Wow, I wanna know if this is successful.
 
30-year-old man agrees to full head transplant
Valery Spiridinov, a 30-year-old Russian man with the severely debilitating Werdnig-Hoffmann disease, intends to undergo the world’s first human head transplant. The doctor who plans to perform the surgery – which would take place in 2017 – is Dr. Sergio Canavero, a confident neurosurgeon from Italy who claims the procedure can be done in one day and will have a 90 percent chance of success. 

The surgery, which was unsuccessfully performed on monkeys in the 1970s, is divided into three stages.
In the first stage the body must be chilled to 10-20 degrees.
The second stage involves cutting the spinal cord.
And in the third stage the nerves and blood vessels must all be woven back together before putting the patient into a coma for a few weeks.

The biggest concern doctors have is whether or not Spiridinov’s brain will still function after the surgery.

The greatest opportunity I've seen to revitalize hope that a natural equilibrium crucial to our survival as a species can begin to be restored for the bee kingdom.

Best all around dual sport, 50/50, gear hauler, passenger hauler, motorcycle of the zombie apocalype that gets 50 miles per gallon on/off road for a max 250 miles stock. It's either this or something like a vstrom as a first bike in my book.

Hmmm right before infamous JADE HELM 15 this summer... Dun dun DUN!!! Brace yourself, conspiracy theories are coming.
 
There was gunfire in front of the Dallas Police Department headquarters as a suspect rammed police cars and attempted to flee. The standoff at Interstate 45 that followed involved a SWAT team.

+Jonas Avrin 9/11 was a boob job. The Kardashians went back in time and drone striked Hitler. Alex Jones is really a godless liberal undercover to divert us from the truth! This is all a hallucination. Halp

because horsepower.
 
The Finnish manufacturer #Toroidion unveiled the purely #electric 1,341 HP #Toroidion 1MW Electric Concept #Supercar at the 2015 Top Marques show in #Monaco . The 1MW Concept, named after its #power figure 1000 kW or 1341 hp uses 4 electric motors which are driving directly each wheel. According to founder Pasi Pennanen, the front axle houses a pair of 200 kW (268 hp) motors and the rear another pair of 300 kW (402 hp) ones. Toroidion also claims that their all-new electric powertrain is able to offer different levels of power for different applications while the batteries of the system are easily swappable “in the pit-lane as it is in the home garage”.
