World's first human head transplant a success, controversial scientist claims
he world's first human head transplant has allegedly been performed on a corpse in an 18 hour operation which successfully connected the spine, nerves and blood vessels of two people.
The operation was carried out by a team led by Dr Xiaoping Ren of Harbin Medical University, China, who last year successfully grafted a head onto the body of a monkey.
Italian Professor Sergio Canavero, Director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, who has been working with the team, said they would 'imminently' move onto a living human who was paralysed from the neck down....
ยกI'd change my heart, But I can't! "LORD! ยฟHow can I ever supplant- Constant wicked desire- Dooming me to the fire?" So Christ gave a Gracious Implant
Ez11:19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:
Ezekiel 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. -/ Ps73:26 "My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever" --

Let me tell you something, Dave...I'm sure there are those who agree, while they polish their halos and snicker over how unrefined others are. I'll take your brand of Christianity any day over people who call themselves Christians, yet suffer from a coldness and bitterness the likes of which I've never seen. You lead by example in several basic ways, and those ways are humbleness, meekness of spirit, kindness, a forgiving nature, and a genuine empathy and concern for not only the lost, but your fellow Christian. Don't ever lose those qualities; qualities others reserve only for those they deem fit. I don't have to tell you that this isn't how it works. Selective love? Selective forgiveness? Selective kindness, empathy, and patience? Nope.
Hey, how about that, Dave. People like you and me are probably rougher around the edges than many, given our past. You'd never know it by the way I try to speak here because I'm always working on myself, but I def have my rough edges. Anyway, Imagine that...God can even use us. Huh.
Thanks Christopher, funny thing is, when I knocked on his door he wouldn't come have yarn with. For a big tattooed bearded loudmouth he became rather sheepish this morning. Bright side, my boss and 2 co-workers sat down last night, and knowing me, they inquired as to why I didn't give him a clip, to which I explained God has changed me. So they really got inquisitive about Jesus. Praise the Lord
Will do, Dave...can't take on the whole world though. Some guys become 30 feet tall when they're drinking and any filters disappear. People like that probably don't have filters when they're sober even, they just say it all louder when they drink. I've never understood hate and it's never come out of my mouth. Ignorant people hate.
I turn my back for 2 min and this is what I return to! ๐ฅ I'll have you know that my nose hair is quite sufficient for a head covering. Serious though, I just woke up, we're staying away for work, and this creep at the swimming pool last night was nothing more than belligerent bohemian, trying to stand over explaining how he hates Jews and Hitler did the world a favour, well the big goon was real heroic last night as he was full of grog, I'm going to say good morning to him and see if he would like to retract his statements regarding Christians and Jews. Pray for me, please
Hey Rodney, you reminded me of this guy who did odd jobs cleaning, etc., for a dentist friend. I always find it interesting how something shocking can look perfectly normal over time, seeing ourselves every day, or much less shocking as we get used to something about someone else the more often we see them. This man, most obviously, had a completely bald dome, but...he grew the hair on one side of his head, and also the bottom rear, I don't know, each must have been 2-3 feet long. He then wrapped them around his head, flipped what was left from the rear of his head over the top, making it appear as some sort of bangs, and then hairsprayed it all down. One of the strangest attempts at hair wrapping that I had ever seen then or since.

His hair-wrap actually stuck out from his forehead like the bill of a baseball cap. I used to accuse him of using Elmer's glue in his hair. But now I can't help but wonder if he was actually using Vegermite. Hmmmm....
You knew Homer?! Wow...was he as yellow in person as on TV? The worst case of jaundice I have ever seen. So Dave is related to the Simpsons? There's the connection!

Poor kid.
Poor Dave...you know there are special treatments for that these days. If I remember, it takes a week with some aboriginals, a boomerang and...oh yeah, a loin cloth. Seems to work. as for the big head, I have one too unfortunately. It's so big in fact, it pulls smaller objects into an orbit around it if I'm not careful. If Dave and I ever meet, we might have a supernova happen!
