First, the book's title was a horrible pun.. "Lets Face it"

And second, the lady at the end spoke like she smoked cigs for 50 years, and killed her voicebox.

I was heart broken at the part where she said some people didn't want to leave the house because they were afraid to.
That's so sad. I hope they keep going with this and help people. :D

I think this is a great thing, if it's used for what it was intended for, instead of prople who just want a new face, and have money to buy it.
And yeah, that guy did look like Cleaveland. Like that guy in the Geico commercials sounds like him (y'know, the one that's got his feet in the pool)

As far as the topic of the story goes, it is extraordinary what the advances in the technology and medical fields have provided for aforementioned patients in the film.

The really interesting story will be 50-80 years down the road when the world experiences its first major energy crisis. I only hope to live long enough to see what our global leaders do. Its really my life long experiment, seeing how the world reacts to major changes as a race.

I would like to also say that the team that performed the surgery on the black male in the video did an exceptional job. It's very unfortunate that these things usually happen to really nice people. If only diseases and mishaps fell upon those in our world that really deserve it, then I would somehow feel better by it.

OMFG, it looks like that lady is from that episode of "The Twilight Zone", where they try to make this girl look more conformist sort of like a monkey.

Just coming off a 12 hour shift I guess it did not surprise me that I thought it said 'Surgeons Hail Breakthroughs in Faceplants.' when I read the title quickly.

Please, do not mistake my intent. The efforts being made with this research is extraordinary! I must say, however, the woman with the first face transplant looks better than the 'before' image, no?

I really hope that, in time, they can make faces look even better than that. I mean, they are still obviously scarred or disfigured (although much better), so hopefully, they can find ways to make them appear at least natural.

"If this procedure takes off, there are going to be a lot of interesting people walking among us"

like there isnt allready..anyway. I'm all for it..as a willing organ donor, if I'm dead, it's useless to me and if I can save or help another person in death then at least thats something!

I don't see how you're being rude. And I'm sure that's their main goal. They want it to look more realistic, more natural, and less visible. I mean, yeah, it's better from what it was (by a LOT), but it can't hurt to make even less scar tissue and visible lines.

I hope they get better at the transplants so there is less proof of the surgery in the results. The woman who first had the surgery looked okay, but you could still see a clear line of where the face was grafted and it seemed unmoveable.
I'm not trying to be rude if that's what I'm coming off as. ^_^;

I got my ear bit off by a dog, it's really far from hard (when you're younger, anyway).

Primetime: You better be crapping cures to diseases and growing reusable energy in your back yard then AND sharing it.
