    This isn't the horror-thriller plot of the next big Hollywood movie. It's real. And it's about to happen, much to horror of doctors around the world.

    A Chinese doctor is planning a full-body transplant.

    From the article:

    His plan: Remove two heads from two bodies, connect the blood vessels of the body of the deceased donor and the recipient head, insert a metal plate to stabilize the new neck, bathe the spinal cord nerve endings in a gluelike substance to aid regrowth and finally sew up the skin.

    I'd bet a large sum of money that this has already been attempted, as have been things we can't imagine. Wealthy companies or private individuals very well may have their own labs to try out crazy shit. There's a lot of money to be made.
    Anyone think China already has done this and knows it will be a success?

    I'd bet there's a lot of experimentation done on prisoners in human-rights challenged countries, bankrolled by incredibly rich oil barons who can easily bribe the shit out of any officials and wanna-be Dr Frankensteins.
