Most people will watch this video and see a bunch of drunken idiots that should have fallen victim to natural selection years ago. Not me. I see hope. Hope for my future. Hope for the future of all my fellow 30 somethings. You see, (more…)


Remember that homeless guy that had his face eaten off by that other homeless guy on bath salts? Well here’s a couple pics documenting his miraculous recovery.  Almost like it never happened outside of a few scars…but scars leave character… (more…)

[Daily News]  A 37-year-old Virginia man injured in a 1997 gun accident has been given a new face, teeth, tongue and jaw in what University of Maryland physicians say is the most extensive face transplant ever performed. University of Maryland Medical Center officials announced Tuesday that Richard Lee Norris of Hillsville is recovering well after last week’s surgery, beginning to feel his face and already brushing his teeth and shaving. He’s also regained his sense of smell, which he had lost after the accident. Norris has spent the past 15 years living as a recluse, and the transplant will give him his life back, said Dr. Eduardo Rodriguez, the lead surgeon. “It’s a surreal experience to look at him. It’s hard not to stare. Before, people used to stare at Richard because he wore a mask and they wanted to see the deformity,” Rodriguez said. “Now, they have another reason to stare at him, and it’s really amazing.” The 36-hour operation included transplantation of the teeth, tongue, upper and lower jaw and all facial tissue from the scalp to the base of the neck, Rodriguez said. Because it included so much facial tissue, the incisions are farther back and less visible, he said. Officials provided little detail on Norris or the circumstances of the accident that took his face. He graduated from high school in his small southwest Virginia hometown in 1993 and was employed at the time of the accident. Since then, he has lived with his parents and has not had a full-time job, Rodriguez said. “This accidental injury just destroyed everything. The rest of his friends and colleagues went on to start getting married, having children, owning homes,” Rodriguez told The Associated Press. “He wants to make up for all of that.”

Hey pal, I understand the last 15 years have sucked balls but how about showing a little excitement & appreciation?  You got a brand new face.  A little enthusiasm for Dr. Eduardo Rodriguez, maybe?  The old you might not have been as handsome but at least you had some fun making silly faces for the camera.   (more…)

[MSNBC]  Meredith Vieira couldn’t stop staring at Charla Nash’s face. That’s nothing new for Nash – nearly three years after a horrific chimp attack literally tore her face off, she’s gotten used to people staring. What was new was the reason for the attention. “Wow. You really look fantastic,” Vieira told Nash. “I’m just—I— I apologize. I’m looking at your face and I am in awe.” After a full face transplant, Nash has begun venturing out into public again, no longer worried her severely disfigured face would frighten people. On Monday, she revealed that new face in an exclusive interview on TODAY. As the donor face has begun molding to Nash’s underlying bone structure, Nash has begun returning to more of her normal life. She particularly remembered one day she went to the store with her brother. While shopping they ran into a little girl, who said hello to Nash. “That didn’t happen before,”  Nash told Vieira. “It was nice. The little girl was saying hi to me.  I looked like I’ve got eyes and everything. …I’m not scaring anybody.” Because she was permanently blinded in the attack, Nash cannot see her own face. She can’t even feel it because the attack also took her hands. So she has to depend on the feedback of others. “I’ve had people tell me I’m beautiful,” Nash told Vieira. “And they were not telling me I was beautiful before.”

Charla I hate to break it to you, sweetheart, but you’re taking this whole “you’re beautiful” thing outta context.  No one told you that before because you were on a playing field with billions of other normal broads you couldn’t hold a candle to.  But now?   (more…)

I can watch this all day.  How is this guy’s name not in the news by now?  I figured he’d have his 15 minutes after getting the NFL logo branded on his forehead on Monday Night Football.  Kid was rocked.

Boley hates white people.

[Yahoo]  Florida Marlins third baseman Greg Dobbs spent an hour at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens, visiting a 12-year-old boy who was injured Monday night when Dobb’ line-drive foul ball struck him in the face. The boy received eight stitches to his broken nose and suffered a fractured sinus after the ball struck him in the ninth inning of the Marlins’ 2-1 loss to the Mets in game one at Citi Field. Dobbs said doctors told him the boy will not lose eyesight and will make a complete recovery. “I just wanted to show the kid how bad I feel for him,” said Dobbs, who called the boy’s mom after Monday’s games. “Just for the kids sake I just wanted to show him my face and let him know I care about him and how he is doing. I just wanted to see him and tell him he’s in my thoughts and prayers.” Dobbs said the boy was in good spirits considering his injury. “He said he’s more of a soccer fan. … He wants to try out for hockey. But he’s not that big of a Mets fan. He’s more of a Yankees fan,” Dobbs said.

Well that explains a lot.  A soccer-playing Yankees fan?  Try a little less My Little Pony at home and spend a little more time having a catch in the backyard, fruitcake.  Maybe next time, instead of ball(s) to the face, you’ll actually make an effort to catch it.  And good luck at hockey tryouts Sally.  Only Canadian gays have any success on the ice, but I guess there are worse role models than Sean Avery.

I know another soccer-loving Yankees homo who botched a foul ball

[TC Palm]  A 24-year-old woman told a deputy her husband hit her in the face with a peanut butter sandwich — a lunch staple of kindergarten students nationwide — during an argument over money, according to a recently released report. After a Martin County Sheriff’s deputy arrived June 10, the woman “still had some peanut butter on the side of her face and in her hair,” the report states. The woman said she and her 26-year-old spouse got in a dispute over money during which he “struck her with a peanut butter sandwich in the face,” the report states. The report didn’t specify whether the peanut butter was creamy, crunchy or extra crunchy, nor did it state whether the bread was white, wheat, whole grain, cinnamon raisin, a baguette, pan de Cuba, challah, sourdough, a bagel, a bun, gluten-free or naan. The woman notified authorities because she was afraid things could get more violent as the argument got heated. The husband, however, told deputies his wife struck him. No one reported being injured or complained of pain. Citing a lack of independent witnesses and conflicting accounts, investigators made no arrests. The husband left the home for the day.

This better not have been Jif.  Anyone who thinks there’s a peanut butter better than Jif can go hang yourselves right now.  Therefore, Jif on your wife’s face is a complete and utter waste.  So I’m gonna tackle this as if we’re dealing with a reasonable man who knows better than to waste what choosy moms choose.   (more…)
