Hopefully we can get tot he point where we can use a giant 3-d printer that uses cells to “print” a new body so donor body issues would be eliminated...

If the body has no head, therefore no consciousness, I would call it a head transplant, transplanting the consciousness to a new body.....

It would present a problem with fingerprints, though.......retinal scan would have to be the true identifying media.......

At least we have a bunch of brainless bodies walking around to experiment on. Democrats shouldn’t mind losing their heads. After all, this is for the “greater good”.

This scene always made me think of Nuns.

Or the laboratory scene in Wilder's "Frankenstein".

Can you imagine a ‘Body Store’ where you could ‘shop’ for a new body?........

Each surgeon would be paid 3600 bucks an hour.

How many people can stand around one person?

this is not science, its a con job.

If this is successfully introduced you’re going to have amoral billionaires window shopping strangers, I hope people realize this. Maybe not in this country, but it will happen.

Percy Shelley's teenaged bride, pretty well captured the thinking of these people. This sort of thing, in my opinion, should be left to those who make horror movies, today.

Old and fat people (like me) will be safe. People who look like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will be in mortal danger.......

I have had three serious operations, at various hospitals around the state. You'd be surprised.......especially when the bills come in from people you've never met........

The ‘procedure’ needs two living heads and two living bodies. Or one that died within the hour.

They are going to try it. There will be a lot of horrible failures before they reveal what they have done. They will hide those failures.

One question they haven’t answered. When the ‘living’ head says that the pain is too much, the horrible mismatch between the brain’s perceptions and the body’s is too much and asks to die, what will they do? Will they be tried for murder?

You can bet your sweet bippy that this guy is going to try it.

A body, sans head, can be kept 'alive' for quite a while through artificial means....

I think there is a point when people should quit while they’re a head.

Rosie Grier was so funny in “The Thing With Two Heads”. When he shows up at his girlfriend’s place with an extra head, all she can say is,

“You get yourself into more s$#%....!”

I’m thinking Stephen Hawking’s head on the body of some athletic Hollywood celebrity who hasn’t done too many drugs.

For some real fun, they should graft a woman’s head onto a man’s body (or vice versa). How would you learn to use the other sex’s “parts”?
