While the final picture might be graphic (AFTER THE JUMP), it's totally astounding!
The victim was a 33 year-old man who had his face completely torn off in an accident that also crushed his jaw. He had the total face transplant only a few weeks after narrowly surviving — and just six days after the surgery, he was shown making a thumbs-up gesture from his hospital bed!
According to the doctors, it was the world's first life-saving face transplant carried out so soon after the damage. Other successful transplants took months or years to prepare, so this was pretty intense timeline-wise!
We're so glad that someone decided to donate the extra face they had lying around!
JK! LOLz! We TRULY are proud of whoever signed up to be a donor, even if they're not longer with us. It's a heroic thing to do, regardless if they've passed on!
Aimee Copeland's amount of will is being matched by the amount of technology in the world!
Just a year ago she was sailing down a homemade zip-line over the Lower Tallapoosa River, before it snapped. It cut her leg and she fell into the water — contracting a flesh eating bacteria that devastated her body. She lost both her hands, her foot, and a leg.
That didn't stop her from recovering! Such awful news would surely break others down.
A year later and she's regaining her abilities, including moving around the specially built house she has on her own — especially now that she has a pair of extremely advanced bionic hands in her arsenal!
It's insane to us that in 2013 that anybody still need to be fighting for rights — be it little or small! It's BULLSHIZZ!
Not only are lady gamers constantly fighting sexism, but badass women (or women at all) are severely under-represented in the games themselves. If they ARE there, then they have massive boobs and outfits that don't make any kind of sense!
Luckily, things are changing… but slowly.
How cool is this??
Have you ever been out golfing and shank a 5-iron across the pond to the other side? Did you hate having to walk or drive your cart all the way around??
Those days are over! You gotta check out this golf cart hovercraft (above)!! Bubba Watson and Oakley teamed up to make this ultra-quiet prototype that floats on a bubble of air that uses less pressure than a human's footprint!
That means you could drive it over a green like a boss and totally not give a shizz! LOLz!
Seriously, we want one!!
How rare is it to be born without a penis, yet still have a set of working testicles?
Andrew Wardle, a British security guard, is that ONE. He was born with his bladder outside of his body, which they successfully put back inside with surgery, but he still didn't have a penis. He's about to get one!
No, DNA isn't an abbreviation for some data storage company.
We mean deoxyribonucleic acid! You know, DNA! The stuff genes are made out of.
Researchers reported yesterday that they were able to store all 154 of Shakespeare's sonnets, a photo, a scientific paper and a 26-second sound clip from MLK's I Have a Dream speech.
Subway has come under fire after an Australian man posted a picture on the company's Facebook page.
The infamous picture, which is no longer available on their page, had a picture of a Subway "footlong" sub next to a tape measure.
It was only 11 inches.
The entire world was outraged and widespread rioting ensued.
JK obvi! But it was a big enough deal that Subway actually responded in a statement that said:
