that done, not only has she had a pig head transplant she has gone the whole hog and had the body transplanted as well.

Always check the paperwork and read it carefully before signing for anything...

Ah so that's why a lot of 90's club doormen had "Cut here" tattoos around their necks, they weren't steroid psychos trying to look hard with prison tats, they were visionaries who had seen the future, pioneers of the medical world....
