EXCLUSIVE: Revealed, the terminally ill man set to be first to undergo the world's first full HEAD transplant pioneered by doctor branded 'nuts'

A man with a fatal medical condition has spoken exclusively to MailOnline about how he is set to become the first person to undergo a head transplant and hopes it could be as soon as next year.
Valery Spiridonov says he is ready to put his trust in controversial surgeon Dr Sergio Canavero who claims he can cut off his head and attach it to a healthy body

Read about head transplants a couple of months ago they said they'd be ready to start them in 2017

I would absolutely pay money to see Dr Zaius try out this procedure on Manbush.

Bushy's more likely to allow said procedure to be undertaken by some random bloke from the internet who possesses medical opinion pieces, over, you know, a qualified doctor in Zaius.

Good grief, Nick, haven't you been paying attention around these parts over the past couple of years?

Sort it out, would you!?

Hahaha yeah, Bushy would let a bloke cut his head off, provided he shares the same love of smoking bongs.

That article didn't mention it but in the 70s they actually did a head transplant on a monkey(read it in a previous article about head transplants), couldn't attach the spinal cord so the monkey couldn't move and only survived about a week when the transplant was rejected.

Yes I'm ignoring you ****.

Surely you'd need a few bongs before attempting the procedure.

Head transplants have come along way in the past little while since transplant surgeons have recognised the magical rejuvenating powers of weed. Progress in this area has only been held back by backwards governments not allowing weed to be used in the post operative course.

I suppose this goes here - basically it's a story about a school principal who gave parents 'what for' because the parents' kids were absent from school for 3 days while on vacation:

Mr Rossi sounds like a bit of a **** wit if you ask me. The school was just doing their job and his response is a condescending and insulting diatribe that he also felt warranted being posted on social media.

Tend to agree with you GEM, the letter was bad enough but posting it was poor form in an attempt to big note himself and shame the school.
