[geek] 30-second science blogging - Face/Off come to life

Surgeons in France have performed the first ever face transplant:
In the controversial operation, tissues, muscles, arteries and veins were taken from a brain-dead donor and attached to the patient's lower face. Doctors stress the woman will not look like her donor, but nor will she look like she did before the [dog] attack - instead she will have a "hybrid" face.
It is unclear if either Nicolas Cage or John Travolta was the donor - though given the necessity of the donor being braindead, I'll go with Travolta... (initially seen in my RSS feed from /. this morning...)
