#26: Facial Reconstruction

Isabelle Dinoire was the first person to survive a partial face transplant in 2005.  And only last month, doctors in Spain managed to perform the first successful full face transplant.  Apparently it took a 30 member medical team 24 hours to perform the operation.  

That is really very impressive, but I have to say that here in the tunnels of the NYC subway system, it only takes a team of 1, a couple of seconds to perform a similar operation.  We're just that good here in New York.
