Brain Transplantation - Be Young Again! Change Your Body - Keep Your Soul!

hoaxes > weird
"When you car too old to fix it, you are buying a new car. Would it be wonderful if you will be able to change you human body as easy as you can change a car. Let say that your identity is a driver, and your body is a car. Moving your identity into a new, younger human body will make you young again! Brain Transplantation made it possible. We can preserve your identity by moving you brain into new body. See what we can do for you... "

The ominously Russian-flavoured broken english, the floating brain, the pictures of "recent patients", the non-disclosure of the "company's" exact location "in the Asian region",make this a glorious hoax site (or is it!!!!????).

Apparently though the whole idea is taken seriously by some scientists. More:

Q: So when will we see the first head/brain transplant in a human?

A: I have no doubt that sometime before 2050 this operation will be undertaken, perhaps sooner. A number of countries have offered me laboratories to begin the initial experiments, but they don't have the money. In terms of equipment, I've worked all that out -- I even have the equipment to support the brain in transit without compromising its vascular sensitivity. During surgical transfer you just use deep hypothermia, deep freeze, or mechanical support. It's not a problem.
