"Your 'reality', sir, is lies and balderdash and I'm delighted to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever."

I Saw That Movie!

As reported by the BBC, the first face transplant was performed in France.

The woman had lost her nose, lips and chin after being savaged by a dog.

In the controversial operation, tissues, muscles, arteries and veins were taken from a brain-dead donor and attached to the patient's lower face.
The idea of a living face donor freaks me out, man. What a concept for a story though, huh? Imagine surviving against all the odds: they turn off the machines, you keep breathing. Impossibly, you recover from a vegetative state. Then you discover your friggin face has been given away. Then what?

The Red Bull Diary Is
The Red Bull Diary is the personal pulpit and intellectual dumping-ground for its author, an amateur game designer, professional programmer, political centrist and incurable skeptic. The Red Bull Diary is gaming, game design, politics, development, geek culture, and other such nonsense.
