I still say it's a body transplant, not a head transplant. Nobody ever said "Hey, I think I'll get a new head!"

What's the fun in that?

In Ireland he'd be called a 'cute fecker'. 

Apparently it's a cute hoor, I say fecker, it's basically means Person who quietly engineers things to their own advantage. Often called a sneaky ****e, or a snake.

Maybe the goal is to transplant George Soros head to a much younger body? Maybe not only Soros but people like him. Scary thought isn't it? Tyrants can live forever.

I can "claim progress" on my time machine.
I don't want to know how they came upon dogs and monkeys with irreversible spinal injuries... :(

I'm calling hoax.

In order to be able to successfully transplant a head, you have to be able to regrow nerves.  We're not to that stage yet.

Most of these too-good-to-be-true Chinese science stories are hoaxes, so I also see no reason to trust this one.

Since we cannot restore nerve endings in the spine to restore those that are paralyzed it is beyond obvious this is a ridiculous BS claim.

These 'doctors' keep the story going though, every few months another claim and every few months these stupid "news" sites pick it up. I guess it is a good way to keep your name out there.

My own time machine is getting there.

It's powered by beer, usually 10 beers will propel you 6 hours into the future.

Unfortunately I can't always predict where I will materialize and the effects of temporal displacement are headache and nausea!

You guys might not be able to restore nerve endings, but I can.

It is common practice when you want to pump and dump a Penny stock, or push up the price on a junk stock.
