May 9, 2011: Face Off/Face On

America's first full facial transplant recipient is looking good. And he can smell! As this surgery goes from strength to strength, it becomes obvious just how "worth it" it is.

Incredible.

Apparently the military have funded much of this, as they're hoping that such techniques can be used with injured soldiers.

I think that's fucking awesome. So often the big story is that soldiers have been let down, abandoned or disregarded after their service has been brought to a violent end.

D'Onofrio was also the creepy psychopath in The Cube. I have never been able to watch anything else he's in without thinking of scenes from that movie.
