markust123: It`s more than that. It brings us big news, science and debates, too. But yes, lots of lulz.

"F!uck you, cyborg, you damned preteen."

He was just trying to be funny. His was the best line I`ve seen on here all week, "did she get the face of retarded women?"

IAB is a humor site after all. Something a lot of us forget - me included.

Nice stealing of Jim Jeffries line of being the most recognizable person in the room Revolutioniz, only he was talking about a burn victim.
And as for the idiots that were just trying to get a reaction from other about saying stupid comments like what did she get a face of a retard and such.
No reaction here just rolling my eyes and thinking expected from internet trolls.

That last line read, `Do us all a favor"

Oh, and Gerry. You can join Klamz. It is sad to see some people just have no common decency or heart when it comes to the pain and suffering of others. This is why I want to become a police officer. I can take those kinds of people off the street and let them meet others of their kind.

Hey Klamz. Right now, they are trying to get a face that is functional while she recovers. After so many surgeries, they probably thought in her best interests to let her rest. It is a tedious surgery to replace a face, especially with so many delicate muscles, nerves, and capillaries. They did an amazing job, and are very optimistic. That is a very real success in their department, and I am sure, when her doctors feel like she is recovered and strong enough to undergo more surgery, they will recommend it. She looks amazing now. Imagine what she will look like when everything is done. My heart goes out to her and her family. Keep fighting the good fight, and, from what I hear, they are finding ways to recover eyesight in people with a camera in a tooth, wired directly into the brain. Won`t be perfect, but she would be able to see again.

Amazing story, and she has an amazing will to live.

Klamz. You are an ignorant child with no human dignity or respect. Do us all a f

I work at the Cleveland Clinic in a non-clinical role, and saw this woman frequently during her recovery. Her bravery was one of the most impressive things I have ever witnessed.

Klamz: you are showing your complete lack of life experience and maturity. Eventually, you will have a painful experience of the realities of life and the limitations of medicine. Until then, stfu.

Have you ever seen a person with their face ripped off? Most recognizable person in the room, guaranteed.

This whole story is utterly tragic. The chimp who had a bad reaction to his Lyme Disease medication, the woman who had her face and hands permanently disfigured, and the owner who had to stab his own chimp to save his friend. Truly awful.

@Klamz, are you serious?

This is the second person to receive a face transplant. It`s not minor edits of a person.

With 20 doctors assisting, I *think* they knew what they were doing. Did you see her face before the surgery, after the chimp ripped it off?

Your condescension astounds me.

Is that seriously the best they can do to make it actually look like a face?

I`ve seen better clay sculptures after they were smashed.

She`s had her doctors and she`s alive, now for the love of public appearance please give her a plastic surgeon who knows what they`re doing.
