Dual-Head

And I don't mean two monitors.

Did you see this story about surgeons removing a girl's second head?

Thinking about a parasitic head attached to the side of someone's skull independantly blinking and smiling gives me the willies.

Holy crap. I'm sorry, but that's disgusting. Here's your baby, ma'am...oh, and don't mind the extra head. Just give it a slip of food every now and then and it shouldn't turn vicious.

Oh. dear. lord. What I want to know is - what did they do with the spare head?

How could they cut the head off while it was looking around and blinking? Does a second head go to sleep when the host body is put under?

It turns my stomach just thinking about it.

Call me callous, but I'm not even going to click on that picture link.

I happened to be channel surfing the other night and there was this program on that was about a guy who had no face. I didn't see the whole thing but he basically had a hole in his head where his eyes and nose should be. No, I don't know how that works. The program lead up to the point where he got a prosthetic face! It was just a nose and eyes that could be snapped on and off of his skull. Willies indeed.

Oh you should click on the picture link. It was worse then what I was envisioning when I read the article.

How else will you know what a parasitic head really looks like?
